Do I need to do anything to prepare for a male tummy tuck?
You will need to try and lose as much weight as possible, and ideally be close to your ideal weight. You will also need to stop smoking at least two weeks before the surgery.
Can I have a mini tummy-tuck instead?
This will depend on how much excess skin and tissue you have that needs to be removed. If the excess skin is located on the lower abdomen, a mini tummy tuck may be a suitable procedure. Your surgeon will be able to determine what the most suitable procedure is during your initial consultation.
Should I have a tummy tuck or liposuction?
This will depend on your body and your overall goals. Liposuction allows you to remove excess fat. However, it does not remove any skin nor create tightness in the abdominal muscles. If this is what you require, a tummy tuck will be more suitable. If you're not sure, you can book a consultation with one of our surgeons, who will be able to assess your body, listen to your wants and needs and assure you which surgery you should have.
Will I have scars?
As an incision is being made, you will have a scar across the pubic hairline. This is generally able to be hidden with clothing such as underwear or swimwear.
Are there any risks or complications?
As this is a surgical procedure, it carries the rare chance of complications. Risks include excessive bleeding, infection, swelling, scar irregularities and blood clots. All of these risks are very rare.
