And the rising popularity of the “Mommy Makeover” (cosmetic procedures that rejuvenate breasts, stomachs, etc.) tells us that more moms than ever are looking for ways to improve their appearance after pregnancy. Could moms and dads really be on such different pages? Actually, they aren’t.
Dads are seeking ways to look better, too
According to recent statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), more than 1.2 million cosmetic procedures were performed last year – just on men. In fact, men having “procedures” has gone up about 63% in the last five years. So it’s certainly not just moms who are looking for ways to improve their appearance with cosmetic treatments.
Here’s what a man wants
Some of the top procedures for men include:
- Fat reduction
Men like non-surgical procedures with little to no downtime, just like women. Men are treating the wrinkles around their eyes, the furrows in their foreheads, their saggy jowls and their double chins. And forget the dad bod: men are having liposuction in record numbers to rid themselves of love handles and extra fat in the chest area.
Men, aging and the job market
Many male patients report that anti-aging procedures can help keep them more competitive on the job. And a more youthful, rested appearance can be especially useful when looking for a new position. But cosmetic enhancements for any reason are becoming more acceptable to men, which could lead us to conclude that even men sporting a dad bod might still be getting Botox or Juvederm injections to achieve a more youthful looking face.
