After consulting with several other plastic surgeons, this gentleman came to see Dr. Sadati. He felt that traveling outside the Riverside, California area was worthwhile because he wanted the best plastic surgeon possible. “I’ve been thinking about a facelift and neck lift” since I was in my 40s, and I’m tired of this double chin.” Dr. Sadati explained how he would remove excess fat and skin from the neck area and would then tighten the muscles underneath. The patient liked the approach and also asked that Dr. Sadati make his jawline more prominent if possible.
During his procedures, Dr. Sadati was able to eliminate the signs of a double chin, and the facelift even made the patient’s face look thinner and more youthful simultaneously. He also benefited from upper lid lift that made his eyes brighter without signs of surgery. The man returned home the same day after a three-hour procedure and returned to work in two weeks. He was fully healed at the four-week point. In his “after” pictures, the transformation shows a thinner neck and face, a more masculine jawline, and the double chin is long gone and the eyes are youthful. “I look great,” he said. “I wish I had done this years ago.”
Can men have successful facelifts? Are they different from the standard facelift that women get? And how do they hide scars since men usually have less, and sometimes no, hair?
Each year, the number of men who come to Dr. Sadati looking for facial rejuvenation grows. Just in the last year, 15% of his facelift patients were men. Reducing the visible signs of aging is as important to men as it is to women, and a highly qualified plastic surgeon is able to minimize the sagging jowls and neck skin while perfecting and sculpting the jawline. Dr. Sadati has performed over 3,500 face and neck lifts while using local anesthesia and twilight sedation. Tailoring a facelift for a man requires camouflaged incisions, retaining the natural hairline, and making the jaw look youthful while still masculine.
