    Default Any plastic surgeon in Mexico - Abdominoplasty

    Hello all
    Just wondering if any one had gone through tummy tuck in Mexico.
    If so can you share or suggest a good surgeon in Mexico.

    I had done my VSG almost 5 years ago, lost 120 lbs and able to maintain the
    Weight ( +/-10 lbs). Lately I feel my skin is very loose and showing up
    Out of my cloths. So decided to go for tummy tuck.

    If any one can suggest a surgeon in Mexico, will be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    I am thinking of doing it in the US. From the seminars I've been to it's not that expensive. But I'm still a little chicken. (OK a lot chicken). But I would love the tummy gone, even though it hides well under clothes.

    I do know they say to wait a year after reaching goal before surgery and have a BMI of 25 or lower.

    I researched having a tummy tuck in Mexico. Turns out it isn't cheaper at all. The only way it would have been worth it was if I needed/wanted to have multiple procedures. My friend had tummy, arms, butt, boobs, lipo, basically everything in Mexico for $12,000. I was quoted about $7,000 for tummy which is about what I would pay here in the States. The traveling and accommodations in Mexico make the costs go too high to make it worth it for me.

    Hello Katrina
    I totally agree with you. Just got a quote from Mexico charging 9k for TT alone.
    When I consider flight and other expenses. Totally make sense to get it done in
    Canada. Thanks for your response.

    Having a tummy tuck surgery is quiet expensive indeed!

    Hello Katrina,

    Did you push you TT in Mexico? And also curious about your friend, with all those surgeries, any side effect/s? TIA

    I ended up giving up on the TT for now. It wasn't any cheaper for me to go to Mexico, and I didn't have the patience to save up the money for more than a couple of months. I only made it up to like $2,000 in my TT fund before I went and blew it all on other things.

    My friend doesn't seem to have any side effects from all her surgeries. She's very pleased with her results. I would not have been pleased with those results, but glad she's happy. I just can't get past the huge arm scars. And I can't even tell she had a Brazilian butt lift, though I didn't know her prior to surgery. Her tummy and boobs look great though.
