One of the toughest parts of a man’s body to remain toned is the abdomen and ‘love handle’ area, despite sit-ups and crunches. Genetic pre-disposition and age can make it difficult for anyone to stave off unyielding fat pockets and loose skin. Abdominoplasty, the medical term for tummy tuck surgery, is one of the most common male cosmetic body procedures performed by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Kole Plastic Surgery. Many male patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle through nutritious eating habits and regular exercise want a slimmer more sculpted midsection by getting rid of their extra fat and skin and surgically tightening their abs. The surgery performed under general anesthesia, allowing the patient to sleep, while fluids and medication are delivered through an IV tube. Surgery usually lasts for up to three hours, depending on the extent of work necessary to be done.
The general shape of the male body and places where fat pockets will accumulate are largely factored by genetics. Many patients find themselves relieved to learn that their mid-section and love handles can be addressed with a tummy tuck. There are young men in their twenties and thirties that are active and healthy with stubborn fat and body types that simply do not cooperate. It is not an accurate representation, of the true level of activity that a person engages in, or how young they feel or look, psychologically, chronologically and internally. This is the reason that male tummy tuck patients range in ages from 35—55 yrs old. It is just the opposite when a man ages, his skin loses part of the natural elasticity and experiences some slow weakening of the muscles. Aging can impact the mid-region creating new flab and sagging skin. At times, that loss of abdominal definition, a feeling of self-consciousness and loss of esteem may accompany the common emotions that go along with appearing older and less fit. In these cases, male tummy tuck patients have an overall rejuvenation effect on the entire body. By firming and slenderizing the abdominal and hip areas, male tummy tuck patients report their satisfaction in looking and feeling healthier, younger and more active.
It is normal to wonder about your post-op scarring. With any incisions, scarring is unavoidable, though Dr. Kole will strategically plan the location of your incisions prior to your procedure. This usually reduces the visibility of scars. When following Dr. Kole’s instructions, you will increase the chances of a smoother and quicker healing process for the incisions. Planning ahead involves discussion about the types of underwear, bathing suits, shorts and other clothing you like to wear. This helps to base the decision about different positions or altering certain incisions based upon your specific body type, surgical intensity, lifestyle preferences and your body type. Tummy tuck surgery for men performed by Dr. Edward Kole can provide you or your male partner some of the following:
- An improved and enhanced confidence
- Removal of excess skin
- Tighter abdominal muscles
