What is Men's Abdominoplasty

Male abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck” for men, is expertly performed by Dr. Kristopher M. Day MD at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery. This surgical procedure is designed to improve the appearance of the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat while tightening the underlying muscles. It is often sought by men who have experienced significant weight loss, aging-related changes, or wish to address loose skin and muscle laxity following bariatric surgery. Male abdominoplasty can help achieve a firmer, more toned abdomen, enhance abdominal contours, and restore a more youthful appearance to the midsection.

Good Candidates for Male Abdominoplasty

Day MD at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery, are men who have excess abdominal skin and fat, particularly in the lower abdomen, that does not respond to diet and exercise.

Candidates should be in good overall health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. Additionally, they should be committed to maintaining a stable weight following surgery for optimal results.
