I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

I had a great experience with my Dr Israel VillaLobos and His staff Elsa and Dr Abraham were very good to me! My surgery was successful! I got lipo with tummy tuck and I'm so glad I chose Dr Israel!

Hospital de la Familia

Carlo was amazing! He made sure I knew exactly what to expect every step of the way. There was always someone at the hospital who spoke English, and everyone there made my stay comfortable. Carlo even checked up on me once I was home through my recover several times. I will admit I was scared at first about leaving the US to have the surgery but I’m so glad I did it!

Dr. Munoz Meza is amazing in every way. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and confident with my decision to have plastic surgery. He listened to what I wanted and delivered. I was up and walking around Rosarito on postop day 4 of my mommy makeover. He has the best bed side manner and is truly an artist. THANK YOU FOR MY DREAM BODY!!!

Maurice Aceves Plastic & Aesthetic Surgeon

When Dr. Aceves Website says "• Board certification • Experience • Aesthetics • An emotional connection" all are correct. I am thrilled with my mini lift. I came from Rosarito because I trust him with my face and life. He is tactful and honest. I drove back two days after my surgery. Beautiful and fast healing and my friends agree he is an artist. You can find an excellent surgeon and emotional connection in one Dr. I will only let my friends go to him because I trust and appreciate his skill and character and I know they are in good hands. No worries.

FAQ about Tummy tuck in Mexico

What is a tummy tuck?

Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is an operation for the abdominal saggy skin removal, stomach defects elimination, and proportions restoration. With the help of tummy tuck, you get rid of the hanging belly fat that appears after a sharp weight loss or childbirth. Quite often, abdominoplasty is combined with liposuction to remove excess fat and saggy stomach skin.

Duration

2-5 hours

Anesthesia

general

In-hospital stay

3 days

Rehab

6 months

What result can you expect after the procedure?

Tummy tuck helps to cope with:

  • skin stretching and loss of its elasticity after the significant fetus birth or multiple pregnancies
  • sagging skin caused by significant weight loss
  • excess subcutaneous fat layer (the deepest skin layer which cannot be otherwise disposed of)
  • stomach apron.

Abdominoplasty is not a way to get rid of obesity. This operation may be associated with liposuction. In this case, tummy tuck helps to lose excess weight, but not itself.

Who is the right candidate for a tummy tuck?

The main reason for a complete abdominoplasty is the individual desire of the person. Such a primary method is prescribed when nothing helps to correct the abdominal area, and there is no way to go in for sports intensively and regularly.

Abdominoplasty is performed when the lower abdomen is saggy. This occurs after liposuction, childbirth, sudden weight loss with a huge initial weight.

The list of indications for this operation includes:

  • the presence of excess adipose tissue on the anterior abdominal wall and on the body sides (if it cannot be removed by diet and sports)
  • a large number of stretch marks on the abdomen
  • a protruding belly and large waist
  • pregnancy
  • the hereditary weakness of the connective tissue.

How does a patient prepare for a tummy tuck?

There are several steps of the patient's preoperative period:

  • consultation with a plastic surgeon to determine possible contraindications and identify patient's psychological condition
  • examination of the anterior abdominal wall to determine skin turgor, muscle tone and the thickness of the subcutaneous fat layer
  • 3D modeling to predict the outcome of the operation
  • lab tests and screenings (ECG, blood and urine analysis)
  • 2-3 weeks before surgery, a patient stops taking anticoagulants and starts taking vasoconstrictor drugs
  • having received the test results, the patient consults with the anesthetist
  • the doctor can prescribe a special diet
  • during the month before surgery, the patient refrains from alcohol and smoking
  • a week before abdominoplasty, it is worth restricting the use of products that promote the gas formation and fatty, sweet, spicy foods
  • for a couple of days, the patient should reduce physical activity, stop using decorative care cosmetics
  • intake lung sedatives
  • arrival at the clinic on an empty stomach
  • marking on the patient’s body
  • anesthesia introducing.

How is a tummy tuck performed?

On average, abdominoplasty takes about 2-5 hours. The patient is under general anesthesia. Depending on the operated area and the body fat volume, plastic experts choose the most effective type of tummy tuck.

During the complete tummy tuck, not only the abdomen changes but also the area of the back, sides, and buttocks. Plastic surgeons carry out the full abdominoplasty in several steps:

  • the surgeon marks the incisions and areas that are to be removed on the abdomen, sides, and back
  • the specialist administers the anesthesia
  • the doctor cuts the excess skin, and subcutaneous tissue exfoliates the tissues and carefully reduces the navel
  • the plastic surgeon sutures the muscles with non-absorbable threads to completely restore the standard abdominal wall, back, and sides
  • after the excess skin removal, the incisions are sutured, imposing self-absorbable sutures. The surgeon washes wounds and installs drainages.

How long is rehabilitation after a tummy tuck?

Plastic surgeons apply early recovery techniques to shorten the rehabilitation period. In general, it takes about six months, but only the first 1.5 months are the most difficult.

  1. On the first day, the patient is in the ward. To restore bowel function, the patient has light meals.
  2. On the second day, the patient gets out of bed.
  3. On the third day, the surgeon examines the patients, gives recommendations, and discharges the patient.
  4. The patient wears compression underwear, keeps a diet, and limits physical activity. Also, the patient will have to minimize water procedures and independently treat the suture with antiseptics.

What types of abdominoplasty are performed?

There are 2 main types of tummy tuck performed:

  • Mini abdominoplasty — a removal of sagging skin and stretch marks in the lower area of your belly button. This is a procedure for those who do not need to correct the whole stomach zone.
  • Full abdominoplasty — the most common procedure to remove the sagging skin and fat from the lower or the middle area of the abdomen. During the process, a doctor can replace the belly button and tighten muscles to achieve the perfect result.

Only a doctor can determine what type of tummy tuck is the best for you. Please take photos of your belly and send them when you submit a request to get more extensive consultation and accurate prices.

How long will I need to stay in other country after a tummy tuck?

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is considered a quite complicated procedure, so a patient needs to stay in the clinic for few hours or 1-3 days according to the surgery method. Then, a patient stays in the hotel for 2-4 days to visit a doctor and control the recovery process.

It takes up to 10 nights overall to stay in a particular to process tummy tuck.
