Scheduling a pre-surgical consultation with Dr. Daniel is the first step in ensuring that you see the best outcome from your procedure. During this appointment, Dr. Daniel will review your appearance concerns with you and explain in greater detail the results you can expect from a facelift.
Because the facelift focuses on the lower face and jowls in particular, men with a heavy or fallen brow line may be better candidates for a forehead lift instead of or in addition to a facelift. Similarly, men with droopy, tired-looking eyes may consider combining eyelid surgery with their facelift.
A facelift can provide dramatic results for men who want to accentuate their facial structure and regain a more youthful look. This procedure can be ideal for correcting deep wrinkles and creases around the mouth or eliminating significant jowling that disguises your jawline, and can lift sagging skin through the low face and upper neck.
If performed without proper attention to the masculine facial structure, a facelift can create a “feminine” look due to the smoothing of facial contours and creases. In order to ensure a flattering yet masculine final result, care should be taken when selecting your plastic surgeon.
Dr. Daniel believes that the best facelift results come from a customized approach to each surgery. During facelift procedures for male patients, he takes special care to maintain the masculine facial structure by offering a variety of options for surgery:
An incision is made in the hairline near the temple and continues behind the ear to the hairline base at the lower scalp.
Fat is removed or reshaped to enhance facial contours and lax muscles may be lifted, along with the removal of excess skin.
For some patients, another incision may be made below the chin.
In a limited incision facelift, shorter incisions are made at the temples or around the ears, and sometimes in the chin or lower eyelid.
This procedure is less invasive and produces minimal scarring, though may provide less extensive results.
An incision begins at the earlobe and follows the crease behind the ear, ending in the hairline.
Droopy skin is lifted and smoothed and any excess is removed for a firmer profile.
Exact healing time varies among different patients. Generally, swelling and bruising around your incision sites should begin to subside within 2 to 3 weeks after your procedure. Healing should continue improving for the next 1 to 2 months. By about 6 months after surgery, your incision marks should be almost invisible.
After your facelift, sagging skin around your face and neck should appear smoother and have a firmer texture. Creases and wrinkles around the mouth should be minimized, and your jawline should appear more sharply defined jawline. Your final results should look revitalized and younger in a way that brings out the best in your natural features.
