Male Tummy Tuck Surgery

What Is a Male Tummy Tuck?

Dr. Steinbrech and the Alpha Male Plastic Surgery Group have developed a tummy-tuck for men known as a TorsoTuck®. This surgery eliminates the surplus skin on the midsection, like the tummy tuck. This procedure is mainly 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 intended explicitly for male patients and will improve the appearance of the torso and the upper thighs and buttocks. The TorsoTuck® guarantees a natural look from every angle and is an essential final step in any man’s weight loss journey. According to recent statistics, the percentages of men receiving tummy tuck procedures are seen to increase yearly.

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 excess fat before suturing the incisions and applying bandages.

Preparation For Surgery

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. Recovery time can vary considerably depending on the extent of the procedure, but it is likely that you will not be able to return to work for about two weeks.

Before the TorsoTuck®, Dr. Steinbrech will meet with potential patients at Male Plastic Surgery’s Chicago practice. This meeting aims to discuss your goals and expectations for the tummy tuck and note the problem areas on your body that the procedure will target. Once he determines that you are a good candidate, the Alpha Male Plastic Surgery team will tailor their operative plan to your needs.

Who Is a Good Candidate For This Procedure?

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 are unsatisfied with their appearance even after healthy lifestyle changes. The Male Plastic Surgery Group’s TorsoTuck® solves this problem, eliminating flab and contouring the remaining skin into the desired body.

A Tummy-Tuck Is a Good Option If:

  • I have lost a large amount of weight and have managed to keep that weight off
  • Have excess skin and flab around the torso
  • Are you 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 Recovery?

Immediately after the tummy tuck procedure, patients wear compression garments to reduce swelling and assist in the healing process. In addition, the patient will receive medication to relieve pain if deemed necessary. Each tummy tuck procedure is uniquely designed to fulfill each individual’s needs, so recovery times can vary. However, most patients require up to two weeks of recovery before returning to work. Patients can resume more physical activity, including exercise, typically within one to two months, as they gradually return to their regular physical routine.
