What are Male Facelift Procedures?
In today’s world, a man must look and feel his very best to keep up in a fast-paced professional environment. The number of male patients undergoing cosmetic facial surgeries has more than doubled in recent years and shows no signs of slowing down. Dr. Mendieta is highly skilled at performing male facial procedures to improve the appearance of the face, neck, jawline, nose, and ears, ultimately preserving his patients’ masculine qualities and producing subtle enhancement.
Dr. Mendieta offers several procedures that can help men from all walks of life look and feel younger, more attractive, and more masculine. Procedures such as a facelift and neck lift can take years off the face while preserving rugged features. An eyelid lift can help brighten the eyes, while chin augmentation can help give men the profile they’ve always desired. Dr. Mendieta can work with you to see which procedures will provide you with the rejuvenating results you want.
Any man who is looking to improve or enhance his facial features can be a good candidate for male facial surgery. Men who have concerns about sagging skin or fatty areas around their neck and chin, referred to as “jowls”, are good candidates for facelift or neck lift procedures. Cosmetic surgery can be a good way for men to enhance or create attractive, rugged facial contours like strong cheekbones or a defined jawline. Men who want to feel younger and look more refreshed can also benefit from male facial surgery.
Dr. Mendieta offers several facial procedures that can be tailored to address every man’s unique needs and concerns:
Facelift: This procedure helps smooth deep lines and tightens sagging skin, leading to a more refreshed appearance. Dr. Mendieta uses incisions along the hairline or near the ears to lift and tighten facial tissues. With male patients, Dr. Mendieta considers factors specific to men, such as thicker neck and facial muscles, to develop a surgical plan that leaves results looking as natural as possible.
Neck lift: The neck can be an area that shows visible signs of aging early, particularly in men, who have to contend with deep jowls or saggy skin. A neck lift helps rejuvenate the appearance of that area by getting rid of fatty deposits and tightening sagging skin for a more defined, shapely look. A neck lift can be combined with a facelift or other facial procedures for optimal results.
Brow lift: Brow lift surgery corrects signs of aging in the upper face and forehead, such as drooping brows and forehead wrinkles. Dr. Mendieta offers traditional brow lift surgery, which uses small incisions along the hairline, and endoscopic brow lift surgery, which uses a small camera inserted into tiny incisions, to lift forehead muscles and remove excess skin.
Eyelid lift: An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, helps correct excess or sagging skin along the eyelids and general eye area. Dr. Mendieta offers upper and lower blepharoplasty to reduce the appearance of puffiness, get rid of unsightly bags under the eyes, and even help improve vision that can be hampered by excess skin or drooping eyelids.
Chin augmentation: This procedure enhances the jawline and chin by using implants for a more defined appearance. For men, chin augmentation can improve a recessed or “weak” chin to create a strong, defined, and masculine-looking jawline. The procedure can also be combined with other facial surgeries.
Rhinoplasty: Known commonly as a “nose job”, rhinoplasty is used to enhance, re-size, and re-shape the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty can also be used to correct nasal blockages. Dr. Mendieta can use incisions on the outside or the inside of the nose to perform this procedure. For men, rhinoplasty can correct a crooked or too-large nose, restoring facial balance while still maintaining a strong, masculine profile.
Ear pinning: Also referred to as otoplasty, this procedure helps re-shape one or both ears. Dr. Mendieta uses incisions behind the ear to correct ears that are too large, sit asymmetrically, or protrude too much. Ear pinning can also be combined with other procedures for the best results.
Recovery time can vary from patient to patient and depends on the procedures that are performed. Some procedures can take as little as an hour to complete with minimal downtime, while others can take several hours and require weeks of recovery. Typically, men will experience some pain, discomfort, and swelling in the first few weeks following surgery. Many men may feel as if they have to “tough it out”, but it is important to ask for and accept help, at least in the first few days after your surgery. The more you prepare for your surgery and recuperation, the better the whole recovery process—and final results—will be.
Within six to eight weeks, patients should be on their way or fully recovered, and the final results will be visible. The procedures offered by Dr. Mendieta are designed to create the most natural-looking enhancement without an obvious “windblown” look. Not only do results look natural, they naturally age with the patient, providing a long-lasting, rejuvenating boost. Men who decide to undergo facial surgery will typically find themselves with a refreshed, revitalized appearance and an increase in self-esteem.
