The technique for tummy tuck surgery is similar in males vs. females. The difference lies in the localization of the scar. It is important to ensure the scar for you is below your bathing suit line. Photos are predominantly women but you can ask to see male photos if you like. As always, experience by your surgeon is important.Hope this helps.Dr. Ali Mosharrafa
Male tummy tuck - finding the right surgeon
- If your plastic surgeon is well-trained and thougtful, the skills are transferrable.
- Men are a little different - usually having less fat and often needing more done in the pubic area.
- You don't need a surgeon who specializes in men but one who has done two or more male tummy tucks and/or body lifts.
- If you have has major weight loss (50+ pounds), your surgeon should do body lifts as well as tummy tucks to give you the best advice.
