Looking for something different to get the men in your life this year? How about some plastic surgery? A new study claims that cosmetic procedures are growing in popularity among middle-aged men so much that they’re becoming “common” requests for many.
Research conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that more fathers are turning to what’s referred to as the “Daddy-Do-Over” to improve their looks and confidence at the same time. A spin-off of the “Mommy Makeover,” this masculine take involves both surgical and non-surgical body contouring and facial adjustments performed in a single operation for men.
When it comes to plastic surgery, doctors completed more than 200,000 surgical procedures in 2018. Getting a nose job (rhinoplasty) was most common with about 52,000 surgeries done, followed by eyelid surgery, liposuction, breast reduction, and hair transplantation rounding out the top five. Doctors say a 5% increase in liposuction and a 17% jump in hair transplants compared to 2017.
Men don’t go through the same physical changes that women experience during pregnancy and post-pregnancy, but their lifestyle does change, which can impact their appearance. Men notice their body changes due to aging and parenting, and it starts to look completely different in their 30s and 40s. That is the point of a Daddy-Do-Over.
