In recent years, a growing number of men are choosing to undergo plastic surgery procedures. In particular, the demand for male tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) is increasing nationwide, partly because more men are taking advantage of weight loss surgery, which can leave them with excess skin and loose abdominal muscles.
If you are looking to get rid of flab in your abdomen, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lefkovits. He can analyze the fat content and degree of loose skin in your abdomen and review your medical history to determine whether or not a tummy tuck would be right for you. Ideal male tummy tuck candidates are close to their ideal body weight.
You may not be a good candidate for a male tummy tuck if you have a large amount of intra-abdominal fat – i.e. the fat located around your intestines and beneath your abdominal muscles. This type of fat can’t be corrected by a tummy tuck or a liposuction procedure.
