Get a tummy tuck in Mexicali to take care of excess, sagging skin and recuperate while enjoying warm Mexican hospitality! For men and women who suffer from the embarrassment of sagging skin around the abdomen that no amount of diet and exercise will correct, a tummy tuck could be the ideal solution.
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck has become an increasingly popular procedure for individuals who desire a more contoured and toned abdomen. The goal of a tummy tuck is to flatten the abdomen with the removal of extra skin and fat. A tummy tuck can also help to tighten the abdominal wall muscles. This procedure should not be confused with liposuction, although abdominoplasty may also be performed in conjunction with liposuction to achieve optimal results.
This procedure is suitable for both women and men who are in good health. Women who have given birth and who are done having children may find this procedure is a good option to help them return to their pre-pregnancy bodies. If you are not done having children, you may wish to postpone having a tummy tuck, as pregnancy can separate the vertical muscles that are tightened in the procedure. Individuals who were once obese and who have lost significant amounts of weight may also find this procedure is a good option to remove excess or loose skin in the belly region. A tummy tuck is not advisable if you plan to lose weight in the future. Furthermore, it should also not be considered as an alternative to losing weight or for weight loss surgery.
If you are considering having a tummy tuck done, it's well worth it to research your options. Many people are now opting to travel to have this procedure done in order to take advantage of lower prices and the chance to recuperate in a relaxing environment. Mexico has long been renowned for its medical facilities and hotspots throughout the country, including just over the border are now popular destinations for travelers from the United States and Mexico.
Medical Departures is here to assist you with choosing a reputable clinic and surgeon. We only include facilities on our list once we feel completely comfortable with the research we have performed. That research includes performing legal and criminal background checks for your safety. Additionally, we confirm qualifications and professional memberships. Among the memberships we look for is the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. We understand how important comfort is to you when recovering from major surgery, so we also visit the facilities in person. Finally, we conduct real patient interviews.
During your initial consultation with your surgeon, you will discuss whether a complete abdominoplasty or a mini abdominoplasty is the right solution for your needs. In a complete tummy tuck, your abdomen will be cut from hipbone to hipbone. Muscle, tissue, and skin will then be contoured as needed. Your belly button will be moved during the procedure. Drainage tubes may be required for several days following the procedure. The surgery may take between two and four hours.
A partial or mini tummy tuck is often a good solution if you have fat deposits located under the navel. There is usually no need to move your belly button in this procedure. Depending on your situation, the surgery will usually take about two hours.
Patients should expect to return to work within four weeks following their tummy tuck. More strenuous activity can typically be resumed within four to six weeks following the procedure. It is important for patients to recognize that this procedure will result in some scarring that will typically diminish within three months to one year. It may be necessary to wear a compression garment for a minimum of four weeks following your tummy tuck procedure.
