Weight gain, weight loss, and other factors beyond your control such as heredity may contribute to an abdomen that protrudes or folds over your waistline.

The problem area may be limited to a small pouch around the navel, or it may extend to a larger area like the love handles.

An abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck for Men, at the Grand Rapids Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery could be just what you need to get rid of stubborn fat in your abdomen. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bradley Bengtson can customize your procedure to safely sculpt a flat, toned, masculine abdomen and waist that complements your body and meets your desired goals.

What is a male abdominoplasty?

Male abdominoplasty, commonly called a Tummy Tuck for Men, creates a flatter, toned abdomen by reducing excess abdominal skin and tissue. A Tummy Tuck for Men in Grand Rapids at our practice may include one or more of the following:

  • Correction of diastasis, a condition in which the vertical rectus abdominal muscles have become separated is common and may be repaired.
  • The correction of excess skin and fat of the upper and lower abdomen is termed an abdominoplasty and may extend across the entire lower abdomen or be more limited depending upon the amount of extra skin you require to be removed. We customize a plan to each individual patient.
  • Fat pockets alone, with minimal to no extra skin, may be removed with either surgical techniques of liposuction or non-surgical options such as CoolSculpting.
  • Fat-reduction techniques are also performed with the skin removal techniques of abdominoplasty.
