Tummy Tuck modelWith a tummy tuck in Mexico, you can go from flab to fab in a matter of days. This procedure instantly corrects abdominal sagging, giving you the contoured physique you deserve.

A tummy tuck is a corrective cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat and tightens the skin in the abdominal region. Also called abdominoplasty, this procedure also addresses sagging abdominal muscles for a tight and toned appearance.

Is a Tummy Tuck Right for Me?

A tummy tuck is often one of the most critical elements in a body-contouring treatment plan. It is an ideal option for patients who have lost a large amount of weight and are left with sagging abdominal skin. Additionally, many new mothers find abdominoplasty surgery to be an effective way to eliminate post-delivery sagging and get back in shape.

Good candidates for a tummy tuck are non-smokers and are in good overall health. Ideal candidates have realistic expectations and a positive outlook.

The Procedure

Abdominoplasty surgery can take around two to three hours or more depending on the level of correction being performed. To begin, the patient is given anesthesia. This ensures that they do not feel any pain or discomfort during the surgery.

An incision will then be made. The incision’s position, alignment, and size will be decided by Dr. Nashielli before the surgery. This decision is made based on the degree of correction that the patient requires.

Typically, a curved horizontal incision is made from hipbone to hipbone. It can easily be hidden by a swimsuit. An incision may also be made around the bellybutton for greater access.

Once the chosen incisions have been made, excess fat is removed. Sagging abdominal muscles are rejoined and tightened using internal suture techniques. Excess skin is trimmed away, and the remaining skin is tightened. Incisions are then stitched closed.

After the Tummy Tuck

After the surgery, the incision area is bandaged, and the patient is given painkillers to efficiently manage pain.

During the recovery phase, it will be important to follow Dr. Nashielli’s post-operative care instructions as closely as possible. This will help to avoid post-surgical complications and a prolonged healing process.

Patients must stay home from work for a time to rest and heal. Mild exercises like walking are recommended, but heavy exercise and other strenuous activities must be avoided for several weeks.

It will be necessary to wear an elastic garment to reduce swelling and bruising. Painkillers and antibiotics will be prescribed and must be taken as directed. Once all healing is complete, patients can enjoy their full results.

The Cost of a Tummy Tuck

Many aspects of a tummy tuck procedure can affect its overall cost. The price of abdominoplasty surgery is determined based on factors like the total surgical time, the amount of tissue being removed, and the techniques utilized.
