While cosmetic procedures have traditionally been more popular with women, more men than ever realize how much these treatments can help them age with style. At his Baltimore-area practice, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald Schuster frequently uses techniques designed to enhance a masculine aesthetic. If you want to maintain the strong contours of your face and take years off your appearance, a facelift (rhytidectomy) could be the solution.
Should Men Get Facelifts?
Men experience the same signs of aging as women, including fine lines and volume loss. In addition, skin laxity can also be more noticeable in men since they tend to have more angular faces. Facelifts reverse these signs of aging by lifting the underlying tissue, smoothing out wrinkles, and defining the jawline.
Many men seeking out facelifts at our practice express a mismatch between the way they look and how they feel. Cosmetic signs of aging happen to all of us– even if you feel just as strong, energetic, and healthy as you did twenty years ago.
Getting a facelift is ultimately a personal decision. If you want to combat more advanced signs of aging to match your youthful energy, this procedure is comprehensive and effective.
What Percentage of Men Get Facelifts?
Some men also hesitate to get facelifts because they think other men aren’t doing it. In reality, this procedure is steadily gaining male popularity. The most recent American Society of Plastic Surgeons report found 8% of people who underwent facelifts in 2020 were men. Male facelift patients have also increased by 19% since 2000.
What Age Should a Man Get a Facelift?
Genetics and lifestyle factors influence your individual aging process, so the right age for your facelift procedure is unique to you. However, the majority of facelift patients are in their 50s and 60s. This range is when most people experience more advanced signs of aging.
If you have earlier signs like lines and wrinkles or mild facial volume loss, minimally invasive treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers could help you achieve the look you want with less downtime.
