What is a Male Facelift?
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin in order to remove unwanted wrinkles and other visible signs of aging on the face and removing fat or excess skin when needed. A male facelift is a procedure designed specifically to address the needs of a man's face, taking into account the facial contours of a man as opposed to a woman and the different needs that such differences pose.
What are the Benefits of a Male Facelift?
Many factors can lead to the loss of youthful contours and sharp, masculine facial definition, such as gravity, lifestyle, heredity, diet, and stress. A male facelift can remedy the following inadequacies in a man’s face that often intensify the tired, older, less energetic appearance:
- Sagging skin.
- Deep bags, creases, and puffiness under the eyes.
- Lines, wrinkles, and skin creases around major facial features.
- Deep expression lines around the nose and corners of the mouth.
- Cheekbones that appear sunken in due to fat tissue that has shifted or dropped.
- The look of jowls because of a loss of elasticity and firmness around the mouth and jawline.
- Double chin.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Male Facelift?
If you find yourself feeling self-conscious about lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, jowls, and/or sunken cheekbones, you may be an ideal candidate for a male facelift, as long as you are in overall good health and have realistic expectations about the results of facelift surgery. You should schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Buinewicz to determine if a male facelift is the right solution for you.
How Is a Male Facelift Performed?
Dr. Buinewicz begins the procedure by creating a hidden incision in the hairline, near the temple, which then goes around each ear, and ends in the scalp near the neck. Once this incision has been made, he shapes a more defined profile by carefully transferring fat and other tissue from the face, neck, and jowls to other areas such as the cheekbones. In general, the facial muscles are also lifted and tightened as well. The skin is then carefully spread out over the newly shaped contours of the face, and any loose or excess skin may be removed. Sometimes, another incision is created underneath the chin to trim and tighten any loose skin around the neck and throat.
Why Choose Dr. Buinewicz for Male Facelift?
There are several significant differences between male and female facelift procedures, therefore, when choosing a doctor to perform a male facelift, it is extremely important that you choose one who has considerable knowledge, skill, training, and experience performing them. Such differences include:
- Men's faces contain more blood vessels.
- The beard line must be left intact in order to create a completely natural look.
- There is not as much hair on a man's head in which to conceal incision scarring.
It is extremely important that a man’s face not have that "pulled tight" look afterward. If he does not retain some sense of natural ruggedness, a man will appear as if he has "had some work done.” Dr. Buinewicz is an expert in the field of male cosmetic procedures, and you can rest assured that he has the knowledge, the experience, and the skill necessary when it comes to successfully executing this surgery.
How Much Does a Male Facelift Cost?
The overall total cost of this particular procedure will vary from patient to patient as it depends on each individual's areas of concern and the intricacy of their surgery. In some situations, a patient may choose to enhance the results of their facelift with other non-surgical treatments and procedures, such as dermal fillers, to further complement their facelift.
