Service Description

Factors such as pregnancy, genetics, or weight changes over time make the abdominal muscles lose their tone with subsequent elongation of the skin, leaving stretch marks, protruded abdominal walls and accumulation of fat in the abdominal region.

Abdominoplasty, also called lipectomy or Tummy Tuck, is a surgery that involves tying the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin to regain a toned abdomen.

Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck is accompanied by Liposculpture that helps shape the region by removing excess fat in the abdominal area; this is also called lipoabdominoplasty

Dr Lina Triana's words:
In the Organization Dr. Lina Triana we have the highest quality standards and, being our mission a general patient’s well-being, we do not only want our patients to get a surgery but also to experience a life change; we want our patients to change bad habits developed over time, counseling them individually as how to improve skin care and nutrition and recommending serum therapy and/or detoxification treatments to achieve complete wellness. It is very important that our patients understand the ideology behind our procedures; we do it all for health and well-being based on a holistic approach. The benefits will be evident as our ideal is not to create human molds, but happy patients.

¿Are you a candidate for this procedure?
The ideal person to have a Tummy Tuck surgery is that who has an excess of skin, lost of abdominal muscles tone and stretch marks. It can be done in males and females.

¿reccomendations before having your tummy tuck done? 
For those who had a bariatric surgery or lost massive amounts of weight it is advisable not to have the surgery done until they reach their ideal weight and maintain it for about a year.

¿how do i do a tummy tuck? 
This surgery last about 3 hours and usually it is done in combination with a liposculpture. It can be done under epidural plus sedation, general anesthesia or a combination of both. Before the surgery I mark the areas where I will work on. The incision will be from hip to hip low on the abdomen so that it can be hidden with underwear. Not only fat and skin will be removed during the procedure but also muscles will be sutured on the midline to improve muscle tone in the area. A dren is generally left for about a week after the surgery.

¿how is your recovery after a tummy tuck?

After the surgery you will stay in the over night facility in the surgery center for one night. Exercise should not be done for the next two months and a tight garmet should be worn during this time too. For better recovery I recommend at least 10 post surgical treatments. It is also important to improve nutritional habits for keeping the results of the surgery.

Reccommendations
• To prevent liquid accumulation in the area the use of a dren for approximately one week is advised.
• It is important to use a tight garment for 8 weeks after surgery.
