Daddy Do-Over: the Male Cosmetic Surgery Equivalent of a Mommy Makeover

Daddy Do-overMen are seeking body contouring and facial procedures to boost confidence physically and to compete for career advancement. A “Daddy Do-Over” body contouring rejuvenation is similar to a “Mommy Makeover” in that both terms refer to a combination of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Facial procedures and treatments such as nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, and Botox are also popular.

For any cosmetic surgery, the best plastic surgeons in the Dallas Fort Worth area can be found in the Dallas Society of Plastic Surgeons member directory.

Men do not go through the same physical changes as women experience as a consequence of childbirth. However, new fathers typically slow down their lifestyle which tends to lead to poor dietary choices, less exercise, and less sleep. This impacts their ability to maintain a younger looking physique. Men tend to notice these body changes in their 30s and 40s which is when they desire a “Daddy Do-Over” for body contouring.

To lessen the appearance of the “dad bod,” the most popular body contouring surgical procedures performed on men are liposuction and male breast reduction (Gynecomastia). The liposuction procedure removes excess fat deposits which allows a plastic surgeon to slim and reshape thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, chest area, chin, neck, upper arms, back, calves, and ankles. Liposuction can be performed alone or with other cosmetic procedures. Male breast reduction may involve liposuction alone but often includes excision of excess glandular breast tissue and sometimes skin.

The most popular facial procedures for men are rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery. Virtual meetings on Zoom have spotlighted facial flaws and created the desire to improve appearances. Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” by patients, is when a surgeon reshapes and sizes the nose to provide facial balance and symmetry, or to correct impaired breathing. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery on the upper lids, lower lids, or both, can rejuvenate the area surrounding eyes to address the droopiness or loose skin, fine wrinkles, puffiness, or bags under the eyes. Botox and filler injections are also popular for reducing the signs of aging around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, and lips.

Hair transplantation is the fifth most popular procedure requested by men. Recent innovations in hair transplant and restoration methods provide men and women the ability to have more natural looking, fuller heads of hair.

Scheduling a cosmetic consultation with a plastic surgeon can help you decide on which procedures or treatments are best for your specific needs and desires.

The path to board-certification extends over an additional two-year period. Following formal education, they are required to pass both written and oral examinations with review of their patient cases. Therefore, you can trust that board-certified plastic surgeons are held to a high standard of ethics and safety.
