A male tummy tuck can remove excess skin and underlying fat from the lower abdomen, tightening the waistline. Male abdominoplasty will remove the areas that seem unaffected by exercise and diet, or the result of significant weight loss, bringing you the flat stomach you desire.
While it is not widely known, it is quite common for the tummy tuck procedure to be performed on men due to excessive weight loss, just as it is on women. This is particularly pertinent in instances where a lap band or gastric sleeve procedure has taken place resulting in loose skin on the lower stomach. These scenarios can be rectified with abdominoplasty surgery.
The procedure itself is precisely the same as the procedure performed on women, even less complicated as men are unlikely to have any damaged muscle as a result of pregnancy like females can, although large abdominal girth from obesity can achieve the same effect in men as pregnancy in women.
Why should I consider tummy tuck abdominoplasty?
Much like the surgery for females, the aim of male abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery is to remove skin and excess fat from the middle and lower abdomen that may cause sagging. If you experience a bulge caused by excess skin, fat and loose abdominal muscles this procedure can offer a flatter and firmer abdomen.
Male abdominoplasty is a cosmetic procedure, but has a reconstructive element applicable to situations that require:
- A correction of structural defects of the abdomen
- Improved function of abdominal muscles
- Repair of an abdominal hernia
- Removal of the “pannus,” a collection of fat that can cause chronic dermatitis and skin infection, along with difficulty in walking and complications for hygiene. This procedure is known as an apronectomy.

Are you a good candidate?
If you have recently undergone surgery or have experienced significant weight loss, and diet and exercise are currently not producing results in your problem areas, a male tummy tuck may be right for you. A tummy tuck can tighten weak muscles, while also removing excess skin and fat, and in some cases the procedure has helped to improve posture as well.
The results of the procedure are long-lasting and the team at Breast and Body Clinic have the necessary surgical expertise to minimise potential complications and to achieve good aesthetic results.
It is not recommended that you undergo this procedure if:
- You are unable to have an anaesthetic due to allergies or for any other reasons
- You have bleeding tendencies or poor healing ability
- You are at a high risk of having surgical complications
- You are looking to lose weight
Further to the last point, abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss or exercise, nor is it the same as a liposuction procedure. The results of the procedure are technically permanent, however poor diet and little to no exercise will still result in weight gain to the areas included in the procedure.
You may be asked to consider delaying the procedure if you are in the process of losing weight or planning to.
You may be well suited to abdominoplasty surgery if:
- You are in good physical health with a stable weight
- You have realistic expectations of the outcome
- You are a non-smoker
- You have a stomach bulge that is affecting your confidence
