Male Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a popular procedure for men who are seeking a flatter and tighten abdomen,

Dr. Markarian will remove the excess skin and sculpt the tummy to its natural contours, resulting in a flatter, firmer tummy and a more toned appearance. Many patients report that their clothes fit them much better after Tummy Tuck surgery, and they have a new confidence in showing off their stomach.

I’ve always been drawn to the variety of surgical procedures involved in plastic surgery. Stomach tightening is one of the unique areas of the body that has an exhaustive set of options, with new technologies emerging and constant updates in surgical techniques. I often talk to patients about the non-invasive and invasive/surgical techniques utilized to “tighten the stomach” and educate the patients on the treatment that best suits them. These include non-invasive tightening procedures such as coolsculpting, ultrasound or radiofrequency modalities. This also includes surgical methods to tighten the stomach such as excise skin, tightening abdominal muscles, and focused liposuction to create the goal abdominal contour. I feel that all patients are unique and a one-size-fits-all mentality is never the correct option. I enjoy navigating the world of abdominal tightening treatments to individualize the treatment, surgical or not, to the patient’s specific needs

A man in his 20s is shown 1 month after a short incision Tummy Tuck. Prior to surgery, the patient had lost a significant amount of weight with diet and exercise, but still had excess skin in his abdomen, both above and below the belly button, that could only be treated with a Tummy Tuck. A scar minimizing technique provided a short waistline incision well hidden below the underwear line, and a special belly button technique was utilized to provide no visible scar on the external skin.
