Daddy do-over Charlotte
Women who have finished having children may choose to undergo a “mommy makeover.” This is a set of procedures designed to address the changes that a woman’s body undergoes as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
However, it’s not just moms who commonly experience changes in their bodies after having kids. Dads may also find their bodies changing during this period. Although men’s bodies don’t undergo the stresses of pregnancy and breastfeeding, dads do experience many changes when they have young children. With less time to themselves, dads may have less time to spend at the gym and to pay attention to their diets. Lack of sleep and increased stress can also take a toll on the body. In addition, many new fathers are in their 30s or 40s, and are experiencing the natural changes that aging brings to the male body. All of this can result in a man finding himself with an unwanted “dad bod.”
For dads who would like to address these issues, cosmetic medicine offers options. A “daddy do-over” uses a combination of surgical and nonsurgical procedures to help a man return to a more youthful physique or appearance.
What procedures are included in a daddy do-over?
As with a mommy makeover, the specific combination of procedures used in a daddy do-over can vary. It will depend on the man’s current body situation and his desires for his appearance. Certain procedures are more commonly included as part of a daddy do-over. In most cases, all of the procedures can be completed at the same time, so that a man experiences a complete rejuvenation of his appearance without the hassle of multiple recovery periods.
Unwanted fat can accumulate in a variety of areas around the body, due to aging, stress, lack of sleep, and genetics. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes pockets of excess fat.
It’s important to recognize that liposuction is not intended as a method of overall weight loss, but rather to remove particular pockets of unwanted fat tissue. It’s recommended that a man be at a stable and healthy weight before he has liposuction.
A flat and toned abdomen is highly prized by both men and women. Many men find themselves with excess skin and other tissue in the abdomen. Although separation of the two halves of the abdominal muscle is less common in men than in women, this can also be an issue for men, and results in a belly pooch that can’t be addressed through exercise.
An abdominoplasty procedure, also known as a tummy tuck, helps to create a flat appearance of the abdomen by removing excess tissue and tightening the remaining skin. If the two halves of the abdominal muscle are separated, this will also be addressed.
Male breast surgery
For many men, accumulation of fat tissue on the chest can make it look like a man has breasts. In some cases, glandular tissue also grows in this area. This is called gynecomastia. It can happen because of hormonal issues, steroid use, or can simply be related to the aging process. Genetics strongly influence which men will experience gynecomastia.
In some cases, if the condition is caused only by fat tissue, liposuction of the chest is enough to remove the excess tissue. If there is also glandular tissue present, then a breast reduction surgery will be needed to remove this.
Some men also find that they have trouble getting defined pectoral muscles, no matter how much weight they lift. This is simply a matter of physiology. Implants are available that can give the look of a more defined and masculine chest, which can help to restore a man’s confidence in his body.
Neck liposuction or Kybella
Many dads find themselves with a double chin. There are a few different methods for addressing this. Liposuction of the neck may be used to remove the excess fat tissue. Another option is Kybella, which is a nonsurgical solution to the problem of excess fat around the neck. This is a medication that is injected into the area, and causes the breakdown of fat cells. The fat will be naturally reabsorbed by the body over the following weeks.
