Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) in Mexico

The abdomen is one of the regions of the body that suffers the most from weight changes, aging, physical inactivity and for women in particular due to the changes caused by pregnancy.

Many patients are unable to receive their desired outcome merely from diet and exercise alone because excess skin can only be corrected through surgery.

Tummy tuck surgery in Mexico, also known as Abdominoplasty Mexico, aims at tightening the underlying muscles and removing excess skin from the abdomen. Abdominoplasty is not only geared toward women, but is also increasingly helping enhance the waistlines of men.
