Tummy tuck surgery is actually quite common among men as well. For men, a male tummy tuck would be needed to correct loose skin and remove stretch marks that may appear with aging alone or because of weight loss. Since liposuction and muscle tightening is often performed at the same time, a male tummy tuck can allow the six pack muscles to show more, giving the entire abdomen and waist a more masculine, chiseled look.
About The Procedure
A male tummy tuck is designed to improve the shape and appearance of the abdomen and waist area. It is designed to reduce fat, tighten up muscles, and remove loose skin. The goal of a male tummy tuck is to create a masculine and athletic abdomen and waist area. The incisions for a male tummy tuck are comparable to that of a regular abdominoplasty. The other components of the procedure are designed, however, to create a more square and athletic waist as opposed to a more hour-glass shape that many women desire. Overall, the abdominal shape following a male tummy tuck should look as good and as natural as possible. An added benefit of a male tummy surgery is the strengthening of the abdominal wall. By doing so, it can leave you with results that appear more defined, firmer and smoother, culminating in an accentuated 6-pack along with an overall flatter abdominal appearance.

Male Tummy Tuck Recovery
As each male tummy tuck procedure is tailored to your unique body type, the recovery period will depend on such factors as, the length of the incisions, the degree of correction, one's age along with your health and fitness activity. Following your abdominoplasty, your abdomen will be wrapped in an elastic binder to minimize swelling and help provide stability. This binder must be worn consistently for the first four weeks. Recovery after a tummy tuck for men can vary depending on the type of procedure performed. In general, tummy tuck patients should expect to take at least 1 week away from work, often a second week is beneficial. Dr. Repta typically recommends resuming light activity such as walking as soon as possible to facilitate the healing process. That being said, you will need to avoid any arduous activity, in addition to any heavy lifting for approximately 6 weeks. More information can be found in the Anesthesia, Risks & Recovery section, or at Dr. Repta's tummy tuck recovery tips article.
The male tummy tuck procedure is performed as an outpatient surgery with patients going home shortly after the procedure.
