While the focus is always on the way women’s bodies change after becoming parents, dads are not immune to this transformation. After all, it’s called dad bod for a reason. But aside from diet and exercise, men are rarely given solutions for this change in themselves. Unfortunately, eating well and working out aren’t always enough.

What Is Dad Bod?

While it has been something of a buzzword in recent years, the dad bod is very real, and not at all new. Basically, dad bod describes any male body that isn’t as fit and toned as it once was or as much as you would like it to be. Usually, the term is meant to describe a male body that has undergone some level of weight gain and loss of muscle definition. If you look in the mirror and you feel like your body has become too “soft,” chances are you are battling dad bod yourself.

If you find that nothing you do is helping, or at least not helping enough, you might want to consider plastic surgery for dad bod, such as liposuction and tummy tucks.

Do Men Really Get Plastic Surgery?

Men deserve to feel confident in their appearance, and more and more men recognize this fact.

It might sound like something only for the Hollywood types, but the reality is that men are getting plastic surgery more frequently than ever before. Over 300,000 men got plastic surgery in the U.S. in 2018, a number which likely increased in 2019.

This means that men certainly do get plastic surgery, and not just those working in Hollywood. Just like women, men deserve to look as young as they feel and gain confidence in themselves.

Plastic Surgery Solutions for Dad Bod

The right plastic surgery procedure for combating dad bod will depend on what issues are bothering you. Like women, men experience changes in their hormones as they get older, often causing weight gain and loss of muscle definition in the love handles and stomach. If it is just stubborn fat that is bothersome, liposuction might be the best solution.

Liposuction permanently removes fat from the targeted area, revealing the muscle underneath. A cannula is used to break apart fat pockets and then suction them out. This can be done in a single area or multiple parts of the body. In some cases, the client might wish to combine it with another procedure.

One procedure that is frequently combined with liposuction is a tummy tuck. Getting a tummy tuck for dad bod is a great way to address not just fat, but excess skin and lack of muscle tone. Also known as abdominoplasty, this can be performed just on the upper or lower abdomen, the entire abdomen or even the full circumference of the midsection.

Keep in mind that there are many plastic surgery solutions for men, not just those for body contouring. If you are worried about your dad bod or any other aspect of your appearance, now is the time to discuss your options with a plastic surgeon.
