Whether actually a dad or not, no man wants to give in to middle-age spread and accept the appearance of a muffin top and skin that starts to sag. You don’t have to struggle alone to avoid the dad bod label. A few tweaks over time can help immensely. Below, we offer several options for restoring your body and self-esteem.

No one likes to look in the mirror and see lumps and bumps under their clothes. Liposuction is a solution when you want to get rid of excess pockets of fat that don’t respond to a healthy diet and exercise. It’s the perfect way to put the finishing touches on your body, especially when added to other surgical body contouring procedures. Liposuction can shape and define nearly every area of your body, from your chin to your legs.


Gynecomastia is the abnormal development of glandular tissue in the breast, which causes enlarged breasts in men. Nearly one in three men suffer from this condition, which can be a blow to your confidence. Male breast reduction surgery reshapes the chest into a more masculine contour using liposuction and, in some cases, the removal of excess fatty and glandular tissue.

Pectoral Implants

Not every body is designed to develop the ripped pectorals of gym bros everywhere. If years of chest presses haven’t yielded the expected results, pectoral implants can change that. Pectoral implants use a more solid silicone material than female breast implants and come in various shapes and sizes to fit individual proportions. The incision is made in the armpit, so you also have no visible scarring—just the fuller and more sculpted chest you’ve been wanting.

Lower Body Lift

Have you recently lost significant weight and found that the excess skin is getting in your way? A lower body lift is perfect for patients with skin laxity and stubborn fat pockets in their lower body. A lower body lift includes tightening and sculpting the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, and lateral thighs.


If you’re unhappy with how age is progressing in your face and think you look older than you feel, consider a facelift. Advanced techniques have made them nearly undetectable—you’ll look vibrant and refreshed without appearing as if you’ve had any work done. You can undergo a complete facelift or choose from other facelift options, including:

  • Mini Facelift: Targets early signs of aging in the lower section of the face, especially sagging skin along the jawline and neck.
  • Mid-Facelift: Targets the middle third of your face, from under your eyes to your mouth.
  • Brow Lift: Smooths out deep forehead furrows and lifts eyebrows back to a more youthful position.
  • Neck Lift: Addresses lax skin and lines on your neck and under your chin.

Eyelid Surgery

Whether you spend your days sitting in virtual or in-person meetings, the last thing you want to do is look exhausted or irritated. Eyes are called “the windows to the soul,” but you don’t want your soul to appear completely drained. Droopy eyelids and saggy under-eye bags can make you look older and give the impression that you’re angry or weary. Eyelid surgery eliminates excess, drooping skin on your upper and lower eyelids. It also smooths out crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes.

Rhinoplasty Surgery

A large or misshapen nose is often the most noticeable feature on anyone’s face. Genetics and injuries may have made your nose something to be self-conscious about, and you’re not alone. In 2020, rhinoplasty surgery was the most popular plastic surgery among men, and it consistently ranks among the top five most requested procedures for men. Nose reshaping surgery can correct a nose that is out of proportion with the rest of your face or, if it needs repair, leave you looking like yourself, just better.

Hair Treatments

Did you know that over 85% of men will experience some degree of hair loss in their lifetime? Whether your hair is thinning or you’re bald in some areas, there are hair loss treatments to help. Depending on your needs and the cause of your hair loss (genes, age, hormone changes), there are several choices (both surgical and non-surgical) to help restore a healthy mane, including:
