Dr. Matt Chhatre can help you reclaim a youthful, attractive figure through a range of body contouring procedures at his Kansas City area cosmetic surgery practice.
Aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations can all take a toll on your body. If you have lost considerable weight and have excess, unwanted skin, or if you just have several areas of your body you would like to tighten or lift, body contouring can help. A comprehensive body contouring plan will combine several procedures, such as arm lift, breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction, each of which will be customized with your desired results in mind.

Body Contouring Procedures
Techniques Dr. Chhatre can use to help contour your body include:
Liposuction is a procedure in which a cannula – a thin suctioning device – is used to remove stubborn deposits of fat from selected areas of the body. This allows Dr. Chhatre to refine the skin and give patients smoother, trimmer body contours.
Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is an excellent way to restore tone to the midsection through the removal of excess fat and skin. If necessary, the underlying muscles are also tightened to improve the abdominal profile. The result is a firmer, flatter abdomen and a fitter overall appearance.
We do the relatively traditional buttock lift by removing excess skin and fat from the upper part of the buttock, then tightening the remaining skin.
By removing excess fat and skin under the bicep and tricep, and tightening the remaining skin, an arm lift procedure can eliminate sagginess and restore a fit, attractive contour to the upper arms.
If the skin on your inner thighs is sagging, a thigh lift operation can tighten the skin and create a smoother natural contour. As with arm lift surgery, the surgeon achieves this effect by removing excess fat and skin, and then tightening the remaining skin.
A breast lift begins with an incision around or directly blow the nipple. Next, the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to create a perkier contour and increase firmness. The nipple and areola are then repositioned. If necessary, large areolas are reduced by removing excess skin tissue. Once the breasts are reshaped, the remaining skin is tightened and incisions are closed.
Gynecomastia, a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, can be corrected by removing excess skin and fat, and then tightening the remaining skin. The result is a more defined, masculine look in the chest region.
