Facelift (SMAS Facelift) Surgery for Men
The Igorgeous has seen a significant rise in men seeking to rejuvenate their look. Face lifts are one of the most popular ways to do this, with longer lasting results. Your face is your most personal, unique feature. It’s the first thing someone notices about you, and it’s what makes you… you. So what do you do when the face you present to the world no longer represents the youthful, self-confident person you feel on the inside?
While ageing is a fact of life, there are many ways we can help you achieve a refreshed, more youthful look: by removing lines, excess fat and facial sagging.
We offer facial rejuvenation procedures including Facelift Surgery.
A Face Lift is a comprehensive way to treat sagging cheeks and jowls, loose skin and deep creases around your eyes and mouth, and can reduce the age of your appearance by between 5 to 10 years.
A Face Lift involves an incision along your hairline, and around the ear, which allows your underlying facial muscle tissue to be tightened, and any excess skin and fat can then be removed. There are many ways of performing a Face Lift. In fact, there are about four types of Face Lifting techniques. In the first, the skin is elevated and tightened. In the second, the SMAS layer (sub-muscular aponeurotic layer – a fibromuscular layer with extensive attachments) is tightened and any excess skin is then simply removed. The third technique is a Composite Face Lift where the plane of the lift is both in front of and below the muscle and the skin component is excised under no tension. The fourth technique is a Deep Plane Lift just above the bone, called a subperiosteal elevation, and the skin treated as above.
Each of these techniques has advantages and disadvantages. Each technique may be indicated for a specific reason by us during your pre-op consultation.
Various incisions can be made to achieve each of these techniques of Face Lifting. A short scar or mini-Face Lift incision makes a small scar and allows the operator to carry out a method of lifting only the skin, or performing a SMAS lift. The shorter the scar the less the exposure and the more difficult it is for a more extensive Face Lift. Hence, a short scar or mini-Face Lift would be indicated only for patients seeking a less extensive lift or for younger patients.
Some surgeons offer Face Lift surgery targeting the skin only. Our preference is to use the SMAS Face Lift because this technique targets all the layers, and not just the skin, which will not retain its refreshed look for long without the underlying support. This means we do not offer a ‘lunch-time Face Lift’ and that you do need to stay in hospital overnight. We uses techniques that will ensure the structure is adequately supported so your Face Lift is able to give you long lasting results.
We will work with you to design a treatment plan that is realistic and addresses your specific needs. Your consultation with us will give you time to explore and discuss all your options with him. You can rest assured that your procedure is in the very capable hands of a highly qualified and experienced Plastic Surgeon with over 10 years’ experience.
No two Face Lifts are the same, as this is not ‘off the shelf’ surgery. Realising that you are an individual, Dr Edinburg tailors your surgery according to what you specifically require to address your unique concerns.
We has the skill and expertise to devise, alter, modify and adapt surgical techniques to best suit you. For example, if you are seeking greater facial symmetry you may benefit from Nose Job Surgery as part of your facelift.
