For many patients, genetics and weight fluctuations cause abdomen muscles to stretch beyond their ability to retract regardless of how hard they work out. Moms especially have the additional strain of childbearing that can permanently weaken the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty from Vanessa Voge, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Wichita, KS can re-contour and reshape your torso, giving you the taut stomach you’ve always wanted.
Tummy Tuck Surgery in Wichita, KS
Combining technical skill, body planning and artistic science, Dr. Voge can achieve highly individualized results for every body shape. Her incision patterns correlate with natural anatomical lines to minimize the appearance of scars. During your tummy tuck surgery, stomach muscles are tightened by pulling the muscles and suturing them together to create a stronger abdominal wall and narrower waist. Excess skin is removed by pulling the skin down and creating a new navel opening. Many patients who undergo tummy tuck surgery also received liposuction to get rid of excess fat.
