Just as women can turn to a suite of procedures known as the ‘Mommy Makeover’, more men are embracing their own set of treatments – the ‘Daddy-Do-Over’ – to boost their confidence and improve their physical appearance.
A new report from ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) reveals that more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men last year alone, representing a 29% increase since 2000. Male use of fillers has increased 101% since that year.
The ‘Daddy-Do-Over’ consists of surgical and non-surgical body contouring and facial procedures that are typically performed in a single surgery. Due to this rising trend, plastic surgery is becoming a common Father's Day request, as more men consider a surgical assist to enhance their physique and fend off the ‘dad bod’ for a while longer.
"Obviously, men don't go through the same physical changes that women experience during pregnancy and post-pregnancy, but their lifestyle does change, which can impact their appearance," says ASPS president, Dr Alan Matarasso. "Diet and exercise patterns fluctuate, and they don't sleep as much. Men notice their body changes due to ageing and parenting, and it starts to look completely different in their 30s and 40s.”
Nearly half a million botulinum toxin procedures were performed on men last year, and more than 100,000 men had filler injections to reduce the signs of aging. Dr Matarasso says male patients today embrace non-surgical and minimally-invasive procedures to the same degree as female patients.
