Having a baby can result in many unwanted physical changes to the body. Stress compounded with time constraints and exhaustion can be a bad combination for any woman trying to regain and maintain a slim, toned physique following childbirth. To counteract these effects, the “Mommy Makeover” was born. But what about fathers who have gone from hard bodies to softies while raising kids? That’s where the “Daddy Do-Over” comes in.
Like a mommy makeover, a daddy do-over is a combination of cosmetic procedures performed in a single surgery. A daddy do-over usually combines a male tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with male breast reduction. Both procedures trim excess skin and fat that cannot be eliminated through regular diet and exercise. The end result – tighter abs and more contoured chest muscles.
Cosmetic Surgery Options for Men
Though the field of cosmetic surgery is still largely dominated by female patients, plastic surgeons have reported a steady increase in male procedures over the past several years. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 9% of all surgical procedures in 2011 were elected by male patients – a 121% increase since 1997.
The same taboos that existed 10 years ago no longer plague male patients and the desire to look youthful and fit is just as important for men. In addition to male tummy tucks and male breast reduction some of the fastest growing cosmetic procedures for men include liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), eyelid surgery and facelifts.
Dads who are considering cosmetic surgery should always seek out the consultation of a skilled cosmetic surgeon. Learn more about tummy tucks, male breast reduction and other popular daddy do-over procedures in New Haven.
