WHAT IS A TUMMY TUCK OR LIPECTOMY
A firm and slim abdomen is one the characteristics we associate with health, youth and good physical condition. A limp and bumpy abdomen may cause that clothing doesn’t fit well or that we feel embarrassed showing our body in the beach, gym or even in our intimacy.
The Tummy Tuck, also known as lipectomy or dermolipectomy, is a procedure designed to flatten and provide firmness to the abdominal area. In many cases, a flaccid abdomen may be due to lack of exercise in the abdominal area muscles, or due to weight gain and loss throughout a lifetime. Occasionally, there’s a genetic factor that will contribute to abdominal obesity.
Many times, pregnancy will make that the skin loses elasticity and that abdominal muscles separate and debilitate. This flaccidity and skin excess may not be improved with diet and exercise. Lipectomy can help correcting these issues by removing skin excess, fat reduction and reaffirming abdominal muscles.
In many other cases it is also possible to remove scars caused by surgeries and stretch marks in the abdomen lower area. The result will be a firm, flat and youthful abdominal contour.

Every day it is more frequent to find cases of bad practices in Plastic Surgery in Bogotá and worldwide, as well as treatments and “aesthetic” products that play with the life, illusions and resources of the patients.
In that sense, as an advisor and pioneer in the country in a Culture of Safe Patient in Plastic Surgery, I have been involved in the creation, design and implementation of strict protocols for care and intervention and care of our patients in the pre, intra and post -operative, since this goes far beyond a slogan, it is a pattern of behavior that determines each of our day-to-day activities, procedures and treatments.
“SAFE PATIENT IS OUR BEHAVIORAL PATTERN THAT DETERMINES OUR ACTIVITIES AND PROCEDURES DAY BY DAY”
Juan Carlos Monroy
Abdominoplasty Specialist in Colombia
IS THE TUMMY TUCK THE SAME AS THE LIPECTOMY AND THE ABDOMINOPLASTY?
Yes, they are all synonyms. Aside from abdominoplasty there are similar terms such as: Abdominoplasty surgery, lipectomy, tummy tuck amongst others.
ABDOMINOPLASTY AND LIPOSCULPTURE
The abdominoplasty and the liposculpture (liposuction, lipolysis or body contour surgery) can be combined. Dr. Monroy will review your case and determine the most convenient procedures for you.
WHAT KIND OF ANESTHESIA IS USED DURING A TUMMY TUCK?
It’s recommended to perform the procedure under general anesthesia, in first place due to it being safer and also more comfortable for the patient. As of today anesthesia is a very safe procedure in expert hands, Our anesthesiologist team is highly trained anesthesia with the best quality and safety standards, generating a pleasant sensation both when getting to sleep as waking up, resulting this in a short recuperation and minimizing the sickness sensation post-operation.
Usually this type of procedure requires a short-term hospitalization, most often just one night, so we count with fully equipped facilities and rooms, as well as qualified medical and paramedical staff who will be looking after your safety and results.
HOW IS A TUMMY TUCK PROCEDURE IN COLOMBIA?
It is a surgery performed under general anesthesia due to safety and comfort for the patient, in our practice we count with one of the most safe operation rooms not only in Colombia but in Latinamerica. A low incision is made in the lower abdominal area that can be hidden even while being in underwear or small swimsuits. The skin excess is removed, the muscle abdominal walls are closed and depending on the case, the muscles anatomy is traced in those patients that desire and are candidates for abs definition.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME OF A LIPECTOMY?
Usually I recommend my patients take at least one week to recover from this procedure, it’s very important to clarify that you must not stay completely still, quite the opposite, you must resume activities as soon as possible.
Currently thanks to my personal technique, medication, post-operative therapies and the use of specialized therapeutic aids, we have our patients in a 60% recovery rate between the fifth and seventh post-operatory day.
WHAT IS THE COST OF AN ABDOMINOPLASTY IN COLOMBIA?
It is very important that you have a medical evaluation in order to estimate the cost of your tummy tuck or lipectomy in Colombia. During this appreciation we’ll evaluate your objectives and expectations about the surgery, we’ll be analyzing what’s the best option for you.
We’ll be asking about your medical history and your lifestyle, as that will allow us to create a plan accordingly to your case, as well we’ll generate laboratory exams and testing orders to determine your current health condition. Once we have all the necessary information, we’ll be able to estimate a cost for liposuction, and our patient attention team will be supporting this estimated budget by including ALL you’ll need to invest in your surgery and recovery.

AM I AN ELIGIBLE CANDIDATE FOR A TUMMY TUCK?
All patients who enjoy a good health condition, have signs of overweight or pre-obesity, with notorious abdominal flaccidity, stretch marks with or without pregnancy history are candidates for this procedure, moreover you must have steady interest in making a change and the desire to improve the quality in their lifestyle.
As well as whomever has tried non-surgical treatments, diet and exercise while investing time, resources and illusions without obtaining the desired results.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH A LIPECTOMY?
Any procedure has a certain risk level, however the important fact to point out is that we know how to minimize them, by doing an individual analysis and exhaustive handling of each case. That’s why I’m a pioneer in the Safe Patient Culture in our country, training an expert team in making our patients care, a cautious protocol is our habit.
The most important resides in knowing how to pick who will perform it, as it is a safe procedure in expert hands, qualified and honest member surgeon of the Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Colombian Society, that has flawless and wide surgical records, that practice his procedures in a certified operation room and uses the best supplies available in the market.
Bearing this in mind, risk is not completely eliminated, but definitely minimized, as this kind of procedure has the advantage to be scheduled and we’re able to take our patients under surgery at the right time for their physical and emotional health.
HOW LONG DOES A TUMMY TUCK PROCEDURE TAKES?
This surgical procedure takes on average between 3 to 5 hours, in this regard it is very important to define the amount of procedures that are reasonable and cautious to perform at once during a surgical intervention while being able to keep the care and dedication needed for each case as our main objective is to obtain ideal results.
IS IT RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM LIPOSCULPTURE AND TUMMY TUCK?
Very frequently it is recommended to perform a tummy tuck or dermolipectomy combined with a liposuction or liposculpture of any kind, meaning this Laser, Vaser, Ultrasound-assisted or MicroAire, as usually the fat excess in women is not only located in the abdomen but also in hips, back, arms and tights.
This is done with the goal to obtain a more proportional result for the body, shaping in a more precise each area, the satisfaction index from our patients has been greatly rated.
FOR HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO USE AN ABDOMINAL STRAP?
The time will depend on the evolution of each patient, but on average this can last between 45 to 60 days, under precise guidance regarding when you can rest from the strap. I’m convinced that the results will depend fundamentally from appropriate technique, due to this I don’t recommend prolonged use of abdominal straps, as usually patients go under surgery to avoid using them.
IS IT A PAINFUL PROCEDURE?
Today each step in the process is planned to manage pain, control the swelling response and shorten recovery times.
Thanks to technique, medication and technology in post-operatory we can customize and manage pain which starts from the surgery, the immediate post-operative meticulous care and the cautious care during therapy that allows us to favour results, without forcing the patient to unnecessary discomfort.
