Is a Tummy Tuck Right for You? Explore the Candidacy Factors

It is important to note that tummy tucks are not weight-loss treatments, and are not designed to replace a healthy diet or regular exercise. This plastic surgery procedure is meant to help patients who live a healthy, active lifestyle enhance their figure by removing excess skin and stubborn fat that diet and exercise haven't been able to get rid of. 

Good candidates for abdominoplasty are:

In Good Health

You should be in good overall health to safely undergo any cosmetic surgery. Complications like cardiovascular disease and poorly controlled diabetes can increase your risks during surgery and affect your body's ability to heal. 

Close to Your Goal Weight

Since this plastic surgery procedure is not meant for weight loss, good candidates should be close to their goal weight with a BMI below 30. 

Not Considering Pregnancy

Good candidates should be done having children before abdominoplasty. Pregnancy puts your body through major changes that can reverse the effects of surgery.

Committed to Healthy Living

Just like pregnancy, future weight gain can also reverse the effects of surgery. Good candidates are committed to maintaining their healthy lifestyles so they can continue to enjoy the benefits of a tummy tuck.

The Types of Tummy Tucks Our Tijuana Practice Offers

Mini Tummy Tuck model

Mini Tummy Tuck

This cosmetic procedure is best for patients with minor excess skin and fat below the belly button. It is a less invasive procedure that can be an excellent option for patients who need minimal abdominal correction.

Traditional Tummy Tuck

The traditional tummy tuck addresses the entire abdomen above and below the belly button. This cosmetic procedure stretches from hip to hip, completely transforming your midsection. Apart from removing excess skin and fat, your plastic surgeon will also reposition your belly button to make your results look more natural. 

Extended Tummy Tuck diagram

Extended Tummy Tuck

While a traditional tummy tuck's incision is along your bikini line from hip to hip, an extended tummy tuck's incision extends to the back of the hips. This form of tummy tuck addresses excess skin along your hips and your abdomen giving you more dramatic results.

A 360-Degree Transformation Circular Abdominoplasty Offers Dramatic Effects

A traditional or extended tummy tuck may not be enough to boost your confidence if excess skin and fat affect your hips and back. A belt lipectomy addresses your entire belt line to trim excess tissue from your stomach, hips, and back. This is a great option for patients who may not be a candidate for a lower body lift. Our experienced plastic surgeon can perform the belt lipectomy technique to enhance your entire midsection. Contact our Tijuana practice to learn if this 360-degree technique is the right option for you.

The Process of a Tummy Tuck What You Can Expect During Treatment

Your exact experience will vary based on the type of tummy tuck you choose. However, the first step is always to have a virtual or in-office evaluation with Dr. Castillo to determine if you are a good abdominoplasty candidate. During your consultation, he will explain the details of your procedure and expected outcomes. 

Below are the general steps most tummy tuck patients can expect throughout treatment.

With proper diet and exercise, the results of your tummy tuck can last a lifetime.

An epidural or general anesthesia will be used depending on your needs. We prioritize patient comfort throughout the entire procedure.


An incision will be made along the bikini line, from the back of one hip to the other, or around your midsection. No matter the placement, our plastic surgeon takes special care to make the incisions in areas where they can be easily hidden.

Muscle Tightening

The skin and fat are lifted to reach the abdominal muscles. Dr. Castillo will then tighten your abdominal muscles to improve contouring.

Skin and Fat Removal

Next, your excess skin and fat are removed and a new belly button is created to complement your slimmer midsection. While a tummy tuck cannot remove stretchmarks, they may become less noticeable after the procedure.


Patients traveling from outside the country will need to wait at least one week before getting on a plane. Local patients should wait three days before returning home. 

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle for Lasting Results

Following surgery, you should notice a dramatic improvement in your appearance. However, the full results will not be apparent until around six months to a year. Dr. Castillo will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help promote quick and safe healing. With proper care, diet, and exercise, the results of your tummy tuck can last a lifetime. 

"I got a tummy tuck, breast lift, and augmentation. The whole experience was professional and personal... Dr Castillo expertise on my body sculpting was exceptional. I checked out US doctors as well and Dr Castillo and his staff were by far more experienced with the latest technology than the US doctors I interviewed with. I felt totally taken care of with the whole process even so that I plan on getting more work done in the near future."  Cindy Johnston
