What is a Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) for Men?

A male tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that reshapes and tightens loose abdominal skin, fat, and muscles due to weight loss.  It is not a weight loss procedure and is not designed to treat obesity or large belly due to obesity.
 
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A MALE TUMMY TUCK?
 
A male tummy tuck can dramatically change the appearance and function of your abdominal area by:
  • Removing loose skin of the lower abdomen to create a tight smooth abdomen.
  • Removing excess fat of the abdominal area along with the loose skin.
  • Tightening weak abdominal muscles to strengthen and tone the abs.
  • Improving and revealing your underlying ab muscles for a more toned look.
 
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MALE TUMMY TUCK AND A FEMALE TUMMY TUCK?
 
  • We use similar techniques but with special considerations made for male anatomy.
  • Most tummy tucks in females correct changes due to pregnancy, while in males, they correct changes due to weight loss.
  • The incision for male tummy tucks is usually straighter and shorter than in females.
  • Females tummy tucks usually repair a separation of muscles due to pregnancy, whereas males usually do not need muscle repair.
  • Males tend to have more “visceral” belly fat, which can’t be corrected with Tummy Tucks. In these cases, weight loss may necessary before the procedure.
  • Males also carry more muscle mass, so the BMI cut-off may be higher than it is for females.
 
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A MALE TUMMY TUCK?
 
If you are considering a male tummy tuck, then you may be a good candidate if:
  •  You have loose skin and fat in your lower abdominal area.
  • You have had significant weight fluctuations or major weight loss resulting in a loose abdominal area.
  • You have weak abdominal muscles as a result of weight loss.
  • You are in general good health and are at or near your ideal body weight.
  • You are a non-smoker and have no pre-existing conditions that would prevent you from having a major surgery.
 
HOW IS A MALE TUMMY TUCK DONE?
 
A male tummy tuck is a surgical procedure in which your surgeon will remove excess loose skin and fat of your lower abdominal area.  You will have a low horizontal incision that can extend from hip to hip and hidden below your belt-line.  During the surgery, your surgeon will repair your abdominal muscles if necessary. The skin is stretched to create a flatter abdomen and your belly button is reconstructed.
 
WHAT KIND OF ANESTHESIA IS USED FOR A MALE TUMMY TUCK?
 
A male tummy tuck is usually an outpatient procedure and best done under general anesthesia.  This is for your comfort and safety since the surgery can take 2-4 hours to perform.  You will not experience any pain or have any memory of the surgery.  No one in our practice has woken during their tummy tuck.  Your anesthesia will wear off soon after the procedure.  You can expect to be in our recovery room for 1-2 hours afterwards and discharged same day to recover at home. 
 
WILL I HAVE DRAINS AFTER A MALE TUMMY TUCK?
 
Yes, drains are usually used after a tummy tuck to prevent extra fluid build-up during the first few days of recovery. We give you instructions to care for and empty drains at home.  Most patients have their drains removed 3-5 days after surgery at their 1st post-op visit.
 
WILL A MALE TUMMY TUCK HURT?
 
You may feel some discomfort after a tummy tuck, but most of our patients are able to manage with prescription pain medication Your surgeon at XSculpt® will also use Exparel® which is a long-acting numbing medicine that can last 3 days.  Most patients are off prescription pain medication after a few days.
 
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY AFTER A MALE TUMMY TUCK?
 
Recovery after a male tummy tuck can vary for each individual but here is a basic guideline:
  •  1 – 3 days – you will be moving slowly and may need some help at home.  You should not be confined to bed, but your physical activity and mobility may be limited. You will be taking prescription pain medication and emptying and monitoring your drains.
  • 1 week – your drains are out and you should be able to walk around and perform most daily functions without help.  You should be off prescription pain medication.
  • 2 weeks– you can usually return to work at this point as long as your job does not require too much movement or physical exertion.
  • 6 weeks– you can resume light exercise such as swimming or walking. You will still have limitations and full activity may take up to 8 weeks.
  • 3 months – by your 3-month follow up you should be at full activity and scars are fully healed but may be red or pink in color.
  • 6 months – you should see your final results! Your scar will be softer, lighter and the sensation back to normal.
  • 1 year – Your scar will be lighter and in some cases be barely visible. You should have no discomfort with any activity.
