What is Male After Weight Loss Surgery?
Male after weight loss surgery, also commonly known as male fitness surgery or male skin removal after weight loss is a general term for any male plastic surgery procedures done specifically to remove loose and hanging skin after significant weight loss.
Does Exercise or Anything Else Help Tighten Skin After Weight Loss?
Being overweight places enormous stress on the skin. Once stretched past a certain point, the cells responsible for keeping skin firm and tight become damaged. Unfortunately, overstretched skin will never have the ability to snap back like it once did, so no amount of exercise, creams, or medications will restore skin elasticity. Men who have shed a large amount of weight are typically left with excess skin. Often, the quicker the weight is lost, the more pronounced the excess skin. At minimum, this loose, droopy skin effects self-confidence. But, more often than not extra skin on a man is an impediment to exercise, continued weight loss, and can even become irritated or cause physical pain. Eliminating excess, loose skin with male after weight loss surgery is the only option to trim your appearance and complete your life-changing journey.
What are the Different Options for Male After Weight Loss Surgery?
After weight loss surgery for men can target a certain area, but often involves a combination of male plastic surgery procedures to address multiple areas of concern. After a detailed examination and review of medical history, a surgical plan is developed and tailored to each individual’s goals.
Common male plastic surgery procedures performed after significant weight loss include:
- Male Tummy Tuck (male abdominoplasty)– to remove extra abdominal skin and tighten the muscles of the abdomen.
- Male Buttock Lift– to remove extra skin of the lower back and love handles, plus lift sagging skin of the buttock and outer thighs.
- Male 360 Lift– to remove extra skin along the entire circumferential waist. This procedure is also known as a male lower body lift because it includes a male tummy tuck, male flankplasty (excision of the love handles) and male buttock lift.
- Male Liposuction– to remove any areas of stubborn fat remaining after weight loss.
- Gynecomastia Excision– to remove firm glandular tissue from the chest and reduce puffy or pointy nipples.
- Male Breast Reduction– to remove excess fat and skin from the chest resulting in a flat male chest.
Lateral Chest Excision– to eliminate fat and sagging skin under the armpit.
- Arm lift (Brachioplasty)– to remove fat and sagging skin to define the upper arm and biceps muscle.
- Thigh lift– to remove skin and fat from the inner thighs.
- Male Face lift– to lift sagging cheek skin and restore healthy volume appropriate for the male face.
- Male Neck lift– to remove excess neck skin (the “turkey neck”) and define the male jawline.
Who is a Good Candidate for Male After Weight Loss Surgery?
A good candidate for a male after weight loss procedure is a man with moderate to severe loose and hanging skin that is just physically and emotionally tired of dealing with the extra skin. Weight should be relatively steady for 6 months and with-in 15%-20% of your ideal target weight. Conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea or other related health concerns must be monitored and well controlled to allow for optimal recovery and healing.
Is it Safe to Have Multiple Male After Weight Loss Procedures Done at the Same Time?
Yes, it is safe and quite common to do multiple procedures during the same surgery. However, you never want to do so much at once that you exceed your body’s ability to heal properly. Since male after weight loss surgery can cover several large and distinct areas, it is common to break-up the overall plan into two or three surgeries with each focusing on a distinct area of the body, extremities and/or face. For example, a common plan may be to address the core with a 360 body lift (abdomen, flanks, back) in the first procedure, the chest, arms and thighs in a second procedure and the face and neck with a third procedure. Staging the skin removal and male contouring procedures in this manner will optimize recovery and ultimately provide you with the best end result.
What is Recovery Like Following a Male After Weight Loss Surgery?
Since multiple areas are normally addressed at one time, the majority of contouring procedures are performed under general anesthesia to allow surgical efficiency and strict monitoring to ensure patient safety. Surgical time will vary based on the surgical plan. Due to the amount of work done, your initial mobility will be slow and somewhat limited though most patients are independently mobile in a couple days. You may return to in-person work with light duty in about 2 weeks, but will need to refrain from extended travel, exercise and strenuous activities for 6 weeks.
How Long Do I Have to Wait In-Between Male After Weight Loss Surgery Procedures?
In general, a minimum of three months is needed between stages of surgery to optimize healing and replenish your body’s energy reserves before proceeding with the next stage of male after weight loss surgery.
