Men, Put Your Best Face Forward
- Posted on: Feb 22 2023
As the summer months approach, more and more people find themselves preparing their bodies for the warm weather. And while most people believe that plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures are only for women, the reality is that many men undergo plastic surgery procedures to achieve the appearance they desire. As we age, the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin can make us look older than we actually are. The good news is that there are several different surgical procedures that we offer at Azul® Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa that can rejuvenate your looks so that you can feel confident and ready to greet summer head on.
What Procedures Are Available to Rejuvenate My Facial Appearance?
While there are numerous cosmetic treatments that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in the face (such as dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic), surgical procedures are often the best choice for men looking for long-lasting results. Whether it’s a facelift, neck lift, eye lift, which is also known as a blepharoplasty, or a combination of procedures, you can achieve the look you’ve always wanted.
Facelift surgery is a cosmetic procedure in which wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin are corrected in the lower two-thirds of the face, from your cheeks down to your neck. For this procedure, an incision will be made at your temples, which then extends down the profile of your face, ending at the base of your scalp. Facial tissue and fat will be removed and/or repositioned, and excess skin will be surgically excised. Finally, the remaining skin will be pulled tight, and the incisions will be closed. With a Facelift, you can look forward to a smoother and more youthful appearance!
A neck lift is, in many ways, an extension of a facelift, since sagging skin on the neck will be addressed. For this procedure, an incision will be made on the underside of your chin, and excess skin will be surgically removed. The remaining skin will be pulled tight, and the incisions will be closed. Whether you struggle with neck banding, jowls, or the dreaded turkey neck, a neck lift procedure can help you achieve the contoured appearance you desire.
As we age, our eyes can become puffy and sagging skin can develop on our eyelids, sometimes even interfering with our vision. An eyelid lift helps you achieve a more youthful and awake appearance. You can choose to have upper blepharoplasty, which corrects sagging skin on your upper eyelid; lower blepharoplasty, which corrects sagging skin, puffiness, and bags under your lower eyelids; or a combination of both upper and lower eyelid surgery. For this procedure, your surgeon will make an incision in the natural creases of your upper eyelid for upper eyelid surgery, or your surgeon will make incisions just beneath your lower eyelashes or in the lower eyelid for lower eyelid surgery. Fat and tissue will be repositioned and/or removed, and any excess skin will be cut away to give you clearer looking eyes that complement your entire face.
Why Should I Think About Combining Procedures?
While each of these surgical procedures can offer men a more handsome appearance when performed by themselves, combining two or more of these cosmetic procedures can offer a more thorough and cohesive transformation. Since a facelift and neck lift only address the lower two-thirds of the face, the upper third can look out of place, if not addressed with the face and neck lift. Because of this, combining blepharoplasty with your facelift can give you a more balanced appearance so that you can turn heads on during those summer months for all the right reasons.
