Male Tummy Tuck in Houston, TX
After significant weight loss, you are left with loose skin and the remaining stubborn fat that diet and exercise cannot get rid of. Dr. Newall can help reduce the excess skin through a procedure called abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck. A male tummy tuck can significantly reduce excess fat, skin tissue, and repair the abdominal wall. Through this procedure, patients can get back a masculine contour. Dr. German Newall, a board-certified plastic surgeon, has helped countless men in Houston and the surrounding areas of Post Oak, Sugar Land, and Katy feel confident again.
What is a Male Tummy Tuck?
A male tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a two-fold process. The male tummy tuck will remove excess skin and also tighten weakened abdominal muscles for a more defined, firmer masculine profile. Today, more men than ever are turning to plastic surgeons to help fight these factors and regain their physique.
What Can I Expect After a Male Tummy Tuck?
To reduce swelling, a compression garment will be worn for approximately four weeks after surgery. To help promote blood circulation, you will be encouraged to get out of bed and take short walks.
The results from a tummy tuck are long lasting, in most cases, if a stable weight is maintained. If you are planning substantial weight loss, you may wish to postpone abdominoplasty surgery to avoid fluctuations in weight that could impact your results.
Can a Tummy Tuck Be Combined with Liposuction for Men?
Dr. Newall is a nationally recognized expert for his ability to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction to achieve a toned and tightened appearance that some thought could only be achieved through a more extensive body lift. You may be a candidate for this procedure if you have pockets of unwanted fat in addition to loose abdominal skin.
What Can I Expect the Day of the Male Tummy Tuck Procedure?
We perform all of our surgeries in an AAAASF-certified surgical facility. The day of surgery, you will receive medications to keep you comfortable during the surgical procedure. A board-certified anesthesiologist will be present to administer the sedatives or general anesthesia. Various monitors will be set up to check your heart, blood pressure, pulse, and the amount of oxygen circulating in your blood.
Dr. Newall will follow the surgical plan discussed in consultation. He may change the technique to ensure the best results. Surgical drains may also be placed, and surgical dressings use will depend on the procedures you undergo.
After surgery, you will be taken into a recovery area where you will be monitored by a nurse. You may be able to go home the day of surgery or spend one or two nights in the recovery suites with a nurse. You will certainly need some help from a family member or friend during the recovery period.
Where will the procedure be performed?
