An increasing number of men are opting for facelifts to restore a more youthful, rejuvenated facial appearance. The procedure can make you fell younger and more handsome, boosting your self confidence. Board certified Alexandria plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman has helped many men turn back the clock to look and feel their best with a facelift.
There are certain subtle differences between the faces of men and women which must be addressed when performing a male facelift. Men have thicker facial skin and a richer blood supply in the region than women, increasing the risk of bleeding or hematoma. Also, since men do not wear makeup and generally have a higher hairline, the incision must be carefully placed to reduce visible scarring. Dr. Desman will take all of these factors into account when customizing your facelift to ensure that you receive the best possible results.
Am I a Candidate for a Male Facelift?
Ideal candidates for a male facelift:
- Are in good general health
- Have sagging in the cheeks, around the neck, and in the jaw line
- Have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure
A Different Approach to Facelifts
While the overall aesthetic goals of a facelift are similar for men and women, the surgery is approached a little differently. Dr. Desman employs several special techniques to address the unique physical attributes that distinguish a man’s face from a woman’s.
In order to ensure that your scars will be as undetectable as possible, Dr. Desman will place the incision along the crease where your ear meets the side of your face, around the earlobe, and along the lower scalp area under your hair. Fat and excess skin will then be removed, and Dr. Desman will tighten muscles and facial tissue in order to give you a more youthful appearance.
The majority of male facelifts specifically address wrinkles in the mid facial region, lower face, and jowls. If you are looking to address signs of aging around the eyelids or forehead, Dr. Desman may recommend blepharoplasty or a brow lift in conjunction with your facelift.
A Customized Procedure
Dr. Desman understands that to achieve exceptional results, your facelift must be customized to address your unique physical features and aesthetic goals. During the preoperative phase of the procedure, he will listen attentively to your desired outcome in order to more carefully address your needs. This attention to detail and commitment to highly personalized care have helped distinguish Dr. Desman as one of the finest plastic surgeons in Northern Virginia.
