Tummy Tuck for Men

bodySCULPT®’s tummy tuck for men in NYC is the right solution to consider if you are looking to achieve a trim, tight, and aesthetically attractive abdominal contour, and a more toned, masculine appearance. Our plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, New York City provides effective procedures, including male tummy tuck and abdominoplasty for males, to improve and streamline the shape of the abdomen, helping men achieve their dream body quickly and safely*.

Whether it’s due to weight loss, aging, or other factors, excess abdominal skin can undermine your confidence. Our expert surgeons specialize in providing you with a rejuvenated appearance that aligns with your masculine identity.

Male Tummy Tuck Options to Suit Varying Needs

Complete tummy tuck: This method involves a pair of incisions – the first extending across the lower abdomen from hip to hip, and the second encircling the belly button. Excess fat and skin are meticulously eliminated, while muscle tightening creates a more taut and well-defined abdominal region. The procedure provides natural-looking results for male candidates.

Partial abdominoplasty or mini tummy tuck: This technique is typically recommended when there’s minimal need for skin removal and no substantial protrusion of the abdominal muscles. Unlike a full procedure, the navel remains in its original position. Recovery is swifter compared to a full abdominoplasty, allowing you to resume normal activities sooner.

Liposuction-only abdominoplasty: For younger male individuals boasting supple skin and moderate fat deposits, a liposuction-centric approach could be appropriate. This method contributes to male stomach tightening, especially when supported by well-maintained abdominal muscle tone.

Brazilian Tummy Tuck in NYC

Our surgeons are skilled in performing Brazilian tummy tuck in NYC, which is a combination of liposuction and abdominoplasty. The procedure can significantly reshape the abdomen and central torso.

Use of Advanced Liposuction Techniques

At bodySCULPT®, we use advanced, minimally invasive technologies to perform abdominal liposuction and male tummy tuck procedures:

BodyTite™: This modality features patented RFAL (radio-frequency assisted liposuction) technology for effective body sculpting, including male abdominal contouring. It eliminates fat and tightens the skin without affecting the surrounding tissues.

Smartlipo Triplex: Cynosure’s workstation eliminates fat and tightens the skin using a triple laser-enabled cannula. Its intelligent delivery systems control energy delivery and prevent overheating. Our plastic surgeons use this innovative platform for six-pack abdominal laser etching.

VASERlipo: Superior ultrasound technology precisely targets and removes superficial, deep fat around the abdominal muscle groups for an athletic appearance, catering to male tummy tuck and male abdominal contouring needs.

If desired, we can combine tummy tuck for men with liposuction of the lower back and waist to produce beautiful aesthetic results and minimize tummy tuck scars in men.

Our surgeons also perform non-invasive abdominal contouring using the latest techniques such as InMode Evolve and Body FX.

Benefits of Tummy Tuck Surgery For Men

  • Effective fat reduction and body reshaping
  • Advanced techniques
  • Reduced downtime
  • Minimal surgical trauma
  • Less side effects and complications

Am I the right candidate for the procedure?

The right candidates are men in good overall health, who maintain a stable weight, and have realistic expectations. The procedure is particularly beneficial for those who have loose or sagging abdominal skin that hasn’t responded well to diet and exercise.

What is the recovery process like?

Recovery varies from person to person, but most men can expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising for the first few weeks. A compression garment is usually worn to aid in healing. Most patients can return to non-strenuous activities within a couple of weeks, while full recovery may take several months.

Are the results permanent?

The results of a tummy tuck can be long-lasting, if the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle. Weight fluctuations and significant changes in fitness habits can affect the outcome over time.


We use the ON-Q PainBuster® pain relief system to help you recover faster after tummy tuck surgery, ensuring your male tummy tuck recovery is comfortable. The balloon-like pump is filled with a local anesthetic which is delivered to the surgical site continuously for up to 5 days, providing considerable pain relief. This pain relief system ensures:

  • Faster, smoother recovery for male tummy tuck
  • Increased mobility during the recovery phase
  • Quicker return to normal activity after male abdominal contouring
  • Less side effects and complications, prioritizing the well-being of men undergoing tummy tuck
