A “daddy makeover” is considered a one-stop shop of cosmetic surgeries for men, so called after its female counterpart, the mommy makeover. Parenting is one of life’s greatest gifts, but it can take its toll on mums and dads. While much of the mommy makeover focuses on restoring a pre-pregnancy body, the focus for dads is on recapturing a more youthful, well-rested aesthetic.
What Does a Daddy Makeover Entail?
The daddy makeover trend is a series of cosmetic surgeries meant to reverse the ageing process. Typically the treatments include a tummy tuck, liposuction and a combination of enhancements, for example, in the chest and abdominal area. It can create the illusion of a more muscular, athletic physique.
Often these surgeries are combined with other procedures like facial rejuvenation and hair restoration treatments to give a top-to-toe makeover.
Non-Surgical Alternatives for Dads
There are plenty of ways to recapture your youth without an intense surgical overhaul. At Harley Street, we offer many treatments to help you achieve the younger, fitter appearance of your pre-parent days.
Reverse the Signs of Ageing
Parents or not, men are increasingly opting for procedures that can help dial back the clock and reduce the signs of ageing. Parenthood generally means less time for yourself, so perhaps you’ve been neglecting your skincare routine as your priorities shifted. Or maybe you didn’t have much of a regimen to begin with! But that doesn’t mean you have to accept the toll that time can take on your face.
A non-invasive facelift uses a combination of cosmetic injectables to lift and plump the skin for a more youthful appearance. It’s a highly customisable combination that will target the specific signs of ageing in each patient, be that eyelids, jawline, mouth or cheeks. The results can be subtle but extremely effective.
Fat Loss Treatments for Men
With age often comes weight gain, and fatherhood can also mean a less active lifestyle. Time that was previously spent in the gym or out running can be a rarity, and chasing around after kids isn’t quite the same. Much of the daddy makeover is aimed at fat loss, but there are plenty of alternatives to surgery.
Fat-dissolving injections are an excellent solution for stubborn areas of fat. This non-invasive treatment can target the stomach, arms, chin, chest, hips or back areas. The injections can take less than an hour, and there’s no downtime for recovery, so you can be back running around after your children in no time.
Combating Facial Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles are perhaps the biggest indicators of age on the face, and there are a few key areas that we can target to give a refreshed overall appearance. Creases between the eyebrows, across the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes can be a giveaway of age, and these are the areas we target with injectables.
“Boy-tox” is the name given to our combination of cosmetic injectables specifically for men wanting to reduce the signs of ageing subtly. Paired with dermal fillers for hydration and plumping, small amounts of botox are used to reduce muscle contractions that result in wrinkles.
Get Rid of Tired Eyes
It’s no secret that parenting comes with some sleepless nights, and that can result in tired-looking eyes. A combination of loose skin, fat deposits and shadows result in under-eye bags and dark circles, which can begin to happen at a young age in men. Our dark circles treatment uses a series of microneedles to subtly fill the tear trough area under the eyes. The filler is gently massaged in to smooth the skin and give a more youthful-looking result.
