Gynecomastia is Incorporated Into the “Daddy Makeover”
One of the most patient pleasing cosmetic surgical procedures for women is the “mommy makeover.” The mommy makeover is a combination of procedures to help women get back in shape after they have finished having children. The combination usually includes an abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, some liposuction, and breast surgery that could be breast augmentation with or without a breast lift, or for some, breast reduction surgery. Childbirth, weight gain and weight loss and even aging can make it almost impossible to get great results from diet and exercise alone.
With newer technology and surgical techniques, longer surgeries that combine procedures are safe and continue to gain popularity. When procedures are combined, the patient saves in time off work, time for recovery and even save money.
Cosmetic surgery has become an accepted practice for men, with the percentage of procedures increasing each year. Men have begun to take advantage of combining surgeries just as women have been doing. For men, they may find that gaining and losing weight has compromised their skin elasticity, or aging makes the middle age spread difficult to reduce. As men age, they may find they are developing male breasts, also known as gynecomastia, even if they never had a problem with man boobs before. Gynecomastia surgery has been in the top 5 procedures that men seek, for years.
As the popularity of men combining procedures continues to increase, it wasn’t surprising that a new term “Daddy Makeover” came into use. Many men who are have enlarged breasts undergo gynecomastia surgery. They also may choose to have liposuction of their love handles and the abdomen as well. Depending on the amount of loose skin and fat, some men choose to have an abdominoplasty for a flatter sculpted tummy.
