Male Facial Cosmetic Surgery
When a man plans to undergo facial or neck surgery, their selected surgeon must evaluate the entire head, face, and neck region to ensure an accurate assessment. Your correction plan can include minimally-invasive technique and surgical procedures (sometimes both) to address your concerns and achieve your desired results. Generally speaking, male facial skin has a richer blood supply than females. Men’s faces tend to bleed more during surgery, putting them at greater risk for forming temporary collections or a pooling of blood under their skin (a hematoma) after surgery. Residual scarring may be more difficult to hide since they typically do not wear makeup or style their hair toward their faces. Many factors must be considered when male facial cosmetic surgery is being performed.
Who Are the Ideal Candidates for Male Facial Cosmetic Surge
Men with facial or neck skin laxity who are in otherwise good health may be good candidates for male facial cosmetic surgery. An evaluation of your facial anatomy will help Dr. Wald determine which procedure can benefit you.
Slimmer Chin and Jawline
Fat or jowls can form beneath the chin as you age. Younger patients can benefit from facial liposuction, which removes fatty tissue. Older patients may need a full facelift and neck lift, which may include the removal of excess facial skin and tightening of the platysma muscles, which run down each side of the neck. Male facial and neck muscles are typically thicker than women but pose no challenge to an experienced surgeon like Dr. Wald.
More Defined Facial Contours
After a facelift and neck lift, the facial contours appear more youthful and tight. Skilled surgeons are experienced at performing male facelifts and other facial procedures that not only reduce the signs of aging but also maintain and preserve the masculine features. Hair-producing skin must be considered when conducting any facial surgery on a man, which Dr. Wald takes into account before creating a surgical plan.
