Tummy tucks are popular for women to get rid of excess fat and stretch marks after pregnancy or significant weight loss. But the procedure is becoming increasingly popular for men as well. This surgery can help men tighten and tone their midsection to enhance their appearance. Here is everything you need to know to decide if a male tummy tuck may be right for you.
How the Male Tummy Tuck Works
During a male tummy tuck, the surgeon tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess skin. The procedure can take a few hours to complete under general anesthesia. Many men also opt for liposuction and skin etching with the tummy tuck to provide greater definition.
After the surgery, you may need to wear a compression garment around your midsection for about four to six weeks to reduce swelling. You may be able to return to work after approximately two weeks. Strenuous activity can be resumed about six weeks after the procedure. Results can be noticeable immediately and maintained by a healthy lifestyle.
Ideal Candidates for the Male Tummy Tuck
The ideal candidate for a male tummy tuck is in good general health and has realistic expectations on what the surgery can achieve. This procedure is best for men who are close to their ideal body weight. If you have large amounts of fat around your midsection, you may want to consider alternative treatment options such as weight loss surgery or liposuction.
In order to determine if you are an ideal candidate, you will need to set up a consultation appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon. You will be able to discuss your aesthetic goals during your visit and address any questions or concerns you may have. The surgeon can explain all the benefits and risks and recommend the best course of treatment for your needs.
