Home » Male Plastic Surgery » Male Facelift

It’s okay to want to look as young as you feel, and a facelift for men, also known as male rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can help you achieve just that. During a rhytidectomy, excess tissue is removed or repositioned to give you a fuller, more vivacious appearance. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers male facelifts to men who live in North Florida.

What is a Male Facelift?

Male facelifts remove sagging skin, restore facial volume and give you an overall energetic appearance.  Because many different facelift techniques are available, procedures are highly customized based on each patient’s face structure and goals.

Benefits of Male Facelift

Facelifts can give your confidence a boost. Facelifts provide the following benefits:

  • Improve visible signs of aging
  • Maintain your basic facial structure so you still look like you
  • Give immediate results
  • Last 10 to 15 years or longer

How is a Facelift Performed on a Man?

Like all plastic surgery, facelifts are not one-size-fits-all. Many different types exist, and surgical procedures vary based on the type of facelift and your specific requirements. Although you will need to shave your facial hair prior to the surgery, most men are pleased to discover that no hair on your head will be shaved before or during the procedure. You do not need to worry about scarring either. Incisions are meticulously hidden and can only be seen by trained professionals.

Recovery from Male Facelift Surgery

Many men are surprised and pleased to find that they do not have much pain or discomfort after their facelift surgery. You may, however, experience a tightening sensation for the first couple of days.  Depending upon the type of facelift, typically you can resume regular activities within two to four weeks of the surgery.

What Makes a Facelift Different for a Man Than for a Woman?

There are many differences between a male facelift and a facelift for a woman. Since the techniques involved in male facelift surgery are extremely challenging, the patient must completely understand the surgical goals and nuances of the procedure.

In general, the techniques used for a female facelift should not be performed on a male patient. A good surgeon has the necessary skills, artistic talent, anatomical knowledge and manual dexterity to customize the facelift surgery to each patient. Since artistic talent is usually a born gift, surgeons are unlikely to learn this important skill during their training. One of the fears of many surgeons is accidentally creating a feminine appearance on a male face. This mistake is often devastating and extremely difficult to reverse. Dr. Garcia understands the importance of these skills and, as a result, he is able to successfully construct a desirable masculine face.

One of the most noted differences between men and women facelifts are the incisions that are created during surgery. Most men often have a hard time hiding these incisions because of their short hair. As a result, Dr. Garcia tries to create these incisions as inconspicuously as possible. The most common places for these incisions include the natural fold of the earlobe, the lower scalp and along the crease between the ear and the cheek. Because most women have longer hair than men, many females can easily hide these small incisions.

How Much Does Male Facelift Surgery Cost in Jacksonville?

There is a wide range of costs for a male facelift due to the large discrepancy in types of surgery and techniques used. After your consultation, Dr. Phillip Garcia’s staff will review all costs in detail based on the recommendations made specifically for you. Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery accepts cash, major credit cards, and personal checks, as well as financing via CareCredit®.

Health insurance does not typically cover the cost of facelifts.  Be sure to check with your insurance company about your benefits so you will know what to expect.

Is Male Facelift Surgery Right for Me?

If you are a man who thinks you look older than your actual age, and you’re ready for a lasting change, then it might be the right time to consider a facelift.
