The Daddy Makeover

31 January 2013 I am probably not going to get a chance to comment on many plastic surgery articles exclusively dealing with male patients, so I could not let this one pass! We read a lot about the Mommy Makeover. This video and article from KHOU in Houston discusses the flip side of the coin: “The Daddy Makeover”. In most cosmetic plastic surgery practices, male patients represent less than 10 percent of the patient population. As pointed out in the article, the most common procedures that men usually want are fillers and injectables (Botox), laser hair removal and liposuction. It is interesting that this percentage of male patients seeking cosmetic procedures has stayed relatively constant over the years. It is probably not that men don’t want these procedures as much as women, men just are not as brave in the doctor’s office!
