One of the most common plastic surgery techniques among women is the Mommy Makeover. Women who have experienced pregnancy and childbirth often find their body has gone through a lot of havoc. Post-pregnancy women are sometimes left with a body that is no longer the same as it was before. A Mommy Makeover involves the combination of procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, breast augmentation surgery, and breast lift surgery to restore a woman’s breasts and body. However, plastic surgery isn’t only limited to women or mothers. Some men may let their body go after becoming a father. It isn’t often talked about, but men have body insecurities too. It seems there has been a rising trend in plastic surgery for men, and the term “Daddy Do-Over” has been coined. By combining different plastic surgery procedures, the male physique can be enhanced. What is the Daddy Do-Over?
Common Male Body Concerns
More men are undergoing plastic surgery. In fact, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery 2016 statistics, men made up close to the 200,000 surgical procedures performed. A Daddy Do-Over involves the combination of plastic surgery procedures to improve the male face and/or body. What are men most concerned about correcting?
Stubborn, Excess Fat
Even with a diet and exercise regimen, sometimes there are areas of stubborn pockets of fat that will not go away. Many men carry unwanted fat in the abdomen, neck, upper arms, and back. Liposuction is an ideal procedure for targeting fatty deposits while sculpting the body. Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri and Dr. Onelio Garcia use power-assisted liposuction (PAL) or the VASERlipo® technique. VASERlipo® uses ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat before removal. A small, hollow tube (cannula) that is hooked up to a vacuum device is used to suction the fat and sculpt the curves of the body.
An Undefined Abdomen
Both men and women struggle with the abdominal area. Some men who have experienced massive weight loss may find they are left with pockets of fat and loose skin in the abdomen. Other men develop weakened abdominal muscles and sagging skin due to aging. Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck surgery, can be performed to address the abdomen and remove unwanted skin and tighten lax muscles. Excess fat and skin are removed, and the remaining skin is reshaped and tightened.
Tired, Aged Eyes
The eyes are one of the most notable areas of the face. They represent a person’s age and mood. When a man has wrinkles or sagging around the eye area, it can make him look old, tired, and worn out. Eyelid surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure among men and can provide a significant improvement in the entire facial structure. Upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both can be performed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the eyes. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the remaining tissues are reshaped into a more youthful position.
An Unflattering Nasal Structure
The nose is a central feature of the face. A nose that is too big or too wide, or large, flaring nostrils can be unappealing for a man’s nasal structure. The nose is meant to blend in with the other facial features, not stand out. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, can be performed to alter the shape and/or size of the nose to create a more flattering facial appearance.
