Facelift for Men
Male Facelift Surgery in Seattle
The confidence of knowing you look your very best
You know that looking healthy and vibrant are key to making the right impression, but the aging process can make it difficult to put your best face forward. As we get older, skin loses elasticity and our faces lose youthful volume, both leading to sagging and jowling in the lower and mid-face.
A facelift can effectively address these issues by lifting and remodeling deep facial tissues, removing excess skin, and restoring a smoother, firmer and better defined jawline. A facelift can help you look years younger—with results that can last a decade.
Trust your appearance to an experienced facelift surgeon
Men have unique needs for facelift surgery—with thicker skin and a broader facial structure, you need a facelift surgeon who is skilled in techniques that preserve your naturally masculine features. Board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Alex Sobel has extensive experience performing facelifts for male patients and prides himself on achieving strong improvements that look completely natural for each patient.
Is a facelift the right option for me?
If you are bothered by visible jowling, sagging facial features and moderate-to-deep folds, then facelift surgery can be a great option to address your concerns and restore a better refreshed, youthful appearance.
A facelift concentrates on the middle and lower face (the zone between your cheeks and neck). If you are bothered by a sagging brow or eyelids, a facelift alone will not be the best option—eyelid or brow lift surgery can address these issues. During your private consultation, Dr. Sobel will evaluate your concerns and discuss with you the procedure options that will best achieve your goals.
About facelift surgery for men in Seattle
Dr. Sobel performs facelift surgery at his private, fully accredited surgical suite in Bellevue. Depending on the extent of surgery and your preferences, he can perform surgery using local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia.
Facelift incisions are located in the natural skin folds in front of and behind the ear, in line with your natural beard line. Through these incisions, Dr. Sobel will separate the skin from the underlying facial tissues, lift and tighten these underlying tissues, and then replace the skin with a natural tension, removing any excess as necessary.
Using this technique, Dr. Sobel is able to achieve a longer-lasting facelift without over-tightening the skin, providing a very natural result.
Recovery time after male facelift surgery
You will be able to go home shortly after your facelift to recover. Pain is typically mild to moderate, and easily managed through pain medication and by keeping the head elevated. Bruising and swelling are normal and typically peak about a week after surgery, after which they begin to subside rapidly with proper aftercare.
Most male facelift patients are ready to resume light activities within 1 week and feel comfortable going out in public within 10 to 14 days. Final results gradually come into place over the course of several months, although you will look great within a few weeks of your procedure.
With good skin care habits, facelift results can last up to a decade. Although the natural aging process continues, you’ll now be starting with the clock turned back about 10 years. Plus, touch-ups can often be made easily with non-surgical treatments, such as BOTOX and filler injections.
