Banish “Dad Bod” with a Tummy Tuck

You’ve probably heard the term “Dad Bod” before. And we all know a dad who has the typical Dad Bod – you know, lean and mean all over, except for that darned pot belly. You don’t have to be a dad to have a “Dad Bod.” Even single, young men can get them, which makes it even more frustrating. But thankfully, men can undergo the best cosmetic approach to banish dad bod once and for all. Dr. Flugstad can perform a tummy tuck procedure designed especially for men, to help them get rid of their dad bods and achieve the body they have always wanted.

What Is a Tummy Tuck?

The Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure that reshapes the abdomen for a tighter, toned tummy. The ideal contour is achieved by tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess abdominal skin. Depending on the patient’s case, a custom tummy tuck approach will be taken to get individualized results. Complete tummy tucks, mini tummy tucks, and tummy tucks with or without liposuction can be performed depending on the patient’s needs.

Who Is It For?

The Tummy Tuck is perfect for anyone who has excess fat and skin in the midsection of the body that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise. Abdominoplasty can eliminate stubborn fat directly in problem areas like a potbelly and make the patient significantly slimmer. Though the tummy tuck isn’t a procedure for weight loss, it can still considerably flatten the tummy and slim the waistline.

Full Tummy Tuck

A full tummy tuck is usually performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the abdominal muscles are tightened, liposuction is performed to remove excess fat, and the loose skin is removed. Liposuction of other areas such as the lower back/hips can be done simultaneously to further enhance the result.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini-tummy tuck can be performed for men who need less skin removed. Liposuction may still be performed, and the abdominal muscles may be tightened, if necessary.

What to Expect

  • Swelling in the treated areas may last up to six weeks.
  • Tummy tuck results are permanent if weight is maintained after the procedure
  • Typically, it takes 6 months to see the final outcome of the tummy tuck procedure
