Why Are Men Having Tummy Tucks?

Men have now increased their stake in cosmetic surgery within Australia. When I started performing cosmetic surgery 25 years ago, men made up a real minority of patients having treatment. In those days, the only treatment men would have was for acne scars. Interestingly, more men in my opinion were having hair transplant surgery which I found has become less common.

What Procedures Are Men Having Today?

Men commonly have man boob reduction which is for gynecomastia. This is one of the most common procedures that we perform and gives men new confidence to take their top off at the beach or to wear tighter singlets. Men also present for liposuction to remove excess fat and stubborn fat deposits. One of the most fascinating procedures that have developed over the last few years is high-definition liposuction. This is where we contour and reshape the fat overlying the muscles to produce a four or six-pack appearance. The other procedure that men commonly have is a mini facelift surgical procedure. Many middle-aged and older men also want to look rejuvenated, and they like the mini facelift as it does not give a startling appearance and tends to be a natural type of lift.

Why Are Men Having Tummy Tucks?

Men are having tummy tuck surgery also known as abdominoplasty surgery for excess skin as well as loose skin. This gives the midsection a more body contour look. Often this is related to massive weight loss or extreme weight fluctuations. With the advent of lap banding, many men lose a lot of weight and the skin needs to be removed. Some men lose significant weight naturally, but the result, unfortunately, can be sagging skin of the lower stomach.

    How Do I Know If I Need a Tummy Tuck?

    This is an assessment that Dr Lanzer needs to make to determine if the individual is a good candidate for the male tummy tuck procedure. He offers a free no-obligation consultation where you can get all your questions answered on topics such as the procedure process, recovery process, medicare rebates, or the use general anaesthesia. He can do this over the internet or telephone, but it is always better if he can actually have you lie down and feel your skin. Whilst lying down, Dr Lanzer will get you to lift your head up off the pillow. This will show any weakness of the underlying muscles.

    What Else Do I Need to Know About Male Tummy Tuck?

    Does The Tummy Tuck Go Through The Lining Of The Tummy?

    Does The Tummy Tuck Go Through The Lining Of The Tummy?

    No. The layers of the stomach are skin, dermis, fat, outer abdominal muscles, abdominal wall, the lining of the stomach wall, and the stomach itself. The lipo tuck only works on the outer layers beyond and in the stomach muscles. This means that there is very little danger or perforation of the bowels.

    What Happens If There Is A Hernia Of The Umbilicus?

    What Happens If There Is A Hernia Of The Umbilicus?

    Often with the tummy tuck surgery procedure, a hernia around the umbilicus is corrected. By suturing the muscles adjacent to the umbilicus we can usually improve that type of hernia. Some hernias of the umbilicus need more advanced treatment with mesh which is usually performed by general surgeons.

    Does A Man Need To Be Admitted To The Hospital?

    Does A Man Need To Be Admitted To The Hospital?

    No. We perform the lipo tummy tuck procedure as an outpatient in our Day Surgery Centre in Malvern, Victoria. The centre has the latest accreditation for the National Safety and Quality in Healthcare Standards (NSQHS). This means that every process and procedure in the entire centre is monitored, audited, and covered by appropriate policies and plans. The patient should avoid physical activities and strenuous activities such as heavy lifting after their release and may be required to wear a compression garment for the first weeks after the male abdominoplasty.

    Commonly Asked Questions About Male Tummy Tucks

    Yes. A lot of men have fat that collects under the stomach muscle. This is sometimes a common sign in men that gives a bloated appearance. Interestingly, it is felt that the fat under the muscle may be more related to heart disease. If the stomach muscle is split or stretched, then the man may require stomach muscle tightening at the same time as the tummy tuck.

    In both men and women, we try and make the scar as low as possible so that it can be hidden by the underpants or bikini. However, it's important to maintain realistic expectations as sometimes this is not possible, depending on the balance of where the loose skin is in relationship to the belly button.

    The most interesting tummy tuck that I have performed was a man who was 320 kilos in weight and lost 200 kilos over a 2-year period. His fascinating course was followed by the television program, A Current Affairs. In the last few weeks, I performed a lipo tummy tuck where we removed almost 1 meter of skin and fat from his lower abdomen. This gave him a flatter appearance which he was certainly happy about. At the same time, I did perform liposuction of his neck and stem cell fat injection into his cheeks. We always warn that one cannot judge results by an individual case, but this was certainly an interesting case for me to be involved in.
