Good job on the weight loss.  By the pictures, it appears you do have some loose skin of the lower abdominal area.  The question I have is about the type of tummy tuck.  Are you having muscles tightened?  Is your surgeon cutting around the belly button in order to tighten upper and lower skin?  Or just removing lower skin only?

Hi. Congratulations on your weight loss. That's quite an achievement. Will you have good results? The better question should be............Am I a good candidate? You are an excellent candidate and the results will depend on your surgeon's expertise and your expectaions. Good luck

Results after tummy tuck surgery

Most male patients are quite happy with the final results of their tummy tuck surgery.  It does take several months for the final result to be apparent because there can be intermittent swelling.

I agree with the other plastic surgeons. You are an excellent candidate and at age 24 should have sufficient skin elasticity to get a great result. Good luck, and congratulations on the weight loss.

Male Tummy Tuck: Excellent After Big Weight Loss

Congratulations on your success at loosing excess weight.  Your doctor's advice allows you to have much more improvement that if surgery were done without the weight loss.  The possible benefit of tummy tuck surgery for you is removal of loose skin and lower under-skin fat.  If there is also loose abdominal wall musculature, he or she can help that as well.  I suspect you will be an excellent candidate.
