What Is a Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck, which is also known as abdominoplasty, is a popular body contouring procedure. This body contouring procedure primarily focuses on removing and tightening loose or excess skin on the abdomen. In some cases, it may involve the removal of some abdominal fat, and abdominal muscles may be tightened.
What Does the Surgical Procedure Involve?
Abdominoplasty procedures are performed in the comfort of our Kansas facility. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Incisions are made to allow for access to the fat and abdominal muscles. A small amount of fat may be removed removed, skin is tightened, and abdominal muscles are tightened. However, as a reminder, this is not a procedure for removing large amounts of fat.
As this is an involved surgical procedure, it is important to allow yourself plenty of time to recover from the process. There will be some downtime associated with the procedure, and the area is carefully wrapped to promote optimal healing. Our professional staff will provide you with all of the information you need to properly prepare for and recover from this procedure.
While the results achieved with a tummy tuck will vary for each person, most people enjoy visible results within a few weeks of their procedure. It is important to allow the area time to heal so any potential swelling may subside. Although results are intended to be permanent, it is important to continue a healthy lifestyle to preserve them.
Could I Be a Good Candidate?
A tummy tuck should not be pursued as a weight loss treatment. It is not intended to be used as a replacement for a healthy diet and regular exercise. The purpose of this procedure is to address concerns or fat that have not been responsive to traditional measures. However, most generally healthy adults with realistic expectations for treatment may qualify as candidates.
A consultation with us in Overland Park is essential to determine if an abdominoplasty procedure is right for you. They will review your health and your goals, and they will work with you to develop your customized plan for treatment.
