For Father's Day, consider the Daddy Makeover
June 13, 2013
Over the past few years, a new term has arisen in the world of plastic surgery - the Mommy Makeover. This phrase refers to a group of plastic surgeries - typically involving breast augmentation, skin procedures like Botox or a facelift and liposuction - used to help new mothers who are struggling to get their pre-pregnancy look back. With Father's Day around the corner, let's consider another aspect of cosmetic surgery - the Daddy Makeover.
Men's bodies may not go through the stress of actually carrying a child, but that's not to say that having children doesn't have an adverse effect on fathers' health. Even the most well-behaved children can cause stress, which in turn can lead to premature wrinkles. On top of that, raising kids leaves men with less time to hit the gym, and they'll likely be eating less-than-healthy foods as they try to keep up with their new, busy schedule. All of this can lead to a decline in men's appearances, which can cause fathers to have self-esteem issues.
Just like Mommy Makeovers, the procedures that would make up a Daddy Makeover would depend largely on the issue men wanted to target. For guys who are worried about facial lines, dermal fillers or Botox injections could help. Those who are looking for a more permanent solution may opt instead for a facelift. If wrinkles are not the issue, men can consider chemical peels or dermabrasion to address other skin woes.
Men who are suffering from a decreased metabolism may want to ask their plastic surgeon about liposuction. This procedure can treat pockets of stubborn fat around the stomach, waist, buttocks and thighs. It's also often used to treat an issue known as gynecomastia, which is the appearance of fatty tissue around the chest area.
The first step toward a Daddy Makeover is booking a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During this time, men can discuss what issues they'd like to address and learn more about the procedures that could be helpful to them.
Some men may be hesitant to go under the knife, but often, having a companion by your side during the recovery time can be comforting. For this reason, some men may want to schedule their Daddy Makeovers to coincide with their wife's Mommy Makeover.
