I am researching the best fat removal procedure for my husband and want to know if lipo, tummy tuck or any of the noninvasive fat removal procedures will work/are best. He's a big guy (ex athlete) and has stomach fat he wants removed that has been hard to get rid of with just diet and exercise. What are the factors in determining which is the best option?
Thank you for your question. This is not an easy question to answer without seeing your husband. The beauty of plastic surgery is its customized to each individual. The best way to to find what is best for your husband is to visit a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area. They will evaluate him and give his the best options for his body. Best of luck to you.
Thanks for your question
Your husband would need an in person consultation with a plastic surgeon to determine which procedures are best for him. He may be a candidate for liposuction, Abdominoplasty or both. Also he may need to lose more weight prior to any procedures as men tend to carry a lot of their fat intrabdominally around the internal organs. That fat cannot be removed.
Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine which procedures are best to achieve your goals.
Good questions, but the answer depends on what his goals are and what is seen during an in person physical examination. We offer nonsurgical fat reduction, liposuction, and tummy tucks based on each persons individual expectations, body fat distribution, and skin quality.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. I would recommend seeking out in-person examination by an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon to get the best advice. Treatment will depend on the exact location of your husband's excess fat - visceral or just beneath the skin, while the extent will determine surgical versus less invasive methods. Hope this helps.
While an in-person consultation is always best, since you mention your husband is an ex-athlete I will assume he has no dramatically hanging abdominal skin from massive weight loss and has kept himself in good shape. That being the case I suggest the following: 1) 360 Lipo- tumescent lipo of entire abdomen, spare tire, love handles, flanks, lower and upper back. This will give him the “chiseled “ look that most men want. 2) NO tummy tuck- who wants a two foot long scar with dog ears? 3) NO non-invasive work such as cool sculpting- Surgeon typically gives this job to sexiest secretary. While your husband may not see any results he won’t mind the fee. I charge $3,000 for 360 Lipo under general anesthesia and this includes cell saver (extracts blood from aspirated fat and returns it to you) and TXA infusion which lowers blood loss during lipo by 37%. Good Luck!
