The focus of a man’s body is usually the tummy. The ideal case is a well-trained and well-defined tummy, but many people have problems with this case. In order to get rid of excessive skin and to regain a confident self, a tummy tuck can help. This makes sense if fat pads do not vanish due to sports. The reasons for no change of the tummy can be strong changes of weight, certain diseases or side effects of some medicine, as well as a wrong diet. Another reason can be the natural ageing of skin leading to a loss of elasticity and a non-tight belly. A tummy tuck can help the body to get its original shape step by step.

General Information about Tummy Tuck
The procedure of plastic surgery depends on the starting position and desired results of the patient. If only excessive skin has to be removed, a small abdominoplasty is enough, which implies a cut between navel and intimate zone. An alternative is the full classical abdominal plastic. In this case, a long cut is set from one pelvic bone to another. This surgery removes more skin and a stronger lifting occurs, but the navel has to be replaced. If fat pads at the belly should be removed additionally, a combined tummy tuck with liposuction can be an option.
High frequency technology is used in order to lift the tummy because it guarantees an anemic work and therefore, a lower burden for the body. The surgery will be carried out stationary and under general anaesthesia. An absorbable thread and special skin suture is used in order to ensure a thin and barely visible scar. Two Redon drains are necessary for the drain of wound fluid. These are removed one or two days after the surgery.
Possible Complications and Aftercare
Every surgery contains a certain risk, even treatments for men and the tummy tuck is not an exception. However, complications are rare, even though small swellings and bruises need to be expected. The patient has to stay in the clinic for one week. Medicine is used if the pains are stronger, but all burdens should disappear after some weeks. A restrictive sensibility of the body can shortly occur. The healing is supported by compression girdle that has to be worn after 8-12 weeks. This stabilizes the tummy and reduces swellings. In a few cases, the patient suffers from thrombosis or circulatory disturbances. In either case, the doctor can help.
The patient has to rest for 6-8 weeks and should not do any sports. Direct sunlight and sauna sessions should be avoided. The final result can be seen after 9-12 months.
