What is a Male Tummy Tuck?

A male tummy tuck procedure, medically termed abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that helps men to achieve a flatter stomach and a more contoured abdomen. 

The procedure involves removing excess skin on the abdomen which has resulted from significant changes in weight or as a result of genetics or aging. Many male tummy tuck patients also wish to have excess fat deposits removed from the abdomen to achieve a more contoured figure. Abdominal Liposuction is therefore often performed alongside a male tummy tuck procedure so that both skin and fat can be removed.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for a Male Tummy Tuck?

Generally, candidates suitable for a male tummy tuck will be those who:

  • Are in good physical health
  • Are a stable weight
  • Do not smoke
  • Have excess skin on the abdomen

How is a Male Tummy Tuck Performed?


A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist will administer general anesthesia so you remain asleep for the duration of the surgery.


An incision line is created, normally across the bottom of the abdomen so that the excess skin can be removed from the stomach. In cases where liposuction is also performed, a cannula will be used to vacuum out the excess fat deposits.


Dr. Liland will then close the incision with stitches. The incision line for a male tummy tuck can be fairly large and so any concerns regarding scarring can be discussed with Dr. Liland before the procedure.

Male Tummy Tuck Recovery?

After your surgery, it is essential that an adult drives you home and stays with you for a few days. You are likely to be in pain after your procedure and Dr. Liland will prescribe pain medication. Swelling is an initial side effect of the procedure which can take months to fully reduce and so it is recommended that you wear a compression garment for the first few weeks following your surgery to help reduce swelling. 

The exact recovery time will depend on the specific technique performed. Generally, Dallas Male Tummy Tuck patients take a few weeks off work to give their bodies time to heal and recover from the procedure.
