Refine Your Figure with Tummy Tuck Surgery

Feeling confident in your figure can significantly improve your quality of life. Tijuana Bariatrics understands how impactful this effect can be, and provides safe, affordable plastic surgery at just a fraction of the cost of treatment in the U.S. Qualified medical professionals working with the practice can perform tummy tuck surgery at a Tijuana, Mexico, hospital to remove loose abdominal skin after massive weight loss. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is not a weight loss procedure, but tightens excess tissue for a more youthful, slimmer appearance. 

Tijuana Bariatrics understands how impactful improved confidence can be, and provides safe, affordable tummy tuck surgery at just a fraction of the cost of treatment in the U.S.

What to Expect During Tummy Tuck Surgery Illustration showing tummy tuck incision patterns

There are two types of tummy tuck: traditional and mini. Both are typically performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon has several options for incision patterns, and any scarring will be placed so it can be hidden by underwear or a bikini bottom. During the procedure, the doctor will remove excess skin, reposition and tighten damaged muscles, and in some cases, place the navel in a more natural- and youthful-looking position. Incisions will be closed with sutures, and you may have drains placed to remove excess fluids during your recovery.

Recovery and Results

After a tummy tuck, you can expect to return to work in three to six weeks. For the first few weeks of the recovery period, you will need to wear a compression garment on your abdomen. Do not shower for the first few days following surgery, and avoid baths or hot tubs, until cleared by the doctor. You will need to mostly rest, but be sure to take walks around your home to deter the formation of blood clots. Do not lift heavy items, children, or pets during your recovery. Take medications as directed by the physician, and closely follow all post-operative instructions. You will  have some slight scarring, but this will fade with time. Though natural aging will occur, if you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen, your tummy tuck results could last for decades.
