Tummy Tuck for Men
Abdominoplasty – “Tummy Tuck”
A Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure designed to flatten the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat, and to tighten the abdominal wall.
Male Tummy tuck surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis. The method used for tummy tuck surgery will depend on the patient’s preference and what your surgeon thinks will provide the most beneficial results.
Recovery: What to Expect after Your Male Tummy Tuck
Once the surgery is finished, a compression garment should be worn to help diminish swelling. To have a safe recovery, it is important that patients follow postoperative guidelines. Most patients can return to work in about two weeks but should avoid any strenuous activity or exercise for 2 to 6 weeks. Scarring can easily be concealed underneath a bathing suit or underwear and will fade over the coming months.
*Abdominoplasty is often combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a male breast reduction, male liposuction, male eyelid surgery, or a combined male makeover procedure.
Results after Male Tummy Tuck Surgery
The results of a tummy tuck are immediately apparent after surgery is complete and will improve over the coming weeks. Patients are usually thrilled with their results and gain more confidence knowing that their abdominals are flatter and more toned.
