“What’s more, this procedure is becoming more affordable, thanks to the advent of medical tourism. For example, a tummy tuck in Mexico costs much less than it would stateside, making it a popular option for Americans. Before you head south of the border though, make sure you say “Adios!” to these misconceptions first:
It’s a weight loss procedure.
As the article noted, tummy tucks can help keep off the pounds but it is not a weight loss procedure per se. Rather, it’s a reconstructive surgery done on the abdomen when excess weight or pregnancy causes the skin to lose elasticity, thereby leading to flabby skin.”
After weight loss surgery in Mexico cosmetic center, or any other established plastic surgery center, usually include tummy tucks and arm, breast, thigh, and face lifts. There are instances, too, when surgeons recommend additional body-contouring solutions, such as liposculpture, to further tone and define one’s figure.
Of course, since you already invested a lot of time and effort in losing weight, you have to make sure that you keep the pounds off, and avoid the unhealthy lifestyle you once had. Don’t skip meals, but eat a variety of nutritious, low-calorie foods instead. Furthermore, never forget the importance of exercising regularly and keeping yourself physically active.
The desire to sculpt a well-chiseled body or face through plastic or cosmetic surgery is not coveted by women alone. Increasingly, male patients are exploring surgery options that could benefit them as well. A reputable Tijuana plastic surgery program from established medical offices like CosMed Plastic Surgery Center can offer male patients as reliable a service as any, such as face rejuvenation, cosmetic surgery for weight loss, and body chiseling for tighter and more angular chest and stomach.
Other common conditions why men undergo noninvasive cosmetic procedures or plastic surgery in Tijuana include gynecomastia (enlargement of breast tissues in men) and hair transplant. Whatever the profound need for treatment or reconstruction, change is inevitable. With success, patients can reasonably expect that, beyond their physical well-being, their psychological health should experience better days ahead, as well.
Though liposuction is not a solution for weight issues, particularly obesity, the procedure can help enhance the aesthetic aspect of the human body by eliminating fat cells. It’s also a faster way for a patient to lose unwanted body mass compared to exercising, which may take awhile to get the needed results.
Patients with gynecomastia may suffer from embarrassment and discomfort all their lives but this condition can be treated through liposuction or a combination of liposuction and excisional surgery. A clinic for liposuction in Mexico such as CosMed Plastic Surgery Center can be consulted for such procedure.
Every medical procedure inherently runs the risk of complications; even routine ones cannot be discounted. A reliable cosmetic surgeon should explain these risks, and help you weigh the pros and cons. Stay away from those who would claim their techniques are flawless.
Whether you’re having a breast surgery procedure or tummy tuck in Mexico, always tread carefully before giving yourself the green light. When you are satisfied that your doctor’s treatment and office meet high industry standards, you can feel more reassured to get the results you want as you, irrevocably, let yourself go under the knife.
CosMed Plastic Surgery Center’s very own Dr. Alejandro Quiroz, FACS, discussed cosmetic procedures that could benefit people after weight loss surgery during the 2013 ObesityHelp National Conference held on October 4 and 5, 2013 in Anaheim, California. As guest speaker, he tackled how plastic surgery can be a viable option for people who want to get rid of the excess skin which is common after weight loss procedures or post-bariatric surgeries.
To a crowd of casual spectators, medical practitioners, and other industry stakeholders, Dr. Quiroz explained the reconstructive plastic surgery options available that can address different issues hounding patients who underwent weight loss surgery. People who drastically lost weight cannot maximize the gains of shedding those pounds because of the excess skin that still covers their body. Furthermore, there are some who complain that excess skin limits their movements and affects their daily hygiene, leading to skin infections and irritation
