With increasing pressure on men to look young, fresh and excited — no matter how old they are — it’s not surprising that many men have been turning to cosmetic surgery to feel better about themselves and go further in their career. In Laguna Beach, many men are finding that the male facelift is the perfect procedure to meet their goals and allow them to look the age that they feel on the inside.
This procedure is not a complex surgery, but men considering it should still recognize how the procedure is performed. Dr. Kevin Sadati uses a variety of different surgical techniques that work better on a male face, and typically this surgery takes anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. In preparation for the surgery, the surgeon and his team will draw lines on the patient’s face in order to outline where the incisions will be located.
Typically, the procedure is done with either local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference and the complexity of the procedure itself.
The ideal candidate for this procedure is man who is beginning to show signs of aging in his face but is also in overall good health. Patients who suffer from diabetes and heart disease should recognize that it may be difficult for them to withstand not only the procedure but also the recovery period.
Another benefit of this procedure is the fact that other cosmetic procedures can easily be performed at the same time, if necessary. For instance, a patient could also have a brow lift done or a blepharoplasty. If you want to know if you are an ideal candidate, set up a consultation with the surgeon today. There you can discuss your goals as well as decide what the next step should be.
