Abdominoplasty Prices in Kansas City: Putting a Priority on Value

Gwendolyn Godfrey - Wednesday, July 05, 2017

Abdominoplasty prices in Kansas City are frequently requested by prospective patients.

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) at the Swanson Center, is one one of the most gratifying procedures for patients. Surveys of patients at the Swanson Center find satisfaction rates of 98.6%. Like any procedure, prices vary between operators and facilities. An advantage at the Swanson Center is having a state-licensed ambulatory surgery center on-site. This helps to control costs and ensures excellent customer service for patients. There are other advantages, too – optimal sterility and safe anesthesia care that is tailored to the needs of the cosmetic surgery patient.

For most patients in Kansas City and elsewhere, surgery prices are a major concern. At the Swanson Center, pricing is straightforward. An abdominoplasty typically costs $6000 to $6500, depending on patient size. Most patients (90%) choose to have at least some degree of liposuction at the same time, and this adds to the price. The anesthesia and surgery center fees are included. The Swanson Center is cost conscious. The objective is top value – competitive pricing with no compromise in safety or quality.

Dr. Eric Swanson of the Swanson Center in Kansas City is a well-known advocate for evidence-based medicine and has written more than 100 publications in the top plastic surgery peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Swanson is a frequent presenter and invited faculty member at the national meetings of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He frequently lectures on the topic of safety in body contouring surgery and particularly abdominoplasty. Dr. Swanson has been in practice for over 25 years and specializes exclusively in cosmetic surgery.

After having children, women are often ideal candidates for a tummy tuck. Pregnancies do stretch the abdominal skin and muscles. Both men and women can benefit if they have an unwanted skin roll after major weight loss. Patients realize that no amount of dieting or exercise can correct excess skin laxity. Fortunately, this problem can be remedied and a pre-pregnancy contour can be restored.

Stretch marks are often contained on the excess skin flap that is removed during a tummy tuck. Stretch marks below the belly button are eliminated. Any stretch marks above the level of the belly button are moved down to the lower abdomen where they are less obvious. The belly button is preserved, brought through a new opening.

A tummy tuck can have a profound effect on self-esteem. Surveys at the Swanson Center reveal that 76% of patients report an improvement in self-esteem, and 93% of patients find they are more motivated to stay in shape after surgery. They no longer feel discouraged when they look in the mirror. A pouchy abdomen can be a great source of embarrassment for women, who often wear loose-fitting clothing or jackets to hide their protuberant tummies. After abdominoplasty, many women are able to tuck in their tops and wear form-fitting clothing that flatters their figure, often for the first time in years (since before they had children). Many patients, when seen in follow-up in the office after surgery, volunteer that the surgery changed their lives.

If you believe that you might be a candidate, you have likely already searched abdominoplasty and abdominoplasty prices in Kansas City. The next step is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Eric Swanson at the Swanson Center. The consultation is unhurried. All of your questions are answered so you know exactly what to expect.
