The notion that plastic surgery is for women only is a thing of the past, as recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men in 2018. Many of these procedures focus on addressing what pop culture has dubbed the “dad bod,” which is characterized by extra fat and flabby skin around the midsection and chest areas.
Dr. Ashkan Ghavami meets with many men eager to trade in their dad bod for a slimmer and more toned physique. Read on to learn more about the top cosmetic procedures he offers for the dad bod.
Almost everyone has problem areas or “trouble spots” that seem impossible to sculpt with diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is a great choice for men who want to get rid of fat in the midsection, which is often referred to as a “spare tire,” “muffin top” or “beer belly.” Traditional liposuction involves creating several small incisions in the treated area and removing the fatty tissue with gentle suction using a thin tube called a cannula. When performed by an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Ghavami, liposuction produces smooth and more proportionate body contours.
In addition to the midsection, liposuction can treat fat in the back, thighs, upper arms, buttocks and face.
Tummy tuck is another option for the dreaded muffin top or beer belly, as it removes excess, sagging abdominal skin and repairs separated or weakened abdominal muscles for a flatter and firmer contour. Tummy tuck is often performed with liposuction for more transformative results.
Male Breast Reduction
“Man boobs,” or excess male breast tissue, are a hallmark of the dad bod. Fortunately, a flatter and more masculine chest is possible with male breast reduction. During surgery, excess glandular tissue is removed and the remaining tissue is reshaped. Excess skin is trimmed and the remaining skin is re-draped over the flatter chest contour.
