A toned, flat stomach is a covetable feature for many men. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to attain through diet and exercise alone.
With a male tummy tuck, it’s possible to win the fight against a flabby midsection and achieve your body goals.
The male tummy tuck focuses on contouring the midsection and enhancing the underlying abdominal muscles. The ultimate goal is to create a fit and athletic figure that you’re proud to show off.
When done correctly, the procedure can:
The tummy tuck is a terrific procedure for many of our male clients. Most men request the surgery after losing a substantial amount of weight or due to natural, age-related changes to the body.
In general, the ideal candidate is:
There are three tummy tuck surgical techniques for our male clients to choose from: the mini, standard and extended. Here’s a closer look at the options:
The least intensive version of the procedures, the mini tummy tuck for men exclusively involves contouring the area directly beneath the belly button. Through a small incision discreetly placed along the pubic bone, our surgeons can reshape the tissue and remove unwanted fat on the lower abdomen. However, underlying muscles cannot be addressed with this approach.
The standard tummy tuck is our most popular option. It involves an incision that extends from hip to hip. Through that opening, we can remove excess skin and unwanted fat, as well as tighten the underlying abdominal muscles. This technique delivers a dramatic transformation and can improve the appearance of the entire abdomen. If necessary, we can also reposition the navel through a small additional incision around the belly button.
The extended tummy tuck in San Diego requires a hip-to-hip incision that extends around the flanks. Through that extensive opening, we can remove unwanted fat and trim away excess skin from the entire midsection – including the love handles. This approach also allows us to tighten the underlying muscles and reposition the belly button. The extended tummy tuck tends to be ideal for men who want a comprehensive aesthetic improvement.
We customize all of our procedures – and the male tummy tuck is no different. In addition to the surgical steps outlined above, we may also recommend liposuction.
This allows us to refine your contouring results and sculpt the defined and athletic abdomen you desire.
A tummy tuck that is specially designed for the male body is one of the best ways to achieve your ideal physique when diet and exercise aren’t enough. To begin planning your transformation, please contact our Del Mar or Coronado office today and schedule a consultation.
