Most men strive for a well-toned, flat abdomen but it may be hard to achieve simply with working out. Genetics and weight fluctuations play a major role in how the tummy appears. Another major factor can be long hours of commute to and from work, as well as a sedentary job. When these factors are combined, it can be difficult to get and maintain that sleek abdominal profile.
More and more men today are choosing to undergo cosmetic procedures to get their toned appearance. Abdominoplasty or the male tummy tuck procedure helps to eliminate the excess fat and skin from the abdomen as well as tighten the underlying weakened muscles so that you get a well defined and firm midsection. Dr. Wallach is specialized in tummy tuck surgery, and is able to offer men the personalized results they desire.
A tummy tuck is beneficial for a wide range of body types. You must be in good health and understand what is and what is not achievable with the procedure. You should be looking for correction of a protruding abdomen or want to remove excess fatty tissue and skin from the abdomen.
During your abdominoplasty consultation, Dr. Wallach will inform you about what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. If you are a smoker, you must stop smoking at least 2-4 weeks before and after your surgery. You should also avoid taking any anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin about 7-10 days before and after your procedure. This is important since these can increase bleeding and the risk of other complications. You will receive detailed instructions about caring for yourself both before and after your tummy tuck surgery.
The male tummy tuck surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. The method and technique used for your procedure will depend on your individual preference and what Dr. Wallach thinks will provide optimal results.
After your surgery, you will be required to wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and there will be waterproof bandages on your incisions. In order to ensure a safe recovery, you must follow the post-operative instructions given by Dr. Wallach diligently. Here are some of the instructions you will be given:
- Get sufficient rest
- Reduce the soreness by taking the prescribed medication on time
- Ensure you keep up with your follow up appointments so that any complications do not arise
Most tummy tuck patients return to their work in 1-2 weeks. However, it is important that you avoid any strenuous activities for 2 to 3 weeks post-operation. The incisions from your tummy tuck are placed inconspicuously so that they can be concealed easily. Your scars from the procedure will gradually fade. You can apply silicone sheets to your incisions which will help speed up your healing.
You will be able to see your results from the tummy tuck procedure immediately and these will continue to get better over the next few weeks. The stunning results obtained from the male tummy tuck act as a jumping board to follow a healthier lifestyle going forward. When you achieve a flat, toned, and muscular abdomen, you will want to retain your results with better lifestyle choices in the future. Spectacular tummy tuck results have helped many men maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to ensure these results are long-lasting.
The total amount you pay for your tummy tuck procedure includes several fees like the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia charges, fees for the facility, medication prescriptions, and charges for post-surgical garments.
Dr. Wallach offers the experience and training required for getting exceptional results in addition to ensuring personalized care to each patient. To give you the best results, he can often combine your tummy tuck with other cosmetic procedures like male liposuction, male breast reduction, male eyelid surgery, or a combined makeover.
