When you think of tummy tucks, you probably don’t think of men having this procedure, but we’re here to tell you that tummy tucks are for men, too. In fact, nearly 5,000 men underwent a tummy tuck in 2017, according to statistics gathered by the American Society for Plastic Surgeons. Why are more men having tummy tucks? It’s simple: a flat, toned stomach is one of the most coveted physical features, and it’s not easy to achieve with diet and exercise. Even extreme dieting and hardcore workouts have left some of the most diligent men without the flat stomachs they want. Whether it is due to weight fluctuation, genetic predisposition or environmental factors, sometimes a flabby tummy is unchangeable with your own efforts. At Preminger Plastic Surgery, we want to help men become more self-confident and here’s how.
What does a male tummy tuck entail?
Specialists at Preminger Plastic Surgery want to ensure you that Dr. B. Aviva Preminger has a wealth of experience performing male plastic surgery as well as tummy tucks. Clinically known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck performed on men is not that different as the procedure performed on women. Tummy tucks are used to create a more classically masculine figure in a surgery where the excess skin and fat tissue are removed. Any muscles in the abdominal area, that may have weakened, will also be tightened. The end result is a flat, firmer, well-defined midsection.
Find out if a tummy tuck is right for you
Gender aside, patients considering a tummy tuck should have the same pre-qualifications: having good overall health and realistic expectations. Also, you should be close to your ideal body weight prior to the procedure. If you are a man that has loose or excessive abdominal skin or fatty tissues, then a tummy tuck might be for you. Abdominoplasty is used to change a protruded abdomen, not to remove a large amount of abdominal fat. However, if you’re interested in removing a significant amount of excess fat, liposuction may be performed to remove these troublesome areas, such as getting rid of love handles or shaping abs.
Along with already being close to your goal weight, all patients that plan on undergoing surgery are asked to quit smoking prior to the procedure. Smoking can complicate healing as well as the use of anesthesia. It’s also traditionally requested that you stop taking anti-inflammatory drugs for several weeks before the surgery. None of these requirement change based on gender. Dr. Preminger only wants the best for all of her clients, and these pre-requisites guarantee the healthiest and best results.
