The plastic surgery realm is not just for the ladies, as an increasing number of men are paying extra attention to their physical appearance. The male tummy tuck may initially seem like a surprising phenomenon, but as you’ll see below, there are a number of very good reasons for men to consider getting abdominoplasty.
Repairing Abdominal Muscle Separation
Diastasis recti, or abdominal muscle separation, occurs when there is too much space between the left and right stomach muscles. The result is a gap down the center of the midsection and it causes the belly to stick out.
A tummy tuck can close the gap and firm up your midsection.
Although perhaps most common in pregnant women, diastasis recti can also happen to men due to weight lifting or from rapid weight gain. While it isn’t necessarily a serious medical problem, it can cause issues with self-esteem.
Handling Excess Weight Loss
Rapid weight loss, even when achieved in the right way, can result in unsightly loose skin around the stomach. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and allows men to proudly show off their weight loss success.
The modern male cares about his appearance, which has led to an increase in the number of men that diet and exercise. However, it can be frustrating to have a soft midsection after working so hard. A drain-free tummy tuck combines liposuction with abdominoplasty to give you superior contours, helping you tone up and feel more confident.
