A plastic surgery stigma is that it’s for women only. However, recent statistics provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons illustrate that over 1.3 million male cosmetic procedures occurred in 2018. Unfortunately, many procedures focused on what pop culture dubs the “dad bod,” men with excess fat or flabby skin in the midsection and chest. Fortunately, a New York City plastic surgeon for men, Dr. Aviva Preminger, understands the male physique and helps you reach your goals of a slim and toned body. In today’s blog, Dr. Preminger shares the top three procedures for a “dad bod” so that you can make a knowledgeable decision about your next cosmetic procedure.    

  1. Male Liposuction

Diet and exercise can help you lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, men sometimes struggle with “trouble spots” where excess fat remains, no matter how many hours they work out. Male liposuction on the Upper East Side of Manhattan is an excellent choice for men who want to sculpt or define the midsection and remove fat causing a “beer belly,” “spare tire,” or “muffin top.” Typical male liposuction requires several small incisions in the focus area and removing fat tissues with a thin, gentle suction tube called a cannula. Liposuction is a standard procedure to address excess fat in the upper arms, face, thighs, buttock, or back. Dr. Preminger can help you get rid of your “dad bod” for good by sculpting your body where diet and exercise fail.

  1. Male Tummy Tuck

A male tummy tuck can also address the typical “muffin top” or “beer belly.” Removing sagging or excess abdominal skin and weakened or separated abdominal wall repair can provide a flat, firm contour. A tummy tuck for men in New York City is an ideal solution for creating your chiseled dream physique. An incision from hipbone to hipbone is necessary so Dr. Preminger can contour the skin, tissue, and abdominal muscles. In most cases, male liposuction accompanies a tummy tuck procedure for a toned, etched look. Redefining your midsection with a male tummy tuck can help you kick your “dad bod” to the curb.

  1. Male Breast Reduction

A hallmark physical attribute of a “dad bod” is “man boobs” or excess breast tissue in the chest area known as gynecomastia. Unfortunately, breast tissue overdevelopment or gynecomastia is a source of embarrassment and harassment for men. Often, adolescents and adults seek male breast reduction procedures to regain confidence. The hormonal imbalance is from an underlying condition, a prescription side effect, or steroid use. It can cause insecure feelings and prompt some men to never go without a shirt. However, men’s Upper East Side of Manhattan breast reduction surgeon, Dr. Preminger, uses multiple techniques to contour the chest area for a natural-looking appearance. For most patients, male liposuction is necessary to remove excess body fat to help Dr. Preminger sculpt your chest area and shed your “dad bod.”
