Maternity aesthetics is an extremely popular aesthetic surgery procedure among women who have undergone pregnancy and childbirth and want to restore their bodies to the way they were before the baby. Although maternity aesthetics is among the most frequently requested aesthetic surgery procedures by women, the same problem is also faced by men in different ways.
Lifestyle changes that occur after having a child can also affect men's physique. The responsibility of the new baby in the family and changes in the daily routine can prevent fathers from taking time to do sports, as well as poor eating habits can lead to weight gain. In this case, men also want to renew their bodies against the effects of weight gain or aging.
What is Paternity Aesthetics?
Paternity aesthetics, just like maternity aesthetics, combines aesthetic surgery procedures applied to provide whole body shaping. Surgeries targeting different parts of the body can be combined according to individual needs.
Who is Paternity Aesthetics Suitable for?
- People with regional resistant fat deposits that cannot be removed with regular diet and exercise in areas of the body such as abdomen, thighs, back, hips and arms,
- It can be applied to people with sagging skin in the chest and abdomen after dramatic weight loss.
How is Paternity Aesthetics Performed?
Before paternity aesthetics, patient-specific needs are determined and expectations are evaluated. Problem areas are marked and general anaesthesia is applied.
Gynecomastia is a condition characterised by male breast tissue being larger than what is considered normal. Gynaecomastia, which comes to the fore as a result of excessive fat accumulation and/or tissue formation in the male breast, may occur as a result of hormonal changes, weight gain or the use of various drugs.
Gynaecomastia surgery, which can cause physical and emotional distress in men, makes it possible for men to have a firmer and masculine chest appearance. Within the scope of the surgery, excess fat and glandular tissue in the breast are removed. The operation, which is performed only with liposuction technique in some patients, may require simultaneous application of liposuction and different techniques in some patients.
There may be resistant fat deposits that cannot be removed from the body despite all diet and exercise efforts. Liposuction is an effective solution for the removal of stubborn fat deposits in various parts of the body such as abdomen, thighs, neck, knees and hips. Liposuction, which can be applied to people who are at or close to their ideal weight, should not be considered only as a weight loss method. Successful results can be obtained with liposuction only in selected patients who meet the necessary criteria for the operation. In patients with excessive skin sagging, liposuction and stretching surgeries may need to be combined.
One of the most commonly performed operations within the scope of paternity aesthetics is abdominoplasty. Abdominoplasty is applied for men to have a more contoured and thinner midsection. After losing weight, many men face the problem of excess skin that cannot be eliminated only with diet and exercise. Tummy tuck surgery is performed by removing excess skin and tightening the abdominal muscles to reduce laxity. If needed, it can be supported with liposuction.
Recovery Process After Paternity Aesthetics
The recovery process after paternity aesthetics may vary according to the procedures applied individually. During the male recovery period after gynaecomastia, the patient should sleep with his upper body and head elevated and knees bent. There may be pain when the arm is moved for the first few days. A corset should be used during the specified period and should not lie face down for 1 week.
After liposuction, mild pain and moderate swelling and bruising may be observed depending on the extent of the application. A corset should be used for a certain period of time. How long the corset will be used may vary depending on the scope of the procedure and the technique used. It is generally recommended to avoid heavy sports that require physical effort for 8 weeks.
A special corset is used for 4 weeks after tummy tuck surgery. Bathing may be recommended 2 to 3 weeks after the operation. Since the stitches have not yet fully fused in the first week, movements such as straining, sneezing and coughing may hurt the patient and damage the stitches.
As after all surgeries, alcohol and cigarette consumption should be stopped in the process after paternity aesthetics. Alcohol can increase the risk of bleeding by diluting the blood, while the chemicals in cigarettes can delay the healing process and trigger the formation of infection.
In order to maintain the shaped and fit appearance that can be obtained after paternity aesthetics, patients should adopt healthy living habits, pay attention to nutrition and do not neglect regular exercise.
