Are Men Candidates For A Facelift In Toronto?

April 5th, 2022 Share

Facelift procedures are an incredible option for not only women but also men who are looking for a total rejuvenation. Men like to seem well-groomed, but many are reluctant to acknowledge it. As a result, male cosmetic surgery tends to be more on the discreet side, maybe even more so than with female patients.

That being said, our facelift procedures have provided women and men in the Toronto area with flawless and natural-looking results. If you’re a man interested in this type of procedure we highly suggest reading this guide that will help you determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment in Toronto. Let’s get into it…

So, What Exactly Is A Male Facelift Capable Of?

Women have been reaping the advantages of turning back the hands of time with a surgical facelift, which is considered the gold standard in facial rejuvenation, for many years now. Finally, men are beginning to embrace the significant increase in self-confidence and overall quality of life that comes with aesthetic regeneration as well.

Important Factors To Consider For Men

Men are more concerned with natural-looking outcomes than women are. Downtime is also an essential factor to take into account. It is important for plastic surgeons not to overdo it with male patients when conducting facelift, browlift, or eyelid surgery, since this may result in feminization of the male face or an overdone appearance.

When it comes to men’s plastic surgery treatments, little is more.

Men, like women, may need adjustment of drooping soft tissues and neck muscular bands to restore their natural posture. Men may also benefit from fat grafting, albeit the cheeks should not be overfilled. Facelift and necklift procedures are excellent possibilities for men to have a chin augmentation done at the same time, assisting them in restoring a young neck angle and strengthening their lower face, their profile, and their alpha personality while undergoing these procedures.

There are several differences in surgical technique.

Having said that, many procedural approaches vary between men and women in a variety of ways.

When males get eyelid surgery, the gap between the eyelashes and the incision is less than when women have the procedure performed. The plastic surgeon will also make an effort to keep the scar inside the bony orbit, since it is more difficult for males to mask early scars using makeup.

When doing facelift surgery on my male patients in Toronto, we have to be very attentive to the shifting of soft tissue, the sideburns, and the hair. Keep in mind that pulling the patient’s hair farther up and to the back will make him or her seem older. If hair is required to grow over the ear area as a result of the shifting of the sideburns, the majority of the hair follicles can be removed during the facelift procedure by scraping them out from the under-surface of the skin flaps; hair that continues to grow post-op can be treated with a laser. If hair is required to grow over the ear area as a result of the shifting of the sideburns, the majority of the hair follicles can be removed while men’s sideburns should be kept as long as possible.

The same principles apply to the brow lift surgery as they do to any other cosmetic operation. It would be incorrect to enhance the height of a man’s forehead since it would make him seem older. An incision along the hairline is employed as a result. Furthermore, the surgeon is able to push the scalp forward, decreasing the overall height of the forehead while also renewing the forehead at the same time.

How Can A Facelift Help?

A facelift in Toronto is a surgical service that is used to realign drooping tissues, smooth wrinkles, define a jawline or neck that has been obscured by sagging jowls, and sagging neck skin. It is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon such as our very own Dr. Marc DuPéré. Nothing seems to have been pulled, tightened, or operated after the treatment is completed either. Rather, you seem to be a younger, more rejuvenated version of yourself.

A facelift surgery is carried out under sedation or general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort. Dr. DuPéré will employ precise incision placement throughout the treatment, which will be concealed by the hairline or the natural shape of the face during the surgery. In a typical facelift, Dr. DuPéré gently lifts the skin and muscles of the face, allowing the underlying tissues to be tightened in order to improve the overall manly appearance. Dr. DuPéré may also remove some fat and extra skin during the procedure. Afterwards, the skin is redistributed across the face, giving the illusion of a smooth, regenerated complexion.

How To Keep A Masculine Appearance

When raising the eyebrows, it is important not to overdo it in order to avoid feminizing the man’s face. The expression of astonishment is not an acceptable outcome. When performing a facelift on males, a “peninsular temporal” flap is often used to take advantage of the typically abundant temporal hair that exists at the hairline, linking the facelift incision to the forehead incision at this location. During a forehead lift, it may be necessary to soften prominent frontal bossing to achieve a more pleasing appearance. With the use of suitable imaging and planning, the frontal bone may be shaved and polished down to a smooth surface.

When taking care not to push the hairline higher into an older-looking position, the incisions on males may become obvious as a result of the precautions used. As a result, tremendous care must be used in order to provide the finest scars possible. Plastic surgeons should be able to create the most natural-looking scars. Incisions should be made in such a manner that the amount of hair that grows through the scar is maximized. Stitching should be very fine in order to minimize harm to the hair follicles throughout the process as well.

These are all little but very significant things that Dr. DuPéré considers when he is performing a facelift on a man. Following these simple steps allows him to perform natural-looking procedures that the patient’s family and friends won’t even be able to notice following the surgery.

What Are Some Of The Perks Of Getting A Facelift For Men?

  • Having greater self-confidence in one’s physical appearance as well as having a more youthful look.
  • Wrinkles, fine lines, creases, and folds are reduced in appearance.
  • Excess fatty face tissue is being eliminated.
  • Skin that is sagging and drooping is reduced.
  • More definition in the jawline.
  • Results that endure a long time.
  • A natural result that mixes in easily with the existing elements and face shape.

Who Is A Good Candidate?

Men who are experiencing indications of age, such as drooping skin around the face and neck, as well as a loss of facial feature definition, are good candidates for a facelift. A facelift is a surgical operation, therefore applicants must be in excellent general health and advise Dr. DuPéré of any medical concerns they may be suffering from prior to the surgery. When it comes to facelifts, like with other cosmetic treatments, it is more likely that you will be pleased with the results if you have clear, realistic expectations about what the surgery may accomplish and if you discuss these expectations with Dr. DuPéré at our Toronto clinic.

Recovery Process For A Facelift Procedure

The amount of time it takes to recover following a facelift is dependent on the amount of drooping that was addressed. Your surgeon will give you precise post-operative instructions, which should be read and followed to the letter in order to guarantee a successful outcome.

Your face will be wrapped immediately after your facelift treatment in order to reduce swelling, and little tubes will be implanted in order to drain any extra fluid. During the first few days after surgery, you should anticipate to have some edema, discomfort, tightness, and stiffness, which will subside over the following several weeks as the healing process continues. Most patients are healthy enough to return to work and to go out in public after two or three weeks of recuperation.
