About Facial Surgery for Men
Cosmetic procedures, such as facial surgery, eyelid surgery, nose surgery, and facial-implant surgery are performed essentially the same way for men and women. However, it’s important to let your surgeon know if you are seeking a more masculine look to your facial features — a chin with better projection, more prominent cheekbones, or a stronger nose.
If you are considering facial surgery or neck surgery, Jacksonville board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Obi will evaluate your entire head-face-neck region. Is the hairline receding? How full are the sideburns? Does the beard-growing skin extend up the cheeks or down the neck? Are there facial scars? Is the skin sun-damaged? Is the neck skin loose or drooping? All these factors influence which procedures would be most beneficial and how best to perform them.
Male Facial Surgery vs. Female Facial Surgery
In general, male facial skin has a richer blood supply than female facial skin. After surgery, male faces tend to ooze more during surgery and are at greater risk for forming a temporary collection of blood under the skin, called a hematoma. Any scarring that may result from surgery may be more difficult for men to hide since they don’t wear make-up or style their hair toward their faces, as many women do. Hair growth and beard growth may play a major role in the outcome of a facelift.
If you are balding or have thinning hair, surgical artistry may be required to hide the facelift incision, especially in the temple area. If the hair-bearing skin of your upper neck is pulled behind your ears during surgery, you may find that you must shave behind your ears or the back of your neck. However, sometimes electrolysis can correct this problem. Be sure to discuss these possibilities with board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Obi.
A fatty or “jowly” area beneath the chin is also a concern for many men. In younger patients, liposuction alone may be sufficient to correct the problem. Older patients may require a full facelift and necklift, which may include the removal of excess skin and the tightening of the platysma muscles, which run down each side of the neck.
