"Daddy Makeover”

Gynecomastia and the “Daddy Makeover”

San Jose, California - A very popular cosmetic surgical procedure for women is the “Mommy Makeover.” After women have completed having children, many are seeking ways to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies, thus the “Mommy Makeover.” It is called this because it is a combination of procedures that can be done at one time; it includes a tummy tuck, liposuction and some type of breast surgery.

Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction surgery, increases each year. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there was an increase of 11% this past year. This is because men are becoming more comfortable with elective surgery and in particular gynecomastia surgery than in the past. Thanks to the media, men are becoming more aware of different options that are available to them.

What is a Daddy Makeover?

Recently a new term has popped up, the “Daddy Makeover.” As men age, they are finding it more difficult to keep their bodies in shape. In particular, love handles and the abdomen seem to be a common complaint. For many it seems that no amount of dieting and exercise can reduce this area. For years, liposuction has been the number one cosmetic surgical procedure for men, and the main treatment areas are the tummy and the love handles. So it was an obvious transition for men who were having male breast reduction surgery to want to add some liposuction. Since they were already having surgery, they realized they could save a lot of time and money by combining procedures. They would only have to take time off work once, go through recovery once, and surgical fees would be somewhat reduced since they were already there.

The patient is 55 years old and has suffered gynecomastia for years. He underwent glandular excision and liposuction of his chest, flanks and abdomen.

Some men have even combined other procedures such as a rhinoplasty (nose revision), etc. If you are contemplating gynecomastia surgery, and you have other issues that bother you, be sure to discuss this with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon at the time of your consultation.
