Pregnancy, aging, and weight loss are all factors that can lead to the abdominal region enlarging out of proportion to body size. If you have tried to achieve a toned stomach with dieting and regular exercise but have not noticed significant improvement, then you may be an excellent candidate for the tummy tuck procedure. Dr. Daniel Camacho-Melois a talented and experienced plastic surgeon whose commitment to his craft and dedication to his patients help ensure beautiful, natural-looking results for patients who undergo tummy tuck surgery.
We invite you to learn more about the procedure and the likely outcome you can expect. Tummy tuck surgery performed at our Tijuana practice — serving Rosarito, San Diego, and nearby areas — has helped many patients achieve the sleek, toned abdomen they have long desired. Our practice also offers the mini tummy tuck procedure for patients who need only mild abdominal contouring.
The Tummy Tuck Procedure
Tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that is performed to remove unwanted fat and bulges from the stomach region. Through an incision hidden in the bikini area, Dr. Camacho-Melo removes excess fat and tissue and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. By tightening sagging stomach muscles, Dr. Camacho-Melo is able to create a dramatically toned appearance and enhance the quality and long-lasting nature of the results. Excess skin will be trimmed away and remaining skin will be pulled taut to achieve smooth, flat abdominal contours. Tummy tuck procedures at our Tijuana practice are often combined with liposuction of the hips and/or thighs to slim the entire midsection.
Our patients who undergo abdominoplasty are typically very happy with the results of their procedure and the new look of their abdomen. It is not uncommon for patients to lose several dress or pant sizes after the tummy tuck procedure. Many of our patients from Tijuana, Rosarito, and San Diego live within a short drive of the beach and are able to participate in outdoor activities with newfound confidence and enjoyment. A bathing suit will conceal any scarring from the procedure, but it will not hide your trimmer, firmer abdomen.
The mini tummy tuck procedure is an excellent option for a patient who desires a smoother, flatter midsection, but whose abdomen does not protrude enough to warrant a full abdominoplasty. During a mini tummy tuck, Dr. Daniel Camacho-Melo will tighten stomach muscles, remove excess fat, and trim away excess skin. The procedure is similar to a regular tummy tuck, although it is performed on a smaller scale. A major advantage of the mini tummy tuck procedure is that it can be performed without leaving any visible scars. We invite you to schedule a tummy tuck consultation at our cosmetic surgery practice in Tijuana to determine which type of procedure is more appropriate for your needs.
