Abdominoplasty

An abdominoplasty in Mexico is appropriate for both men and women who are unsatisfied with their appearance. This surgical technique, often called a tummy tuck, is an excellent choice for new mothers who wish to get rid of their sagging stomach after pregnancy. It is also ideal for addressing stubborn fat and excess skin after weight-loss surgery.

Dr. Echeagaray’s major goal during the abdominoplasty treatment is to remove extra skin from the abdomen. The technique also includes removing excess fat and tightening the loose and worn-out abdominal muscles. Following abdominoplasty, patients have a smoother and flatter abdomen.

Why Undergo Abdominoplasty?

Weak abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) and drooping abdominal skin are issues that most women experience after giving birth. The tone and form of the stomach change throughout the postpartum period.

Additionally, after losing a significant amount of weight through diet, exercise, or bariatric surgery, excess fat and sagging skin are left on the abdomen. Sagging skin can cause excess moisture, which can lead to fungal infections.

Abdominoplasty surgery is performed to contour the abdomen, resolving these issues and creating a fitter and more sculpted appearance.

Who Are the Ideal Candidates for Abdominoplasty?

Non-smokers who are physically fit and at their ideal body weight are suitable candidates for abdominoplasty. You can get an abdominoplasty if you are unhappy with the appearance of your abdomen and have reasonable expectations in terms of results.

What Happens During an Abdominoplasty Consultation?

Before undergoing the operation, you will need to consult with Dr. Echeagaray to determine the type of abdominoplasty that will be performed. It is crucial to visit with Dr. Echeagaray in order to communicate your aesthetic goals. The doctor will perform a physical examination, ask you about your medical history, and tell you about the details of the surgery.

Procedure
The excess skin and fat are removed surgically from the abdominal area by Dr. Echeagaray. Depending on the patient´s needs, the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened. The incision is a half moon shape (the length depends on the mass of skin and fat to be removed), and is usually made directly under the overhanging skin.

Duration
Abdominoplasty surgery takes approximately two hours. The exact time required to perform each patient’s surgery will depend on the specifics of their case, including the amount of tissue to be removed.

Anesthesia
The procedure is most commonly performed with a regional nerve block using a local anesthetic. This procedure can also be performed under general anesthesia.

Inpatient/Outpatient

A tummy tuck can be either an inpatient or an outpatient procedure depending on the patient’s health.
