We have all heard of the Mummy Makeover, helping mums regain their bodies after childbirth, but what about Dad? Of course mum bears the full grunt of childbirth but what happens to Dad? With the stress of parenthood, the lack of sleep, exhaustion and time constraints comes the unwanted physical changes that yes, even dad deals with too.
Many would say we are in an age where the gender role is in a flux. With more and more men seeking cosmetic procedures it seems it is no longer just the girls that are taking their physical appearance seriously. Recently we wrote about the statistics of more men seeking botox, you can find that article here.
But research is also suggesting that dads are in the top 4 types of men seeking cosmetic procedures. Often Dads feeling the physical affects of parenthood are looking for a Daddy-Do-Over, which is generally a number of cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, jawline recontouring and an eyelift performed in a single surgery.
Dr. Pouria Moradi from Sydney’s East performs a number of male cosmetic surgeries. Although he doesn’t package Daddy-Do-Overs he does see a number of dads seeking out cosmetic procedures due to the lifestyle demands and the toll that being a father has on men.
When we asked Dr. Moradi why he thought male cosmetic surgery is on the rise he advised that there isn’t as much of an increase as we think. Its just that the issue is spoken about more and more in the media, therefore there is more awareness around the subject.
“Male role models have changed too, just look at Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and Michael Clarke. They are not exactly the Alpha males of the 70s and 80s. Men – like their role models – take their health and appearance more seriously these days.” explained Dr. Moradi.
He also went on to state that the subject is not as taboo as it once was, as men are more open to talking about cosmetic surgery in general conversation.
