Tummy Tuck Solutions

As many men age, they find it increasingly difficult to achieve their ideal body shape, particularly in the stomach and abdomen. Even avid marathon runners develop fat deposits as they age, simply because our bodies store fat differently as we get older. At Florida Plastic Surgery Group, we believe a tummy tuck, or lipo-abdominoplasty, is the best way to address the combination of excess fat and skin in your abdominal and lower abdominal areas. The name “lipo-abdominoplasty” comes from a combination of abdominoplasty (the removal and tightening of excess skin of the abdomen) and liposuction. A tummy tuck is not intended as a method of weight loss but is designed to reduce fat deposits that remain stubbornly in place despite a healthy diet and exercise.

Tummy tuck procedure

Before you schedule your procedure, you will meet with one of our doctors to discuss your concerns and goals. You may also ask any questions you have. We will help determine if a tummy tuck is necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals or if liposuction alone will be sufficient for your needs.

If you decide that a tummy tuck is the right choice for you, your surgery will be scheduled. During your surgery, our doctors will first remove the excess fat from your abdomen and love handles using tumescent liposuction (liposuction using numbing fluid injected into your fat deposits). After liposuction, our doctors will contour and tighten your upper and lower abdomen.

Candidates for tummy tucks for men

Not every man is a candidate for a tummy tuck. In particular, severely overweight men or inactive men whose bodies would respond to exercise and diet should not rely on surgery to achieve what they can obtain through a healthy lifestyle. Men who find that diet and exercise alone are ineffective in reducing fat in certain parts of the abdomen may be excellent candidates for a tummy tuck.

Other ideal candidates for tummy tucks may include men who have:

  • Excess skin resulting from bariatric surgery
  • Excess skin due to weight loss
  • Stubborn fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise
  • Awkwardly placed excess fat and skin in the abdomen

Preparation for surgery

Although anyone undergoing plastic surgery should quit smoking cigarettes, marijuana or vaping at least four weeks beforehand, this is particularly important for a more invasive procedure such as a tummy tuck. Smoking restricts blood flow throughout the body, making it more difficult for your body to heal. You should quit smoking as soon as you decide to have plastic surgery in order to avoid complications and setbacks during your recovery period.
