Tummy Tuck in Mexico City

The Ultimate Guide to Tummy Tuck in Mexico City

Last fact-checked: 14 December 2019

If you've reached a plateau having followed a strict diet and exercise regime, the answer to getting a flatter stomach could be to head abroad for an affordable tummy tuck in Mexico City.

Medically known as an "abdominoplasty", this common procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area to give you the flat stomach you’ve always wanted... but have never been able to achieve through diet and exercise.

Is a Tummy Tuck for Me?

A taut, flat stomach is not only considered beautiful and desirable but also is a sign of a healthy and fit person. Getting six-pack abs is not possible for everybody, but by undergoing a simple, affordable surgical procedure, such as tummy tuck in Mexico, you can achieve their dream look and head home feeling so much better about your body.

To remove excess skin, especially after significant weight loss, no amount of time in the gym is going to shift it, meaning surgery is the only option.

It should be noted here that a tummy tuck is not liposuction, which is a different treatment that essentially breaks down fat under the skin and ‘sucks’ it out. Having said that, some patients can benefit from undergoing both liposuction and a tummy tuck, depending on their surgeon's advice. 

Why Should You Have a Tummy Tuck in Mexico City?

For patients living in the US and Canada, Mexico City is a nearby and affordable option. There are numerous, cheap flights going to Mexico City during the week, and it is also easy to get there via car if you live in a southern US state. 

Mexico City has well-trained, qualified cosmetic surgeons who often have international and national memberships with respected organizations. 

The affordability of surgery and level of expertise are factors not only drawing in North Americans to Mexico but also patients from all over the globe. Medical Departures is making the process of finding a reputable clinic easier, as well as facilitating other aspects of your trip, such as organizing travel and insurance. We connect patients to quality-checked medical facilities, which include patient reviews and confirmations of qualifications and professional memberships, as well as checking for criminal and legal records.

Only when a clinic or hospital has cleared all of our tests and who we list it on our site -- and this applies not only for Mexico but dozens of other countries around the world that are attract medical tourists.

Who Can Have a Tummy Tuck?

Tummy tuck surgery is a viable option for both men and women. It is especially beneficial for people who have recently lost a lot of weight but still have excess skin hanging from their abdomens. A tummy tuck can help such people in removing the excess skin and achieving a flawless body.

Any woman who has given birth will know the struggle of getting rid of excess fat and skin post-pregnancy, which is why a tummy tuck is a great option for women who have gone through several pregnancies. Women who are planning on future childbirth in the future should wait till they are done as pregnancy stretches out muscles and it will negate all effects of a tummy tuck.

Also, people who plan on losing weight should wait till they have achieved their ideal weight before having a tummy tuck; this is because this procedure should not be taken as a method to lose weight.

It is also important to note here that a tummy tuck will leave a scar after the surgery. If this is something that you do not want, then you should reconsider your options.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

There are several types of tummy tucks, including:

  • Complete abdominoplasty: this option is for patients who require the most correction and involves making a long incision on the abdomen from hipbone to hipbone. It also requires moving the belly button.
  • Mini or partial abdominoplasty: this procedure is carried out for people who have fat deposits below the navel and require shorter incisions. The belly button will most likely not be moved.
  • Circumferential abdominoplasty: this procedure involves the removal of fat and skin from the back region. This improves the shape of your body from all sides and creates balance.

Depending on the type of procedure you’re undergoing, a tummy tuck can take from 45 minutes to three hours. A mini-abdominoplasty will take less time, probably an hour or less, while a complete abdominoplasty can take up to three hours or even more, depending on each individual case.

What Is the Recovery Time?

The typical recovery time for tummy tuck surgery can be up to five weeks. The first three weeks involve minimal movement and a lot of rest, so for those planning on getting the surgery should plan on staying in Mexico for at least two weeks, or longer when flying back home.

Drainage tubes are placed under the skin after the procedure to remove excess blood and fluids, and patients are also given a compression garment to wear in order to help keep the skin in its place. The first week is critical and so movement has to be restricted to only when it is necessary. At the end of the week, your doctor will schedule the first post-op exam and depending on each individual case, will recommend the further course of action.

What Is the Cost of a Tummy tuck in Mexico City?

The average cost of a tummy tuck in Mexico City is around $4,700 (CAN $6,500, UK £3,200, EUR €4,200, AUS $4,200), compared to around $10,100 in the United States (CAN $14,000, UK £7,000, EUR €9,000, AUS $14,000).

[Please note that these are approximate, averages prices collated at the time of writing.]
