Plastic surgery to improve the appearance of the abdomen

At Mendoza Plastic Surgery, we understand that body image is a very important factor for many people. Therefore, today we will talk about how to improve the appearance of the abdomen from plastic surgery and we will recommend the appropriate procedures. Remember… Every surgery and every result is personalized; the body’s processes are individual.

In plastic surgery, there are two well-known procedures to improve the appearance of the abdomen: Abdominoplasty, also known as “Tummy Tuck”, and Liposuction. Each of these surgeries has its indications and an ideal patient prototype, in order to achieve the best result.

Let’s know a little more about these two procedures.


Abdominoplasty, also known as Tummy Tuck, is one of the most prominent options to improve the appearance of the abdomen. This surgical intervention not only removes excess abdominal skin and fat, but also strengthens the muscles of the abdominal wall, providing amazing and lasting results.

You may ask… How do I know if I am a candidate for this procedure?

The ideal patient for a Tummy Tuck is the person who has excess skin and fat in the abdominal region, usually due to significant weight changes, pregnancy or aging. Generally in these cases the abdominal muscles are weakened or separated.


  • Eliminates excess skin and fat.
  • Repairs the abdominal muscle.
  • Natural and long lasting results.


Liposuction is a plastic surgery that aims to eliminate excess localized fat, sculpting and defining specific areas of the body, in this case, the abdomen. This procedure is a tool to mold your figure in a harmonious way.

The conditions for a patient to apply for Liposuction is that he/she has adipose tissue located in the abdomen that has not responded adequately to diet and exercise; it also works in people who are looking for a more defined and harmonious body contour.

Benefits of Liposuction:

  • Immediate results.
  • More defined and harmonious appearance of the abdomen.
  • Easier abdominal marking.

As you may have noticed, each procedure has an indication and a patient prototype. We recommend you to make a previous evaluation with the indicated professional, since he/she will be the person in charge of confirming the surgery that fits your case.
