Plastic Surgery for Men in our Tummy Tuck NY Centers
Today, men are finding help in cosmetic procedures in growing numbers. Many patients find that after weight loss or simply in the aging process, the mid-section becomes a bit flabby. Loose skin can lead a man to hide his stomach, even if he has an otherwise healthy physique.
In our practices, we perform plastic surgery for men that are interested in reducing the size of a protruding belly. As male abdominoplasty is a procedure with several variations, the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team meets with each patient to evaluate the current situation and determine a tailor-made plan for the tummy tuck (or SmartLipo) procedure.
What Abdominoplasty Can Do For Patients
The tummy tuck procedure is designed to remove excess fat and skin from the abdominal area, ranging from the pubic area to above the belly button. During treatment by our tummy tuck Manhattan or Long Island surgeons, a man may also receive liposuction to eliminate fat pockets which have been hard to correct with diet and exercise alone.
Additionally, the tummy tuck procedure tightens abdominal muscles, restoring great contour to the male physique. In the end, this effective plastic surgery for men addresses multiple issues and gives the patient a younger, slimmer, healthier appearance.
Steps Involved in a Tummy Tuck
The first step in the male abdominoplasty procedure is to determine how you would like to look. If you have pictures of your ideal physique, bring them to your initial consultation. Through the initial discussion and evaluation, it can be determined if only a tummy tuck is needed, or if you may receive optimal results by addressing other surrounding areas as well. In many cases, the full tummy tuck (vs. the mini tummy tuck) is ideal for producing superior tightening and contouring.
What to Do About Excess Skin
It is important to understand that the tummy tuck procedure is designed to treat excess skin that has lost its elasticity. It is not considered a surgical correction for excess fat. Before scheduling a procedure, you will want to be at a healthy weight you are happy with.
If you are still in the process of losing excess weight, or are in the first year after gastric bypass or bariatric surgery, your best bet is to maintain your current path and plan your tummy tuck for when you have reached your ideal body weight.
After tummy tuck procedures, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine in order to fully enjoy the results. By keeping up with regular exercise, your muscles will stay taught and skin smooth and supple over the contours created during your male plastic surgery procedure.
