Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy Tuck Surgery in Tijuana by Dr. Soberanes

Tummy Tuck in Tijuana

Get that Flat Abdomen and remove those stretch marks!

A tummy tuck, which is also known as abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic operation, which is targeted at improving the appearance of the human abdomen. This surgery can be done on either a man or woman but not on kids or growing children.

In the course of this tummy tuck surgery, surplus skin and fat which are extra and not needed in the stomach, are removed from the tummy. The aim is to make the stomach better in appearance, flat, firm, and attractive.

For patients taking this surgery, the exact area of attention for performing this surgery often differs, as not everyone needs to lose belly fat in the exact same spot. According to the patient’s needs, a tummy tuck  might be required if there is the presence of excess fat or skin around the expanse of your bellybutton or even towards the lower abdominal wall.

What most people love about this procedure is the ability to change a body image and especially, make clothes fit sexily!

To achieve this surgery, the connective tissues in the belly, mostly in the fascia generally, are constricted with closures; thus, the residual skin is then transposed to create a more toned look which makes the stomach look more striking.

 Which type of tummy tuck should you consider?

There are three types of tummy tuck surgeries that can be conducted on a patient.

Deciding on the type of tummy tuck surgery that is best for you can give you the best results. These three are:

  1. Reverse tummy tuck surgery
  2. Mini tummy tuck surgery
  3. Traditional tummy tuck surgery.

If you are unsure of the one which best suits you, communicating with the doctor on appointment, will assist in resolving this.

Most times, the reserve tummy tuck surgery is determined by loose skin above the belly button. For the mini tummy tuck operation, beneath the belly button where tissue and skin is all loosely hung toward the end. However, if the skin below and above your navel is all flabby, then the traditional tummy tuck surgery is needed.

How the Tummy Tuck Surgery Works?

Flat Abdomen. Remove Stretch Marks.

Excess fat in the tummy can be quite annoying, especially when you have tried using multiple types of exercise to get rid of it. Belly fat is the toughest body fats to remove that are quickly accumulated within a short period.

When exercises seem tedious, or results seem unachievable with slack skin in the abdomen then tummy tuck could be your best option. If you are wondering if this surgery is suitable for you, this is what you should know:

Who is the perfect candidate of a tummy tuck surgery in Tijuana?
  • If you have accumulated excessive stomach fat as a result of years or months of pregnancies, and you intend to lose belly fat quickly, then this surgery is perfect for you.
  • It is also suitable for men and women who were once obsessed about losing weight, and who currently have excess skin or residual fat in their abdominal wall or at the lower part of it.
  • Any man or woman who has gone through the aging process, thus having lost fat around the belly region and wants to tighten it. 
Who shouldn’t consider a tummy tuck surgery?

Due to how easy the surgery sounds, many people may believe that the operation is for everyone; however, it is not valid.

There are a number of people who are not supposed to undergo this cosmetic surgery. They include:

  • Not advisable for women who plan on getting pregnant or are still having kids. It is highly recommended that this surgery should be done after a woman has stopped giving birth. The reason for this is because the tummy tuck surgery tightens the vertical belly muscles, and these muscles are normally stretched when pregnant.

However, if you happen to be the perfect candidate for this beauty surgery, then the Da Vinci Plastic Surgery Clinic is the ideal place to get it done.

Tummy Tuck Surgery Procedure in Tijuana Mexico

It is best to have an understanding of this surgery, so you can better judge if it is the best for you. Below is all you should know:

Pre-surgery consultation, including a physical examination is done to assess a patient’s general medical condition.

At start of the tummy tuck surgery, the patient receiving the surgery is put under general anesthesia.

Depending on the doctor’s decision, the opening could be made either around the belly button (navel), or either at the hip bone, or at the side of the hip, which is at the side of the body. The point is, the opening could be at the spot the doctor notices excess fat or where the patient feels it is best for them.

There will then be a separation of the abdominal muscles. These muscles are put back together and then stitched together. Thus, creating a narrow or thinner waist and toned abdomen.

There will then be removal of unwanted excess skin and neatly tightened muscles.

Depending on where the opening took place, the openings are then placed back in their normal position. And a sterile dressing is situated in the stitched area for proper healing.

In total, this surgery could take up to an estimated 2 to 3 hours.

What is expected of the patients before the surgery?

As a patient who will be undergoing tummy tuck surgery, there are certain things expected of you to be done before the surgery.

  •     Booking an appointment with the doctor: it’s recommended that you should schedule an appointment with the doctor. This helps you communicate better with the doctor and to determine the right surgery for you. During this appointment, you are expected to discuss your expectations with your doctor; this helps to promote what your results should be.
  •     Medical history: on visiting the doctor, your medical history should not be restricted or withheld from the doctor. Past medical issues or conditions should be communicated to the doctor also. This helps him to know of any diseases or allergic reactions, which will be a hindrance to a successful surgery.
  •     Conducting a physical examination:most information will be given out during the appointment period with the doctor. A scan of the abdomen is done, and a perhaps your abdomen pictures will be taken for record and tracking purposes.
  •     Stable weight:maintaining a durable weight is most times recommended by the doctor during a stipulated period. If you are a patient with excess fat or obese, you are in most cases advised to lose some pounds before the tummy tuck surgery.
  •     Quit smoking: a patient who smokes is advised to quit smoking as that can affect the surgery and health in general.
  •     Giving medication to prevent complications:most times, before the tummy tuck, you may be given a prescription which serves as an anticoagulant to help prevent blood clotting.  
After the surgery 

After the first day of the operation, there may be specific pains, which can be subdued by pain medication. The part of the abdomen which underwent the incision process will be dressed up for proper healing.

The patient is then moved from the surgical room to the resting ward by the medical staff. They will also assist in the prevention of blood clotting. Blood-Thinning medication may be prescribed for the patient also. Added to this, complete bathing is not recommended as the abdomen is wrapped up; instead, the other parts of the body will only be cleaned periodically with a damp cloth or sponge.

For about six to seven weeks, you are expected to wear a supportive abdominal garment, mostly known as an abdominal binder after the tummy tuck surgery. The doctor will also explain how to care for the scars for faster healing.

As a patient who has undergone a tummy tuck surgery, your sitting position will be very different from the usual. Recommended sitting or lying positions will be given to you to prevent the reopening of the wound or to prevent additional bleeding.

Final results

The final result will be noticeable after two to three months, though it also depends on the patient. Also, a lasting effect can be achieved if the patient also maintains a stable weight.

What our
patients say

Dr. Soberanes is truly an exceptional plastic surgeon.  I visited his clinic and arrived with a mindset of getting the largest breast implants possible, but it was the Dr. himself who proved to me that I could not only look better but feel better to where I could continue my exercise routine without feeling any discomfort.  I can't stop looking into the mirror and trying every possible new dress and I can get my hands on.  Love love love the way my breast implants look and feel!

Anastasia Stone

I love the way my body looks after the surgery, but the positive feedback I have received from friends and family have also motivated me and transformed me into a new me.  All I can really say is thank you Dr. Soberanes for understanding me and for your patience.  You are a kind and amazingly skillful plastic surgeon for sure.

Patty M

For a doctor who provides affordable mommy makeover plastic surgery, he is truly masterful!  I spent over 4 months getting quotes, researching the doctors and I knew that Dr. Soberanes was my surgeon when I met him at this beautiful clinic in Tijuana.  He treats you with the utmost care and attention and truly understands our needs as mothers and how giving birth can affect our emotional and confidence.

Martha A

I have been wanting to get a mommy makeover plastic surgery for the longest time that I can remember.  And it was until I saw a facebook post where patients spoke very highly of the dr that I decided to finally transform my body once and for all.  The initial contact was easy, and Dr Sergio explained the procedure to me very carefully and patiently while I was extremely nervous.  The doctor's calm demeanor sets you at ease and once you get to know him and his other patients you know that you are int he right hands.
