Removing Fat and Restoring Confidence with Abdominal Sculpting

Taqtik partner My Medical Vacations is a team of medical tourism consultants that help medical travelers realize their dreams with procedures like abdominal sculpting liposuction, and best of all they connect patients with hospitals and beach front accommodation in stunningly beautiful Cancun.
What is abdominal sculpting liposuction?
Abdominal sculpting abdominal liposuction at Playamed Hospital uses cutting edge third generation ultrasound assisted techniques to remove hard to shift, excess fat from the abdomen. Ultrasound assisted liposuction is unique because it involves minimal damage to tissues and blood tissues. The abdomen is sculpted to proved a contoured and athletic appearance in under three hours, making the underlying musculature more visible.
What to expect from the procedure
Depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed, as well as preexisting abdominal scar tissue, the procedure should take in between two to three hours. The patient is put under general anesthesia and should stay in Cancun to recover close to the hospital for approximately six to nine days. The overall results will become noticeably apparent in about six to nine months, but results do depend on patient diet and exercise regime post surgery. It is essential to the patient that they follow the surgeon’s post care instructions carefully. ultrasound liposuction

New Breasts: New Confidence for Laura!

Laura has been wanting to change her breast size ever since she was a teenager, and so after working hard and saving she decided to book a trip to Thailand to have a breast augmentation. This is her story, pictures and videos that show amazing results!

“I wanted to do this for myself, I knew this would be my breast size if I didn’t have the procedure, so I wanted to save up the money and do it for me!”

After the procedure Laura was delighted with the results from her Breast Augmentation, feeling that it was better than she could have expected.
Her biggest concern pre-surgery had been the fear of being put under aesthetic, but with the support of the hospital staff and her mum who came along as support, she felt safe and secure.
Laura’s Client Service Manager in Thailand visited Laura and her mum regularly at their accommodation and took them to lunch with other clients who were having their own surgical procedures.
The doctors and nurses took great care of her, and she would feel confident in using a medical facilitator like Taqtik again if she wanted another procedure.

“The hospital care was better than I could have imagined, I was looked after extremely well. All the doctors, and nurses were really supportive”

“Everything is fantastic! I have healed so well and I’m really happy! They look and feel so much more natural and have dropped lots which I’m happy with!”

Top Ten Tips for your Cosmetic Surgery Holiday

Based on past client feedback and interviewing the surgeons, we detail 10 essential points to keep in mind before you travel on a surgery holiday!

DO have realistic expectations

The biggest factor that determines what you will look like after surgery is what you look like before!
We are all different, so the same surgery will look different for two different people, even if you are the same age, shape and size.
After a breast augmentation, the same size implant will look completely different in two different patients, as all nipples and chest shape and sizes are unique.
You cannot hope that your breasts will look like Scarlett Johansson and your butt will not look like Beyoncé’s! Judging yourself on others is just a recipe for disappointment and regret.
Do your homework, but be prepared for improvement, not perfection. Also remember that surgery will not change your life, that is up to you.

DON’T smoke!

Smoking promotes poor healing and bad scarring, so our surgeons recommend that you give up smoking completely for at least 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery. You should not take Nicorette gum or nicotine patches either. The chance of developing keloid scars are greatly increased if you do smoke.

DON’T fall prey to the trends of new surgery methods

Plastic surgery methods are sophisticated now, and available the world over. Occasionally new names crop up for old methods, which are particularly favored by the more expensive surgeons at home to portray that they are inventors of new methods! More often than not, these ‘new’ methods are dressed up from traditional procedures, and all that has changed is the name! Beware of surgeons and websites that throw fancy words at you and then charge double!

DON’T feel pressured by the opinions of others

There should be only one reason that you are getting the surgery done – because YOU want to! Well-meaning friends and family will have their own comments, but don’t be swayed into or out of making a decision based on the opinions of others. People have surgery for a million reasons, but make sure that this is YOUR reason!

DO get your body into tip top condition before your holiday

A good diet and regular exercise in the weeks leading up to surgery can benefit healing and recovery. The goal is to get your body in optimal health, the blood and oxygen circulating. We have consistently found that the clients who are in good health and condition prior to surgery have the best healing and less obvious scarring in the months after surgery.
The measure of ideal body weight is BMI or Body Mass Index, which is a ratio of body weight in Kg to height in metres squared. Normal BMI is between 18 to 25. Candidates who are more than 15kg over the ideal body weight are not good candidates for cosmetic surgery such as liposuction or abdominoplasty, because these procedures are designed only for body sculpting and are not for weight reduction.
Surgery on overweight or obese patients will not achieve the goals and only result in patient dissatisfaction and higher chance of complications. Overweight patients should enter an exercise and diet regime to lose weight to near normal level and become suitable candidates.

DO get yourself some advice before you leave on wound/scar healing

Some scars can be treated with compression therapy, and some with topical creams. The creams are applied to reduce scarring and to speed up the healing process. Rose hip, aloe vera and some Vitamin E lotions have been found to help speed recovery. Massaging these creams helps soothe and soften the scars. The surgeon can also prescribe a specialized crème for reducing the appearance of scars. This must be applied morning and evening.

DO ensure you have a thorough consultation

The consultation is the most important part of the surgery, it is when you can ask all the questions that you have before the surgery. The surgeon will have as much time for you as you need, so use this time and don’t be shy to ask all the questions that you need.

DO cover up from the sun

Whatever treatment that you have, one thing is essential – keep all scars out of the sun! All good surgeons will advise you to do this – it is necessary for proper scar healing. Exposure to the harmful UV rays of the sun may damage the skin and lead to bad healing. So, bring your sunscreen and a good hat.

DON’T be afraid to ask questions!

Before you go, when you get to your destination, and after surgery, never hesitate to contact one of your team at TAQTIK to ask any questions. We will pass all medical questions to the surgeon and get back to you as soon as possible. We will be in touch with you after your holiday, we also like to ask if you can send across photos regularly so the surgeon can see wound healing and how the results are forming.

DO have fun!

Don’t forget to have a great holiday while you are recovering! There is plenty to do, as our team will show you, so take a bit of spare cash to make sure that you have a great holiday.
Pampering treatments, shopping trips, day trips, dinners and nights out are all possible, and can all be booked after your surgery, when you are feeling well. So make the most of your holiday – get some rest, get some fun nights in and out, and you will be feeling on top of the world when you arrive home!

A Face Lift Turns Back the Clock for 70-year-old Sandy

70-year-old Sandy came home to Australia from her surgical holiday as if from a time machine!

Sick and tired of looking worn out and drained, she embarked on a surgical journey that would take years off her face. Looking for international health care solutions she contacted the care team at Taqtik, who connected her with the right surgeon, destination and accommodation for her budget and surgical goals.

After her consultation Sandy choose to undergo multiple procedures- a full face lift, an upper and lower blepharoplasty and a sub-mental lipectomy with great results.

We asked Sandy to share her experience, and this is her story.

” Arriving at the huge airport I was met by a lovely man named Augustine. He was so very helpful to both my partner and I. He was an absolute gem of a man. He was really like a tour guide, explaining what everything was that we observed on our long journey to the Hotel.
He was always on time to pick me up for appointments at the hospital. He even took us on a tour of KL, to Vatu Caves, a site I really wanted to see.
If I lived in KL I’d want to have him as my personal driver. Such a pleasant man.
The Client Service Manager, Kumari, I just loved this lady. She was such a calming influence on me when I was admitted, and she was by my side when I was absolutely terrified of having the staples removed.
She was constantly in touch with me every day ensuring my wounds were healing and that all my needs were met. Another gem on your team. I will consider her a friend for life. She is such an empathic, caring lady and a very good nurse.
The staff at Beverley Wilshire hospital were amazing and very gentle people. They cared for me very well. As for Dr Nasir, well what a gentleman. I loved him, and I’m so very happy with the results of my facelift. I don’t feel like a 70-year-old anymore.
I would highly recommend Gorgeous Getaways to anyone wanting cosmetic surgery.
I would also recommend Lanson Place Ambassador Row where we stayed. My second time there. It was so well maintained, the food was great, the staff were very helpful and it was CHEAP! “

Why a face lift?

As we age, our facial skin loosens, and wrinkles and the muscles of the neck may weaken as well. Anything that can cause the skin to lose elasticity will hasten the ageing process, including sun exposure, weight fluctuations and heredity.
While a face lift cannot stop the aging process, it can often make a person appear to be a decade younger than their actual age.
Face lift Cosmetic Surgery can address these problems by firming and tightening the skin of the face and neck all in one step. It is most effective for the lower face (jowls and neck). A double chin can also be improved at the same time by a surgical procedure called submental lipectomy.
To get the best results for a facial rejuvenation, face lifts are frequently done in conjunction with other procedures such as upper eyelid blepharoplasty and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Your surgeon may also recommend injections of cosmetic fillers for reducing fine lines, deep creases in your forehead or frown lines between your eyebrows.

Will a Face lift improve skin tone?

Contrary to popular opinion, the texture of the skin will not be changed by a face lift. Acne scars, age spots, fine lines and smoker’s creases will soon return to their original texture, no matter how tight the skin is pulled.
A face lift will not give someone beautiful skin unless they have beautiful skin to begin with. If you have a skin issue that you would like to improve, it may be worth considering a skin treatment such as laser resurfacing in combination with a facelift to improve the texture of the skin and smooth skin wrinkles.

Best candidates for a face lift

Both men and women have face lifts, with the best candidates being those whose face and neck has excess fat, lines and has begun to sag. The average age for patients is 40-50 years, but older patients have also had successful face lifts. In general, the best candidates for face lift are:


• People with good facial skin elasticity
• In good physical health
• Psychologically stable
• Non-smokers
• Wanting to improve the appearance of their face and neck
• Well informed in regard to the procedure’s outcome
• Having realistic expectations


And generally, have:


• A deep line, or fold, running from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.
• Jowls, or loss of a well-defined jaw line associated with youthfulness.
• Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging of the “highlight” areas of the cheekbones.
• Loose skin, wrinkles, vertical “cords” or excess fatty tissue in the neck.

Preparation for a face lift

Before you undergo a face lift, it is important for you to discuss any medical conditions that you have and tell your surgeon about any medications that you are taking. If your surgeon decides that you can have a face lift, discuss the procedure thoroughly with them before deciding if you want to go through with the procedure. You may still change your mind even after discussing the procedure with your surgeon.
Your consultation with the surgeon will give you a detailed understanding of the treatment – the extent of surgery, your health evaluation, your expectations and exactly where the areas of the face will be treated. When you are happy with what has been discussed, you will sign a booking form for the operation.
Your surgeon should be able to answer any questions that you have about face lifts including questions about what to expect during and after a face lift and the complications or problems that sometimes occur with face lifts. You may also take information from this website to your appointment to discuss with him.
You will have a physical evaluation of the areas to be treated. At this appointment you and your surgeon will discuss your goals, and last queries you have and finalize the plan for surgery. From this examination, he can determine the best procedure to use, and then explain it to you in detail, including the benefits and limitations. The surgeon may also recommend a combination of the face lift with eyelid blepharoplasty, browlift or submental liposuction, for a better facial profile.
It is important to stress the importance of not smoking before a face lift procedure. Smoking can cause problems with circulation and make complications more likely, including post-operative chest procedures.

Surgical Procedure

The classic facelift, or SMAS, is recommended by the surgeons. This is performed by making an incision at the temples behind the hairline. The incision typically extends downward, along the natural creases in the skin, in front or on the edge of the ear, in the crease of the ear lobe, and behind the ear. Making the incision in the natural creases helps hide scarring after surgery. The surgeon then separates the skin and muscles of the face from the deeper facial tissues.
In some cases, the skin is removed, in others the skin and muscle tissues are reshaped. The underlying muscle may be tightened with the skin, or separately. After the tightening or removal of excess skin, the skin is re-draped and sutured.

Face lift patients normally undergo general anaesthesia. Time in surgery is approximately 4 to 6 hours. In some cases, drainage tubes are left in place under certain areas of the skin for about 2 days to reduce post-surgical swelling. Depending upon the extent of the procedure, a face lift may be performed under local anaesthesia—while you are numbed and sedated, but awake, or a light general aesthetic, where you are lightly sleeping. You should discuss anaesthesia options with your plastic surgeon and the anaesthesiologist.

Recovery and Post-op care

After surgery, patients may experience moderate swelling of the eyelids and other facial areas. Immediately after surgery a large dressing is usually applied, but this will depend on which surgeon is doing the surgery as they all work differently. It is removed typically within 2 days after surgery and may be replaced with an elastic wrap. Any stitches will be removed after 6 days unless you have dissolving sutures. There is normally some discomfort following face lift surgery, which can be managed with medications.
You will be moving around in a couple of days, but we advise you to relax for a week or so. Strenuous activity should be avoided until the bruising and swelling has subsided. This can take four to six weeks; however, within two weeks the swelling should be reduced enough to engage in some social activities. Many patients prefer to delay significant social activities for four weeks after surgery.
The medical facilitator you choose through Taqtik will provide excellent post-care support, with follow-up visits and programs to assist your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know and we will schedule an appointment with the surgeon.

Taqtik mens butt lift
CategoriesCosmetic Surgery

Men are re-shaping their butts to feel more masculine.

Reshaping the buttock offers several options – liposuction, buttock implants, and butt lift. Which option is best for you? Learn more about how men are re-shaping their butts to feel more masculine, and what to expect from surgery.

Why get a butt lift?

More and more media attention has been focused on having prominent and muscular butt cheeks. Exercise may not be delivering the firm, masculine derriere that you want.  Genetics plays a part too. So does sitting for long periods of time. Or perhaps you have lost a lot of weight.

Buttock augmentation can improve flat or sagging buttocks as well as asymmetrical or small butts.

You may also want to consider a buttock implants if you and your doctor determine that you need something more pronounced or permanent than a butt lift. Some surgeons may suggest liposuction to reshape not only your buttock but also the surrounding area. Liposuction may be done by itself or in conjunction with buttock implants or the butt lift. Talk with your doctor about which procedure or treatments will give you the look you want.

Good candidates for a butt lift

While a consultation with a qualified surgeon can assess your qualifications as a candidate for a butt lift, in general, surgeons are looking for the following:

  • You’re in good overall health and who are at or near their goal weight. Generally, buttock augmentation can increase the size of your butt while improving its shape and balance.
  • You have realistic goals about what butt augmentation can achieve for you physically. A butt lift can be the start of a new, more confident and masculine you if you put aside the time to heal properly.

Recovery Time and Restrictions

Recovery time varies depending on the patient. Your surgeon will give you post-operative recovery instructions, but in general your surgeon will expect that you do the following.

  • Compression Bandages- Patients are required to wear a compression bandage or garment immediately after surgery for a length of time recommended by your physician.
  • Bed Rest- Depending on your doctor’s instructions, there may be several days of bed rest followed by weeks of limited physical exercise. Most certainly you will experience swelling, bruising and numbness. 
  • Exercise- In general, patients are advised to avoid vigorous exercise for the first month after surgery to allow the body time to recover and heal. Your post-surgery instructions will include guidelines about limitations on physical exercise.
  • Follow ups- You will be given a schedule of follow up visits either with the doctor who performed your surgery or your doctor at home if you have traveled for the procedure.
  • Smoking- Because it reduces the amount of oxygen in the body, smoking cigarettes can increase the risk of infection. If you are a smoker, inform your doctor so that he or she can advise you as to the time when you should refrain from smoking before and after surgery. Or perhaps this surgery is the reason to give up smoking completely!

As a general rule, within three months your body will be completely healed even though the results of the surgery will be visible almost immediately.  Return to your level of normal activity gradually per your doctor’s instructions. Trying to do too much too quickly can result in delayed healing or a more serious complication including asymmetry

Possible Risks and Complications

Even though buttock augmentation is a fairly common cosmetic treatment, it is still surgery and carries with it risks and possible complications.

While your surgeon will discuss your particular risks with you, here are some common problems that can occur during or after butt lift surgery:

  • Bruising, swelling and numbness around the surgical sites
  • Infection and bleeding
  • Blood pooling under the skin called a hematoma
  • A negative reaction to the anesthesia
  • Asymmetry

Your doctor will advise you of general risk factors as well as those related to you and your health profile. You can minimize complications by following the advice of your surgeon, both before and after your buttock augmentation surgery.

Remember to Follow Your Doctor’s Orders!

To reduce the unpleasant after effects of the surgery, follow your doctor’s recommendations closely and notify your healthcare provider if you experience any signs of infection or other health problems.
