MALE FACELIFT PROCEDURE DETAILS
Facelift surgery focuses on facial areas such as the cheeks, jowls, jawline, midface and forehead. To restore youth contour, the deeper facial tissues will be tightened or repositioned. There might also be removal or addition of fat to achieve the desired look.
Today, there are a variety of techniques that can be used to deliver consistent, safe and lasting results. Incisions will be made on the targeted areas and there will be some ‘undermining’ of the skin for re-positioning.
Dr. Brown will then lift and reposition the underlying tissue/muscle using sutures in order to reshape the face. If there is a need to increase face volume fat can be used as a natural filler. At the end, skin is reshaped and sutured closed to reveal your new canvas. If needed, drainage tubes may be inserted, with a padded, supportive dressing usually applied.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE?
Recovery time will vary depending on the operation’s level of sophistication. Immediately after the procedure is finished, you will be placed into a compression garment. The dressing will be removed the next day during your visit with Dr. Brown. Oral medications will be prescribed to help with any discomfort and pain. Swelling and bruising will manifest and last for about 2-3 weeks. You will be advised to sit and sleep in a slightly inclined position instead of lying down to reduce swelling during the first week. Avoid using anti-inflammatory medication or aspirin unless Dr. Brown has instructed you otherwise.
