Plastic Surgery vs Bariatric Surgery

Often plastic surgeons are employed to deal with undesired effects (e.g. excessive loose skin in abdominal area) of bariatric surgery or substantial weight loss. Some of our clients ask us whether they are good candidates for plastic surgery, because they are overweight. The answer to this question is it depends. Our cosmetic surgeons evaluate each case individually and will provide you with their recommendation after they have a chance to look at your biniki photographs and the forms that they ask you to fill out.

Let’s talk about these two surgeries. Bariatric surgery differs from plastic surgery. Bariatric surgery is often referred to as a weight loss surgery. This procedure is intended for individuals who are excessively overweight. It is a surgical procedure for weight loss that is preformed on the stomach and intestines. This type of surgery changes the makeup of the digestive system, by limiting the amount of food a patient can eat and digest.

Client who come to us to deal with weight issues often think that liposuction and a tummy tuck may be an ideal solution. Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a cosmetic operation that is performed by a licensed plastic surgeon. This type of surgery removes fat from various places on the surface of one’s body. Liposuction is a surgical technique that removes extra fat located in the skin and, while full tummy tuck also tightens underlying muscle tissue. The main purpose of this procedure is to improve the body’s contour. However, there are limits to how much fat can be removed in one surgery. Consequently, some patients are good candidates for bariatric surgery.

Brazilian Butt Lift… What is it and how much does it cost?

What is Brazilian Butt Lift and How Much Does This Plastic Surgery Procedure Cost?

brazilian-butt-lift-costBrazilian Butt Lift is a procedure whereby the plastic surgeon removes fat from one area of patient’s body and injects that fat into the buttocks. Although liposuction per se can take anywhere between a half an hour and five hours, the Brazilian Butt Lift shouldn’t take more than an hour. The end result of the procedure is a rounder and more prominent butt.

The cost of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is $1,500. In addition to this procedure the patient must also have some liposuction performed in order to suction some fat from other parts of patient’s body. Here is an example of how much a two areas liposuction package combine with the Brazilian Butt Lift may cost. Our all inclusive 2 Areas Liposuction Package is $3,999. Therefore, the combined package will cost $5,499. Keep in mind that this price includes airfare and hotel stay. Moreover, the package includes postoperative pain medication, postoperative garments, antibiotics and steroids for swelling. A comparable package in the U.S. is around $16,000.

MedVacation’s advisory team went an extra mile to identify and select plastic surgeons who have outstanding educational background. Our medical advisors took time to travel to each partner clinic to evaluate the cosmetic surgeons and the medical facilities in which they operate. Our plastic surgeons in Mexico have nearly 20 years of experience in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. They either run their own private practices or are heads of plastic surgery departments at major private hospitals. They perform their surgeries in state-of-the-art operating suites. We chose plastic surgeons who use only anesthesiologists rather than nurses anesthetists.
