Posted on April 20, 2021 in Daddy Do-Over
Typically, when you hear about plastic surgery, the procedure that usually comes to mind is a woman having liposuction or breast augmentation. However, we are seeing more and more men who are looking for procedures to help them reclaim their youthful masculinity through surgical and non-surgical means. Although not as directly as mothers, having kids affects dads, and with the stigma surrounding men getting plastic surgery falling, it is becoming increasingly popular for men to get a customized, comprehensive procedure called a “daddy do-over.”
A daddy do-over can consist of things like tummy tucks, male breast reduction, and body contouring. Some men decide to combine body procedures with facial ones like hair transplants, eyelid surgery, and neck lifts. All of these can help boost confidence and make a dad look years younger than they are.
What is a Daddy Do-Over?
Just like a mommy makeover, a daddy do-over is not a specified plastic surgery procedure, but rather a completely customizable set of procedures to address men’s specific needs. Most often, it includes a tummy tuck surgery to create flatter, more defined abs, but can include facial procedures and non-surgical ones as well for more conservative, natural-looking changes.
Here we’ll discuss several possible techniques and tools that can help men achieve a more contoured appearance through surgery.
Liposuction and CoolSculpting
Liposuction can help rid the body of unwanted fat in areas that aren’t responsive to diet and exercise. Liposuction for men can help achieve a slimmer waist, leaner thighs, or a less flabby abdomen, depending on your specific concerns. Over 30,000 liposuction procedures were performed in America on men in the last year, proving that this procedure isn’t just for women.
CoolSculpting is also a favorite to get rid of unwanted fat without having to undergo surgery. This process freezes fat cells and makes them die off, resulting in a 25% reduction in fat in the treated area. Although not able to achieve the dramatic results that liposuction can, this procedure requires no downtime to recover.
Some men develop breast tissue or sagging pecs as they age, which is known as gynecomastia. This condition can cause the breasts to develop glandular breast tissue and/or excess fat due to the imbalance of hormones in the body, or simply because of age and weight gain. Male breast reduction surgery is a popular surgery among men who are looking for a more masculine chest appearance.
While women tend to seek out tummy tucks more often than men, the truth is that tummy tucks are great for both men and women. For example, if a man has had extreme weight loss, a tummy tuck can help tighten the abdominal muscles and get rid of excess skin. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a highly popular procedure among people who want a slimmer waistline or firmer abdomen.
Men can start to lose their natural head hair as early as their 20s, making hair restoration solutions highly popular among those seeking help from cosmetic surgeons. Fortunately, there is a procedure that can be done to help to encourage hair restoration. NeoGraft can help rejuvenate hair follicles that have gone dormant or slowed the growth of hair by transplanting individual healthy follicles into areas of thinning or bald hair.
Men who suffer from moderate to deep wrinkles on their face may decide that they want to rejuvenate their face. A facelift is the most effective way to get rid of sagging skin on the lower face as well as tighten the underlying structures to provide a more youthful appearance. If also considering a surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck, Dr. Ellen Janetzke can combine procedures into a single surgery, decreasing the overall cost and downtime of having them performed separately.
