Facial Rejuvenation for Men procedures at Restore SD Plastic Surgery
Although women have long embraced the many ways to ward off or reverse facial aging, men are now appreciating the value of looking younger.
If you are considering a means to refresh your look, appear younger for a job interview or to continue a successful career track, there are many surgical and non surgical options.
Non surgical techniques such as fillers and neuromodulators (including BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®) are seeing a surge in use by men. According to the most recent survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men had over 450,000 neuromodulator treatments in 2016 – a 72% increase over the last 5 years. The signs of aging are associated with volume loss, skin laxity and wrinkles. Although BOTOX® Cosmetic will temporarily smooth lines in your face, fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® can restore volume, especially around the jawline or temples. Skin treatments to include micro needling and laser rejuvenation can improve skin texture and reduce sun damage.
Surgical procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), brow lift, and facelift can dramatically improve the signs of facial aging. Removing excess eyelid skin, raising a heavy brow to its normal level at the brow ridge and reducing laxity and extra skin in the neck and face are effective means to address the signs of an aging face.
The Best Candidates
- Have excess skin in the neck and jowls
- Have a loss of volume in the temples or jaw line
- Wish to reflect an inner confident and younger self
- Are healthy and not taking blood thinning medications
- Have a heavy brow that makes you appear angry or sad
- Have a permanent scowl or prominent creases in their forehead or around the eyes
On the day of your consultation, your Restore SD Plastic surgeon will review your facial anatomy, your concerns and goals for treatment to create a tailored approach to your facial rejuvenation plan. For non-invasive procedures, we can treat that day in the office. Once we have determined the areas to be treated and the amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic or filler to use, we will apply a gentle cleanser and an antiseptic to the areas of injection. Ice packs can be applied before and after treatment to make the process as comfortable as possible. Your provider will then inject the neuromodulator or filler with a very small needle. Shortly after, you can go about your day. It typically takes 3 -10 days before effects are seen of neuromodulators, while fillers offer an instant result.
Surgical procedures, with the occasional exception of blepharoplasty, are performed under general anesthesia in an accredited ambulatory surgery center or hospital setting. Each procedure addresses a different anatomic area of the face and will be reviewed in detail, as well as expected recovery and return to activity, at your initial consultation.
