What is a Male Facelift?
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is defined as a surgical procedure that removes unwanted wrinkles and imperfections in the skin by tightening the skin of the face and, in some cases, removing or transferring fatty tissue and/or excess skin to new areas. A male facelift is a rhytidectomy procedure designed specifically to improve the facial contour of men’s faces, taking into consideration the specific factors that make a male facelift different from a facelift performed on a woman.
What are the Benefits of a Male Facelift?
The loss of youthful contours and masculine definition in the face are the results of many factors, including heredity, gravity, and lifestyle, as well as environmental conditions, diet and stress levels. A male facelift can correct the following imperfections in men’s faces that often exaggerate the visible signs of aging and make men look more tired, less alert, and less vibrant than they actually feel. Among the conditions that a male facelift can correct are the following:
- Sagging skin across the center of the face.
- Deep creases, bags, and puffiness beneath the lower eyelids.
- Wrinkles, lines and creases around the eyes, nose and mouth.
- Deep folds and creases extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
- Sunken cheekbones and fatty deposits on the face that have dropped or shifted.
- Loss of elasticity, smoothness, and firmness in the mouth and chin area that create the appearance of jowls.
- Loose sagging skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw that give the appearance of a double chin and make men look older than their actual age
Who is a Good Candidate for a Male Facelift?
Men who are beginning to notice wrinkles and creases, sagging jowls and sunken cheekbones, as well as wrinkles and lines around the eyes and mouth, may be excellent candidates for a male facelift, assuming they are in overall good health. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rubinstein today to assess whether or not a male facelift could be right for you.
How Is the Male Facelift Performed?
A traditional facelift is done by creating an inconspicuous incision that typically starts in the hairline at the temples, continues around the ear, and ends in the lower scalp. Once the incision is made, Dr. Rubinstein will delicately reposition fat and underlying tissue from the face, jowls, and neck to other areas such as cheekbones, to create a more defined and youthful contour. Typically, the muscles of the face are also lifted and sculpted. Skin is then gently draped over the uplifted contours and loose, excess skin may be removed. In some cases, a second incision is used under the chin to sculpt and tighten sagging skin in the neck.
Why Choose Dr. Rubinstein for Male Facelift?
When choosing a doctor to perform a male facelift, it is extremely important to select one who has extensive experience performing this procedure on men because there are actually significant differences in male and female rhytidectomy. The differences include such factors as men’s faces containing more blood vessels, the beard line which must be taken into consideration for a totally natural appearance, and the fact that men often have less hair on their heads than women with which to conceal the incision scars. It is also of utmost importance that a man’s face retain some of its natural ruggedness and not appear “pulled tight” after the procedure. Dr. Rubinstein is an expert in cosmetic procedures specifically performed on male patients, and you can be confident that he understands all the details of performing this surgery on men.
How Much Does a Male Facelift Cost in Miami?
The cost of a male facelift may vary from patient to patient, depending on the patient’s particular problem areas and the complexity of the treatment. In some cases, the facelift is augmented with dermal fillers or other non-surgical procedures to further enhance a man’s youthful appearance. As with most elective cosmetic procedures, insurance carriers do not typically cover facelifts, but Dr. Rubinstein’s office makes the procedure affordable by offering easy financing
options and accepting payments in the form of cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
