After Massive Weight Loss
For many who have achieved massive weight loss, excess skin is more than a cosmetic issue. If your extra skin is causing issues with hygiene, mobility, back pain, rashes, or infections, you may be eligible to have your male tummy tuck paid for by insurance.
If you suffer from these symptoms, the TOPS Houston team will work with your insurance company to see if all or part of your surgery is covered. We find that insurance companies rarely cover male liposuction or body contouring as they are considered cosmetic procedures but sometimes cover the skin removal portion of your male tummy tuck.
In some cases, weight loss is significant enough to result in excess skin that cannot be corrected by traditional male abdominoplasty. This typically happens when there is large amounts of skin around the upper abdominals or belly button area. In these cases, you might benefit from specialized tummy tucks like corset abdominoplasty or fleur de lis abdominoplasty.
Whatever your situation, your TOPS Houston plastic surgeon will work with you to determine what kind of male tummy tuck is best for you.
