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.

Survey Shows ASAPS Members Prefer Traditional Lipo

ASAPS Members Prefer Traditional LipoA survey conducted by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery examined plastic surgeons’ liposuction preferences, given the variety of techniques that can be used for the procedure. It found that over half of the 492 plastic surgeons who responded prefer suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL), which is considered traditional liposuction.

â??In a field that is so rapidly advancing, it is essential to continually evaluate new technologies and methods to ensure that we maintain the safety of our patients,â? said Jamil Ahmad, MD, lead author of the survey, which was published in the February issue of the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

Results showed that the preferred method of fat removal from most to least popular was:

  • Suction-assisted lipo (SAL) (51.4 percent)
  • Power-assisted lipo (PAL) (23.0 percent)
  • Ultrasound-assisted lipo (UAL) (20.9 percent)
  • Laser-assisted lipo (LAL) (3.9 percent)

Most of the surgeons who responded perform between 51 and 100 liposuctions per year; those surveyed have the most experience with SAL, UAL and PAL.

The surgeons had less experience with laser-assisted liposuction (12.8 percent), mesotherapy (5.7 percent), and noninvasive devices (12.8 percent). They also felt these newer fat removal technologies were associated with a disproportionately higher rate of complications compared to  more established methods.

â??Our survey found that ASAPS members tend to more frequently employ the fat removal methods that have the longest track records and the most data to support their efficacy and safety, said Ahmad. â??In the future, we may notice preferences shift as we see additional prospective data comparing techniques, and as we gain more experience with newer methods. These factors will also help us continue to improve safety-related standards of care.
