The fame of tummy tuck surgery is increasing, as it has become the “solution” for many people who seek to improve their abdominal muscles’ physical appearance. The abdomen plays a very important role in the physical aspect because through this it can be seen if a person is healthy or has overweight problems.

A more aesthetic abdomen not only helps people achieve a healthier appearance but also increases the attractiveness of their figure. However, there are times that no matter how much exercise is done, it is not always easy to achieve a shaped abdomen, and that is why for many people it is better to have cosmetic surgery procedure.

What is a tummy tuck?

It can be said that the tummy tuck is an aesthetic procedure in which the plastic surgeon focuses on the abdomen. Through this procedure, the excess skin that the patient has, as well as the excess fat from the middle and lower abdomen, can be removed.

At the same time, the surgeon rearranges and strengthens all the muscles that have moved within the abdominal wall. After surgery, the patient should only follow the doctor’s instructions to be able to recover quickly, and depending on the person, changes may be seen in a very short time. 

The use of this procedure is more for aesthetic reasons than any other, however, it is also often used to ease rashes or skin infections. These conditions usually occur in people who have lost large amounts of fat in a very short time, so they have excess skin.

Who is a candidate?

Although a tummy tuck is one of the most requested procedures like breast surgery Tijuana, not all people are candidates. That is why it is necessary to perform several studies and speak with a specialist before thinking about having this type of surgery.

It is recommended that if the patient is consuming medications that may affect the procedure, they must be discontinued a few days before. It is also possible that the surgeon recommends certain medications to the patient to make their recovery easier. Fasting should also be done before any procedure. 

The patient must avoid tobacco, he must be hydrated and maintain a healthy weight. This surgery is not recommended for people who suffer from hernias or any other type of problem that could put their health at risk; that is why it is necessary to clarify any doubts that the patient may have with the plastic surgeon.
