Abdominoplasty Surgery For Men in Atlanta, GA
For a man, abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure similar to a tummy tuck performed on a woman, but not identical. A male abdominoplasty requires a shorter and different incision. Additionally, fat distribution differs in males and frequently requires additional liposuction to achieve the desired body sculpting.

Atlanta Tummy Tuck - FAQs
Diastasis recti is the separation of the rectus abdominal muscles, which is common in women after pregnancy. It is the cause of that “post-baby belly pooch” that never goes away. A full tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is used to tighten and repair this separation, restoring a flat and smooth abdomen
Liposuction removes fat only, without treating stretched skin or weakened muscles. Liposuction alone can be an excellent choice for slimming stubborn areas of excess fat, but only if the skin has the resilience to tighten naturally over the reduced contours. When stretched, loose skin is part of the problem, surgery to remove excess skin is needed for optimal results. A tummy tuck can also repair separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti).
When correction of diastasis recti (muscle repair) is required as part of a tummy tuck, more discomfort can occur in the first days of recovery. Dr. Crispin, one of the top tummy tuck doctors in Atlanta, GA, can use EXPAREL long-acting anesthetic, injected directly into the muscle at the time of surgery, to provide more comfort to supplement oral pain medications.
