Facial rejuvenation is becoming increasingly popular for men. Scars in the male face are more difficult to conceal in men due to hair patterns. Masculine facial features also need to be preserved. It’s important to select a surgeon such as Dr. Ching that understands these factors so that you can achieve natural results.
What types of Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures are Performed by Dr. Ching?
Browlifts are commmonly done in conjunction with eyelid lifts to give a younger appearance to the upper face. In these procedures, the eyebrows are elevated to a higher position consistent with their appearance prior to aging. Excess skin and fat of the eyelids is removed and repositioned to reverse the effects of aging in these areas.
Facelifts combined with necklifts are needed to rejuvenate the lower face. Male facelifts require a special understanding of the proportions and facial features of the male face. In these procedures, excess skin and fat is removed from the face using incisions around the ear. The deeper layer of the face, known as the SMAS, is also tightened with special suturing. SMAS repositioning is considered the hallmark of modern facelift surgery. The recovery from facial surgery ranges between 1 to 2 weeks.
