Male Facelift

Dr. Imber has extensive experience in aesthetic surgery for men. He has performed thousands of facelifts, and emphasizes the point that men’s faces are different than women’s, and must be treated differently. That’s the first thing to understand. Men’s skin is different because of the presence of the beard, men age differently, and men expect different things from cosmetic surgery. 35% of our patients are men, and as a rule, their primary goal is simply to have their skin fit. Problem areas for men are loose skin of the jawline and neck, sagging cheeks, and bags under the eyes. All things that make them look tired and less vital.

Male Facelift Goals

The goal is to correct loose tissue, restore facial volume, and enhance the jawline and neck profile. A male facelift in New York focuses on maintaining and enhancing gender-specific facial anatomy, ensuring a natural-looking masculine aesthetic.

Male Facelift Candidates

You are a good male facelift candidate if you want to revitalize your face and get rid of signs of facial aging. Men who want to rejuvenate and enhance their face and neck profile are the best candidates for the procedure. Male patients who are generally healthy and have a positive outlook and realistic expectations may undergo facelift surgery.

What to Expect During Your Male Facelift

The male facelift is done by tightening sagging facial skin and underlying muscles in order to treat deep facial wrinkles and folds. The procedure relieves signs of aging in the face and neck area while creating a more defined jawline.

Recovering From Your Male Facelift

Following male facelift surgery, Dr. Imber might place dressings or bandages around the face and neck to reduce swelling and bruising. Patients are allowed to return to their normal activities after two weeks, and recovery lasts up to six weeks. You will be given specific instructions on how to treat your surgical sites, and certain medications may be prescribed for optimal healing.
