What Is a Tummy Tuck?

/

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery option that can effectively improve the appearance of your midsection after pregnancy, weight loss, or age-related changes. A surgeon can remove loose skin and tighten the muscles of your abdominal wall to help you achieve a slimmer, toned look.

Anesthesia

Tummy tuck surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed during your procedure.

Incisions

Your surgeon will strategically make incisions in the lower abdominal area for minimal scarring and easy concealment.

Muscle Tightening

Your surgeon will access the abdominal muscles through the abdominal wall and tighten them for a flatter stomach and slimmer waistline.

Skin Contouring

Your surgeon will remove excess skin and tighten it over the abdominal muscles. In some cases, they may reposition the navel for a more natural, youthful look.

Closing the Incisions

The incisions will be closed with sutures, and you may have drains placed to remove excess fluids during your recovery. 

Recovering From Tummy Tuck Surgery

Your plastic surgeon will provide detailed postoperative instructions after your surgery in Tijuana, Mexico. Throughout your recovery, you can expect:

First Week

At the start of your recovery, it is important to wear a compression garment around your abdomen to help support the area and prevent fluid buildup. Avoid showers or baths for the first few days, and take medication as directed by the doctor. Focus on resting, but be sure to take short, regular walks around your home to help prevent the formation of blood clots.

Second Week

Though it's common to feel more tired than usual throughout your recovery period, you will likely start to feel much better during the second week. Continue to wear your compression garment and gradually resume light day-to-day activities. Manage discomfort with over-the-counter medication or as instructed by the doctor.

Three to Six Weeks

Many patients are able to return to work around a month after treatment. You can resume gentle exercise, but continue to avoid strenuous activity, including lifting heavy objects. You will notice your scarring begin to heal and fade.

Beyond

Your scarring will continue to lighten, becoming much less noticeable. Though natural changes to the body do occur as a result of aging, your tummy tuck results can last for decades with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
