Tummy Tucks at the Plastic Surgery Clinic, Manhattan KS

Abdominoplasty

Also known as a tummy tuck, an abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin. In most cases abdominoplasties produce an abdomen profile that is smoother and firmer by restoring weakened or separated muscles.

Sometimes methods such as exercise and weight control cannot achieve our goals toward a well-toned abdomen. Even people with otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.

Common causes of this include: pregnancy, aging, significant fluctuations in weight, heredity, or prior surgery. Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if you are physically healthy and have realistic expectations.

Mini-Abdominoplasty

A mini tummy tuck can improve the appearance of excess fat and loose, stretched out skin in the lower abdominal area. The main difference from an abdominoplasty is the belly button is not moved.

Abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin attempting to create an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.

The most common causes of this include: pregnancy, aging, significant fluctuations in weight, heredity, or prior surgery. Abdominoplasty is a good option for you if you are physically healthy and have realistic expectations.

Panniculectomy

Panniculectomy is considered a necessity as patients lose great amounts of excess fat. People who have lost a substantial amount of weight through diet, exercise or bariatric surgery, as well as women who held on to their extra weight following pregnancy may be candidates for panniculectomy.

Panniculectomy is different from an abdominoplasty, because this procedure tends to remove a greater amount of excess fat and skin than abdominoplasty.

Post Gastric Bypass Abdominoplasty

Post Gastric Bypass is basically an abdominoplasty, removal of excess fat to create a slimmer flatter abdomen that includes a vertical and horizontal incision to remove the most skin so that it’s not loose and hanging. This procedure follows bypass surgery helping to return the abdominal area to a more normal appearance after a significant amount of weight loss due to Gastric Bypass.
