Can Men Get Facelifts?
We live in a culture that prizes youth and beauty. That not only influences women, but also men so we have the perfect gift idea for Father’s Day. Statistics show that today men are taking their appearances far more seriously. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), between 1997 and 2012 the number of cosmetic procedures for men increased more than 106 percent. While nose reshaping topped the list for procedures for men, facelifts made the top five.
According to the 2013 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, there were 133,320 facelift procedures performed in the US that year. Of those procedures 10 percent, or 12,699, were performed on men. This is a 7 percent increase from the previous year. While plastic surgery procedures have typically been performed for women, there is a rising number of men who undergo the same procedures. Aging affects everyone, including men. As a man ages, there may be aspects of his face or body that he wants to change or improve. A facelift is a great option as it can significantly improve the visible signs of aging in an individual’s face, resulting in a far more youthful appearance.
What Does a Facelift Do?
A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a special surgical procedure that improves the look of the face and neck by reducing the appearance of:
  • •Sagging in the face
  • •Deep creases along the nose that extend to the corners of the mouth
  • •Deep creases below the eyes
  • •Loose skin under the chin and jaw that can give the appearance of a double chin
  • •Loss of skin tone
  • •Jowling
As you age, the youthful contours of your face will fade. Factors like stress, smoking, family history, gravity and environmental conditions can influence the aging process. If you are a man who is unhappy with the current look of your face and neck, consider the many benefits of a facelift.
