Male Tummy Tuck Surgery In Chicago

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

Dr. Steinbrech and the Alpha Male Plastic Surgery Group have developed a tummy tuck for men known as a TorsoTuck™. Like the tummy tuck, this surgery eliminates the surplus skin left hanging on the midsection. This procedure is particularly designed for patients who have experienced substantial weight loss. Many men who lose weight struggle with this loose, excess flab and find it extremely difficult to attain their desired physique. Unlike the tummy tuck, the TorsoTuck™ is specifically intended for male patients, and will not only improve the appearance of the torso, but also the upper thighs and buttocks. The TorsoTuck™ guarantees a natural look from every angle and is an important final step in any man’s weight loss journey.

How Is a Tummy Tuck Performed On Men?

After an initial consultation, your tummy tuck appointment will be scheduled at our Chicago practice. On the day of surgery, Dr. Steinbrech will begin by providing a general anesthetic. Incisions will be made near the buttocks, thighs, and lower part of the stomach. The exact locations of these incisions depend on your specific surgical needs and physical characteristics. Your excess skin will be removed, and the remaining skin will be stretched across the body to create a smooth, natural and healthy look. Dr. Steinbrech will also suction out any excess fat before suturing the incisions and applying bandages.

Due to the invasive nature of the tummy tuck, it is extremely important that patients take the time to plan ahead, in preparation for both the operation and recovery period. Depending on the extensiveness of the procedure, recovery time can vary considerably, but it is likely that you will not be able to return to work for about two weeks.

Before the TorsoTuck™, Dr. Steinbrech and Dr. Gonzalez will meet with potential patients at their Chicago practice. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss your goals and expectations for the tummy tuck, noting the problem areas on your body which the procedure will target. Once he determines that you make a good candidate, the Alpha Male Plastic Surgery team will tailor their operative plan to your specific needs.

Who Is a Good Candidate For a Tummy Tuck?

The TorsoTuck is specifically intended for patients who have lost a large amount of weight and have been able to keep that weight off. Because weight loss often leaves a substantial amount of excess skin hanging around the torso, many men find themselves unsatisfied with their appearance even after healthy lifestyle changes. Dr. Steinbrech’s TorsoTuck provides a solution to this problem, eliminating flab and contouring the remaining skin into the body you desire.

You Are A Good Candidate For A Tummy Tuck If You:

  • Have lost a large amount of weight and have managed to keep that weight off
  • You have excess skin and flab around the torso
  • Are currently in good health, but want to boost your self-confidence and body image
  • Desire a more contoured, smooth look for your upper body
  • Have specific and realistic goals in mind

What Can I Expect From My Tummy Tuck Recovery?

Immediately after the tummy tuck procedure, patients will wear compression garments to reduce swelling and assist in the healing process. Medication will also be provided to relieve pain. As each tummy tuck procedure is uniquely designed to fulfill each individual’s specific needs, recovery times can vary. However, most patients require up to two weeks of recovery time before they can return to work. More physical activity, including exercise, can usually resume within one to two months, as patients gradually return to their normal physical routine.
