Male Tummy Tuck in Plano, TX

Men are known for being able to maintain a toned, healthy body, but sometimes nature takes over, and you cannot get rid of that excess fat. Loose skin is another problem that cannot be remedied with diet and exercise. Whether it’s due to aging or massive weight loss, problems with the abdominal area can make you feel less confident. A male tummy tuck will restore your midsection while maintaining the masculine muscle definition. If you live in Plano, Frisco, and the greater Dallas area, schedule a consultation with Dr. Robert Wilcox. Dr. Wilcox is a highly skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in male tummy tuck procedures.

What Is A Male Tummy Tuck?

Male tummy tucks address the three most common problems that keep your abdomen from looking toned and tightened:

  • Excess skin
  • Stubborn fat deposits
  • Lax muscles

Because each man has unique needs for the abdominal area, Dr. Wilcox tailors the procedure to your needs. You may have strong muscles that are hidden under fat and loose skin, or you may have lax muscles due to carrying excess weight for many years. Whatever the case may be, Dr. Wilcox has the skills and experience you need to feel confident about the outcomes of your male tummy tuck.

Male Tummy Tuck Benefits

Your male tummy tuck will do much more than give you an attractive midsection. What many men do not realize until after their procedures is that a tummy tuck:

  • Simplifies your workouts by removing excess fat that can interfere with your movements
  • Increase your dedication to exercising and eating right because you will want to maintain the results
  • Boost your self-confidence which will reduce stress
  • Strengthen abdominal muscles in a way that improves posture and body mechanics which can reduce back pain and other conditions
  • Improve your quality of life

Who Is A Good Candidate For A Male Tummy Tuck?

A male tummy tuck is not a weight loss solution. Dr. Wilcox will verify that you are close to your ideal weight before recommending the procedure. Male tummy tucks do require the use of general anesthesia, so you should be in good health before having the procedure.

How Is A Male Tummy Tuck Performed?

Dr. Wilcox may recommend one of two techniques for your male tummy tuck:

  • Full tummy tuck to improve the area above and below your bellybutton
  • A mini tummy tuck if you only have fat below your belly button

The incisions for both procedures are the same, extending from one hip bone to the other along the upper section of the pubic region. A mini tummy tuck is not recommended for men who need any degree of muscle tightening. Male tummy tuck surgery takes one to five hours. After the surgery, you will wear a compression garment on your abdomen to promote healing. You will also need to restrict your activities until you are fully healed.

Why Choose Dr. Wilcox For Your Male Tummy Tuck

A male tummy tuck should not only tone your abdomen, but also improve the area in a way that enhances masculinity. This takes an understanding of the anatomy of a man’s body and the plastic surgery techniques that will preserve and improve these aspects. Dr. Wilcox specializes in male tummy tucks, and he has the experience you need for your procedure.
