Abdominoplasty for Men

Abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin and tightens the muscles in the abdomen, often reconnecting separated or weakened muscles. The result is a smoother and firmer stomach.

Candidates for an Abdominoplasty

Diet and exercise are often not enough to strengthen and flatten the abdomen, especially after a substantial weight change. This is also true for patients with normal body weight. If you are experiencing a loose and sagging mid-section that has proven resistant to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for an abdominoplasty. Patients should be in good general health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about surgery. This procedure is not recommended for any patient planning significant weight loss.

The Procedure

During surgery, Dr. Nima will make a horizontal incision between the pubic hairline and belly button. The skin is lifted, weakened abdominal muscles are tightened and toned, and any excess skin is trimmed. If fat deposits and excess skin are limited to the area below the belly button, you may be a candidate for a less intense procedure called a mini-tummy tuck.

The Recovery

Patients typically return to work 1-2 weeks after surgery. In this time, swelling should subside and patients should be standing up and walking normally again. Results are visible immediately but will continue to improve for several weeks to months after surgery. The result is a more firm, toned abdomen.
