What are facelifts used for?

For both men and women, facelifts are intended to reverse visible signs of aging in the face and neck. This includes the appearance of drooping jowls, sagging neck skin, deep wrinkles and aging lines.

When done correctly, facelifts look like a natural aesthetic improvement rather than the overdone look that many people associate with cosmetic surgeries.

Who is a good candidate for a facelift?

Men who have any of the following issues could benefit from a facelift:

  • Sagging skin on the cheeks or jaw line
  • Lax muscle tissue in the cheeks
  • Loose, folding neck skin
  • Noticeable wrinkles around the mouth and nose
  • Drooping jowls

What can a male facelift achieve?

During a professional consultation, Dr. Maia will discuss the outcomes a patient can expect.

Overall, a male facelift can achieve a younger, more rugged and masculine appearance. Dr.Maia artistically combines face and neck lift to enhance masculine features like stronger jawline and contoured neck with minimal scar visibility.

Results generally last for about 10 years.

After your surgery

The days and weeks immediately following your surgery are critical to obtaining a good final result. Therefore, it is essential that you follow the post-op instructions provided by our office.

Some of the most common post-op instructions are:

  • Taking adequate time off work 1-2 weeks
  • Wearing bandages or tight compression garments
  • Getting enough rest
  • Avoiding sun exposure
  • Saying no to alcohol and smoking
  • Avoiding strenuous activity

To avoid post-operative problems, it’s important that you arrange to have a support person available to help for about a week after surgery. If you get the help and rest you need, you’ ll improve your chances of a quicker recovery and you may see your results a lot sooner.

Healing Process and Scars

The facelift operation is safe and well-tolerated by patients. Discomfort is minimal and recovery is rapid for most patients. The incisions are well hidden even on a close-up examination. During the early phases of the healing process, the incisions may be swollen, with some redness and tenderness, but over time they become softer. Dr. Maia uses cutting edge techniques to carefully elevate the skin and underlying tissues and deliver beautiful, natural results with scars that are nearly imperceptible. Some degree of bruising and swelling is to be expected. This will resolve in 7-10 days.

Who can perform a facelift?

Facelifts should always be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. A board-certified plastic surgeon is-able to offer the best, safest surgical outcomes.
