A facelift can drastically improve your appearance. Those who have sagging skin around the jawline and fine line wrinkling on the cheeks are prime candidates for this type of procedure. Men between the age of 35 and 50 often notice that excess fatty tissue accumulating on the lower portion of the face begins to pull the skin downward, affected by gravity.
A facelift for men can help to correct this problem. This surgical procedure can be tailored to the unique needs of men, and can yield positive results lasting for up to five years or more. We specialize in facelift treatment for mature men who want to restore a more youthful appearance to their facial features.
Why a Facelift for Men?
When fat is deposited underneath the skin on the face, it is pulled down by the force of gravity. The production of collagen tends to decrease after a man enters into his mature adult years. This is not a good combination. The skin is now less supported by the tissues that lie beneath, and the skin itself is now more brittle, holds less moisture and is more susceptible to wrinkling.
A facelift pulls the skin back upward. During the procedure, excess fatty tissue can be easily removed. Also, muscle tissue can be repositioned and some of it can be safely removed for the skin to become tauter.
How the Procedure Works
During a typical facelift procedure, the skin is lifted up and excess fatty tissue is removed. Some excess skin may be removed as well. After this is done, the skin is then pulled upward.
There are no known side effects associated with a facelift procedure. The results of the procedure will depend on multiple factors, including the firmness of the skin, its thickness and the amount of excess skin that will have to be removed. This is why it’s important to discuss all of the treatment options during a consultation.
Results will indeed vary, but whatever the outcome, the positive results will likely last for five years or more. Some men may benefit from a combined procedure that includes a neck lift as well as a facelift. The neck lift pulls the upper half of the neck skin upward.
