Cosmetic Surgery for Dads isn’t Taboo

The “mommy makeover” phenomenon, where new moms get several cosmetic procedures (typically a breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and/or breast lift) helps women return their bodies to their pre-pregnancy shape.

And while women make up the majority of plastic surgery patients, men—some of them dads—turn to plastic surgery to enhance their appearance as well. According to 2009 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), men received 13 percent of all cosmetic surgical procedures and 9 percent of all cosmetic minimally-invasive procedures performed last year in the United States.

Bill Neville, 52, a father of a four-year-old son, recently shared his plastic surgery story with reporter Elise Morgan of WHNT NEWS 19 in Huntsville, Alabama. Neville began to worry about how old he looked. “He’s going to start t-ball, swimming, and I don’t want to be out there with the rest of the dads and have them looking at me like, ‘Hey! Grandpa is out here to watch his grandson!'” he said.

While changes in his diet and exercise helped, he decided to get cosmetic surgery as well. “Just rolling back the clock a bit on this turkey gobbler and possibly getting the skin off my eyelids would be great,” he said before the surgeries.

Neville’s surgeries included his eyelids, a facelift, a neck lift, laser resurfacing of his skin, and injections to fill in wrinkles. “I was hoping not to look real “plasticky” and stretched, and I don’t think I do,” said Neville. “I think it looks real natural and everyone I’ve talked to thinks it looks great.”

According to ASPS statistics,the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures for men last year were:

  1. Rhinoplasty (surgical) / Botox (minimally-invasive)
  2. Eyelid surgery / Microdermabrasion
  3. Liposuction / Laser hair removal
  4. Breast reduction / Chemical Peel
  5. Hair transplantation / Wrinkle fillers

Bill Neville’s story is on the WHNT News website: “Plastic Surgery for Men Isn’t Taboo”.

Men considering cosmetic surgery in the Frederick, Maryland and Washington, D.C. area should choose a surgeon who has extensive knowledge regarding special considerations to take into account when performing a cosmetic procedure on a man rather than a woman.
