Facelifts for men at South Coast Plastic Surgery
Do you feel like your sagging skin and facial wrinkles are making you look older than you really feel? Are you looking to have the jaw line and neck that you’ve always wanted? Then it’s time to introduce yourself to facelifts for men at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!
What is a Facelift for Men?
A facelift for men is exactly what it sounds like – a surgical procedure designed just for men to lift and reposition facial skin for a more youthful appearance. Our plastic surgeons don’t pull, they lift with the goal being a natural result that doesn’t look like you’ve had surgery.
Our team of male plastic surgeons knows how to tailor surgery to men because they may have very different goals from women. Men often seek out a facelift to minimize their wrinkles and lines without looking “overdone” or like they’ve had surgery. The facelift for men targets aging symptoms without overdoing it, leaving patients looking younger and more alert, but still seasoned.
How Does It Work?
A facelift for men requires a high level of skill and expertise because most men don’t have long hair to hide the scars from surgery like women can. Our plastic surgeons are both fellowship trained in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. The surgery begins with incisions being made following the natural shadows of the ears and underneath the chin; these incisions are very small, which helps reduce the signs of post-surgical scarring. Your plastic surgeon uses the incisions to access drooping facial muscles around the mid-to-lower facial areas, where sagging skin is most prominent. After this stage, your plastic surgeon will trim excess skin to help show off your newly youthful profile. The surgery – which usually takes about two to three hours – ends with the incisions being closed.
Am I a Good Candidate For a Facelift for Men?
You’re a good candidate for a facelift for men if you have moderate to severe facial sagging, especially along the jawline and cheeks. Many candidates for this surgery have excess facial wrinkles, as well as drooping eyelids and eyebrows. All candidates need to be healthy nonsmoking individuals who have realistic expectations for this procedure.
Most men have not had good skincare or used sunscreen well, which is what led to early aging. Our surgeons will create a customized skincare treatment plan which will include nonsurgical treatments like Hydrafacial and Botox or Jeuveau to help improve the skin. They may also recommend energy-based treatments like Halo and BBL to get rid of wrinkles and improve the quality and texture of the skin and address any brown and red spots you might have.

What Results Will I See?*
Most patients begin to see their results immediately with final swelling resolving about a month after their facelift surgery. Patients can expect to see their sagging skin and heavy necks improved. The skin quality will improve with the right regimen that your surgeons at South Coast Plastic Surgery will come up for you. Results will include a contoured jawline and a slimmer facial profile.
What is the Recovery Like?*
Recovery usually takes about a month; the first week can be the most uncomfortable, so we suggest patients take this time off from work. Most men can get back to working from home or their laptops and emails within 3-4 days after surgery. You’ll be spending the majority of time healing, so we recommend arranging support to be at home during the first few days after your procedure.
Most patients are able to return to work after a week (sometimes even sooner) and resume their normal exercise routines after about three to four weeks.
