We all know the negative effects that pregnancy and childbirth can have on a woman’s body. And to counter these physical changes, the world of plastic surgery has come up with Mummy Makeover, a combination of breast, body and face procedures to help these women restore their pre-pregnancy body.

The Mummy Makeover has been well-described by plastic surgeons worldwide, but specially for this father’s day, some Manly Makeover information might be more appropriate. Lets explore a new topic today—the Daddy Makeover.
Dads too, deserve their own combination of cosmetic procedures to help them restore that youthful, more attractive body they once had. Here is a combination of Daddy Makeover procedures to help dads redefine their masculinity:
GYNECOMASTIA SURGERY (MALE BREAST REDUCTION)
Enlarged male breasts, also called gynecomastia, occur when excess deposits of localized fat accumulate in the chest area. Through tiny incisions, liposuction is used to suction out fatty tissue, while excess skin is removed and tightened to leave the chest firmer and more contoured. With advances in medical techniques, this condition can be treated in a minimally invasive manner with minimal downtime.
ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCK)
Men who have hanging skin folds over the abdomen, hips and flanks and want to improve their shape are good candidates for abdominoplasty. Since the midsection is often one of the hardest areas to eliminate fat through diet and exercise alone, many turn to abdominoplasty for help. Excess skin and fat tissues are removed, while weakened abdominal muscles are tightened to create a masculine profile that is firmer and more defined.
Dr Marco recommends men to go for endoscopic or robotic tummy tuck because men do not usually have excess skin to excise; their condition is usually due to the weakened muscle underneath the skin.
One very important fact to remember about liposuction is that it is a contouring tool, not a weight loss tool. Dr Marco strongly encourages anyone who is considering liposuction to go for diet and exercise first. If that doesn’t help achieve the body you want, then liposuction would be a reasonable adjunct to improve the body’s contour. It can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, abdomen, thighs, arms, chest, and legs.
Hair loss or thinning hair is a man’s worst nightmare as it eats away at their self-esteem. Thankfully, modern hair transplant techniques like Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) can help to restore thinning hair by redistributing permanent and healthy hairs from the back of the head to the more needy areas such as the front and top. This technique is generally performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with almost no downtime. The results are permanent but it takes about 3 months for new hair to be seen.
OTHER FACIAL SURGERIES
Dads can also enjoy other facial procedures such as Botox, dermal filler injections or fat grafting to battle unwanted signs of aging in the face. Or if they are looking for more a permanent solution, they may opt instead for facelifts, neck lifts, brow lifts, eyelid lifts, and rhinoplasty. Ulthera© is a non-invasive option for lifting and tightening the skin. It is vital for men to understand that these procedures are modified for men to create a masculine look, as men tend to have lower brows, stronger chins, larger noses and heavier eyelids then women. All these male traits are considered carefully when choosing male plastic surgery.
If you are ready for a more rejuvenated look, there is a whole spectrum of procedures available to you as a man seeking plastic surgery. I would like to end by asking you a question this Fathers Day “Are you ready for your new look dads?”
