However, it is becoming more acceptable for men to go under the knife. In 2015 alone, the number of men who had cosmetic surgery was over one million according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. You may have heard of the procedure the “mommy makeover” which helps women restore their shape after childbirth. Surgeons can address issues concerning the breasts, buttocks, abdomen, genitalia, and waist.

What is the Daddy Do-Over Procedure?
As men get older, their bodies demand more care. Daddy Do Overs can consist of several procedures to rejuvenate the face and body. Dermal fillers can smooth the jawline, eliminate wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of a double chin. Non-invasive smart liposuction treatments can remove love handles and access fat around the abdomen. Some dads may need body contouring to define the chest and waist. Below is a list of some of the different types of all-inclusive Daddy Do-Over procedures to choose from.
Male Breast Reduction
When excess fat deposits accumulate in the chest area, it is called gynecomastia. Your surgeon can make small incisions and suction out the fat via liposuction. The result is a tighter feeling chest that looks more firm and contoured.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The stomach area can be the hardest area to lose body fat. Diet and exercise alone may not help especially as we age. Tummy tuck surgery is the process of removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen. The procedure has also been known to restore separated or weakened muscles.
Liposuction contours various areas of the body resulting in a more attractive physique. It can be performed on the legs, chest, face, abdomen, arms, buttocks, and thighs.
Men can begin to look tired continuously similar to women as they age. Not getting enough hours of sleep or a busy work schedule can take a toll on the face. A brow lift is an excellent way to rejuvenate the upper portion of the face and reduce puffiness under the eyes. A non-surgical brow lift can take only 15-20 minutes with no downtime using dermal fillers. If you choose for the surgical version that is more permanent, the procedure can take 1-2 hours.
