At Angeles Hospital Tijuana, you may have one of two different types of tummy tuck or abdominoplasty procedures: Regular Tummy Tuck and Circular Tummy Tuck.

Our Circular Tummy Tuck, is also often referred to as a lower body lift. This procedure involves an incision around the entire torso, extending under the abdomen in the same manner as a regular Tummy Tuck, and around the hipline across the top of the buttocks and flank area. Skin is then pulled up, cut, sculpted, and reattached on both the abdomen and in the flank and buttock areas. A small amount of liposuction is employed to remove small amounts of fat to achieve proper contouring.

These procedures may take anywhere from 1.5 to 5 hours depending on the complexity and circumstances of the procedure. Surgical drains are often utilized to facilitate healing, and the procedure is usually done under local and IV anesthesia. You will be asked to fast for 12 hours prior to surgery, and it is usually recommended that patients stop smoking for at least two weeks prior to surgery.

Patients will stay 1 night at our facilities, once back home patients will need the support of their primary physician to manage the surgical drains.

Surgical drains will be removed 10 days after surgery for . 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.

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 Circular Tummy Tuck Surgery

As is true of many cosmetic surgeries, a circular tummy tuck, 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 circular tummy tuck, is a major surgical procedure, and as such carries with it all the traditional risks associated with surgery, including:
