While there are fewer male than female cosmetic surgery patients, their numbers are growing. Between 2000 and 2007 there was nearly 50% increase in the number of men who had abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery. Men are as concerned about their health, fitness, and appearance as women, but tend to be less outspoken about it.
The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is one of the more common procedures men have done. The tummy tuck tightens and flattens the abdominal muscles, removes excess fat (liposuction) and trims away extra skin. It is basically the same procedure that women have been having done. Tummy tuck can be combined with other body contouring procedures to fully balance your physique.
There are several options to consider. If you just have a little extra skin and it’s all below the navel level, a mini-tummy tuck should do well. If you have loose skin above the navel as well, then a full or complete tummy tuck is in order. If you have love handles around the sides as well, an extended tummy tuck will get rid of the extra skin and fat there, as well. The result is a nice flat stomach taut skin and a more attractive physique.
Rather than guess which cosmetic surgeries will restore your fit and healthy look, contact Dr. Paul Angelchik to make an appointment for a personal consultation. Like so many others, you’ll find that he gives you the personal attention you deserve.
