A facelift or rhytidectomy continues to be among the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the US. In fact, not only is it popular among women, but more men are also choosing to refresh and rejuvenate their face with a facelift. The facelift for men can provide unique results for men wanting to look younger, and boost self-confidence.
Why men get a facelift
Men’s aesthetic surgery is on the rise, and more men are undergoing a facelift in order to rejuvenate their face. Not only do they want to look good, but they also want to stay competitive in the job market. An increasing number of men believe that if they are fitter and look younger, then they have a better chance of succeeding on the job.
The facelift for men can address several signs of aging such as sagging of the face and neck. There are different techniques that can be used to perform the facelift, but these will be discussed during consultation with the plastic surgeon.
The incisions for the facelift are usually made around the hairline, as well as within the crease at the front of the ear. During surgery the underlying facial tissues are tightened, and the excess skin and fat is also removed.
After the operation there will be some swelling and bruising, but this usually settles in about 3 weeks. Final results will take about 1 to 2 months to be seen.
The facelift for men should be performed by plastics surgeons that are experienced in face-lifting surgery,who can achieve natural looking results.
