Men tend to find that with encroaching age, they develop a more portly tummy in a development commonly known as ‘middle aged spread’. For most men the growth of a pot belly is both unsightly and unwelcome, and for many exercise and dietary changes do not seem to be enough to lose the weight. One of the most popular ways to deal with excess weight around the tummy and waist is to have the subcutaneous fat removed by liposuction. For men who have managed to lose weight, they can find that the skin around their tummy does not shrink back into place, leaving loose folds of saggy skin behind. A cosmetic surgeon may suggest a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty to give it its proper name) to remove the loose skin and create a more firm abdomen. You can find more information about liposuction and tummy tuck procedures using the links below in addition to some of the potential advantages and disadvantages of each.

The overall goal of any cosmetic procedure undertaken on a man’s tummy is to improve the appearance of the abdomen. For some men the ultimate aim will be to reverse the ageing process by removing loose skin and tightening the remainder to create a firmer look usually by having a tummy tuck performed. For other men the desire to lose their ‘spare tire’ or ‘pot belly’ will require the use of liposuction to remove the layer of fat which sits between their skin and abdominal muscles. Both procedures are relatively straightforward and yield extremely positive results. Men undergoing cosmetic surgery on their tummy will find that their self-confidence will soar as a direct result of their improved appearance, providing additional benefits at both work and home. Tummy surgery procedures have the added advantage of creating a level of future-proofing against future sagginess.
