Male Tummy Tuck

Offered at our convenient location in Denver, CO

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is an effective way to achieve a tight and toned abdomen. It is a cosmetic surgery that can help men obtain a midsection that looks more masculine and aesthetically pleasing. It involves removing excess skin, tissue, and fat from the abdomen to provide a slimmer look and appealing contours.

At Advanced Body Sculpting Institute, our team of expert surgeons provides tummy tucks for male and female patients in the Denver area. We know that cosmetic care can be just as vital and life-changing for men as it is for women.

About Male Tummy Tucks

If you have lost a significant amount of weight, you may still be disappointed with the appearance of your midsection. In some cases, losing weight will not result in a tight and toned abdomen, as the skin and tissue that once surrounded the higher volume of fat cells cannot re-form to the body’s new and slimmer dimensions. Having a refined and muscular midsection is a vital aspect of a traditionally masculine physique, and it can be disappointing when losing weight fails to provide this appearance. Fortunately, renowned plastic surgery centers like Advanced Body Sculpting Institute provide tummy tuck procedures for men who are ready to take the next step in their aesthetic journey. It can treat men who have lost weight from medical conditions or changes in lifestyle. It has also become a popular solution for addressing excess skin left as a result of post-bariatric surgery weight loss. (1)

Tummy tucks can tighten and contour the abdomen, as well as improve the strength of the underlying musculature. Our surgeons make incisions in discreet areas of the abdomen, placing them in areas that can be hidden by clothing and align with the natural contours of the abdomen. There are three types of the tummy tuck procedure: mini, full, and extended. These range respectively from smaller to larger incisions that deal with minimal to maximal amounts of excess skin, fat, and tissue. Our surgeons use these incisions to remove excess skin and access tissue and fat cells. To remove excess fat cells, they often incorporate liposuction as a part of the tummy tuck procedure. Liposuction involves the use of a tube-like tool called a cannula to break apart fat cells and remove them from the body using suction. Along with removing excess skin, fat, and tissue, our surgeons can also use sutures to reinforce the abdominal muscles, making for a firmer midsection. They complete the procedure by pulling the remaining skin tautly over the abdomen to provide an optimal contour.

What is a Drainless Tummy Tuck?

At Advanced Body Sculpting Institute, we offer drainless tummy tucks, a variation of the tummy tuck procedure that can minimize scarring and make recovery a safer and easier process. They involve the use of quilted, or progressive tension sutures, a method for closing tummy tuck incisions that reduce the space between the skin, tissue, and muscles of the abdomen. This means that fluid will not build up in the treatment area, making post-surgical drains unnecessary. This can make recovery a simpler process for the patient as they do not have to deal with drains and take extra care of their incisions as they heal. (2) Quilted sutures also heal more reliably, which can make the resultant scarring less noticeable.

Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

There are numerous benefits that come with receiving a tummy tuck from Advanced Body Sculpting Institute in Denver. These include:

  • Removing excess skin, fat, and tissue from the abdomen in one efficient procedure
  • Getting rid of the pudgy skin and tissue that can hang over your belt
  • Achieving a tighter and more toned abdomen
  • Obtaining a more masculine physique with a more athletic-looking midsection
  • Strengthening the muscles of the abdomen for a firmer core

Who is a Candidate for a Tummy Tuck?

If you are sick of bulgy and soft-looking skin, fat, and tissue affecting the appearance of your abdomen, a tummy tuck might be the right choice for you. Many men in the Denver area receive tummy tuck procedures to give their midsection the classic “ripped” appearance that can make you look “carved from marble.”

To be eligible, you should be in relatively good health. Being healthy enough to heal properly from surgery is essential to the success of your procedure and the achievement of your desired results. Tummy tucks, as well as the liposuction procedures that we often combine with them, are not a weight loss solution. If you are considering this treatment, you should already be close to your target weight. It is designed to complete the aesthetic transformation that a healthy and active lifestyle has already begun. You should also have a good attitude and realistic expectations about this procedure. A tummy tuck can improve the appearance of your abdomen and put you well on your way to achieving the body of your dreams.

At your personal consultation, one of our experienced patient coordinators will walk you through the tummy tuck procedure and answer all of your questions.

You can discuss your aesthetic goals and they can describe how various treatment routes could bring you closer to reaching them. Come prepared to answer questions about your medical history, including details about past surgeries, prescriptions, and medications. They may also run some tests to get an idea of your current condition. If you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck, we can give you an accurate cost estimate and schedule your procedure appointment.

Preparing for your tummy tuck is a crucial part of your treatment at Advanced Body Sculpting Institute. After your consultation, we will use the information you provided to create a personalized set of instructions. These will be geared towards preparing your body to undergo surgery, recovering quickly, and healing completely.

Before any cosmetic surgery, there are a handful of general guidelines that can improve your treatment experience. These include:

  • Avoiding alcohol, tobacco, and nicotine products to improve your ability to heal and prevent complications.
  • Stopping the use of NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) that can thin the blood and increase bleeding during surgery, and avoiding vitamin E and certain herbal supplements for the same reason.
  • Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • Preparing your home for recovery. You will have limited mobility as you heal, so keeping everything within reach and creating a comfortable space to relax will help.
  • Arranging for a friend or family member to drive you home after your surgery and look after you for the first 24 hours of your recovery.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

Here at ABS Institute, we perform tummy tuck procedures on an outpatient basis. Before your procedure, we will administer local or general anesthesia, depending on the nature of your treatment plan. Your surgeon will make the necessary incisions (usually from hip bone to hip bone) and proceed to perform liposuction if necessary. They will then remove the excess skin and tissue. Finally, they will tighten your abdominal muscles with internal sutures, where necessary. To complete your procedure, they will pull your skin tight and close the incision. We will bring you to a recovery room where your anesthesia will begin to wear off and we will monitor your condition. When you are in stable condition we can send you home.


We recommend that you take up to two weeks off from work in order to recover from a tummy tuck. It is important that you rest and relax as your body heals. You may experience some redness, bruising, and sensitivity in your treatment area during this period. These symptoms should go away on their own, but we can prescribe medication to help you if they become bothersome. After two weeks, most patients return to work and resume everyday activities. To protect your incisions and maintain a steady healing process, you should avoid strenuous activity for at least three weeks or until you are completely recovered.


Your midsection will have some post-operative swelling for several months. You will not be able to see the final results of your tummy tuck until it subsides, but you will be able to see the general transformation that this treatment can have on your appearance in the meantime. Your results will be long-lasting. Maintaining a steady weight and living a healthy lifestyle will prolong them even further.

Can men receive tummy tucks?

The slimming effects of a tummy tuck are not just for women. Many men in Denver receive tummy tuck procedures to address the excess skin, fat, and tissue on their abdomen. They can provide a masculine and muscular-looking midsection for men who are willing to undergo surgery to achieve their dream body.

Can tummy tucks address excess fat?

While the removal of substantial pockets of excess fat is not an essential aspect of the tummy tuck procedure, including liposuction as a part of the treatment is very common. Within one procedure, surgeons can perform liposuction to remove excess fat while also performing tummy tuck techniques to tighten the skin of the abdomen. 

Are tummy tucks painful?

Tummy tucks are an invasive surgery, so they require downtime for recovery and may lead to some discomfort. However, we provide anesthesia to prevent any discomfort during surgery, and we can prescribe medication to alleviate discomfort during recovery. 

Can tummy tucks remove stretch marks?

To provide the best possible tightening results, surgeons do not prioritize the removal of stretch marks during tummy tuck procedures. However, if your stretch marks fall within the area of skin that your surgeon targets for removal, then they may be removed indirectly.
