Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Surgery in Colorado Springs

Tummy tuck is the procedure used to remove excess skin and fat of the abdominal region. Occasionally, the muscle layer enclosing the abdominal cavity can become stretched out and loosened from pregnancy, weight change and age, giving you a protruding abdominal area.

A tummy tuck begins with an incision in the bikini area, just above the pubic hair line. The skin and fat of the abdomen is then elevated off of the muscle layer. If needed, the muscle layer is tightened with a row of stitches above and below the belly button. Meanwhile, the belly button is left attached to the muscle layer. The excess skin and fat is then pulled and stretched down to the incision and removed. A small opening is then created in order to relocate the belly button.

The result of the tummy tuck is a significantly flatter and tighter abdominal region. It will help reestablish the smooth contour of your stomach, waistline and reverse the effects of weight changes and pregnancy.

Our board certified cosmetic surgeons in Colorado Springs, Dr. Dash and Dr. Jain feel that a tummy tuck is a very satisfying procedure for patients because of the dramatic improvement in the shape of the upper body and torso. It can have a dramatic effect on your self perception by helping you look and feel great in clothes you thought you could never wear.
