The Benefits of Abdominoplasty
Immediate, Noticeable Changes
A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, giving you a slimmer midsection and noticeable results. It can take several weeks for swelling and bruising to heal, but you will notice your new figure right after your surgery.
Repair Your Abdominal Wall
Abdominal muscles often separate from the abdominal wall after pregnancy, making the loose. Abdominoplasty repairs separated muscles.
Boost in Self-Confidence
Removing excess skin and stubborn fat can improve your body image and greatly increase your self-esteem.

What is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that removes loose skin and small amounts of fat in the abdominal area, making your midsection more flat and toned. If your abdominal muscles have weakened or separated, this procedure can restore them.
Removing excess skin is the primary benefit of the procedure. While some fat is removed, a liposuction treatment can remove a significant amount of fat. The plastic surgeons at our Tijuana, Mexico, facility can review your health and goals to see if you're a good candidate for combined treatments.

Steps to a Successful Recovery
Getting Plenty of Rest
Once you return home from surgery, it is important that you rest and take it easy for several days. Patients can expect to take about two weeks off from work immediately after their surgery.
Avoiding Strenuous Activity
Avoid exercise and activity that will raise your heart rate for at least six weeks after your surgery or until your plastic surgeon says it is OK.
Engage in Light Activity
While strenuous activity can increase your swelling, light activity like walking will keep your blood circulating.
Wearing Compression Garment
Patients will experience bruising and swelling following their surgery. A compression garment will help decrease the swelling.
If you combined your abdominoplasty with liposuction, you may have drains placed to remove excess fluid. Your drains have to be cleaned and emptied every day.

He was patient and really took the time to understand what I wanted. The nurses treated me like family and I felt very comfortable and safe." Jasmine
Making the Most
of Your Results
Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly will help you retain the benefits of your surgery. We recommend protecting your scar from sunlight and using skin products to minimize it. Your scar can be easily hidden with clothing, preventing anyone from seeing it.
What Else Is In a Mommy Makeover?
In addition to a tummy tuck and liposuction, a mommy makeover can include breast augmentation, arm lift, and thigh lift. Our surgeons can also perform a breast augmentation or reduction. Candidates for a mommy makeover should be done having children and finished breastfeeding. Patients should also be at or near their identical weight and be in good health.
