Abdominoplasty Kansas City

November 21, 2013, 9:03 am

After pregnancy or a dramatic weight loss there is often excess, sagging skin on the mid-section left behind. This excess skin can weigh on a person’s confidence especially since no amount of diet and exercise can make it go away.

Through Kansas City Abdominoplasty, also known as Tummy Tuck, the excess can be removed to create a smoother, tighter, more toned appearance. People who are in good health and have been at a stable, healthy weight for at least 6 months, and who have excess skin around the abdomen are generally good candidates for Abdominoplasty. In some cases Abdominoplasty may be performed in combination with Liposuction to remove excess stubborn fat cells. Abdominoplasty may also be done in combination with breast augmentation and/or a breast lift- a combination typically performed on women who have had children in a procedure plan coined the Mommy Makeover.

There are varying types of Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, procedures depending on the needs and goals of each individual patient. One thing to keep in mind when considering an Abdominoplasty procedure is that the scar from this surgery will be permanent, but most plastic surgeons work hard to ensure that it will be easily hidden by most undergarments or swim wear.
