Am I a Candidate for a Daddy Makeover?

When most people think of the physical changes a couple experiences after having a baby, they imagine a woman adjusting to her new postpartum body. This is absolutely the case for many women, but it’s also important to remember men, too, can experience significant physical changes when they become parents.

If you’re a father and have found yourself developing an unwanted dad bod from the adjustment to parenting, Joseph Fodero, MD, PA, a board-certified plastic surgeon, and his team at Northeastern Plastic Surgery in Florham Park, New Jersey can transform your appearance with a daddy makeover. Learn more about the daddy makeover, and how it can rejuvenate your body and appearance.

What is a daddy makeover?

Although dads don’t carry or birth their baby, they still often undergo a number of lifestyle changes after becoming parents. These can include getting less sleep, having less time to exercise and eat healthfully, and their new lifestyle co-occurring with other signs of aging.

You might notice undesired changes to your body, including the softening of previously toned areas, unwanted redistribution of fat, and appearing older and less refreshed. The daddy makeover is a series of body contouring and facial rejuvenation surgical procedures, customized to you in consultation with Dr. Fodero, that sculpt your body and give you a more youthful appearance.

A daddy makeover allows you to combine the procedures you would like and get them at or around the same time. This comes with the benefits or a shorter overall recovery period and allows you to experience all the benefits of your different procedures at once.

Is a daddy makeover right for me?

If you’re a healthy man who’s noticed undesired physical changes or signs of aging since becoming a dad and would like to make changes, you might be a good candidate for daddy makeover. At your consultation, Dr. Fodero recommends the procedures most suitable for your needs and goals.

What procedures are involved in a daddy makeover?

When you get your daddy makeover, the procedures you get are tailored especially for your needs. Some of the most common daddy makeover procedures Dr. Fodero performs include:

Tummy tuck

It’s common to gain excess fat and hanging skin in your stomach and abdominal area after becoming a dad, and this area is often stubbornly resistant to making lifestyle changes. A tummy tuck contours your stomach area, helping it look flatter and more toned in shape.


When your body changes with fatherhood, you might notice that certain areas of your body tend to collect excess fat and are unresponsive to weight loss. Dr. Fodero can eliminate these problem areas with liposuction, in which he suctions the extra fat permanently out of your body.

Breast reduction surgery

Some men can develop gynecomastia, which means you have an enlarged, more feminine-looking chest. Using male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Fodero removes excess breast tissue and fat and gives you a masculine-looking, flat chest.

Facial rejuvenation

Dr. Fodero can perform a number of anti-aging procedures on your face to help you look younger and more rejuvenated. One popular facial procedure for new dads is eyelid surgery, which lifts up saggy eyelids and makes you look younger and less tired.

Other procedures that can give you a younger and refreshed appearance as a busy dad include a face lift, brow lift, neck lift and Rhinoplasty.
