Face lift for men

Face lift for men is becoming increasingly more popular in the United States. A face lift for men can greatly enhance the aesthetic attractiveness of a patient's face, visually subtracting years from a patient's appearance. There are several reasons why face lift for men is becoming increasingly desirable. Men are becoming more aware of the benefits of a more youthful and attractive appearance in the business and social world. It is also becoming more acceptable for males to be concerned with their aesthetic qualities in addition to other desirable traits.

Men often seek a face lift for men because they are concerned about droopiness in their face and neck area, and heaviness in the jowl area. A good candidate for a face lift for men is any male in good physical and psychological health who wishes to enhance their physical appearance through cosmetic surgery. A typical patient who seeks a face lift for men is between the ages of thirty and seventy. Men are good candidates for a face lift because their skin is often thicker and less wrinkly than women's skin. Good skin tone usually correlates with better face lift for men results.

There are a number of special considerations regarding a face lift for men. Because men do not often have the option of concealing scars under their hair, the incisions made during a face lift for men must be placed strategically and inconspicuously. The incisions made during a face lift for men are generally made in the natural crease of the sideburn, inside the ear or around the earlobe, under the chin, or back into the hairline. All incisions will be made to be as inconspicuous as possible after the face lift for men procedure.

Men also have more blood vessels in their face than female patients, which is another special consideration related to a face lift for men. More blood vessels in the face may mean that a male face lift patient's blood will take longer to clot before and after a face lift for men. For this reason it is important for male patients to follow all surgical aftercare instructions to avoid the possibility of complications.

As with all surgical procedures, a face lift for men does carry some risks that patients should be aware of. There are surgical risks, those related to anesthesia, and complications with healing. These face lift for men side effects are rare and can be mitigated by using a competent surgeon and following all instructions. Face lift for men patients should expect to be out of work for at least a week while recovering. In addition, patients should refrain from a number of activities during the first few weeks of recovery. These activities may include working, exercising, sexual activity, strenuous activities, smoking, the use of certain medications, and more.
