While tummy tucks are often thought of as a procedure for women, the amount of men going to see a plastic surgeon for this service is on the rise.

For example, if you’re a man who recently lost a good deal of weight, chances are you have some excess skin hanging around your midsection. That issue can be addressed with a tummy tuck procedure – or, as it’s formally referred to, an abdominoplasty.

Men may also need a tummy tuck due to other issues as well, such as aging or other types of surgery. However, it’s important to remember that a tummy tuck isn’t a substitute for eating right and exercising.

What will a tummy tuck do? Aside from getting rid of excess skin around the midsection, it is to help men achieve that flat, toned abdomen they’ve been working hard for. Some men, no matter how rigorous their diet or exercise regimen, just can’t get their bodies to cooperate. In these instances, a tummy tuck is the perfect procedure to undergo.

It typically takes between three to seven hours, depending on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. Sometimes an overnight stay may be required, but most patients return home to recover.
