Abdominoplasty for Men
Shape and Trim Your Abs with a Abdominoplasty
One of the more troublesome areas that Dr. Weiss treats in men is the abdomen. As a prominent tummy tuck specialist in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, he frequently performs tummy tucks for men. Tummy tuck surgery is also called abdominoplasty, and is used to remove hanging skin and to tone up the midsection. This procedure is frequently done along with liposuction to get the best result.
Tummy Tuck Procedure by Dr. Eric Weiss
Dr. Weiss begins your initial consultation by reviewing before and after photos of other male abdominplasty patients, and will help you select the level of correction for you to achieve your desired look. All applicable costs will also be reviewed during this confidential appointment.
The incision for a standard tummy tuck goes from hip bone to hip bone, in a curve running very low, just above the pubic hair line. Excess skin is removed and pockets of remaining fat will be excised to ensure the final result is smooth. The underlying muscles are tightened with sutures and the incision is closed. The scar is more extensive than in the mini tummy tuck procedure, but it is concealed very well by clothing.
Patients are discharged 2 to 3 hours following surgery to complete their recovery in the comfort of their own home. Recovery varies with the extent of the procedure done. Patients are given full instructions on the recovery process during the preoperative visits. Generally patients should take a minimum of 2 weeks off from work if the job is mainly sedentary. For men with more strenuous jobs 6 weeks is more realistic.
