Most people think of the "tummy tuck" or abdominoplasty surgery as a women's operation. Indeed, it is more common in women, likely because women undergo more weight fluctations due to childbearing, and often experience disruption of their abdominal muscles.
However, abdominoplasty in male patients is a powerful technique for restoring an aesthetic contour to the trunk, and patient satisfaction is extremely high. Men who have scars from previous abdominal surgery, hernias, or excess skin and fat due to weight loss benefit significantly from this technique.
When performing an abdominoplasty in a male patient, I design my incision in a different manner, to create a more masculine, triangular-shaped torso. (In women, the incision and technique is designed to accentuate an hourglass figure).
