Conveniently located to serve Mexico
An abdominoplasty in Mexico is appropriate for both men and women who are unsatisfied with their appearance. This 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. Jorge Echeagaray Herrera’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. Women who have completed their pregnancies and do not plan to have more children are also often good candidates, as well as those hoping to address loose skin after bariatric surgery or significant weight loss, enjoying a more contoured appearance.

What Happens During an Abdominoplasty Consultation?
To help you decide between liposuction vs tummy tuck, you will need to consult with Dr. Echeagaray. It is crucial to do a consultation 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.
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.
How Long Will it Take?
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.
The procedure is most commonly performed with a regional nerve block using a local anesthetic. This procedure can also be performed under general anesthesia.
A tummy tuck can be either an inpatient or an outpatient procedure depending on the patient’s health.

Infection, bleeding under the skin flaps or at the incision site, pulmonary embolism (a blood clot that travels to the lung), scarring (keloids), delayed healing, or the need for a second reversionary operation are the potential risks.
Pain and discomfort are common after abdominoplasty. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication to manage this, as well as provide instructions for proper wound care. Monitor for signs of infection, such as increased redness, swelling, warmth, or drainage from the incisions. Additionally, keep your head elevated when resting to reduce swelling, and you may use cold compresses to alleviate swelling and discomfort.
After a tummy tuck procedure. the patient may return to work within two to four weeks. Upon a re-evaluation by the physician, the patient – may return to more strenuous activity after approximately four to six weeks. Scars should fade and flatten anywhere from three months to one year after surgery.
