What Is Male Abdominoplasty?

Male Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck,” is a surgical procedure that addresses the loosening of abdominal tissues in male patients. This condition can be caused by factors such as weight fluctuations or genetics. Dr. Veerle Rotsaert, a renowned plastic surgeon in London, specialises in this procedure, offering her expertise and attention to detail to help patients achieve a sculpted and toned abdomen.

During Male Abdominoplasty surgery, excess skin and fat are removed from the belly area. Additionally, the underlying “six-pack” muscles of the abdomen are tightened, providing a more defined and muscular appearance. Dr. V pays meticulous attention to the muscular substructure, ensuring that the results not only enhance aesthetics but also improve overall musculature.

To ensure optimal outcomes, it is essential to understand that Male Abdominoplasty is not a substitute for weight loss. Patients should have a stable and sustainable weight for a significant period before considering the procedure. As with any aesthetic surgery, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert adheres to strict criteria, and she does not operate on individuals with a BMI higher than 30. It is also crucial to refrain from smoking for at least six weeks prior to surgery to minimise risks and promote optimal healing.

Dr. V specialises in performing a drainless abdominoplasty, which enhances patient comfort during the recovery process. In certain cases, liposuction may be incorporated into the procedure to address excess fat deposits in the abdominal area. If you have good skin laxity but are dissatisfied with the appearance and feel of your tummy, Dr. Veerle Rotsaert can discuss the option of liposuction alone during your consultation.

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
