In today's society, physique and the appearance of youth are immensely valued. This can be particularly challenging for the individual in a highly competitive field. Remaining relevant today means more than maintaining your resume, it also means taking care of your physical appearance. If your appearance is in conflict with your self-image, find out what is possible in the office of your plastic surgeon. For many of our male patients, the tummy tuck procedure makes perfect sense.
There are several reasons to visit Burnett Plastic Surgery in NJ for a surgical consultation. The body can change as a result of numerous factors. Men who seek tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, have typically lost a significant amount of weight and are left with loose, sagging skin. If you have invested "blood, sweat, and tears" into your physical transformation, abdominoplasty may achieve the toned midsection you have worked so hard for.
The technique used to achieve the best results will be tailored to individual body frame and the desired physical appearance of the patient. In a thorough consultation visit, Dr. Burnett can determine the best procedure for you.
Mini tummy tuck
When the area of concern is localized between the hips and the navel, a mini tummy tuck may be appropriate. This procedure is intended to tighten loose skin. It does not address muscle tone.
Standard tummy tuck
This procedure involves making a horizontal incision just above the pubic area. Lingering fat will be removed to create a smooth result. Abdominal muscles that have become saggy are stitched into a tighter position. Finally, excess skin is removed and remaining tissue is tightened.
Extended tummy tuck
An extended tummy tuck addresses the abdomen as well as the flanks. If necessary, the procedure can begin with liposuction to remove excess fat from these areas. Like the standard tummy tuck, this procedure will tighten skin as well as underlying abdominal muscles. Additionally, the navel will be repositioned as needed to create the most natural appearance.
It is fortunate that men no longer feel excluded from the benefits of plastic surgery. Learn more about the male tummy tuck when you call our Westfield office.
