One of the most trending reasons why people are coming to Cancun, Mexico for medical tours is Tummy Tucks. 

What it is

The tummy tuck, or more formally known as abdominoplasty, is a remarkable procedure used in order to tone your abdomen area or lose excessive fat. The procedure is used for both men and women, and mostly to treat excess skin and fats around the belly.

Women who have undergone pregnancy or dramatic weight lose get baggy skin and thus opt towards tummy tucks. Yet, the procedure can be customized to the unique needs of a patient. Here are the three types of abdominoplasty you can get in Cancun. 

Mini Abdominoplasty

Often, the navel area is the part of our abdomen that is most affected by baggy skin. Thus, mini tummy tucks are used to treat the navel by removing excess fat and skin. Patients can expect to improve their contours and improve laxity or bulge in the navel area. The procedure is done by stretching the skin muscles in the navel.

Traditional Abdominoplasty

Due to rapid weight loss, or pregnancy, the abdominal muscles may lose their shape and curves. In this situation, a more traditional type of tummy tuck is performed to repair the abdominal muscles along with removing the excess skin and fats from the entire belly. In many cases, a traditional tummy tuck is combined with liposuction to get more efficient results. 

Extended Abdominoplasty

The extended version of Abdominoplasty is used only on the patients who have gone through very significant weight loss. Such weight loss may be in reaction to bariatric surgery. The results of this surgery are very rapid and dramatic improvements in the body contour can be seen. In the extended version of tummy tucks, excess skin and fat are not only removed from the abdomen and navel, but also from the hips, thighs, and back.
