Are You a Candidate?

A surgical facelift may be the right choice for you if you are concerned about any of the following:

  • Skin laxity that leads to the formation of jowls along the jawline
  • Loss of volume in the midface that causes hollowing under the cheeks
  • Submental fat underneath the chin and loose skin on the front of the neck

Dr. Saad will carefully evaluate your situation to determine whether a facelift is the right surgical choice for you. It is not unusual for men to combine a lift with other treatments to further enhance their masculine facial profile. Complementary procedures include chin augmentation, nose reshaping, and eyelid surgery. Dr. Saad offers all of these options for male patients, focusing on maintaining a rugged appearance while making subtle enhancements that refresh and rejuvenate your facial features.

Before Your Facelift

Dr. Saad will meet with you before your surgery to discuss your precise concerns and determine whether a facelift will meet your expectations. Because it is not unusual for men to feel apprehensive about undergoing plastic surgery, he will address any concerns you might have in order to leave you feeling comfortable about your upcoming procedure. You will have all the time necessary to ask questions so that you are prepared both physically and mentally for your surgery.

Considerations for a Male Facelift

There are significant differences in facelift procedure techniques for men vs. women:

Incisions and Hairlines

While incisions for a female facelift are made around the ear and in the hairline, this placement does not work for men due to their facial hair. If the skin in the lower face is pulled back in a similar fashion to what is done for women, it can create awkward positioning of hair follicles and give the appearance of hair growing unnaturally close to the ears.

Dr. Saad will place incisions to ensure a natural facial hairline, as well as normal positioning of sideburns. He will also use care to create incisions that will minimize any visible scarring after your procedure. At the same time, Dr. Saad understands that a man’s skin tends to be thicker and more vascular, so he will utilize techniques to make your procedure both safe and effective as he works to achieve your specific aesthetic goals.

Focus of Surgery

Women typically want their facelift to leave them with smoother, wrinkle-free skin, and a sleeker facial contour overall. Men are not as concerned with smoothing away all the lines and creases that give them a more distinguished look, but they do worry that jowl formation along the jawline interferes with their strong, masculine profile. Sagging skin around the neck is also a common worry for men, but they want the result of surgery to correct the turkey wattle without compromising the integrity of the lower face.

About Your Surgery

Dr. Saad will probably perform your facelift using general anesthesia, so you are comfortably asleep throughout your surgery. Once the incisions are made, Dr. Saad repositions underlying muscle and tissue to create a more youthful, manly profile before re-draping skin over the area. The surgery takes about two hours to complete, and you will spend some time under observation in our recovery area before you are released to go home. If you have other procedures at the same time as your facelift, both your surgical and recovery time may be somewhat longer.

The Recovery Process

There is some swelling and bruising after a facelift, but discomfort is typically minimal with this procedure. Dr. Saad will send you home with instructions on how to minimize side effects and care for your incisions during those early days after your procedure. While men usually feel ready to return to activities within a week or so, some choose to wait a bit longer to ensure that signs of the surgery have completely subsided.

The results of your facelift will be evident right after surgery and will continue to improve as your face heals fully. Your refreshed appearance should extend for a number of years, particularly if you protect your skin from the sun, and use high-quality skin care products. Over time, you may begin to see aging symptoms creep in once again, prompting you to seek additional treatments to maintain your younger look.

Women are not the only patients that can benefit from a facelift. Contact Dr. Saad’s office to find out if a male facelift might help you reach your personal aesthetic goals.
