It’s Time To Ditch The Dad Bod!

evolution of the dad bod

The term “Dad Bod” was coined by a university student, Mackenzie Pearson, who published a post on March 30, 2015, entitled “Why Girls Love the Dad Bod”. In the post, Pearson defines the term as follows: “The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, ‘I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.’ It’s not an overweight guy, but it isn’t one with washboard abs, either.”

For some reason our affection for the Dad Bod never really extended to the Mom Bod – but that is a subject of a whole other blog with the working title “Double Standards for Male and Female Appearances still alive and well in the 21st Century”.

Snide remarks about double standards aside, at Tropicalaser we do observe a very welcome trend towards increased pride in their appearance from our male clientele. One of our male friends told us, “When love handles become love wagons, it may be time to seek professional help!”

Body sculpting (also known as body contouring) is the perfect treatment for the Dad Bod. As Pearson observed, the Dad in question is NOT overweight, he probably works out and tries to eat healthily most of the time, but still those annoying pockets of fat persist. As Tropicalaser we use the Venus Legacy as our preferred body sculpting modality. The Venus Legacy uses a combination of pulsed electromagnetism and radio frequency generated heat to release fats into the lymphatic drainage system, while simultaneously tightening the skin. This means that the client not only loses inches, but also achieves a smoother, tauter appearance. The Legacy is perfect for targeting those areas that most afflict the Dad Bod – love handles and abdomen.

Visibly improved appearance can be achieved over a course of 8 – 10 weekly treatments, followed by single maintenance treatments every 3 – 6 months. Best of all, the treatment is quick, requiring less than 45 minutes of your time, and very pleasant, feeling rather like a hot stone massage.
