We know about Mommy Makeovers and procedures requested by moms to look refreshed and get their pre-baby appearance back…but what about dads? Turns out more and more men, particularly dads, are turning to plastic surgery for some refreshment of their own. According to a report from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of cosmetic procedures performed on men has increased by more than 325 percent since 1997. Here’s what plastic surgeons have to say about the trend.
One New York plastic surgeon says dads want plastic surgery for the same reasons moms do: to look and feel better. “There is also more competition in the workplace and dads want to look younger. Dads today are more physically fit and active. To go along with their body appearance, they want to make their face look more youthful and energetic. We are now doing our popular “Daddy Makeovers,” which include liposuction of the neck, Botox and Juvéderm for the face, and body-contouring procedures such as liposuction of the waist and love handles.”
Another major factor in the spike in male procedures has to do with technological advances in treatment offerings. You no longer have to go under the knife and be out of work for weeks in order to rejuvenate your look.
The bottom line is: “Dads are no different from moms in wanting to look and feel their best. If we can help them achieve that, then we have done our job.”
