Facial Rejuvenation for Men: It Requires Attention to Detail
- Posted on: Jul 30 2019
Over the past several years, more men are speaking up about their desire to maintain a youthful appearance. More than talking about their concerns, men are stepping up to the plate, seeking the cosmetic treatments that have historically been “reserved” for women. All cosmetic treatments require that the surgeon be attuned to the individual aspects of the face or part of the body being addressed. For men to obtain the results they expect from cosmetic treatment, it is necessary that their unique anatomical structure is understood.
The same surgical lifts that have been refreshing women’s faces for years are also advantageous for men. The face and neck lift, in particular, is a popular treatment among men wanting to correct a slack, saggy jawline and double-chin or turkey neck. This technique may also be combined with surgical eyelid rejuvenation or nonsurgical wrinkle-reducing treatment to achieve more widespread facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Flaharty’s extensive experience in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery gives him a unique perspective. From this, he has developed a comprehensive methodology for correcting the signs of facial aging. We call this method Harmonious Facial Rejuvenation because the ultimate objective in developing treatment is to restore harmony between all features, from the forehead to the chin and neck. A critical aspect of achieving the best results is to honor the nuances of the male face.
Men have thicker skin. This is more than a proverbial adage; it is literal anatomy. Additionally, men’s hair pattern and bony structure, muscle tone, and fatty tissue are all different than that of a woman. For example, a woman’s face tends to be softer and rounder overall than a man’s. The male face is typically more angular and rectangular. The jawline and brow bone of the male face is generally more prominent. Understanding these characteristics, Dr. Flaherty is able to perform cosmetic surgery on men in a way that honors the masculine form rather than change it.
Facial rejuvenation is a common motivation among men and women today. With slight tweaks, a skilled surgeon can achieve outstanding results for both genders.
