What is a Tummy Tuck for Men?
Changes in body weight and aging can lead to loose skin and uneven body contour around the abdominal region, resulting in a less-than-desirable look. Men who are looking to achieve a tighter and fitter midsection can often benefit from a tummy tuck. This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal region for a smoother, tighter abdominal appearance.
Who can Benefit from a Tummy Tuck for Men?
Men who wish to eliminate excess fat and skin from their abdomen and tighten their abdominal wall muscles can often benefit from a tummy tuck. This procedure works best if you are in relatively good shape but have an accumulation of fat in your abdomen or loose abdominal skin that is unaffected by diet and exercise. To determine if this surgery is right for your goals, contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment.
The tummy tuck procedure can be performed using IV sedation or general anesthesia. At Plastic Surgery Associated, we perform two types of tummy tucks, including:
The doctor makes an incision just above your pubic area from one hipbone to the other. Your abdominal muscles are pulled close and stitched together to tighten them and slim your waist, and any excess skin is removed. The procedure usually takes two to five hours.
Also known as a mini-tummy-tuck, this is a less complicated procedure often used if fat deposits are limited to your lower abdomen. It usually takes an hour or two, with the doctor making a much smaller incision.
Most partial and complete abdominoplasties are performed on an outpatient basis. However, if you need more extensive surgery, the doctors at Plastic Surgery Associates will perform the procedure at one of the local hospitals where they have privileges.
Tummy Tuck for Men Recovery
Your abdomen may be swollen for a few days after surgery, and you may have slight pain or discomfort, which can be treated with medication. Surface stitches will be removed within a week and deeper sutures in two to three weeks. You should be able to return to work two to four weeks after your surgery, but it may take a few months before you are completely back to normal. Your scars will never disappear completely, but they will diminish and lighten in color.
Abdominoplasty results are long-lasting for most people who have a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
