Male tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is becoming more prevalent among men. While tummy tuck is a common plastic surgery procedure for women after pregnancy, the idea of a man getting cosmetic surgery, especially a tummy tuck is a taboo. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery almost 5000 men had a tummy tuck in 2008.
Men get a tummy tuck for basically the same reason that women do- excess loose and hanging abdominal skin. The reason for men to develop excess abdominal skin and stretch marks is massive weight loss. With the advent of bariatric surgery (gastric bypass, lap band) men who used to be obese ar able to shed excess body weight. This leaves them with loose abdominal skin folds that are not only unsightly but also a nuisance which gets in the way of hygiene and exercise.
Men who are candidates for a tummy tuck usually have a High tension abdominoplasty or a body lift. Body lift is different from a tummy tuck in that it not only removes loose abdominal skin, but it also removes excess skin around the lower back, while lifting the sagging buttocks. Most men are not candidates for mini-abdominoplasty which is designed to remove only minimal skin in the lower abdomen.
