Procedures to improve facial aging is not the same for men as it is for women as the procedure can be more complex. Men, are also commonly coined to have a rugged look and a firm, contoured jawline resulting in more self-consciousness. Dr. Basile can help restore your youthful look with a Facelift specifically for men.
About a male Facelift
A facelift for men can remove excess skin and fat caused by the natural effects of aging. During a facelift, men commonly couple a brow lift or chin augmentation to enhance the jawline and youthful appearance. The procedure consists of various skin and fat removal techniques based on the case to reshape and restore the contours of the jawline.
Am I a good candidate?
Common male candidates are generally between the age of 40 and 65 and are seeking to rejuvenate their face and neck contours. This procedure is not for those seeking to alter their underlying facial structures, rather tighten and tone what currently exists. Candidates must also be in good health.
How is a Facelift performed?
Some facelift procedures can be performed right in Dr. Basile’s Jacksonville office or he may suggest using a local surgery center. Based on your target areas, Dr. Basile will perform either a traditional or limited facelift. For a traditional, the incision will be placed around the ear through the temples. A limited incision is made when addressing sagging jowls and will wrap around the ear.
Results and Recovery
Depending on the specifications of the procedure, you should expect one to two weeks of downtime. As the incisions were placed within concealable areas, scarring can usually be hidden and will gradually fade over time. Full healing will take approximately two to three months, but you will be ready to return to normal activity within two weeks.
