Most people have heard of mommy makeovers – a collection of procedures designed to help a mom get back her pre-pregnancy body contours. But the fact is, the term “mommy makeover” doesn’t really refer to a specific procedure, and is instead a marketing term to talk about the common procedures women have who want to reclaim their figure.
But what about everyone else? Is there a male equivalent? Maybe a daddy-do-over is a better fit. Or maybe you’re a younger woman without kids, looking for a way to address some excess skin and stubborn fat pockets left after significant weight loss. Can you get a mommy makeover if you are not a mommy? The answer is a most definite yes!!
The Mommy Makeover
As we mentioned, a mommy makeover does not refer to one specific treatment, but rather a collection of plastic surgery procedures designed to help a woman get back her pre-pregnancy contours. During pregnancy, changes occur to the breasts, abdominal skin and muscles stretch, and stubborn pockets of fat may remain. A mommy makeover combines procedures like breast augmentation, reduction, or lifts with other procedures like a tummy tuck, liposuction, or a butt lift in order to address all body contour concerns at once, maximizing results with only one recovery time.
But what about dad? Dubbed the daddy-do-over, this procedure follows the same idea as the mommy makeover, but for a man looking to say goodbye to his dad bod and hello to firmer, toned body features. Common procedures in a daddy-do-over often include breast reduction and chest contouring for gynecomastia, liposuction to address areas of stubborn fat, and a tummy tuck to get rid of that excess pouch of skin that hangs over the waistline.
Significant Weight Loss
Significant weight loss is an accomplishment anyone should be proud of. Unfortunately, after significant weight loss, the skin isn’t always eager to bounce back, often leaving you with excess skin around the midsection and sagging breasts. Common procedures included in a mommy makeover after weight loss include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast lift with or with augmentation in order to better tone your waistline and restore a more youthful breast appearance.
