Preparing for Male Tummy Tuck Surgery

Share Button

Male Tummy Tuck SurgeryRigorous dieting and exercise may help you reduce weight, but it most likely wouldn’t help in contouring your body. Plastic surgery is the best option for men who want to get rid of stubborn abdominal fat and achieve a trimmer mid-section, though it is not an alternative to weight loss. Male tummy tuck surgery is available in AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practices in Manhattan, NYC. Choosing a practice with surgeons who are experts in the treatment can provide optimal outcomes for the right candidate.

Excessive weight loss, aging and other factors may cause the male abdomen wall to lose elasticity and shape. Male tummy tuck surgery or abdominoplasty trims the area, while strengthening the muscles and tightening the skin around that area. The procedure involves removing excess fat and skin from the midsection and tightening the muscles to result in an attractive abdominal contour. To be a good candidate for the treatment, you should be in good physical health, have a stable weight and realistic expectations.

Abdominoplasty – Pre-operative Preparation

Here are the things that you should know about when preparing for tummy tuck surgery:

  • Get a medical evaluation and recommended lab tests.
  • Quit smoking to reduce risk of complications and help smooth healing.
  • Avoid taking aspirin, herbal supplements and other certain anti-inflammatory drugs as these can increase bleeding.
  • Prepare yourself by informing your family and see how they can help you.
  • If you are planning to lose weight, then you should do it prior to the surgery, not after.
  • Be prepared to take at least 2 weeks off from work after the procedure.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you to and from the doctor’s office.
  • Keep medications, dressings and other essentials ready to use when you get home.

This surgery is a highly individualized procedure and with an experienced Manhattan plastic surgeon you can expect optimal results.

The final result of the surgery may be initially masked by swelling and bruising and you may be unable to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete. Make sure to keep your follow ups with your surgeon after the procedure.

Having your tummy tuck performed by experienced plastic surgeon in an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, New York City is important for your safety and the best results.
