Abdominoplasty for men: what is it?

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is performed if you are dissatisfied with your abdomen. The skin is made firmer and thinner by removing excess fat. In addition, the muscles are re-tightened in order to create a tighter abdomen. There are different types of tummy tucks, and we tailor the procedure exactly to your body. After all, some people suffer more than others from a hanging belly or a protruding belly. After abdominoplasty, you should be more comfortable in your own skin.

Help, I can't get rid of my belly!

No matter what you've tried, do you remain stuck with that excess belly? Unfortunately, exercising and adjusting your diet will not always help. After all, the skin will sag due to age, genetics, certain foods, possible medication, alcohol consumption and smoking, among other things. Struggling for hours in the gym and losing a lot of weight often do not result in a tighter body, abdominoplasty does.

Tighter abdomen for men: various types of corrections

At Wellness Kliniek, we personalise the tummy tuck. For example, a mini tummy tuck, whereby excess skin is removed below the navel, will suffice for some people. In a full tummy tuck, fatty tissue above the navel is also removed. Optionally, even the navel may be repositioned (Fleur-de-Lis). In addition, in most cases the stomach muscles are strengthened for a tighter result. Of course, you do not have to decide what suits you, as our doctors can inform you well.

Excess skin through weight loss

If you have recently lost a lot of weight, the skin often does not stretch back to how it once was. That is of course a pity, especially after you have put so much effort into getting a tighter and thinner body. In this case, a tummy tuck offers a solution.

However, if you are now suffering from a lot of excess fat, it is better to lose weight first. If your body weight is too unhealthy, abdominoplasty carries more risks, including infections and bleeding. At Wellness Kliniek, we will of course advise you on this: you will only undergo the operation if we consider it safe to do so.

Dad bod due to age

The process of ageing is something we all have to face. In men, it can result in a drooping belly, also known as a dad bod. A drooping belly with flabby skin, or a thickened skin with a belly that protrudes, everyone is different. With a tummy tuck, almost every "dad bod" can be tackled in such a way that it looks tighter.

Abdominoplasty is also known as a tummy tuck. And when you undergo such an operation, you want to be sure that it is performed in a safe manner. At Wellness Kliniek, we attach great importance to safety and professionalism, which is why we employ the most experienced surgeons. From comprehensive information to a properly performed tummy tuck and proper aftercare, you can rely on us.

For which men is abdominoplasty suitable?

Is your health good but do you want a tighter stomach? Do you have realistic expectations? Then in principle abdominoplasty can be a solution for you. Note: if you have a large amount of fat in your abdomen around your organs, sports and dieting or a stomach operation are a better option. Our doctors will be happy to advise you on the best options for your body and your situation. Book a no-obligation consultation to find out what the possibilities are for your body.

Male abdominoplasty procedure

An abdominoplasty can be performed in various ways. The best technique for you? That depends on your anatomy and your goal. Usually, the abdominal muscles are tightened and the excess skin is removed. The incision is made in the lower part of the abdomen, below the 'belt'.

The operation takes about two hours and is performed under general anaesthesia. The incision is about 50 centimetres and will usually disappear into the folds of your skin, making it virtually invisible over time. An overnight stay is not necessary, but can be booked as an option. The appropriate bandages (abdominal belts) will be applied and then the recovery can begin.

What can you expect?

After the procedure, your lower abdomen will be rid of drooping, flabby skin. Your abdomen will be tighter and your silhouette more attractive. Due to their location, the scars are barely visible and fade over time. After the operation, you will need - depending on the exact procedure - to rest for several weeks and avoid sports and (heavy) physical work.

The results of the tummy tuck remain visible in most cases. However, you should take into account that gaining or losing weight can lead to a change in your body. We therefore recommend that you adhere to the aftercare instructions. Naturally, we will discuss these in detail with you prior to the operation. In addition, we provide excellent aftercare and you can come to us with all your questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there different types of tummy tucks?
Yes there are. The differents types are a mini tummy tuck, a full tummy tuck, a fleur de lis tummy tuck and a lower body lift. Each tummy tuck procedure is extremely individual and a thorough assessment is necessary to achieve the most beautiful, permanent results. During the consultation the surgeon will determine which is the best technique for you and exactly what you can expect.
How long does tummy tuck surgery take?
This depends on the type of tummy tuck surgery that will be most suitable for you. On average, a mini tummy tuck will take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. A full tummy tuck may take 2 to 2 ½ hours. You will be under general anaesthetic during this time. Patients will be required an overnight stay, but this will be discussed with your surgeon during the consultation stage.
What is the recovery time? When can I go back to work?
As with most major surgeries, you should allow yourself an adequate amount of recovery time. Most patients will need to rest for 2 to 4 weeks afterwards, this is shorter if you have only had a mini tummy tuck, usually 1 to 2 weeks. It is advised to take at least one week off from work. All patients are invited for a free follow up consult.
What is a Mommy Makeover?
A Mommy Makeover treats the tummy and the breasts, precisely the problem areas that many mothers have to cope with. The treatments are performed simultaneously, during a single operation. The advantage of combined treatment is that you are not out of action any longer than necessary.
Is a Mommy makeover suitable for me?
A Mommy Makeover is suitable for all mothers, young and old. It is important that you are in good health. A Mommy Makeover gives the best result if you are at your target weight before the operation. If you are too fat, it is best to lose weight first. If you are overweight, you run the risk of complications such as infection, poor wound healing and post-operative bleeding. Your BMI (Body Mass Index) must never be higher than 30.
