A tummy tuck for men (abdominoplasty), is a procedure used to remove excess skin from the stomach to create a tighter and flatter abdomen area.

A male tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that helps improve the appearance and contours of the abdomen. Like liposuction, this is not a remedy for weight loss, but more of a body-reshaping tool to improve confidence.
A tummy tuck for men is designed to treat areas that cannot be adjusted through diet or exercise or to remove excess skin that remains as a result of weight loss.
The cost of a men’s tummy tuck at MYA cosmetic surgery starts at £7,345.
It’s important to remember that prices may vary depending on the patient's requirements. You’ll get a guide price during your initial eConsult and a fixed price at your consultation with one of our surgeons.
There are two types of abdominoplasty surgery; a mini and a full male tummy tuck, both of which are performed under general anaesthetic. A mini tummy tuck is less complex and is usually more suited to patients who have loose skin on the lower half of the abdomen. An incision is made across the lower abdomen, where excess fat and loose skin are removed.
A full male tummy tuck is a more complex procedure where one incision is made across the lower abdomen and another is made around the tummy button. The muscles are pulled tighter and stitched into place.
The initial recovery period for a male tummy tuck is 6-8 weeks.
It’s normal for patients to experience discomfort during this time, so pain relief is prescribed to ease any soreness. You may feel tightness in the area too, this is just your body adjusting to the change.
A compression garment will also be provided to assist healing. This should be worn as instructed by your surgeon and MYA nurse.
You will be invited back for a post-op appointment at your local clinical hub (usually around 7-14 days after your procedure). Here, your MYA nurse will deliver wound care and check on your healing.
Patients should not get their incisions wet until advised by their MYA nurse. Until then, you can wash around the area and have shallow baths, keeping the area as dry as possible.
During the first 6-8 weeks of your recovery, you should avoid any heavy lifting - whether it’s your kids or weights in the gym, putting strain on your incision can affect the final result.
A male tummy tuck scar will depend on how much fat, skin and tissue is removed during the procedure. While they never fully disappear, they will become lighter and flatter over time.
Most patients will see a change in appearance almost straight away, but for some, it can take a few months for swelling and bruising to reduce and see the final result.

Below is a small selection of some of MYA's before and after photos for tummy tucks. When you come in for your free consultation, your Patient Coordinator will be able to show you more photos.
Please bear in mind that all of MYA's photos are taken at 6 weeks post-op and scarring will continue to fade for up to a year.
Scarring can vary in length given the amount of skin and tissue that needs to be removed but placement is commonly the lower stomach above the pubic bone from hip to hip.
