“Daddy Makeovers”? Dads Can Benefit from Plastic Surgery Makeovers
“Mommy makeover” is the name of the trend where new moms get several cosmetic procedures—typically a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and/or breast lift—to help return their bodies to their pre-pregnancy shape. It’s less often you hear about plastic surgery makeovers for dads, and yet men received 13 percent of all cosmetic surgical procedures and 9 percent of all cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed last year in the United States, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Bill Neville, 52, is a dad who recently shared his plastic surgery story with reporter Elise Morgan of WHNT NEWS 19 in Huntsville, Alabama. Neville has a four-year-old son and began to worry about looking too old. “He’s [my son] going to start t-ball, swimming, and I don’t want to be out there with the rest of the dads and have them looking at me like, ‘Hey! Grandpa is out here to watch his grandson!'” Neville said.
“Just rolling back the clock a bit on this turkey gobbler and possibly getting the skin off my eyelids would be great,” he said pre-surgery.
Neville’s surgeries included his eyelids, a facelift, a neck lift, laser resurfacing of his skin, and injections to fill in wrinkles. “I was hoping not to look real “plasticky” and stretched, and I don’t think I do. I think it looks real natural and everyone I’ve talked to thinks it looks great,” said Neville.
ASPS statistics show that the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures for men last year were:
- Rhinoplasty (surgical) / Botox (minimally-invasive)
- Eyelid surgery / Microdermabrasion
- Liposuction / Laser hair removal
- Breast reduction / Chemical Peel
- Hair transplantation / Wrinkle fillers
