What is a Daddy Makeover?
It is a series of invasive and non-invasive treatments for the body and face of men that can be performed in a surgery. It is a great choice for those men who are trying to lose extra pounds with diet and build a strong body with daily exercise but are not having the expected results. Their desire for a better, renewed look, though, does not fade and that is why they turn to the experience of a specialist.
Specifically, a Daddy Makeover may include:
- Treatment with botulinum toxin
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Thread lift
- Skin Booster
- Eyelid surgery
- Gynecomastia surgery
Of course, a man does not have to go through all the methods and types of surgery. After a thorough discussion with their personal Plastic Surgeon they can agree on what changes they will make and what treatments they will follow.
- Who is it for?
Daddy Makeover is aimed primarily at middle-aged men (45 and older). In recent years, however, an increasing percentage of the male audience is seeking the intervention of Aesthetic Surgery and not to correct defects that persist and prevent him from achieving their goal, creating a more attractive appearance. The signs of aging and the decline of the body appear faster, as the rhythms of daily life are more intense, the responsibilities are more and the stress is excessive, because of which they look older.
- The first visit to the doctor’s office
The first step is to make an appointment with a specialized Plastic Surgeon that will contribute to the understanding of the interested party’s deeper motivations and will orient them to the best possible methods of intervention on the face and body according to their needs, desires and goals. Because this is a series of many surgeries, other sessions with the Plastic Surgeon will follow. Complications, expected outcomes, the prospect of more than one surgery, the pace of recovery, and the length of postoperative care required should be clarified. Responsibility, accuracy and safety will determine the end result.
- The invasive and non-invasive treatments of Daddy Makeover
Botulinum toxin treatment (Botox)
The injection of botulinum toxin, also known as BOTOX, inhibits the continuous contraction of muscles that triggers the formation of wrinkles in the skin. This way expression wrinkles are reduced or softened, and the face looks more relaxed and radiant. The treatment can be applied both to the wider area of the face and to the neck by making local injections of the protein contained.
Hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic protein that is used either as a filler or as a mesotherapy for the smoothing of the face and neck area, contributing significantly to the hydration of the skin, its elasticity and the production of collagen, as well as to the swelling of certain areas that indicate tissue atrophy or asymmetry. It is applied topically by injecting the material.
A thread lift is an alternative method of combating the fall and sagging of the special anatomical elements of the face and neck compared to invasive methods. That is, this treatment can be performed by all those who do not wish to undergo surgery and wish to obtain an equally satisfactory result that will give them radiance and vitality.
A Skin Booster is an injectable skin rejuvenation technique that contains mainly hyaluronic acid and is injected under the skin, in the dermis. Cells through hyaluronic acid absorb more moisture, the skin is hydrated from within and collagen production is increased.
A facelift corrects any deformity and natural marks on the face, due to the normal wear and tear caused by time, such as sagging skin and wrinkles. It can be achieved with different techniques depending on the needs of each case. In general, each facelift involves making some incisions in the scalp, the pre-auricular area and back of the ears, so that they are not visible and help lift the skin and tighten the underlying tissues and muscles, allowing a younger look shape.
Through eyelid surgery the reduction of excess skin on the upper or lower eyelids is achieved with or without fat removal. As the eyes are the most expressive element in a face, skin sagging, as well as the “bags” that form around the eyelids, due to the localized fat, are two elements that age up an individual. The incisions are made in the natural crease of the upper eyelid and below the lashes on the lower eyelid in a pre-existing wrinkle so that they are not visible to the naked eye. The goal is for the eyelids to be in harmony with the rest of the anatomical structures of the face.
Otoplasty is a routine operation that aims to restore any deformity or deformity observed in the infrastructure of the ear and specifically in the areas of the helix, antihelix and lobe without affecting the sense of hearing. In a short time, the difference with the previous situation is obvious. The ears are well formed and in perfect harmony with the rest of the facial features and the head. The result looks natural and is permanent.
Abdominoplasty corrects the imperfections that exist in the abdomen area by removing the stored fat and excess skin, toning the muscles that have relaxed and softening the stretch marks that have been created after a sudden increase or loss of body weight. Although it is a complex operation, it promises a harmonious result worthy of the expectations of each candidate. The change in the abdomen is noticeable and in just a few months it becomes visible. Now the belly is flat and gives a youthful note to the overall look.
Liposuction is a method of losing local fat and improving body symmetry. The fat cells are removed on the condition that they will not regenerate, and the contour of the body is sculpted offering a renewed image. Two small holes are made through which a special thin cannula with a diameter of 2-5 mm passes, which is connected to a silicone tube in order to make the homogeneous suction of fat cells. Liposuction can be done on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, hips, calves, neck, arms, and waist. The results are spectacular and permanent, if combined with exercise and a balanced diet.
Gynecomastia is a hereditary or acquired problem that burdens men and can have a very negative effect on their psyche. This is due to the swelling of the breasts either due to the percentage prevalence of estrogen (female hormone) over testosterone or due to the excess stored fat in the breast area (pseudogynomastia). The operation is performed painlessly by making a small inconspicuous incision in the upper part of the nipple (areola). First the mammary gland and the accumulated fat are removed and then the excess skin. In case of pseudogynomastia, only the excess fat is removed, and restoration is done.
- After surgery
Recovery and healing time cannot be determined. It depends on the total of the operations that will be performed and the degree of response of the patient’s body. After the surgery, some analgesic drugs and antibiotics will be given to help the patient cope, in case he feels pain, and for him to recover faster. It is necessary for the patient to follow all the medical instructions given to him by the Plastic Surgeon to avoid any complication.
- Is it dangerous to perform multiple operations at the same time?
With the modernization of the methods and tools of Aesthetic Plastic surgery, the candidate does not need to feel fear. After all, in case the number of surgeries is large, the Plastic Surgeon himself must inform the candidate that he will perform the surgeries in the long run for his safety and for the best performance of the Plastic Surgeon himself and his team.
Today, an increasing percentage of the male population accepts the idea of invasive or non-invasive intervention in their appearance. The modern way of life and the standards of beauty demand the need to create a more youthful, fresh and attractive image. Daddy Makeover can offer men the opportunity to rejuvenate, increase their self-confidence and self-esteem and have a positive effect on their social environment and workplace.
