Thanks to the rise of social media, zoom conference calls, and dating apps, now more than ever men are paying close attention to their body image. According to the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), in 2020, around 289,000 males underwent some type of cosmetic procedure. Popular procedures included nose reshaping, eyelid lifts, cheek implants, liposuction, and otoplasties. In addition to surgical procedures, 800,000+ men opted for minimally invasive procedures that included fillers, BOTOX®, and microdermabrasion (ASPS).
Whether men choose a non-surgical treatment like laser hair removal or a surgical procedure like male breast reduction at our St. Louis-area practice, it is important to know what options are available.
A procedure that has recently grown in popularity is the “Daddy Do-Over”—the male counterpart to a Mommy Makeover. A Daddy Do-Over helps to reshape and contour the male body by removing excess fatty tissue and loose skin. The procedure includes an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction). A Daddy Do-Over is a great option for men looking to boost their confidence and enhance their physique.

Not interested in extensive surgery for body contouring? Not a problem! Dr. Diederich also offers liposuction as an alternative option. Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery option for both men and women looking to target stubborn belly fat. This procedure is completed by removing excess fat deposits to better help shape and contour the body. Liposuction can also be completed in-office under local anesthetic and requires no downtime. You can learn more about how liposuction compares to tummy tuck surgery in a related blog post.
We get it, surgery is not for everyone. At MidAmerica Plastic Surgery we like to offer a variety of aesthetic options to our patients. A non-surgical option that we offer for treating unwanted fat is CoolSculpting®. Coolsculpting requires no incisions, no injections, and no downtime. Cost is dependent on the number and size of the treatment area. Treatment areas include love handles, abdomen, inner & outer thighs, double chin, arms, and backside.
Whether you opt for a surgical or non-surgical procedure, we cannot stress enough the importance of choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon. That is why both men and women looking for the best plastic surgery options in St. Louis are choosing surgeons like Dr. Ryan Diederich. With over 10 years of experience, Dr. Diederich has developed a keen eye for detail while performing several cosmetic procedures on both males and females.
