Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia and South Jersey, Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs men’s tummy tucks for patients desiring plastic surgery for men.
The abdomen is one of the most attractive areas of a man’s body, especially when the toned underlying muscles show. Many of our male patients come to see Dr. Glat because exercise alone does little to minimize a flabby midsection. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, helps these men achieve a sexy, rippled stomach by subtracting excess fat and skin.
During the consultation, Dr. Glat determines the best tummy tuck technique for the patient – full tummy tuck, mini tummy tuck or extended tummy tuck. The factors that are considered are location of excess fat, condition of underlying muscle, and amount of excess skin. Patients are advised that tummy tucks require extensive incisions, so the resultant scar may extend from one hipbone to the other.
Recovery from a tummy tuck can be a lengthy process, and patients should arrange to have a friend or family member remain with them during the in-home recovery period. Bed rest is required for up to three days, and full recovery can take three weeks or longer.
Poor body image is detrimental to your confidence and self-esteem. You may feel energetic, engaging, and enthusiastic on the inside, but being unhappy with your external appearance can keep these positive aspects hidden inside you. While physical appearance may initially attract people to you, your personality is what keeps them interested, but if you feel dissatisfied with how you look, you may not allow the best parts of you to really shine. We have worked with hundreds of men just like you, and we invite you to discuss your cosmetic goals with Dr. Glat during a consultation appointment at our Philadelphia-area cosmetic surgery office.
The best male candidates for tummy tucks are in good overall health and have realistic expectations of the surgery. If you have recently lost weight and want a tummy tuck to refine the results, you should wait until you have maintained your weight for a period of time. Even if now is not the right time for your tummy tuck, Dr. Glat is happy to discuss your future treatment.
