A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body contouring procedure in which excess fat and skin are removed from your stomach. Whether from weight gain and loss, pregnancy or age, a tummy tuck can help restore weakened or separated muscles and can provide a firmer, smoother appearance.
A tummy tuck performed by Northern Colorado board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Denis Gonyon can help restore your feelings of self-confidence and appeal, through an improvement in physical activity and how your clothes fit and feel. To schedule a complimentary consultation, please call (970) 624-7979 today.
Tummy Tuck Techniques
Every patient has unique needs and Dr. Gonyon works with all of our patients on an individual basis to ensure the most appropriate techniques are utilized, and the results are customized to address your specific concerns.
At Gonyon Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, we offer three types of tummy tucks:
- Complete tummy tuck
- Partial or mini tummy tuck
- Circumferential or extended tummy tuck
The type of tummy tuck you will require will depend on the amount of excess fat and skin you currently have, the amount of abdominal muscle tightening required, and the look you are hoping to achieve.

How Can a Tummy Tuck Benefit Me?
A tummy tuck is an ideal way to minimize the appearance of a larger stomach, but it is not an effective weight loss method. Patients who are interested in a tummy tuck should be close to their ideal weight and should not have plans of becoming pregnant in the future. Weight loss will result in excess skin, and may require additional procedures.

Our Devotion to You
At Gonyon Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, we understand the unique needs of each of our patients. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gonyon will carefully listen to your concerns and goals, and he will take the time to fully answer any of your questions. He will perform a thorough evaluation of your frame, and help you determine what tummy tuck method will best suit your needs. If you require additional weight loss prior to your surgery, Dr. Gonyon may recommend a diet and exercise routine. For larger patients, bariatric surgery may be required prior to a tummy tuck.
