You may have one of two different types of tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedures: Regular Tummy Tuck and Circular Tummy Tuck.
The regular tummy tuck involves several incisions, the most significant being a long, curved incision that stretches under the lower abdomen from hip to hip like a smile, and around the navel. Your surgeon will then detach the skin from the abdominal muscles and trim any excess skin. The vertical abdominal muscles, which often have separated because of overstretching, are stitched so that they are tighter, usually resulting in a reduction of the waistline. Sometimes a small amount of liposuction is used to remove small pockets of fat. The incisions are closed using surgical stitches and, if necessary, the navel is reattached.
Here, you will be asked to stay a minimum of 3 nights in the hospital after the procedure to assure proper healing. Even after your stay at the hospital, you will be expected to remain in Mexico for an additional four to nine days after release from the hospital to manage the surgical drains.
Surgical drains will be removed 5 days after surgery for regular tummy tuck or abdominoplasty. Stitches will normally be removed in stages over a period of two weeks following surgery. Please note that unless you plan to stay in Mexico for up to two weeks, some stitch removal will need to be done after you return home.
Recovery after a Tummy Tuck Surgery is going to slow and with minimal pain. During the first days you will experience discomfort and some swelling in the area, our medical team will give you pain medication for approximately three to eight days. We recommend light walking and very gentele exercise to help with the swelling and prevent the formation of blood clots in the legs.
Patients will use compression garments for the first 6 weeks after their tummy tuck surgery and they will feel numbness in the area for up to 6 months. Exercise and lifting can be resumed in 6-8 weeks. Most people return to work three weeks post-surgery. Scarring will fade about a year post-surgery, scar sizes are based upon how much work is done. They can be a hip to hip for regular, or all the way around the body with a circular Tummy Tuck. It is recommended that patients not get pregnant after receiving a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty.
When your recovery is complete, your abdomen area will be tauter and firm, your waistline will be slimmer, and you may notice some reduction in your buttocks and thighs, particularly in the case of the circular Tummy Tuck.

Possible Complications of a Tummy Tuck Surgery
As is true of many cosmetic surgeries, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, is not a substitute for traditional weight loss, healthy eating or exercise. In fact, a patient must take special care to eat properly and exercise, as any significant weight gain effectively undoes the beneficial effects of the procedure. Patients should also therefore have completed any plans for significant weight loss and avoid any future pregnancy for the same reason.
A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty, is a major surgical procedure, and as such carries with it all the traditional risks associated with surgery, including:
- Potential reaction to the anesthetic.
- Temporary pain and swelling.
