Male Tummy Tuck

Achieving a flat and toned stomach can be challenging, even with consistent diet and exercise. Factors like aging, genetics, weight fluctuations, or weakened muscles can affect your abdominal appearance. Enhance your body image and confidence with a male tummy tuck at Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery.

What Is A Male Tummy Tuck?

A male tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area to create a firmer, more toned midsection. This procedure is often sought by men who have experienced significant weight loss, leading to loose skin or those who have stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise.

In addition to removing excess skin and fat, the surgery may involve tightening the underlying abdominal muscles to improve the overall contour and appearance of the abdomen. The goal is to enhance the patient’s body profile, boost confidence, and provide a more aesthetically pleasing abdominal area.

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Male Tummy Tuck?

A tummy tuck can benefit a variety of patients. You might be a good candidate if you:

  • Are in generally good health
  • Are at a stable weight
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Are a nonsmoker
  • Are you bothered by the appearance of your abdomen
  • Struggle with weakened abdominal muscles

If you’re unsure about your eligibility, schedule a consultation with Dr. Andrews to discuss your goals and determine if a tummy tuck is right for you.

The Male Tummy Tuck Procedure

Your tummy tuck procedure begins with anesthesia for your comfort. Dr. Andrews will make a horizontal incision between the pubic bone and the belly button; the length and shape of the incision depend on the amount of excess skin needed to be removed.

Once the abdominal skin is lifted, weakened or separated muscles are repaired and strengthened. If necessary, an additional incision may be made to remove excess skin from the upper abdomen. The upper abdominal skin is then pulled down, and the excess is trimmed.

A new opening for the belly button will be created and sutured into position. Finally, all incisions are closed with sutures or skin adhesives, and you will be moved to the recovery room to begin healing.


During recovery, bandages will be applied to your incisions, and a compression garment will help reduce swelling and support your abdomen. A small drain may be placed under the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid.

Before you leave, Dr. Andrews will provide detailed instructions on caring for your incisions and drains, medication management, and activity restrictions. You’ll also schedule a follow-up appointment.

You will need to wear the compression garment for about six weeks, during which time rest is crucial. You should avoid activities that strain your incisions. While some results will be visible immediately, final results will take three to four months to appear.
