I am a man in my early 20's, and i recently lost over 140 pounds over the course of about one and a half years. I did this through exercise and diet but unfortunately it left me with a lot of loose and lax skin in my abdomen. It used to hang over my pubic area and was really annoying because i am very active and involved in many sports and it limited my mobility somewhat. I felt that all the weight loss amounted to nothing because i will always have a permanent and awkward pouch of skin on my abdomen and i always avoided taking my shirt off and people never knew why. I have been researching tummy tucks for a while and waited about one year to make a decision to finally get a tummy tuck after informing myself of all the costs, risks, etc... At first i was hesitant in that i assumed it was only for women but after further research i found out guys can and do get tummy tucks as well, of course to fix loose skin from weight loss. I tried working out my abs non stop and they just got bigger and stronger, but after a certain point i realized that the skin was too stretched out to tighten given my small stature and large weight.
I eventually found Dr. Gervais while researching top surgeons in Minnesota, and after my first consultation i knew that he was going to be my surgeon. I don't regret it at all and i would recommend this procedure and Dr. Gervais to anybody looking for a tummy tuck. He is a true artist.
It changed my life like i could never imagined it would, i feel lighter and more confident, i can finally take my shirt off with confidence. There is no more saggy skin in my abdomen area and i know that once i am fully healed i will be able to play sports even better. The scar is pretty low and i can wear low rise jeans and it isn't noticeable at all. The recovery was excellent, it was much better than i perceived it to be. I had no pain at all thanks to taking my medications on time although of course, i did have minor discomfort but it was a cake walk and of course expected with any major surgery.
Overall i am extremely excited and happy and i don't know why i didn't do the procedure earlier.
