You might have heard of a procedure called a Mommy Makeover, which is done to help restore the shape of a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. A Daddy Do-Over shares the same general idea, but for men. While a man might not experience changes to his body due to pregnancy, he may notice that weight fluctuations and genetics have taken a toll. At Power Plastic Surgery, we offer the Daddy Do-Over procedure to help men look and feel their very best!

"I think the best results are natural-looking. Refreshed and reflected by a patient’s self-confidence."


What is a Daddy Do- Over?

A daddy do-over is the male version of a mommy makeover. This procedure is meant to address changes that occur to a man’s body over time often related to weight fluctuation. It may include a combination of breast and body procedures to help men achieve a more youthful and toned appearance. These procedures may include the following:

Gynecomastia Surgery

This procedure reduces breast size in men, creating a flatter chest contour. Gynecomastia is a condition that results in enlarged breasts in men of any age. The condition is often caused by hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. This condition can cause low self-esteem and discomfort in those who suffer from it. Thankfully, gynecomastia surgery can help to correct the issue for a more confident you.


Liposuction is a procedure done to slim and reshape certain areas of the body by removing excess deposits of fat. It can be performed on many areas of the body, including the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, back, and chest area. If you are within 10% of your ideal weight, then liposuction may be able to help you eliminate those stubborn areas of fat.

Tummy Tuck

After many men achieve substantial weight loss – whether related to bariatric surgery or diet and exercise – a new problem may result: loose skin and soft tissue around the mid-section.  A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen, as well as restores weakened or separated abdomen muscles. This creates a smoother, flatter abdominal contour.

How is a Daddy Do-Over Performed?

Your Daddy Do-Over surgery will be tailored to your unique goals and needs.  Surgery may be performed under general or local anesthetic depending on the best choice for you. Because there are a variety of procedures that can be included in your Daddy Do-Over, surgery time will differ from one patient to the next. Our team will prep you before your surgery so you are fully prepared for your procedure on surgery day.

Daddy Do-Over Recovery

Following your Daddy Do-Over procedure, our team will give you special instructions on how to best care for your surgical sites and how to take any medications you may be prescribed. It may take several weeks for bruising and swelling to dissipate. As swelling goes down, you will gradually be able to notice your new body contours. Overall recovery time will vary depending on the procedures included in your Daddy Do-Over.
