Tummy Tuck for Men
The tummy tuck for men, also known as male abdominoplasty, is a common procedure that can help you look more fit and trim by reducing the size of a protruding belly. Dr. Michael Eisemann of the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston has over thirty years experience in the field and is considered by many to be one of the top plastic surgeons in Texas. As there are many variations of the tummy tuck procedure for men, Dr. Eisemann tailors a procedure for each individual patient based on their needs and goals.
In the tummy tuck procedure, excess fat and skin is removed from the middle and lower abdomen and the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened. Large deposits of fat are eliminated and skin that won't respond to exercise or dieting is tightened. Loose skin from prior obesity, loss of muscle tone or aging can be drastically reduced, making one appear younger, healthier, and slimmer.
There are a variety of different techniques for the tummy tuck procedure. At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, tummy tucks can be combined with other body-contouring procedures such as liposuction, or performed at the same time with other elective surgeries. The most common procedures for men are the complete tummy tuck and the mini tummy tuck, also known as partial abdominoplasty. The complete tummy tuck is best suited for patients who seek to dramatically change the look and feel of their abdominal region. It is best suited for those who have weak muscles and an excess of loose skin in their abdomen. For those patients who have only a little extra abdominal skin, a mini tummy tuck is generally ideal. During initial consultations, Dr. Eisemann will help each patient choose the tummy tuck procedure that will meet their goals. It's important to note that the tummy tuck procedure is not a surgical treatment for overweight individuals who are intending to lose weight. Each patient must reach a stable weight prior to undergoing any type of body contouring surgery. The tummy tuck procedure is often performed a year or more after gastric bypass surgery.
Tummy tuck procedures are performed under general anesthesia in the fully accredited surgery suite at The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center or in a hospital (Dr. Eisemann has faculty appointments at all the major hospitals in Houston). After the tummy tuck surgery with Dr. Eisemann, patients are encouraged to exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet in order maintain a slimmer, tighter belly for years to come.
