The cost of tummy tuck surgery varies according to several factors. However, pricing for a male tummy tuck typically starts at $11,999.
While light activities can be resumed within a day or two, it usually takes several weeks for patients to fully recover from a male tummy tuck procedure.
The Toronto Plastic Surgeons can perform the tummy tuck surgery in approximately 3 hours. Most patients stay overnight in our surgical facility and will receive post-operative instructions from their doctors.
Although cosmetic surgery is sometimes thought to be a women’s only affair, the desire to maintain a good physical appearance is not defined by gender. Men experience the same societal expectation to keep up a desirable physical appearance that women do.
Take, for example, the male tummy tuck. Also known as a belt lift, the male tummy tuck is a procedure specifically designed for men who have stretched abdominal skin that does not bounce back. This loose skin is typically caused by significant weight loss and can seriously affect a man’s body image and self-confidence. By removing the extra skin in the abdominal area, a male tummy tuck will provide men with a leaner abdominal region and a more desirable physical appearance.
While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, proper physical health and realistic expectations can make the recovery process more seamless. Fundamentally, a candidate for a male tummy tuck is someone who would like to remove excess skin around the waistline without affecting the belly button or abdominal muscles.
We invite all those interested in this procedure to reach out to Toronto Plastic Surgeons for a consultation.
By removing excess skin and improving a patient’s overall shape, a male tummy tuck will boost self-confidence and self-worth.
Excess skin may make it difficult for men to shop for well-fitted clothing. A male tummy tuck will certainly help alleviate those issues, thereby granting you more clothing options.
A male tummy tuck will help you achieve the body of your dreams by improving your waistline in a way that cannot be achieved through diet and exercise alone.
Excess skin at the waistline can be an uncomfortable affair. By improving the tone and shape of the waistline, a male tummy tuck can increase comfort and mobility.
Like every surgery, a male tummy tuck comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted tummy tuck surgeon. The team at Toronto Plastic Surgeons has years of experience performing male tummy tucks. Significant complications are uncommon and, in the rare event they occur, are expertly managed.

Prior to your surgery, the area of planned excision and lift is marked out. Then, local anesthetic or IV sedation is administered to ensure that the procedure is completely painless. General anesthesia might be used if the patient is combining the male tummy tuck with liposuction or another procedure.
During the procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will make a hidden incision above the groin and pubic hair, so that any scarring will not be visible in clothing following the procedure. Then, the physicians will lift the abdominal skin and trim unwanted tissue, before eventually pulling the skin up and suturing the incision.
To ensure a successful surgery, the doctor will advise that you follow certain preparations in the weeks leading up to your procedure date:
Following your male tummy tuck/belt lift procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will give you detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a seamless recovery. When putting on clothes after the procedure, patients will immediately notice tighter skin and a smoother body profile. Please keep in mind that you will be required to wear a tight-fitting compression garment for several weeks, as its presence will reduce swelling and tighten the skin.
After Surgery: Patients must wear a compression garment for 20-22 hours a day for the first 3-6 weeks.
Week 1: Patients may return to work, as well as resume engaging in light physical activity.
Week 2: Mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling should subside completely.
Week 6: Patients will be able to resume strenuous physical activity, and the results of the procedure will become apparent.
Due to the anesthesia administered during the procedure, the patient will not feel any pain during the surgery. While it is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. In fact, this discomfort can be easily controlled with oral medication prescribed by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons.
If the patient maintains a healthy diet and proper exercise routines, the results of a male tummy tuck procedure will last for many years. However, as the skin ages, it loses its elasticity causing the abdominal area to sag once again. For this reason, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons offer several body contouring procedures to ensure optimal results that combat the aging process and maintain tight skin over the years.
Men who have lost a significant amount of weight and have loose abdominal skin can also develop rectus abdominus muscle separation and weakness. The rectus abdominis muscle can be repaired and brought together tightly in the midline during a male tummy tuck/belt lift surgery. Post-operatively, all patients are offered EMSculpt and Evolve Tite treatments to enhance their muscle toning.
A male tummy tuck is generally well tolerated. However, it is a surgical procedure, and there are some risks and side effects—including pain. If you are planning to have a tummy tuck, you should be prepared for one to two months of recovery, and you may experience pain throughout this time.
