Daddy-do-over is a new concept for men with gynecomastia. The “mommy makeover” has been a popular term for a long time. Although men do not go through the physical changes of pregnancy that women do, they do experience physical changes as they age, earning them such names as the “Dad Bod!” The phrase daddy-do-over was coined to describe gynecomastia surgery with liposuction of the abdomen and waist.
Due to busy lifestyles, men may find it hard to hit the gym when they have substantial work schedules and family obligations. A poor diet can take a toll on physical appearance, making Dad go from fit to flabby. Many men are exhausted at the end of the day and prefer to relax on the couch and watch T.V. Sleep deprivation can also show signs of aging. It is easy for the pounds to pile up, and if men do manage to lose the extra weight, the skin has lost a lot of its elasticity, and sagging skin may be the result.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that there were more than 1,300,000 cosmetic procedures performed on men in 2018.
The five most popular male surgical procedures were:
- Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
- Gynecomastia (male breast reduction)
- Hair Transplantation
The five most popular male minimally invasive procedures were:
- Laser Hair Removal
- Chemical Peel
- Soft Tissue Fillers (i.e., Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, or their own fat)
When men select to have a surgical procedure, they inquire about adding both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Adding procedures makes a lot of sense as there is only one recovery time, and there can also be some cost savings.

Some of the procedures that men choose to combine are; gynecomastia surgery with liposuction of the abdomen and the love handles. Liposuction reveals underlying muscle definition.
