They may be less likely to admit it, but many men find that as their age begins to show on their face their self confidence begins to dwindle. They might feel like they are still in their 30s and 40s, but their face is telling everyone else another story.
For men who might be feeling this way, don’t think that cosmetic surgery is a woman’s thing. In Irvine, many men are finding that a male facelift is an easy procedure that allows them to look the age that they feel on the inside and feel self confidence once again.
While there are not too many differences between a male face and a female face, Dr. Kevin Sadati notes that male patients need some special considerations.
For starters, men have thicker skin on their face than women do, and are more likely to develop hematoma. He is careful to keep this in mind as he decides the places to make incisions and tucks. He also knows that facial scarring is less likely to be covered up by makeup, so he tries to make the scars on men as discrete as possible. Also, men most likely have facial hair lines that need to be considered when deciding on a facelift procedure.
Men should have realistic expectations of any cosmetic procedure, especially a facelift. Note that the only thing this surgery can do is change the look of your face, it can’t change your entire life. For more information, set up a consultation with Dr. Sadati today. There you can talk about your goals as well as your concerns, as well as see if any other cosmetic procedures, such as a brow lift, should be performed at the same time. From there you can decide what the next best step is for you.
