Tighten and Tone Your Midsection

If you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, but cannot achieve a flat abdomen or get rid of that excess skin in your midsection, you may be a good candidate for a tummy tuck by Tijuana aesthetic surgeon Dr. Rodolfo Castillo.

Dr. Castillo can remove extra skin from your abdomen, and repair abdominal muscles that have been weakened or separated because of pregnancies or gaining weight. After a tummy tuck, you can enjoy a firmer, smoother abdomen that makes you look younger and more accurately reflects your healthy lifestyle. Contact us today to learn more.

Is It Right for Me?

A tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure, and it is not designed to replace a healthy diet or regular exercise. However, if you live a healthy, active lifestyle and have a body mass index (BMI) below 30, but still have excess tissue and fat around your stomach, a tummy tuck may be an excellent option. If you have recently lost a large amount of weight, or if you have been pregnant, your abdominal muscles may have become weakened or separated, and your skin may have been stretched. A tummy tuck can correct these problems, which even the most rigorous diet and exercise routine cannot repair. A tummy tuck is often included as part of a more comprehensive treatment plan, such as a mommy makeover or body contouring after massive weight loss.

You may be a candidate for a tummy tuck if:

  • You are in good health
  • You are at a reasonable weight (BMI below 30)
  • You are not considering pregnancy
  • You do not smoke
  • You have realistic expectations

Understanding the Procedure

In order to determine if you are a good candidate for abdominoplasty, it is necessary to undergo a virtual or in-office evaluation with Dr. Castillo. During an evaluation, he will explain the details of your procedure, your expected outcome, obtain your medical history, and take measurement. Dr. Castillo will perform your tummy tuck in a hospital, working with registered anesthesiologists, who will administer epidural or general anesthesia, depending the patient's individual characteristics. 
The abdominoplasty procedure consists of a horizontal incision over the pubic bone that goes up to the hipbones, maintaining the incision at a level where the final scar can be covered with underwear. Skin and fat in the abdomen is lifted in order to reach the abdominal muscles, and the muscles are tightened to improve contouring. Next, the excess of skin and fat is removed and a new bellybutton is made. It is important to note that a tummy tuck cannot remove stretch marks. However, these marks may be less noticeable with the removal of excess skin.

Recovery and Results

Following a tummy tuck, you will typically spend one night in the hospital. You should have great caution during the first days after your surgery and avoid strenuous physical activity for at least six weeks. Following your procedure, Dr. Castillo will advise you in the best ways to sit and lie down, and he will provide more detailed instructions regarding your return to work and resuming your exercise routine.

After your procedure, there will be significant improvement in your appearance, but the full results of your abdominoplasty will not be completely apparent for six months to a year. The results of a tummy tuck are long-lasting, however, and once you see the sleek, toned look of your abdomen, you will know that the results were worth the wait.
