Who is a Candidate?

Candidates for the dad makeover are men who are unhappy with the appearance of their upper body including their chest, midsection, and abdominal area. The preferred candidate would be in good general health with realistic expectations for the procedure outcome. Just like with any other cosmetic procedure it is important that your reasoning for getting the procedure is to make yourself happy and no one else.

The Procedure

A dad makeover is a comprehensive procedure intended to offer male patients a customized solution to the physical effects of aging and weight changes. This procedure is meant to help address some of the most common trouble areas for men that exist in the mid-section and chest. Procedures included in the dad makeover are:

Gynecomastia: Addresses unwanted excess breast tissue that is causing the appearance of breasts on a man. Gynecomastia can be caused by hormones, weight gain, or a separate glandular issue.

Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck eliminates the presence of excess skin that has formed as a result of progressive weight gain, loss, or general aging causing skin laxity.

Liposuction: To tend to the excess fat, liposuction can be used to remove localized fat deposits in the abdominal area as well as some smaller more detailed areas if needed.


Due to the fact that the dad makeover is a procedure customized to fit your specific goals, recovery time will likely vary from patient to patient. However, in most cases, Dr. Homas or Dr. Brostrom will ask that patients wear compression garments to help with swelling and the overall healing process. In addition to compression garments, Dr. Homas will provide you with post-op instructions for a safe recovery.
