Male Facelift Surgery

Male Facelift SurgeryA facelift (rhytidectomy) can help improve the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, as well as rejuvenating the skin of the face and neck.  Men seeking to look younger and regain their confidence may consider a facelift surgery.  Male Facelift Surgery requires customized facial rejuvenation procedures to correct visible signs of aging, but also to maintain the ideal masculine appearance.  Dr. Calloway has extensive experience with multiple types of Male Facelifting procedures, and has been in the forefront of these Male Specific Procedures for many years.  One of Dr. Calloway’s first Television interviews over 20 years ago while a Plastic Surgeon at Mayo Clinic, was discussing the increased demand and challenges of Male Plastic Surgery Procedures.

Male faces deemed anatomically attractive tend to be square-shaped with more intricate hairlines and slightly square jawlines whereas women tend to have heart shaped faces, with rounded corners from the hairline that extend down toward the chin area.  Males also tend to have longer faces at the bottom to accommodate a longer upper lip and lengthy chin. Men tend to have hollower cheeks because they tend to have less fat. Men have wider jawbones than women do; this is because the muscles attached to the corners of the jawbone have a tendency to be more robust. Female jawlines form a soft curve that extends from the earlobe to the chin. Male jawlines are straighter from the ear downward and then more angular toward the chin.

Facelifts for men are most effective for patients who want to correct:

  • Midface sagging
  • Deep creases under the eyes
  • Deep creases between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Jowls due to loss of muscle tone
  • Sagging areas of fat
  • Loose skin and fat under the chin and jaw

Men also seeking to treat signs of aging in the forehead, eyelids, and mid face areas can combine their facelift surgery with a brow lift and/or eyelid surgery.  Additionally, facial implants and fillers, injectables, non invasive treatments and laser skin resurfacing can work together to enhance the results of a facelift procedure.   Dr. Calloway offers all of his male patients a comprehensive Plastic Surgery consultation in order to offer the best options suited for their desired results. 

The cost of the surgery will vary depending on the procedures utilized.  The surgery is performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation or under general anesthesia in our Accredited Outpatient Surgical Facility.  The usual recovery is approximately one week before the microscopic sutures are removed.  Exercise regimens are usually resumed in 2-3 weeks.  Also included as part of the procedure, Dr. Calloway performs non invasive laser treatments on the limited incisions on the face after surgery to help the incisions fade more rapidly.  Thorough individualized instructions are reviewed with the patient and caregiver prior to surgery, and frequent postoperative visits with Dr. Calloway and his staff ensure a smooth and straightforward recovery.*
