What Is A
Male Tummy Tuck?
A male tummy tuck is designed to target the specific aesthetic challenges that face men when it comes to achieving a defined abdominal contour. For many men, even rigorous diet and exercise regimens fail to yield the defined, toned abdominal look they desire. Tummy tuck surgery performed by Dr. Chris Patronella in Houston removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles for a flatter, more chiseled stomach area.
Why are tummy tucks different for men and women?
While the basics of the procedure are performed the same way for men and women, it is important to have a surgeon who understands the aesthetic desires of men. Men tend to place more focus on attaining better abdominal definition, whereas women often desire smoother and more slender stomach areas. In addition, Dr. Patronella is attentive to creating ideal masculine proportions such as straight waist and hip lines in contrast to the more curvaceous contours that characterize his body contouring procedures for women.
Does tummy tuck surgery eliminate unwanted fat?
Some fat removal can occur during tummy tuck surgery. However, patients with extensive fat deposits could benefit from liposuction in conjunction with their tummy tuck. Liposuction removes unwanted fat through vacuum suction.
