Face Lift for Men New Jersey – Procedure and Recovery
During the normal process of aging, the soft tissues of your cheeks and neck descend due to gravity and the skin’s loss of elasticity. This causes wrinkles to form around the eyes, forehead and jowls. Thankfully, there are cosmetic options like facelifts available to enhance your appearance and keep you looking years younger.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, facelift (rhytidectomy) 11,398 facelifts were performed on men across the country in 2012, making it the sixth most popular cosmetic surgery procedure among men.
No “Right” Time for a Facelift
Since everyone goes through the facial aging process at different times there is no “right time” to start thinking about a facelift. Both men and women who are concerned about improving the signs of facial aging are ideal candidates for the procedure. If you want to look and feel better, there’s no better time than now.
At the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery, we focus on natural lifting techniques that do not change the appearance of our patients’ facial features. You don’t need to worry that you won’t look like yourself after the procedure. You will look like a younger, more vibrant you, and the results will last for years.
A facelift works by surgically re-positioning fallen fat in the jowls back up to the mid-face, and removing excess skin using limited incisions. We also redefine the jaw line and re-contour the neck.
- The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes roughly 3½ hours
- You stay overnight in our surgical facility and are monitored by one of our highly trained registered nurses
- After surgery, there is very little pain and some patients do not even request medication
- Stitches are removed within one week
- Swelling and discoloration subside within 10 to 14 days, allowing you to resume normal activities and exercise within three weeks.
Rapid Recovery perioperative program
The Parker Center has also developed a unique Rapid Recovery perioperative program for its patients. It includes a combination of:
- Special skin stimulating creams
- Oral herbal medications
- Intraoperative use of tissue glue
- Intravenous medications
- Postoperative manual lymphatic drainages massage
This program allows our patients to enjoy a shorter recovery time with minimal swelling and bruising, while treating themselves to the pampering they deserve.
Brow Lift and Eyelift
Face lift procedures are often combined with a brow lift, eyelift, rhinoplasty, or chin augmentation. When these procedures are done together, they can restore you to a youthful, rested appearance, while achieving the most aesthetically pleasing result.
When you come in for your initial consultation, Dr. Parker will discuss of your options with you in detail.
