Tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty for Men in Los Angeles


Have you ever heard of a man getting a tummy tuck! Isn’t a tummy tuck for women who have had multiple pregnancies? Then, why would a man get a tummy tuck in Los Angeles?

Male tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is not such an uncommon plastic surgery procedure in Beverly Hills as you might think! Los Angeles men who have lost massive weight either by  dieting or with Bariatric Surgery are often left with unsightly hanging abdominal flab. These Southern California men who seek an abdominoplasty don’t get a tummy tuck because of vanity, but in order to look normal, wear cloths comfortably, and in order to be able to live active lives.

After Gastric bypass or lap band surgery, men who have lost more than 60 lbs of weight are often left with a hanging pannus.  Besides being unattractive it poses a hindrance to exercise, as well as a man’s ability to wear normal cloths.

There are several body contouring procedures who help men regain their normal physic after massive weight loss. High Tension Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty for men not only removes excess abdominal skin, but also tightens the abdominal muscles. For men who also have sagging of the thighs or buttocks a body lift surgery is more appropriate. In Los Angeles, a body lift which is also called a lower body lift is a combination of a tummy tuck and a buttock lift or lower body lift.  While the tummy tuck portion of the body lift, removes the excess skin of the abdomen and tightens its muscles, the buttock lift portion, lifts the buttocks and removes the excess skin of the lower back and flanks.

A tummy tuck for men varies from that for women, in that the emphasis is not to make the body look curvy and feminine. The scars are also placed very low so that they don’t show in a bathing suit.
