Facelift Surgery for Men at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.
Performed at our Atlanta, Alpharetta, Cumming and Newnan, GA locations.
While most men agree that a little salt and pepper coloring in their hair may make them look more distinguished with age, many disagree that facial wrinkles do the same. That is why more and more men are undergoing facelift surgery to subtly improve the appearance of wrinkles on their face for a more youthful look. Whether you are an older man trying to compete in a youthful job market, or have just become unhappy with how certain aging and environmental factors have affected the appearance of your face over the years, male facelift surgery at Atlanta Plastic Surgery can be a viable option.
There are many variations of the male facelift: a full facelift that targets the appearance of aging on the entirety of the face, a lower male facelift that targets the neck and jowls, a mid male facelift targeting marionette lines and the area around the nose and mouth, and an upper male facelift targeting the eyes and furrows on the forehead. Any combination of these areas can be treated to achieve the desired look, depending on the needs of the male patient.
Many men’s main concern when it comes to facelift surgery is ensuring subtlety in results. The plastic surgeons at Atlanta Plastic Surgery use inconspicuous incisions and minimally invasive techniques to ensure naturalness and surgical discretion.
I have read that facelift procedures can sometimes make men appear more feminine. Is there way that I can avoid this?
The natural aging process can make the brow line descend, the cheeks appear less full, and the jowls sag, accentuating the jawline. Any of these changes can actually tend to make the face more masculine-looking, so procedures that correct these signs of aging do have the potential to make the face appear more feminine. However, the goal of a modern facelift is to subtly lift and smooth the facial tissues without significantly altering the patient’s overall appearance, so every facelift procedure is individually customized to the specific idiosyncrasies of each patient’s own physiology. Targeted techniques, like brow lifts, eyelid surgery, and mini-facelifts, address only the areas of the face that are in need of attention without over-correcting the appearance of the face as a whole. This more subtle and specialized approach lifts and firms while avoiding the feminine appearance often associated with more youthful facial features.
Are there any potential risks that are specifically associated with male facelift procedures?
In general, male facial skin has a richer blood supply than female facial skin, so male faces will usually bleed more during surgery and may have a greater likelihood of experiencing bruising after the procedure. In some cases, post-surgical scarring may be more difficult for men to conceal, since they generally do not wear make-up or style their hair towards their faces, as many women do. Special care may also need to be taken to hide the facelift incisions in cases of men who are balding or who have thinning hair. This can often be more easily accomplished with a short-scar mini-facelift procedure, which uses special techniques to achieve rejuvenation of the mid-face using only a few small, unobtrusive incisions. During your consultation, our board-certified plastic surgeons will carefully examine your individual requirements and work with you to formulate a surgical plan that will achieve seamless, natural looking facelift results.
