You have excess skin in the lower abdominal area that can only be removed during a tummy tuck.. Looks like you are in great shape otherwise and would benefit from the procedure. Please see a plastic surgeon who can examine you and give you all your options.
Thank you for your question and photo! You would be a great candidate for a male tummy tuck! I advise you to seek a board certified plastic surgeon who preforms these routinely! Best of luck!

Hello and thank you
for your question.
amount of exercise will flatten out your stomach because of the excess skin
that you have which has lost its elasticity. The only way to get rid of that is
by excising it surgically. I recommend that you see a board certified
plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions
which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is
Best of Luck to you!
Based on your photo, it seems like you have lost a lot of weight. Congratulations on your weight loss! As you have experienced, losing weight and exercising do not eliminate excess skin. You would look great with tummy tuck. Please vist with board-certified plastic surgeon who will inform you about benefits, limitations, and possible short and long-term complications of the surgery. Best wishes.
it depends on what you mean by flatter. You have a flat abdomen at the present time, although you have some loose skin. If removing that skin will give you what you are calling a flatter stomach, then yes, you are a candidate.
Loose skin despite exercise
It would appear that you have some loose skin that can be removed with a limited tummy tuck
First of all, it is clear that you have lost a significant amount of weight, so congratulations on that success! One of the unfortunate side effects of significant weight loss is that the excess skin becomes loose and tends to hang. Unfortunately there is no amount of exercise that can get rid of that skin so the only way to remove it is with a surgical procedure. In your case, since this excess skin is in your lower abdomen, the procedure of choice is exactly as you thought - a Tummy Tuck. If you want to get more information about exactly what you need then see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for a formal consultation.
Thank you for your photos. It
appears that you have lower abdominal skin laxity consistent with significant
weight loss.Congratulations on
your new body! However, skin
laxity is a persistent issue that is best addressed surgically. I would recommend an abdominoplasty –
the specifics of which will be slightly different for you – focusing on skin
removal to give you a tighter appearing abdomen. Many of our male patients requiring tummy tuck have mostly excess skin after weight loss. I recommend setting up an appointment with a board certified
plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in abdominal contouring in order
to get a personalized surgical plan. Good luck.
