Have you lost a lot of weight to the point of having the skin on your abdomen wildly hanging down?
Has your pregnancy produced any unwanted results in your abdomen?
Are you tired of those heavy stretch marks on your stomach?
Unhappy to wear a swimsuit or look at yourself in the mirror?
Don’t worry, many women are like you because they want a flat stomach, a stomach without disappointment.
You will be happy to know that abdominal lipectomy or tummy tuck is a fantastic cosmetic surgery to put an end to your appearance worries and help you have an abdomen the way you want it to be.
Good news! An affordable, safe, and recognized solution costs around 75% of the price by going to Cartagena in Colombia. In addition, a Canadian companion travels to Colombia to make sure everything runs smoothly and at no additional cost.
Tummy tuck or abdominal lipectomy is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and strengthens the abdominal wall muscles.
At the same time, stretch marks, cellulite, and skin imperfections can be reduced in order to obtain a more harmonious end result. For the majority of women, this surgery is performed purely for cosmetic purposes.
This cosmetic surgery operation reduces the bulging appearance of the abdomen. Still, it should be kept in mind that it leaves a scar which, depending on the surgery to correct it, will remain for a longer or shorter time.
Although abdominoplasty is primarily permanent, you need to maintain your weight after surgery.
Unlike weight loss surgery, an abdominoplasty will not prevent you from gaining weight.
For most patients, this means making a serious commitment to a healthy diet and exercise.
Gaining weight can put you back to square one and thus undo all the work that has been done without forgetting the money you have invested in this cosmetic surgery.
In patients who need to lose a lot of weight, it is recommended to postpone the surgery. If you are a woman considering future pregnancies, it is strongly recommended that the surgery be suspended until you have finished having children.
The best candidates for a tummy tuck are women near their ideal weight, in good health and have realistic expectations of what can be achieved with the surgery.
They have a buildup of fat or excess skin on the abdomen that does not improve with diet or exercise.
This surgery is often performed on women who have had multiple pregnancies, which has produced sagging skin and abdominal muscles.
Surgery can be performed on patients over the age of 18. There is no age limit for a tummy tuck, although all patients should have a preoperative check-up to ensure they are fit for the surgery.
Examples of ideal candidates for a tummy tuck are:
