Facelift For Men
Facelifts are a very common surgical procedure for men of all ages. Whether you’re unhappy with your facial appearance due to genetics, changes in weight, or because of the natural aging process, facelifts can help. There are several types of facelift procedures designed to address your individual cosmetic concerns. Most patients opt to add additional procedures at the same time such as upper and/or lower eyelid lifts, fat transfer to the face, or laser skin resurfacing. At Image Surgical Arts of Nashville, we incorporate advanced technology into our facelifts for improved long-lasting results.
A Facelift Can:
- Remove excess fat and skin
- Tone underlying muscles
- Treat skin laxity
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Boost self-image and confidence
How Does It Work?
Facelifts are done as an outpatient procedure in Image Surgical Arts’ surgical center. A well-hidden incision is made to reduce undesirable facial features and enhance the natural structure of your face. Excess skin and fat are removed while underlying muscles are tightened with advanced ultrasound-assisted technology. Some facelifts can be performed in as little as 2-3 hours. Dr. Harris works closely with each patient to give them a customized surgery with as little downtime as possible.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Results from a facelift are immediate. You will appear healthier, more relaxed, and youthful. Most patients report feeling that they look 10-15 years younger after a facelift. Continued improvement will occur as swelling subsides over the course of a 2-week period. Final results may not be evident until of 3-months post-procedure. Although it’s natural for some laxity to return, maintenance procedures are not generally necessary.
Does It Hurt?*
Your procedure will be done under IV sedation and a local anesthetic or, more commonly, with general anesthesia. Pain levels will be their highest 2-3 days post-surgery. Most patients state they are surprised by the lack pain associated with their facelifts. In most cases, you’ll experience a rapid decrease in pain after only a few days. Any discomfort can easily be managed with OTC or prescription medication during this time. Full recovery will take anywhere from 7-14 days based on your body’s natural healing process.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Males who are in good general health, are non-smokers and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for them typically have the best outcome. At your in-person consultation, Dr. Harris will help determine what procedures will help you achieve your end-goals. Dr. Harris requires all facelift patients to abstain from nicotine for six weeks before and after surgery.
