Full Facelift / Rhytidectomy Surgeon in Vancouver

As we age men’s facial skin and soft tissues undergo numerous changes, including loss of elasticity, sagging skin, thinning, loss of volume, and sun damage. The changes seen are most commonly categorized with signs of aging such as a down-turned mouth, heavy cheek folds, cheek flattening, and descent, and can make the individual appear tired or older than they feel.

When Should I Consider Male Facelift Surgery?

Before considering cosmetic surgery, many male facelift patients have tried or have been using other procedures such as laser skin resurfacing or injections. However, nonsurgical procedures become less effective with aging, so male patients will need to consider something more radical like a facelift.

The Male Facelift Procedure

A facelift is a comprehensive surgical procedure designed to reverse significant signs of aging. While it doesn’t halt the aging process, it can ‘set the clock back’ by 10-20 years in many cases. Incision placement is carefully hidden between the hair and beard line. More often than not, it is performed alongside a neck-lift that aims to contour the neck and jawline simultaneously (see neck-lift section).

Male Facelift Results and Recovery

When performed correctly a facelift will not result in a ‘windswept’ or ‘operated-on’ appearance that is frequently seen in movie stars and celebrities after poorly executed surgeries– instead, men who have a facelift under the guidance of a reputable and experienced provider noticed a stubble but much more chiseled look.

Recovery involves initial swelling and bruising mostly within the first week. Full recovery varies, but most men can usually return to regular activities after 10 to 14 days. Some results may be immediately noticeable, but they will continue to improve as swelling subsides over several weeks.

Dr. Tregaskiss will spend time with you to help understand your goals, answer all your questions, and make recommendations.
