What Is A Male Facelift?
Aging, stress, sun exposure, and other factors all wreak havoc on your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles may appear, and the skin may begin to sag. All of these issues can be reduced with a facelift procedure. Male facelift procedures can remove areas of excess fat, tighten muscles that stretch over time, and adjust the skin on the face and neck for a smoother appearance. A facelift can be performed by itself or with other procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), chin implants, or rhinoplasty (surgery of the nose).
Benefits of a Male Facelift
There are many benefits for men who have facelift procedures. The muscles on the face can be tightened, and sagging skin can be repaired. Facial contours can also be improved. In addition, wrinkles, fine lines, and creases around the nose, mouth, and eyes can be reduced or removed. These all provide a refreshed, youthful appearance that boosts self-esteem. The majority of patients feel more comfortable and confident in social and professional settings, as their outer appearance reflects the energetic, lively person within.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Male Facelift?
Generally, men in good health who have deep wrinkles or excess fat on the face and neck may be good candidates for a facelift. Patients are generally between 40 and 60 years old, however, facelifts can be successful on patients in their 70s and 80s who still have good skin elasticity. Men who are unhappy with the way their face has aged should consult with Dr. Zamora to find out if a facelift is the best treatment.
What Do I Need To Do Before A Male Facelift?
Prior to your procedure, the doctor may ask you to avoid sun exposure, smoking, or other activities that may affect skin elasticity. Be sure to tell our staff about any medications and supplements so we can advise you if there are any you need to stop taking. Many men choose to grow their hair out prior to a facelift procedure to help hide incisions while they heal.
What Should I Expect On The Day Of My Male Facelift?
Facelift procedures for men are outpatient. You will undergo anesthesia, so it will be helpful to bring someone to drive you home. Dr. Zamora will make several incisions from the temple behind the ears to the lower scalp. These will be carefully placed inside the hair. The skin is separated from the fat and muscle below. Excess fat may be trimmed or suctioned away. The skin and muscles are tightened and repositioned with absorbable sutures. Any excess is removed. Most patients do not have external sutures that would need to be removed.
How Long Does It Take To Perform A Male Facelift?
The procedure takes several hours. It may be possible to schedule more than one procedure at the same time. Plan to rest for the remainder of the day after your treatment.
What To Expect After A Male Facelift?
You may be able to participate in limited daily tasks within a day of your procedure. Plan to take about a week off from work to rest and allow the body to heal. You will need to keep the head elevated for several days afterward to promote optimal healing. Within the first week, be especially gentle with your face and hair. Dr. Zamora will give you grooming instructions and guidelines for physical activity. You will want to avoid anything strenuous, including heavy exercise or housework, for at least two weeks.
When Will I See The Results?
You may not see complete immediate results after a male facelift procedure. After several days you will see some results with continued improvement over time. Your appearance will continue to rejuvenate as the body heals over the following weeks.
How Long Will The Results Of A Male Facelift Last?
The effects of a male facelift can last for many years. Dr. Zamora tailors each procedure around the patient’s unique needs and facial features for long-lasting results. No one can stop the aging process entirely, so any continued aging will occur naturally.
