More men are seeking ways to retain a youthful, vibrant appearance.  Cosmetic and Surgical options can help you look and feel more competitive at work and at play. Let’s consider the benefits of a male facelift and other cosmetic procedures.

Male Facelift – is it right for you?

If you are planning male facelift surgery or neck surgery, Dr Pooya will evaluate your entire head-face-neck region. Is the hairline receding? How full are the sideburns? Does the beard-growing skin extend up the cheeks or down the neck? Are there facial scars? Is the skin sun-damaged? Is the neck skin loose or drooping? In general, male facial skin has a richer blood supply than female facial skin. Men’s faces tend to bleed more during surgery and are at greater risk for forming a temporary collection or pooling of blood under the skin, called a hematoma, after male facelift surgery. Also, any residual scarring may be more difficult for men to hide, since they don’t wear make-up or style their hair toward their faces, as many women do.

Hair growth and beard growth may play a major role in the outcome of a male facelift. If you are balding or have thinning hair, surgical artistry may be required to hide the facelift incision, especially in the temple area. If the hair-bearing skin of your upper neck is pulled behind your ears during surgery, you may find that you must shave behind your ears or the back of your neck. However, sometimes electrolysis can correct this problem. Be sure to discuss these possibilities with Dr Pooya.

A fatty or “jowly” area beneath the chin is also a concern for many men. In younger patients, liposuction alone may be sufficient to correct the problem. Older patients may require a full male facelift and necklift, which may include the removal of excess skin and tightening the platysma muscles, which run down each side of the neck. These muscles are usually thicker in men than they are in women, but do not pose a greater challenge for your plastic surgeon.

“Refinishing” treatments for facial skin

Shaving must be postponed for about 3 weeks after a skin-smoothing treatment such as chemical peel or dermabrasion. Because these procedures strip away the surface layers of skin, you can expect your faces to remain sensitive, swollen and bright pink for several weeks after surgery. Some men are happy that the beard growth helps conceal the redness—especially if they feel uncomfortable using camouflage make-up. Men who feel self-conscious about their condition are also advised to give up alcoholic drinks for about 4 weeks. Alcohol causes the areas of treated facial skin to become noticeably red and flushed.

Changing the Facial Features

A male facelift can change and enhance your masculine appearance.  Cosmetic procedures such as eyelid surgery, nose surgery, and facial-implant surgery are performed essentially the same way for men and women. However, it’s important to let your surgeon know if you are seeking a more masculine look to your facial features—a chin with better projection, more prominent cheekbones, a stronger nose.
