FAQs on Abominoplasty for Men
Should I get liposuction or abdominoplasty?
Liposuction (traditional liposuction, VASER lipo, Smart lipo) is effective on small pockets of fat. However, liposuction cannot tighten large amounts of skin, remove skin, or repair stretched muscles. If you just have a little excess fat, liposuction might be for you. However, if you want to remove excess skin and tighten your abdominal muscles (leaving you with six-pack abs)abdominoplasty is the answer. During a consultation in our Columbus Ohio office, Dr. Houser can recommend the procedure that will give you the results that you are looking for.
What is the recovery time for abdominoplasty?
Recovery from abdominoplasty is about 2 weeks. Most men who work in an office are able to return to work within a week—sometimes sooner. If you have a more physically active job, it could be two weeks.
Is abdominoplasty an in-patient or out-patient procedure?
The majority of abdominoplasty surgeries are outpatient procedures in our AAAASF accredited facility. Occasionally, other factors require abdominoplasty to be performed in the hospital. Dr. Houser can discuss this with you at your consultation.
