Depending upon your individual needs, a surgical facelift at Yarish Plastic Surgery may be the right answer to move toward the appearance you desire. While skin rejuvenators, fillers and injections can have great effects, they usually work best in small areas and for specific conditions. If you’re dealing with a long list of things you want to see improvement for, especially those caused by aging, a facelift designed for men is one choice. It’s the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and age-related sagging in your midface, under your chin and jaw, and “marionette” lines around your mouth. A facelift does this by removing excess skin, tightening underlying tissues, and realigning skin on the face and neck for a younger appearance.
When to Consider It
Our medical staff will discuss the procedure in detail with you, and show you possible and desired results, with the assistance of computer imaging. A facelift aids male patients with sagging, older-looking facial contours, or a double chin, “turkey neck” (loose skin on the chin and neck) or noticeable hanging jowls. There are several different techniques used in facelifts, each working best for different needs, so the right option to achieve your goals will be planned during your consultation. Patients also are screened for their ability to tolerate surgery and overall general health.
What Happens During A Facelift
Our surgical procedures are performed by Dr. Scott Yarish, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience and a passion for ensuring an aesthetic, natural appearance for his patients.
Incisions are made within the hairline above the ear, continuing downward and behind the earlobe, and back into the hair. It is not necessary to shave hair for the procedure, and the incision lines are thin. Next, facial skin is separated from the fat and muscle underneath, then pulled up and backward in the temple and ear areas, with the excess removed.
Sagging muscles and connective tissues are tightened, and any fat deposits are removed or repositioned to aid in a younger appearance, before the incisions are closed and the procedure is completed.
What To Expect Afterward
A facelift is a minor surgery, and patients should expect some postoperative swelling, possible bruising as your skin and tissues heal, and minimal postoperative pain, which can be easily controlled with prescription medication. Most swelling and discoloration will subside within two to three weeks, and full activities may be resumed in a month.
And, we’re not going to send you out the door unprepared; both before and after a facelift, skin care treatment specifically for men will be provided by one of our on-staff aestheticians to help you make the most out of your improved appearance and maintain it in the future.
Patients report finding they have a more natural, younger and more rested-looking appearance. The most improvement is apparent in the first two to three weeks, with continued improvement and “smoothing out” of the facial appearance over six to nine months as you fully heal and your body adjusts to the new contours.
