Brazil Gets Credit For Helping Start Medical Tourism

Brazil originally opened up medical options for patients outside of the US! In 1999, Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein was the first outside of the US to be accredited by JCI.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure performed to make the abdomen firmer. In the procedure, excess fat and skin from the lower and middle abdomen is removed to give it a toned appearance. The fascia and the muscles of the abdominal wall are also tightened.

It is not the same as a liposuction, though many patients choose to undergo a liposuction along with a tummy tuck. The procedure is mainly sought out by individuals who have developed loose folds of skin after a pregnancy or those who have undergone major weight loss. Abdominoplasty is a major surgery and patients should carefully weight their options before opting for this procedure.
