Tummy Tuck

Male Tummy Tuck in New Westminster, BC | MacDonald Plastic Surgery

Male abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men. It trims and improves the appearance of your abdominal region by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying (rectus) muscles to leave you with a more sculpted abdomen.

You are a good candidate for male abdominoplasty if you are at or close to a good body weight but have excess weight around your midsection that diet and exercise doesn’t diminish. You can also benefit from male abdominoplasty if you have excess or loose skin as a result of extreme weight loss.

Your Consultation

Your first step will be to have a detailed consultation with Dr MacDonald where she will listen to your goals and concerns and complete a careful examination. Then, Dr. MacDonald will discuss the treatment options that best address your concerns and particular situation.

  • Give you detail information about the surgery and what you can expect before, during, and after the procedure
  • Discuss any concerns or questions that you may have
  • Discuss potential risks of the procedure

What Can I Expect During Tummy Tuck Surgery and Recovery?

An abdominoplasty is a day surgery procedure, meaning you go home the same day. It requires a general anesthetic, so you need to complete a pre-operative questionnaire to ensure you are sufficiently healthy for surgery. You will be given instructions on what time to arrive and reminded not to eat or drink anything after midnight the night before surgery. The surgery is approximately 3 hours and recovery time is 3 hours, so plan to spend the day at the hospital. You will be given a prescription for pain medication and antibiotics before leaving the hospital.
