New “Daddy Do-Over” Procedure for Busy Dads

Motherhood often results in a number of unwelcome permanent physical changes to the body. Stress compounded with time constraints and exhaustion can be a bad combination for any woman trying to maintain a slim, toned physique. 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 board certified plastic surgeon.

Plastic Surgery for Men Gaining Momentum in Lagging Job Economy

plastic surgery menAt one time, plastic surgery for men came with a stigma, but not anymore. At least according to Dr. Bruce Kraemer, chief of plastic surgery at Saint Louis University Hospital, who says that more and more men are seeking out plastic surgery procedures to stay competitive in a gloomy job market.

“If people are concerned about job retention, if you look around the table and you feel like you’re the oldest, sleepiest looking one, perhaps, from your facial expression changes—we can do things for that,” said Dr. Kraemer.

Kraemer says he sees men from various vocations seeking facial rejuvenation procedures such as eyebrow lifts to give them an edge in the workplace. Heâ??s also seen men in traditionally very masculine career fields turning to plastic surgery to secure their jobs.

“When the police department started requiring officers to wear a bullet proof vest, we saw a number of officers come in who were individuals who had collections around their middle that made it hard to wear their bullet proof vest,” Kraemer said.

Dr. Kraemer states that he performs various cosmetic procedures for men, ranging from nose jobs to neck lifts and everything in between. And while most men appear to be choosing plastic surgery for job security, he also sees men seeking out plastic surgery for purely cosmetic reasons.

Plastic surgery for men doesn’t appear to be waning in popularity anytime soon. The U.S. has seen a steady increase of plastic surgery for men over the past 10 years. In 2010 alone, nearly 12.6 million men elected cosmetic procedures, a 10 percent increase from the year 2000.
