Dad Bod to Rad Bod: Top Procedures for Men

Lifestyle changes can adversely affect the male physique including signs of aging like wrinkles, sagging skin, and sun damage. From body shaping treatments to BOTOX®, men are heading to the plastic surgeon in higher numbers to select a series of procedures dubbed the “daddy do-over.”

With the ever-increasing acceptance of plastic surgery for men, more men are considering a collection of aesthetic procedures known to revive and retain youthful appearances.

As men age, fat accumulates around their midsection. With less time to eat right and exercise, many guys find it difficult to reduce stubborn bulges. They are turning to aesthetic medicine to achieve their goals.

Most Popular “Daddy Do-Over” Procedures

Men looking to fine-tune the face and body have a full suite of options available at Aesthetx to help them look and feel their best.


Being a parent often leaves little time for self-care and maintaining a sculpted physique. However, Emsculpt offers a convenient solution that fits into a busy dad’s lifestyle. By utilizing high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, Emsculpt effectively targets and strengthens muscles, resulting in a more toned and defined physique. This treatment is particularly beneficial for dads who want to focus on areas such as their abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, as Emsculpt can help them achieve their desired results without the need for extensive workouts or invasive procedures.


According to the most recent data from the American Society for Plastic Surgeons, liposuction consistently remains among the top five cosmetic surgeries performed in the U.S. Body sculpting techniques vary between women and men. Men have a different waist-to-hip ratio than women. Women desire a sexy, hourglass appearance, while men typically do not.


For some men, trying to achieve a well-defined chest proves challenging no matter how diligently they diet and stick to a workout regimen. Gynecomastia is a medical term to describe enlarged breast growth in men. This condition may lead to lifelong psychological effects, including depression, low self-esteem, and embarrassment. The treatment of gynecomastia depends on the causes. Aesthetx offers male breast reduction to address the aesthetic concerns associated with gynecomastia.


While tummy tucks are a staple of post-pregnancy reconstruction, also known as the “mommy makeover”, they are not as popular with men. Because of the substantial stretching of the skin and underlying muscle during pregnancy, women seek abdominoplasty more than men. However, men can find benefits in the procedure as well. 

In cases of significant weight loss, abdominoplasty  — which removes excess skin and tightens the abdominal muscles — may be the best solution to meet your goals. Men who lose a significant amount of weight often find themselves with sagging skin left around the midsection. They can opt for a tummy tuck to dramatically improve their sense of self.


Men are increasingly turning to aesthetic medicine to help them look younger and gain a competitive edge in the workplace. BOTOX® among men — affectionately nicknamed “Bro-tox” — is on the rise. 

BOTOX® and soft-tissue dermal fillers rank first and second on the American Society for Plastic Surgeons’ annual list of the most popular non-surgical treatments for men. At Aesthetx we have  seen an increase in the number of fathers requesting this popular facial enhancement. They see it work for their wives, and want similar results.


As with women, the eyes are one of the first places to show the effects of age. Blepharoplasty helps men and women with puffy, sagging eyelids. It helps turn back the clock to revitalize your eyes by removing excess fat, muscle, or tissue.

Eyelid surgery addresses drooping, tired-looking eyes and puffy lower eyelids. You can have the procedure performed on your upper lids, lower lids, or both.
