Last week’s post featured The Aesthetic Society’s Beyond the Before & After, featuring my patient who lost over 100 pounds and dramatically changed his life. I received a load of positive feedback, so if you missed the video, be sure to click back and watch.
Daddy Makeover After Weight Loss
Last week’s video shared the experience of my patient from before considering plastic surgery to the results. It was well received, and my followers have asked to see more before and after pictures. So this week you get what you’ve patiently waited for – more Daddy Makeover Before and After Pictures.
The before picture below shows residual gynecomastia and skin laxity of the chest and abdomen after weight loss. The right breast was larger than the left and the inframammary folds were at different levels.
A large amount of skin was removed from the chest and abdomen to create tight skin that reveals the muscles he worked so hard to define. For example, on his left breast there is a nevus (mole) next to his nipple in the after picture. The same mole can be seen in the before picture half-way between the nipple and his tattoo. All the skin from just below the mole to the fold under the breast was removed.
Abdominoplasty was performed to remove the excess abdominal skin and Liposuction was added to further define the lower abdomen and to remove disproportionate fat from the hips and back (the love handles).
Daddy Makeover Gynecomastia Reduction
You may or may not have noticed that the skin removed from the chest included the nipples. In order to tighten the chest, all the loose skin was excised, and in this case, the skin removed included the nipples. To optimize the results, the nipples and areolae were reduced to aesthetically pleasing proportions and grafted back onto the chest in the ideal position to create my patient’s new, masculine chest. This patient had full return of nipple sensation a few weeks after surgery, though sometimes the grafts can remain numb
With the arms raised, you can see the amount of gynecomastia tissue that was present before Male Breast Reduction. Typically, when the skin is tight, Gynecomastia is removed through a small incision along the edge of the areolae. In this case; however, it was removed via the incisions used for skin reduction.
Daddy Makeover Oblique View
The oblique view is the best for demonstrating the great results of this chest reduction. The change in contour is best seen on the far more distant breast. The sagging of the nipple and the redundancy of the skin are more apparent from this angle. You can also see how much higher and closer to the tattoos the nipples are after surgery.
The Abdominoplasty scar has already healed so well that it’s difficult to see. The reduction in the abdominal skin laxity can be seen from this angle, but it is best seen in the next photo.
Daddy Makeover Side View
TThe side view after photo reveals the tightening and elevation of the chest, and also the tightened abdominal wall which showcases his well-defined abdominal muscles now visible without the loose skin seen obscuring them in the before photo.
The Daddy Makeover tightens both the chest and the abdomen and is tailored to each patient’s needs. In this case, the chest reduction was more extreme than average, while the abdominoplasty was less extreme. Overall, the result is an improvement in contour, and a new level of self-confidence for my patient.
