Male tummy tucks on the riseWednesday, February 15th, 2012, 1:29 am
While many may believe that men are more impervious to body image issues than women, a recent trend seems to indicate otherwise. According to statistics provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, between 2000 and 2010 the number of men undergoing abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck, has doubled.
Many men and women globally are becoming more educated about the correlation between combining a well-balanced diet and regular workout regimen for increased longevity, health and happiness. With the increase in men taking action towards weight comes the effects of weight loss aftermath- excess skin. While excess skin is not a medical condition and is preferred over the burden of the extra weight & health risks, it is often undesirable. Some men who are concerned about the appearance of their midsection may have tried over the counter products that advertise their capability to give users a six pack. Most consumers will find these ointment or creams are often ineffective and may lead men to seek out more permanent options like the tummy tuck!
