Tummy Tuck Kansas City
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty, commonly called a “tummy tuck” by our Kansas City patients, is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen. It can also tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.
Tummy tucks are usually performed on women who suffer from sagging skin or protruding abdominal muscles after pregnancy, but tucks are also popular with men, and all people who may feel uncomfortable with their belly fat.
This procedure can dramatically reduce the appearance of a “belly” or protruding stomach. In some cases, we can restore weakened or separated muscles.
Schedule Your Tummy Tuck Consultation in Kansas City
A tummy tuck can help Kansas City patients:
If you’re in the Kansas City area and are considering tummy tuck surgery, your process begins with a private consultation with Dr. Rast. During this consultation, you’ll be asked many questions to ensure you’re a good candidate for an abdominoplasty. Be prepared for your surgeon to discuss your medical history, as well as likely outcomes and potential risks related to your surgery.
Lab testing and a physical examination are also carried out as part of your abdominoplasty preparation. Your surgery will be performed at a licensed surgical center in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
