It’s no secret that the vast majority of plastic surgery patients are women and that men do not have the same societal pressure on their looks as women. But, both men and women want to look youthful and feel good about their appearance. It’s just that the society used to emphasize not caring about looks in men. That is changing.
More men than ever sought aesthetic treatment last year. Men made up 40% of all breast reduction cases, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Plastic surgery reality shows have increased public acceptance of cosmetic surgery and a new generation of non-surgical aesthetic treatments have made it easier than ever to create time in a busy schedule to tackle problem areas. In fact, men looking to revitalize their looks are getting their own marketing term: Daddy Do-Over.
Move Over Mommy, It’s Daddy’s Turn
Like the Mommy Make-Over, the Daddy Do-Over is a carefully prepared treatment plan that makes full use of the patient’s time in office. A typical combination of procedures performed in one surgical period is gynecomastia surgery and liposuction of the love handles. Some have added in an eyelid lift to add a refreshed appearance to a newly contoured torso. But, the defining feature of Daddy Do-Over is its flexibility in options for each patient.
Daddy Do-Over, the Non-Surgical Approach
For busy fathers, non-surgical treatments are an attractive option as they require significantly less downtime. BOTOX and CoolSculpting offer similar benefits in terms of a refreshed facial appearance and body contouring, but the outcome is more subtle. For some men, a subtle refresh is just enough and perfect for their busy schedule.
Minimally-Invasive Options for Men
One of the most common concerns among men is under the chin fat and loose neck muscles. ThermiTight is a minimally invasive treatment designed to treat the area under the chin. Through gentle heating, collagen production is stimulated which causes the skin to tighten. The heating also helps reduce localized fat deposits.
Laser Skin Resurfacing can significantly improve the tone and texture of skin in one treatment with minimal downtime. The Pixel Perfect system used by the Carney Center also offers faster recovery than traditional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments.
