Tummy Tuck In Tijuana, Mexico
Tummy Tuck in Tijuana (Abdominoplasty)
Both men and women are prone to gaining abdominal fat. Weight gain, pregnancy, and age can all cause the stomach to protrude. Pregnancy can also cause abdominal muscular weakness. Sometimes no amount of diet or exercise will result in a flat stomach.
The tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes extra skin and fat while tightening the muscles beneath.
However, the tummy tuck is not a weight-loss treatment. Liposuction is occasionally performed concurrently with the tummy tuck to remove excess weight. The tummy tuck also does not correct stretch mark scarring.

Types of Tummy Tuck
Full tummy tuck
A full or complete tummy tuck eliminates extra stretched, loose skin from the abdominal region below the ribs to the pubic bone. This generally entails relocating the belly button.
Extended tummy tuck
This procedure is frequently performed as part of a circumferential body lift. It eliminates extra skin and tissue all the way around the stomach. The navel is also frequently moved or reconstructed. Circumferential body lifts are popular among persons who have lost a significant amount of weight, particularly following gastric bypass surgery.
Mini tummy tuck
A mini tummy tuck is ideal for a small number of patients who have a pretty solid upper abdomen and desire to tighten loose skin below the belly button. When compared to a full tummy tuck, this alternative has a shorter incision and a quicker recovery period. This procedure has no effect on the belly button.
