Why Would Men Get Tummy Tuck Operations?

Men, just like women, may undergo tummy tucks (also known as abdominoplasty) for a variety of reasons. Based on information from the Mayo Clinic, extreme weight loss, aging or heredity can lead to excess skin and fat around the stomach area that diet and exercise can't fully address.

Is Scarring Common After a Tummy Tuck?

Yes, scarring post a tummy tuck is quite common since it is, after all, a surgical procedure. However, the appearance of scars can differ from person to person based on their skin's response to the surgery, the surgeon's skills, post-operative care, and genetics.

Steps to Reduce Appearance of Tummy Tuck Scars

After presenting you with the facts, we're sure you're looking for practical solutions. The good news is, we've got you covered. Here's a step-by-step guide on managing tummy tuck scars after surgery.

1. Keep the Scar Clean and Hydrated

First things first, make sure you keep the scar clean, dry and hydrated. For this, our Recovery Body Wash works wonders. It removes bacteria, doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils, and locks in moisture.

2. Protect from Sun Exposure

Exposing the scar to the sun can darken it, making it more noticeable. So when stepping out, ensure you're using a good quality SPF to shield your skin from harmful sun rays.

3. Apply a Scar and Stretch Mark Cream

Our Scar and Stretch Mark cream is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, and it aids in balancing uneven skin tone, reducing discoloration, improving skin elasticity, and helping to smooth dry, rough patches.

Can I Prevent Scars from Forming?

While it's tough to prevent scars entirely - especially with major surgeries - there are a few measures you can take for minimal scarring. They range from closely following pre- and post-care instructions, keeping the incision site clean, avoiding nicotine and excessive alcohol intake, and eating a balanced diet to help your body recover.

When Should I Seek Medical Help?

If your scars worsen over time or show signs of infection such as redness, swelling, pain, or discharge, seek immediate medical help. Additionally, remember that regular check-ins with your doctor are crucial.
