Women are not the only ones seeking surgical solutions to correct imperfections in their body or face. In recent years, more men have been encouraged to undergo plastic surgeries, improve their image and look younger. This group of procedures have been baptized as Daddy-Do-Over and here we explain more about it.

What does a Daddy-Do-Over consist of?

The Daddy-Do-Over is one of the new popular trends among men of a certain age. Basically, it is the male version of a Mommy Makeover [4]. It consists of performing several cosmetic surgical procedures in the same intervention to improve the patient’s appearance.

Although men do not go through the fluctuations of pregnancy, fathers and men in general go through changes in their bodies due to aging, lifestyle, late nights, and sudden weight fluctuactions. For this reason, undergoing a Daddy-Do-Over would be a great help to counteract the imperfections that arise with the passage of time.


What are the most commonly used procedures for a Daddy-Do-Over?

As in a Mommy Makeover, there is no pre-established list that determines the plastic surgeries that doctors should always be performed. First of all, the plastic surgeon must evaluate your case, and then, he/she suggests the number of viable procedures according to the patient’s medical evaluation and preferences.

However, there are certain surgical procedures that tend to be repeated constantly and that it give a clear idea of what surgeries a Daddy-Do-Over could include. Some of them would be [6]:

  1. Laser Liposuction: this is a surgical procedure that uses laser technology to shape the body. It melts localized fat deposits and removes them without damaging the tissue. It is applied to the abdomen, arms, hips, buttocks, thighs, jowls and back [2].
  2. Gynecomastia: also known as male breast reduction, it is a procedure used to tighten sagging skin around the pectoral area. This excess tissue can be caused by hormonal or overweight issues and the procedure is very similar to a female breast reduction [10].
  3. Eyelid surgery: also known as blepharoplasty, it is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and/or fat accumulation of the lower or upper eyelids, allowing a less tired, more youthful look with a wider field of vision [1].
  4. Rhinoplasty: this plastic surgery improves facial harmony and proportions of the nose, in addition to correcting structural defects of the nose in order to allow better nasal breathing [7]. 
  5. Ear surgery: this is a surgical procedure that corrects the size, position or shape of the ears, reducing their projection and providing harmony to the face. The patient achieves immediate results and the recovery is fast [3].

Benefits of a Daddy-Do-Over

A Daddy-Do-Over can bring multiple benefits to your patients. Among the main ones, we find that it allows to reduce the total cost to be paid compared to the cost for each surgical procedure independently. In addition, it increases self-confidence and it allows to obtain results that last over time [9].

In summary

A Daddy-Do-Over is the combination of surgical procedures that are intended to get rid of the “daddy bod”. The passage of time can allow the appearance of flaccidity in different parts of the body and the dreaded “beer belly” in men. For this reason, its application could improve their look and make them feel younger. 

Among the surgeries that could include a Daddy-Do-Over, we find out laser liposuction, ear surgery, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and gynecomastia or breast reduction as the most frequent for this. Performing two or more at the same time allows saving costs and time, but it must be always supervised by the medical evaluation of your plastic surgeon.
