Tummy Tuck in Tijuana

The Ultimate Guide to Tummy Tuck in Tijuana

Fed up with a sagging stomach and wish you could afford to get it fixed? With a tummy tuck in Tijuana you can save more than 60% and get rid of your flabby tummy forever.

Old age, pregnancies and massive weight loss can all contribute to a loose, saggy tummy. The skin becomes stretched and loses elasticity and no amount of exercising or dieting will help it ping back into shape.

It’s important to remember that a tummy tuck removed excess skin – if you’ve got fat there you will need to have liposuction as well Many people opt for a combination of the two.

Why should I get a tummy tuck in Tijuana?

Tijuana’s a really convenient location for North Americans – near the border and two international airports within easy reach means it’s easily accessible. After surgery you can opt to stay in and around Tijuana and have a little holiday to recuperate – the Pacific Coast is within easy distance, or there’s plenty of great hotels with pools if you’d rather not stray too far away.

A popular destination with tourists, especially day-trippers from north of the Border, it’s little wonder Tijuana is now a favored location for medical tourists. The majority of people here speak good English, and there are lots of new as well as established facilities that cater specifically for international patients. As medical tourism grows, so do the amount of high-quality providers, eager to attract paying customers.

It is for this reason that the quality is generally high, where once it may not have been. Competition is healthy between providers, and patients have a number of options open to them. They are hardly likely to flock to facilities where standards do not meet the mark. Furthermore, many of the medical staff who look after international patients often have qualifications and professional memberships in Mexico, as well as elsewhere, such as the United States, or internationally with say, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. However, we still recommend you do your homework before making a choice – and make sure you end up at a quality provider whose credentials are available and satisfactory.

At Medical Departures we do our own background checks, including onsite visits, and legal/criminal records. We also confirm medical staff qualifications, their professional memberships and collate real patient testimonials – all of which are published on our site, along with clinic photos and virtual video tours. We offer a one-stop shop for finding a surgeon in Tijuana, comparing prices and booking online – try it, it’s easy!

What’s involved in a tummy tuck procedure and how long does it take?

The tummy tuck procedure typically takes between 1 and 3 hours which is dependent upon how much skin is removed. There are a number of different techniques for the surgery as to where the incisions will be made, but again, this may depend on your own particular circumstances, as well as your surgeon’s preference.

Effectively, incisions will be made across the abdomen, usually somewhere that can be hidden under clothes, for example bikini bottoms. The excess skin and underlying tissue will be removed, muscles tightened and the wound stitched. Liposuction may also be used to provide contouring and to remove fat.
