More Men Are Getting Tummy Tucks—Here’s What You Need to Know!

Each year, more men are choosing plastic surgery to enhance, sculpt, and define their physiques. One of the most popular body contouring procedures for men is tummy tuck surgery.

A tummy tuck 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 and increased confidence. And, with more confidence, you can experience a better quality of life.

At MacDonald Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jeannie MacDonald can help you determine if a tummy tuck will suit your needs.

What Does a Tummy Tuck Do?

Fundamentally, a tummy tuck surgery behaves the same for men and women—the procedure eliminates excess skin, tightens and repairs stretched-out muscles, and may include liposuction to sculpt and define the abdomen. However, a tummy tuck for men considers the unique aspects of the male physique and the goals of each patient.

Following a tummy tuck procedure, most men notice a boost in self-confidence. This increased self-esteem and self-image often result in more success at work, enriched personal relationships, motivation to live a healthy lifestyle, and more. As well as boosting your self-confidence, here are a few benefits tummy tucks offer.

Tighten loose skin: Weight loss, aging, or other issues may cause abdominal skin to lose elasticity and loosen. Tummy tucks remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin for a firmer tone.

Following significant weight loss, loose and hanging skin may hinder your ability to enjoy the results of your hard work. Dr. MacDonald may suggest a full, mini, or fleur-de-lis tummy tuck, depending on the degree of extra skin. 

Weight Loss Maintenance: Men who have experienced significant weight loss tend to sustain their results when they also have a tummy tuck, especially bariatric patients who have had gastric bypass surgeries. Men who have tummy tucks tend to have an increased capability of performing exercises and other physical activities.

Eliminate Stubborn Fat: For many men wrestling with loose skin on the abdomen, some stubborn, exercise-resistant fat remains. To address this issue, Dr. MacDonald often combines liposuction with a tummy tuck to remove the stubborn fat, further enhancing your new trimmer waistline.

Define Muscles: The ultimate abdominal goal of many men is a six-pack. By tightening loose skin, removing excess fat, and exaggerating the definition between ab muscles, a tummy tuck with ab etching can often provide the detailed body contouring transformation many men want.

Are You a Vancouver Tummy Tuck Candidate?

Candidates are men in good health with realistic expectations. Typically, Dr. MacDonald suggests that the best candidates for tummy tucks should:

  • Be living a healthy lifestyle
  • Be non-smokers or willing to quit prior to surgery
  • Be bothered by the appearance of their abdomen
  • Understand the risks of the surgery
