Behold the “Dad Bod”, the softly round male physique that boasts a fondness for the finer things in life like pizza and beer. It’s a shape that concedes you don’t have time for the “no pain, no gain” lifestyle of an Ironman athlete. You needn’t be a father to sport the squishy torso and love handles that are trademarks of the Dad Bod. Frat bros and bachelors across the country are rocking un-sculpted abs and soft bellies.
Some men are just fine with their cuddly contours, while other fellas would like a little less Pillsbury Doughboy and a little more muscle tone. Just because a man doesn’t bow at the altar of a Bowflex or make it to the gym with saintly devotion doesn’t mean that he can’t ditch the Dad Bod.
Body Contouring for Dad Bod
Many men find that despite a healthy diet and regular fitness routine, fatty bulges and rolls still persist. This is because the body can hold on to stubborn pockets of fat no matter how regularly you workout. Liposuction can sculpt your abs to offer more definition if you’re already near your target weight, but lacking the muscle tone you want.*
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, can remove excess abdominal skin that often develops from significant fluctuations in weight, aging or genetics.* This procedure can also repair weakened stomach muscles.* Demand for tummy tucks among men has grown considerably, so know that if you’re in the market to ditch the Dad Bod, you’re in good company.
