4 Minute Read: 

While many people think that plastic surgery is meant only for women, plastic surgery procedures can help men look and feel better about themselves, especially as they age. 

With over 18,000 procedures performed in 2020, one of the most common and transformative cosmetic procedures available for men is facelift surgery

Middle-aged man looks at his reflection in the mirror while he pinches sagging skin in his cheeks.

The face is one of the most prominent areas of the body that men show their age. Wrinkles and fine lines form and as the skin produces less collagen and elastin. 

While this can be extremely frustrating, especially since these facial issues can cause you to look older and more worn down than you actually are, the good news is that a facelift can offer you stunning results to help you look younger than you have in years! 

Below, you will find information about facelift surgery, including some of the different options available.

How Is Facelift Surgery Performed?

For men, the key to a successful facelift procedure is the ability to maintain a masculine appearance while correcting the frustrating aesthetic concerns of age, such as loose and sagging skin, lines and wrinkles, and a worn out appearance. 

This procedure is performed under general anesthesia to ensure that you do not experience any pain or discomfort. 

Once the anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Calabria will make an incision on your face. The placement and length of this incision is dependent on the type of facelift you are having performed. 

After the incision is made, Dr. Calabria may remove and/or reposition the fat in your lower face (the area from the cheeks to the neck). Excess skin will be surgically trimmed away, and the remaining skin will be pulled tight to give you a smoother, more youthful appearance. 

What Are My Facelift Options?

Dr. Calabria is among the most skilled cosmetic surgeons to trust your facelift with. Not only does he have the knowledge, ability, and experience to perform your facelift surgery, but he is also dedicated to his patients. 

Dr. Calabria offers several different facelift techniques to help give you the results you desire. These techniques include:

  • Vertical facelift surgery: Instead of the remaining skin being pulled horizontally, the facial skin is pulled vertically to give you a more natural result
  • Regenerative facelift surgery: A traditional facelift is performed, while fat grafting is used to improve lost facial volume 
  • Tension-free facelift surgery: You can look forward to less visible scarring after your procedure because the tension on your incisions is relieved with the use of skin flaps (suspenders)
  • Stem-cell enhanced facelift surgery: In addition to the remarkable results offered by a traditional facelift, injections of stem cells (taken directly from your own fat) can help to restore the health, quality, and youthfulness of the facial tissues deep beneath the surface
  • One-stitch facelift surgery: Improvement to the cheeks is accomplished with the use of a single stitch

How Do I Know I’m Ready for a Facelift?

The truth is that men can undergo facelift surgery at any age. 

The best time to undergo a facelift depends on various factors, including lifestyle, life events, and genetics. However, many men tend to see the effects of age settling in during their early 50s. These effects can be distressing and cause men to feel self-conscious and even embarrassed by their facial appearances. 

By their late 50s, many men begin to consider facelift as an interventional procedure to reverse the signs of aging. With that being said, the right time for facelift surgery comes down to each individual man. 

If you find yourself in good health, but you are suffering from facial wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin, then facelift surgery may be a good option to help return you to the appearance you so desire. 

Like any surgical procedure, having a facelift is a major decision; however, the procedure can be transformational, especially when it is performed by a trusted professional like Dr. Calabria. 

Once your facelift recovery period is over, you can look forward to a more natural and youthful facial appearance that will have you feeling more confident and comfortable with your reflection in the mirror.
