How Daddy Do-Overs Became The New Liposuction Trend
The post-pregnancy cosmetic makeovers known as “mommy makeovers” were an instant success. Giving birth strains a woman’s body and leaves it forever changed; at least, that’s how it used to be. Now, new moms are taking control of their bodies and using a combination of procedures to get them back in shape.
However, the mommy-makeover trend has had an unforeseen consequence: Dads are feeling left behind. In many cases, women end up looking better than they did before their pregnancy while their husbands are sporting the same graying hair and beer gut.
Now, facing pressures to look young at work and at home, middle-aged men are embracing cosmetic surgery and its power to make them appear youthful and energetic.

Men Combine Different Cosmetic Surgery Procedures Than Women
Smart Beauty Guide reports that both sexes gravitate toward a distinct set of procedures. Women tend to select tummy tucks, breast augmentation and liposuction to recover from pregnancy. On the other hand, men are drawn to liposuction and facial procedures like eyelid lifts and chin implants. Most men want to look good in a suit, so trimming down a few inches is important to get a great fit.
You may notice that both men and women choose liposuction as part of their makeovers, so it’s no surprise that it was the most requested cosmetic procedure in 2012, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
The Relationship That Men Have With Cosmetic Surgery Has Evolved In The Past Decade
If you asked a man 10 years ago about cosmetic surgery, he would almost certainly reference Michael Jackson. In other words, the stereotype associated with male cosmetic surgery was a thin, effeminate male. Over the past decade, though, that stereotype shifted to include the likes of Bono and George Clooney, who are both middle-aged men known for their bravado.
Similarly, young entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg and David Karp are challenging the gray-haired CEO stereotype, prompting middle-aged managers to seek rejuvenating procedures that help them stay competitive in a youth-oriented job market. The shift in perception led to a shift in habits, and the number of men seeking cosmetic procedures has risen 106 percent since 1997, according to the ASAPS.
