What Facial Procedure Is Best Based on Your Age?

We all experience aging–there’s no doubt about that. But did you know that there are specific treatments that can benefit you best, depending on your age? Understanding your skin needs for each stage of life can optimize your aesthetic treatments, keeping you looking your best while saving you time and money in the long run. 

While everyone will age at different rates, depending on skin condition, lifestyle choices, and genetics, we’ve compiled a list of possible skin and aging concerns throughout key life stages so you can choose the best treatment for you. 

Skin Care for Men in their 30s

For many men, their 30s might be too early to start thinking about plastic surgery for aging concerns. However, it’s never too early to take care of your skin. After around age 20, collagen production begins to slow, so we start seeing fine lines, wrinkles, and a loss of volume. 

Your 30s are a great time to jumpstart collagen production again through minimally invasive procedures. At this stage, it’s also a good idea to incorporate a more involved skincare routine and maintenance to prevent premature aging and the need for surgery. 

Microneedling with PRP is a minimally invasive procedure that can boost collagen production, improve skin texture, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Combining the healing properties of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and microneedling is a fantastic way to improve your skin and prevent future aging concerns. 

Laser skin resurfacing is highly recommended for men, regardless of age. This procedure works by resurfacing the top layers of the skin so that new, undamaged skin is revealed. The result is improved tone and texture and is especially beneficial for hyperpigmentation, rosacea, redness, sun damage, and early signs of aging. 

Procedures for Men in their 40s

While it may still be too early for a facelift, by the time a man is in his 40s, he probably has a good idea of what he likes or doesn’t like about his appearance. Some signs of aging will begin to crop up, especially around the eyes and forehead, but for the most part, many men will need only minimal surgical revision. 

Your 40s can be a great time to consider augmenting or altering your facial features to suit your needs. Many men don’t realize the benefits of plastic surgery beyond anti-aging procedures, even though facial implants are a fantastic way to improve your aesthetic and boost confidence. Under the care of an experienced male facial surgeon, augmenting your chin or jawline can be a subtle, natural-looking way to get the look you’ve always wanted. 

Additionally, blepharoplasty can subtly yet effectively reduce the appearance of tired, worn-out eyes for instant rejuvenation. If you’re wondering why you always have bags under your eyes, even with a good night’s sleep, you may be surprised that it has little to do with the amount of rest you’re getting. Factors such as genetics can cause the muscles in your eyes to weaken, which allows small pockets of fat to accumulate underneath your eyes. A simple lower blepharoplasty can remove these pockets and refresh you instantly. 

Procedures for Men in their 50s

Around age 50 is usually when men start seriously thinking about cosmetic surgery. However, choosing the proper procedure for your needs is critical. While a facelift is the gold standard of facial rejuvenation, there are many types of facelifts. Be sure to discuss your options with a surgeon specializing in male facial surgery to decide on the best procedure for you and your needs. 

A one-stitch facelift is a less invasive procedure that lifts the mid-face for a natural-looking rejuvenation, with less downtime, recovery, and visible scarring than alternative procedures. This procedure can restore a youthful look without looking overdone if you have moderate facial sagging, a loss of volume, and prominent wrinkles. 

While lower blepharoplasty is more relevant for younger patients, upper blepharoplasty becomes more relevant with age. If you’re experiencing upper sagging eyelids, you probably know how it can make you look older than you actually are. People may even assume you are tired or unalert because of the excess skin above your eyes. Upper blepharoplasty reduces this concern to give you a more open, alert appearance that instantly turns back the clock—without being overly noticeable. 

Procedures for Men in their 60s

Your 60s are probably when you’re seeing more substantial facial aging: deeper wrinkles and sagging skin around the forehead and brows, the formation of some loose jowls or banding around the neck, and even some sagging skin around the mid-face and mouth. 

But even if it’s time for facial rejuvenation surgery, most men still want to know their results will look natural. That’s why seeing a male facial surgery specialist, such as Dr. Renato Calabria, is essential. Dr. Calabria specializes in male plastic surgery, using his extensive knowledge of male anatomy and the needs of his male patients to provide long-lasting, impactful, yet entirely natural-looking results. Just see for yourself with his impressive before and after pictures.

The vertical facelift is the ideal procedure for any man with facial aging. The techniques that Dr. Calabria uses are the product of years of perfecting what male patients need. Rather than pulling the skin and tissues sideways, like traditional facelifts, this procedure involves pulling them up on a vertical plane. This eliminates the risk of that overdone, wind swept look typical of too many “botched” male facelifts. 

Pair this with a neck lift to reduce jowls and neck banding, revealing the muscular contours of your jawline and chin, as well as an endoscopic brow lift to smooth and open up the eyes and forehead, and all of your facial aging needs are covered.
