While many women undergo a tummy tuck procedure after pregnancy, this procedure can also benefit men as well! Today, more men are choosing to undergo this procedure, especially after significant weight loss. If you are a man with excess skin and fat on your lower abdomen, read on to learn more about how a tummy tuck can benefit you.
Are you a Candidate?
Men who are in good health and are at their ideal body weight are ideal candidates. It is also important that individuals have realistic expectations as to what this procedure can accomplish. For example, men with large amounts of intra-abdominal fat around their organs often do not see improvement of the midsection from a tummy tuck. The first step towards scheduling your tummy tuck procedure is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sabbagh, during which he can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
How is it Done?
There are different techniques that can be used to perform a tummy tuck surgery. A traditional tummy tuck involves tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin from the abdomen. At Straith Clinic, Dr. Sabbagh also performs the no drain tummy tuck, which eliminates the need for drains during recovery. During this technique, progressive tension sutures are used to close spaces where fluid could collect, and distributes the tension over the entire abdomen. The type of technique used during your tummy tuck procedure will be determined during your consultation.
