Who Performs Tummy Tucks for Men in Phoenix?

Seek a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Phoenix
Your #tuck procedure should always be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Seeking the right doctor and gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
If deemed a candidate, a #drainless tummy tuck with or without #liposuction may be something to consider. Over the years, surgeons have improved procedures and found ways to eliminate the need for #drains commonly used in a #tummy #tuck or #abdominoplasty, and a variety of other operations. I have found that most of my patients do very well with the exception of those have large areas of #liposuction or lipo-abdominoplasty. Any extra fluid may be reabsorbed back into the body without the use of drains. I may use drains on a case by case basis for these patients. If you go to a plastic #surgeon who uses drains, or if your situation requires drains, they usually stay in 3-5 days but may be required to remain in longer. The use of tissue #glue is to adhere the abdominal #skin to the #muscle. It is a new option and alternative to sutures in a tummy tuck.

Thank you for your question.
The majority of the board certified plastic surgeons in Phoenix/Scottsdale that offer abdominoplasty or tummy tuck surgery do so for both men and women. Below are some of the more important factors to consider when making your decision:
1) make sure your plastic surgeon is board certified (ABPS)
2) your plastic surgeon should perform tummy tuck surgery regularly.
3) look at the plastic surgeons before and after photos for tummy tuck.
4) look at your plastic surgeons reviews
5) choose the appropriate incision length for the contour and goal that you desire. That is, do not choose a smaller incision if it will correct less of your tissue laxity.
6) liposuction should and is almost always indicated at the same time as your tummy tuck surgery.
All the best,
Dr Remus Repta
