Tummy Tuck For Men – Troy, Rochester Hills & Detroit Michigan Areas
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something that men strive for through exercise and weight control. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you may still have an abdomen that protrudes, is loose, or saggy. An abdominoplasty performed by Dr. Ellen in Birmingham, MI will help.
What Is A Tummy Tuck In Birmingham?
Dr. Ellen removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
The result is a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with your body type and weight,
Am I A Good Candidate For A Tummy Tuck?
If you are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen, and want a firmer, more attractive silhouette, and if you have realistic expectations, you are a good candidate. Dr. Ellen will discuss with you your expectations and the anticipated results of your tummy tuck during your consultation in her Birmingham, MI office.
The final results of tummy tuck surgery may be initially obscured by swelling and your inability to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete. But within a week or two, you should be standing tall and confident in your new slimmer profile.

How Long Is Recovery From A Tummy Tuck In Detroit?
During your tummy tuck recovery, Dr. Ellen may apply dressings or bandages to your incisions, and you may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to minimize swelling and support your abdomen as it heals following surgery.
Patients commonly experience areas of partial and/or complete numbness of the abdominal skin following a tummy tuck surgery. Few experience permanent loss of feeling, but it may take several months or longer for sensation to return. Rarely, areas of numbness persist. During the healing period, sensation will return from the sides of your incision, and the scar will become smaller over time.
During healing, your skin is very sensitive to the sun and can easily burn, so avoid tanning beds, hot tubs, blowing heat, such as from a hair dryer, and heating pads.
Exposure to nicotine products can delay healing, so avoid smoking, nicotine patches or gum, and other tobacco products.
