Male Tummy Tuck Before And After

View before and after photos of the male tummy tuck procedure performed by top plastic surgeons.

Male tummy tuck is a reasonable option for removing redundant and loose abdominal skin after major weight loss. Many men choose to have a tummy tuck after weight loss surgery

Many men are good candidates for a tummy tuck procedure. The primary reason for needing a tummy tuck for men is a significant amount of weight loss, either from dieting and exercise or from weight loss surgery.

If you have significant amount of loose skin, then I recommend that you consult a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for a tummy tuck. An abdominoplasty targets loose skin usually with stretch marks and muscle weakness.

There are differences in the distribution of fat between women and men. Men can carry significant intra-abdominal fat (around organs). Liposuction is a treatment option for removing subcutaneous fat and can provide smoother contours that accentuate the shaping of a tummy tuck.

Significant amounts of excess skin or lax skin will not retract completely after liposuction and may necessitate excision. The abdominal wall tightening of a tummy tuck can be limited by large amounts of intra-abdominal fat.

Liposuction is terrific for body contouring when you have some isolated pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet or exercise. What lipo won’t do, however, is resolve any problems with visible skin laxity.

A tummy tuck can address both problems at the same time, because it removes excess skin along with eliminating excess fatty tissue.

Liposuction will remove fat, and how much your skin shrinks down to match depends on the quality and characteristics of your skin. Men tend to have less stretch marks and damaged skin in this area unless they have undergone massive weight loss.(Women tend to have these characteristics following pregnancy.)

If you do have excess loose skin or poor quality skin, then you may need an incision or full tummy tuck to get rid of the skin.

If you want to remove the excess skin, you will require a tummy tuck with the scars concealed below a swimsuit. Although we are always concerned with the risk of a blood clot (deep venous thrombosis or DVT which can lead to a pulmonary embolus or PE), these risks are extremely small, and probably even much lower in someone such as you who does not need a fascial/muscle tightening at the time of tummy tuck. This fascial/muscle tightening is usually needed in someone who has undergone stretching from pregnancy.
