Male Body Contouring After Weight Loss
Losing a large amount of weight is a big accomplishment that should be celebrated. Unfortunately, many men are left with hanging skin and stubborn fat bulges on the stomach that diet and exercise just won’t touch. A tummy tuck—also called abdominoplasty—can help you enjoy your hard-earned results by removing excess skin and fat, tightening your underlying abdominal muscles, and tightening the remaining skin. This creates smoother, tighter contours that highlight your abdominal muscles.
How Much Does a Male Tummy Tuck Cost in the Washington, DC, Metro Area?

What to Expect From a Male Tummy Tuck
Our surgeons perform tummy tuck surgery with patients under general anesthesia in our accredited surgical suite or at Sibley Memorial Hospital. Depending on your individual needs and the specifics of your procedure, you may be required to stay overnight for your initial recovery. Your surgeon will begin by making a horizontal incision low on your abdomen, just above your pubic area in a natural skin fold to ensure resulting scars are as inconspicuous as possible.
Through this incision, your surgeon will separate the excess skin from the muscles of your abdominal wall. This will allow him to examine and evaluate your underlying muscle structure and repair any weakness or laxity that may be present. Once the muscles have been repaired, excess abdominal skin will be removed and remaining skin will be tightened.
If necessary, your surgeon will then perform liposuction to remove any deposits of stubborn fat in the area to ensure a flat, even outcome. Once the desired results have been achieved, your incision will be sutured and dressed, and you will be placed in a special compression garment to promote healing and protect your results.

What Is Recovery Like After a Tummy Tuck?
To reduce the accumulation of fluid in the area, you will likely be sent home with drains. Within three to five days, you will return to the office for your follow-up appointment and to have your drains removed. The support garment should be worn for around three weeks, but can be taken off when you shower or bathe.
After your procedure, you will experience swelling and some discomfort in the area. Your surgeon may prescribe oral pain medication to help manage this discomfort, and you should be feeling comfortable enough to resume light activities within a week to ten days. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for at least two to three weeks, though we encourage you to walk as soon as possible after surgery to reduce swelling and fluid accumulation.
