Manhattan Male Tummy Tuck: Is It For You?
by Dr. Steven Wallach
According to the most recent statistics, male cosmetic procedures accounted for 10 percent of the total plastic surgeries done in 2012. Liposuction topped the male cosmetic surgeries, and sometimes a tummy tuck accompanies liposuction. Here at our New York plastic surgery practice, men may choose to have a tummy tuck for a tighter and toned midsection.
Male abdominoplasty is ideal for men who
- recently had a massive weight loss
- have difficulties toning their abdominal area despite diet restrictions and physical activity efforts
- have more subcutaneous fat (fat stored beneath the skin) rather than abdominal fat (fat stored around the intestines)
Dr. Wallach would like to emphasize that tummy tucks are not a replacement for diet and exercise when it comes to achieving a sculpted midsection. A body contouring procedure is the perfect “finishing touch” for males who have greatly reduced their body weight and are left with excess skin in the abdominal area.
Dr. Wallach is proficient in a wide array of tummy tuck techniques — from the traditional ones to the more advanced abdominoplasty techniques. Some men prefer to have liposuction first before a tummy tuck while some want to treat their love handles as well.
By and large, there are no major differences when it comes to recovery between males and females who just had a tummy tuck. One special consideration though is men tend to bleed more because their skin is thicker, which means they have a richer network of blood supply. Thus, men have greater risks of hematoma (formation of clots) following the procedure than women.

I’m so happy with the results from the Botox shots that Dr. Wallach performed on me. He spent a lot of time talking about the different fillers that would make my face look the most natural and youthful.
