Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a procedure used to remove excess skin from the stomach to create a tight and flat abdomen area. Many male patients look to have this procedure following weight loss as they have been left with excess skin/fat and an overhang. A tummy tuck is not a remedy for obesity and should not be considered as a weight loss solution.
A mini tummy tuck is less complex and is usually more suited to patients who have loose skin on the lower half of the abdomen. An incision is made across the lower abdomen, where excess fat and loose skin is removed.
A full tummy tuck is a more complex procedure where one incision is made across the lower abdomen and another is made around the tummy button. The muscles are pulled tighter and stitched into place.
