Men are less open than women in talking about their body insecurities, but their self-confidence is just as likely to suffer if struggling with a “spare tire” that just won’t go away. How you feel about your physical appearance can be a major barrier to feeling positive, and not just about your body. If you’re frustrated by the appearance of sagging abdominal skin, a tummy tuck may help.*
Fat Distribution in Men
As men age, their fat distribution changes. This leads to a paunchy midsection that diet and exercise may not seem to help. Not only is this excess fat frustrating, but extra belly fat may also pose a health risk to the cardiovascular system.
Men who are overweight and put in the time and effort to get back down to a healthier number on the scale are often discouraged to find that excess skin and tissue can remain behind even after weight loss. These can’t be resolved just by adding more crunches to your existing workout routine; they have to be addressed surgically.
For those men who long for the days when they could go shirtless without embarrassment, an abdominoplasty may help. A tummy tuck removes extra fat and skin from the waistline to create a more chiseled look through the lower abdomen.* When performed in conjunction with liposuction, the results can be even more impressive.*
Though abdominoplasty is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, a male tummy tuck can offer a solution to the problem of sagging abdominal skin.*
