As we continue to try and improve our physical appearance with exercise and diet, we sometimes need a little bit of help from aesthetic surgery. Men are beginning to notice and appreciate what a tummy tuck can do for women and realize that the surgery can help them a great deal too.
Weight loss with concomitant excess skin requires not only excision of skin but also tightening of the abdominal wall. One can exercise in the gym 24/7 but tightening of the abdomen in horizontal(transverse) direction will not occur! Liposuction is always performed to give even a better waist along with the midline vertical tightening of the muscle layers. This does not interfere with the ability to exercise after.
The incisions can lie transversely along the supra pubic or vertically along the midline in the male abdominoplasty. The important feature in men is the corseting of abdomen to aide in the “six pack” look!
The results are always dependent on the body presentation at the time of the procedure.
