Male Facelift in Parker County

Aging is a natural process, but it does not have to mean loose, sagging skin or hollow areas on your face that make you look older and more tired than you feel. Facelift procedures are becoming more common for men to help restore a chiseled jawline and emphasize a strong chin while slimming and narrowing the lower face and tightening the neck.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew H. Steele has years of experience and education to address the unique needs of a male facelift in Parker County. Our procedures are performed at an accredited outpatient surgery center where you are cared for and monitored by our expert staff.

Male Facelifts Are Different

Men and women have significant facial differences. For example, men’s skin is typically thicker than women’s, which makes it more challenging to manipulate. Men’s skin has higher sebum production due to higher testosterone levels, and oilier skin can affect facelift procedures.

Testosterone also produces more facial hair, which impacts how and where the incisions are made. Higher levels of collagen impact how a man’s skin ages, and lower pH levels can affect the skin’s microbiome and susceptibility to certain skin conditions.

Finally, men’s facial muscles tend to be thicker than women’s, including in the face, which significantly impacts how a male facelift procedure in Parker County is performed.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Male Facelift?

Good candidates for a facelift meet several criteria. They typically experience signs of aging that cannot be fully addressed using non-surgical treatments. For example, they may have sagging skin, deep wrinkles, or a loss of muscle tone that contributes to sagging skin along the face, neck, and jowls, producing a tired or more aged appearance. The best results are often achieved on men who have skin with some flexibility and elasticity.

Optimal candidates are in good physical health without medical conditions that might slow healing or increase the risk of complications, including smoking. Men should stop smoking at least four weeks before and after surgery. This includes any tobacco product or nicotine delivery system, such as vaping, nicotine gum, and nicotine patches.

Men with realistic expectations and an understanding of the potential outcomes and limitations of facelift surgery in Parker County are typically happier with the results. After your facelift, you should maintain a stable weight and healthy lifestyle, which can help enhance the results and longevity of the surgical procedure.

What to Consider During Recovery

Dr. Steele performs male facelifts in an accredited outpatient surgery center. His approach to the facelift depends on changes to the skin and muscle as well as the surgical procedure and desired results.

Recovery varies between patients and depends on the type of procedures they had. However, recovery generally follows a predictable timeline. After surgery, you will be discharged with postoperative instructions that should be followed closely to reduce the risk of postoperative complications, including infection.

Some swelling and discomfort are normal and can be managed by keeping your head elevated while sleeping and using cold compresses to reduce the swelling.

Within the first week, Dr. Steele will remove any stitches or drains placed during your surgery at your follow-up appointment. You will be advised to avoid strenuous activity, heavy lifting, and vigorous exercise until you are released, about six weeks after surgery. This will help prevent bleeding and wound separation.

During recovery, you must protect your skin from sun exposure. Depending on the nature of the job and the extent of the surgery, male patients are typically able to return to work within one to two weeks after a facelift in Parker County.

Most men also need time to adjust to the immediate changes in their appearance and the waiting time for the final results as swelling decreases. It is important to openly communicate with Dr. Steele, who can provide reassurance and support during your recovery.
