While some men have totally owned their “dad bod,” others are not as fond of their pudgy and not–so-well-sculpted physique. If you’re among the latter, Dr. David Pratt of Pratt Plastic Surgery can help you regain the chiseled and toned body you once had.
Here, our plastic surgeon discusses the top male plastic surgery procedures to combat the dad bod.
Even men who regularly go to the gym and eat healthily struggle with unwanted fat. Liposuction helps by removing pockets of fatty tissue that are resistant to weight loss efforts. The procedure can be performed on various body areas. Many men choose to have liposuction done on the “love handles” and chest area.
“Man boobs,” a medical condition known as gynecomastia, is a cosmetic problem that affects approximately 40 to 60 percent of all men. Male breast reduction removes excess breast tissue and re-sculpts the remaining tissue for a flatter and more classically masculine chest appearance.
Tummy tuck addresses a flabby or pudgy abdomen. During the procedure, excess skin is removed and weakened or separated muscles are sutured together for a flatter contour. If necessary, fatty tissue is removed with liposuction for more attractive results.
Lower Body Lift
Lower body lift re-contours sagging or loose tissue and skin on the hips, buttocks and outer thighs. The procedure can be performed in conjunction with tummy tuck to improve the appearance of a “muffin top” or “love handles.”
Combining Cosmetic Procedures
Many dad bod patients benefit from combining two or more of the cosmetic procedures mentioned above. In addition to more transformative results, combining procedures offers the benefit of one recovery. Staging out procedures one after the other means multiple recoveries. Having several procedures done in a single operation also means you only pay for certain fees (anesthesia, facility fees) once. Of course, not everyone is a suitable candidate for a combination procedure. A board-certified plastic surgeon can determine the best treatment plan for you based on your personal needs and goals.
