Tummy Tuck Kansas City

Many people strive for a flat and toned abdomen by integrating a healthy diet and regular exercise into their lifestyle; yet, no matter the type of fitness and nutrition method they are committed to, their desired results may still be unachievable. Tummy tuck surgery ("abdominoplasty") can help to improve the quality and appearance of sagging skin in the abdominal region.

What Is A Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck (also called "abdominoplasty") is a major surgical procedure, designed to give you a flatter and firmer abdomen by removing stubborn fat deposits and unwanted extra skin from your abdominal region and tightening the underlying muscles.

Unfortunately for most people, exercise and healthy dieting does not always successfully rid the body of stubborn fat deposits and excess skin. This plastic surgery procedure was designed to do just that.

The majority of Dr. Colyer's patients who choose to have a tummy tuck in Kansas City often develop new excitement for shopping for clothes, wearing more attractive styles, and showing off their improved figures come swimsuit season.

How Is It Performed?

Tummy tuck surgery entails the removal of excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles to create a smoother and firmer abdomen. When performing a full abdominoplasty, Dr. Colyer will make a horizontally oriented incision in the area between the pubic line and naval. The shape and length of this incision will differ upon the degree of correction. If you are primarily dissatisfied with the appearance of the abdominal area below the naval, a mini tummy tuck may be more appropriate for you. This technique requires a short horizontal incision above the pubic area and will provide abdominal muscle tightening below the naval. Liposuction ("lipoplasty"), with or without tummy tuck surgery, may be used in cases where reducing excess abdominal fat is unachievable through the natural means of weight loss.

Depending on your individual situation, Dr. Colyer will examine your target area(s) and help to decide if a full or mini tummy tuck is right for you. During your initial consultation, you may request to see before and after plastic surgery photos featuring Dr. Colyer's tummy tuck results.
