Sculpt the Waist and Abs with a Male Tummy Tuck
As people age, many begin to fight the “battle of the bulge.” These patients often have unwanted fat and loose skin in the abdominal region. The stomach is the most common problem area for both men and women; it tends to hold onto fat reserves and be resistant to strenuous diet and exercise. A tummy tuck can tighten and tone the abdominal area so that patients can get the figure they desire. A male tummy tuck helps our Minneapolis patients achieve a slimmer and more muscular midsection.
Males make up a large percentage of our patients who wish to undergo a tummy tuck procedure. This is because men are just as likely as women to notice an increase of stomach fat and a loss of skin elasticity as they age. A tummy tuck can address these concerns to give men a more toned and muscular midsection. Good candidates for a male tummy tuck are those with loose abdominal skin, weakened or damaged abdominal muscles, and a protruding stomach. To be a good candidate for this procedure, patients must be in good overall health and be able to undergo surgery without any increased risk of complications.
A tummy tuck is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under the effects of general anesthesia. A traditional tummy tuck requires an incision that extends across the stomach, from one hipbone to the other. While scarring is inevitable, Dr. Mesna will make this incision low enough that it should be easily concealed under boxers or swim trunks. This incision allows Dr. Mesna to improve the appearance of the entire abdominal section (including the areas above and below the belly button). If muscles are weak, Dr. Mesna will stitch abdominal muscles closer together. This will address weakness and give the muscles a more toned appearance. Excess fat and tissue will be removed before re-draping the skin so that it rests smoothly and tightly. The incision will then be closed and patients will begin their road to recovery. A traditional tummy tuck can significantly flatten and tone the stomach area to give men a tighter and more masculine appearance.
Men whose problem area extends beyond the stomach may wish to consider an extended tummy tuck. An extended tummy tuck uses a longer incision that reaches around each hipbone. This procedure may be ideal for men who are concerned with the appearance of love handles or lower back fat. Dr. Mesna would be happy to discuss this procedure in further detail with those he feels may benefit from more extensive treatment.
