If you have exhausted natural means of weight loss such as diet and exercise only to find that you cannot achieve a flatter midsection, you may be an ideal candidate for tummy tuck surgery. If you are in the Baja California area, a qualified plastic surgeon can help you reach your desired body contour with this procedure.

What is tummy tuck surgery?

Medically termed “abdominoplasty,” tummy tuck surgery can reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. Your tummy tuck specialist will thoroughly examine the area to be treated in order to determine which technique will be most beneficial. Based on the amount of protrusion and excess, sagging skin, a tradition, mini, extended, or circumferential abdominoplasty will be chosen.

Typically, a long incision in the lower abdomen is made from hipbone to hipbone in order to separate the skin from the underlying muscle. Your Baja California plastic surgeon will then tighten the abdominal muscle, pull the skin down, make a new opening for the belly button, and trim away excess skin. This produces a more slender and better contoured shape.

After your procedure, be sure to follow all instructions provided by your physician in order to ensure a healthy and complication-free recovery. Scarring may be hidden by most underwear and bathing suit bottoms. These should fade over time, though not completely.

If you would like to achieve an overall enhancement, you may wish to inquire about liposuction and breast augmentation.

Cost of Tummy Tuck Surgery

The national average cost of abdominoplasty surgery is $5,381. This does not include surgery center fee, anesthesia fee, or any pre- and/or post-surgery medication. Please consult with your Baja California tummy tuck surgeon for a more accurate final cost.
