Facelift and Eyelid Surgery For Men

Facelift and eyelid surgery, either together or separate, ease signs of facial aging

Eyelid surgery removes excess skin and treats the fat pads, or bags. Facelifts address the mid-face jaw line with minimal impact to the neck. Dr. Vanek’s technique involves removing the excess skin, tightening the underlying muscle and repositioning the facial soft tissues. While facial plastic surgery for men is essentially the same as the procedure for a woman’s facial rejuvenation, Dr. Vanek varies his methods specifically for his male patients. “We are always very careful and precise with scar placement, regardless of the sex of the patient. In men, we take care not to disturb facial hair-growth patterns. We do not want to disturb their hairline. When we re-drape the facial skin in front of the ear, we remove hair follicles and perform laser hair removal to maintain a natural-looking hairline,” says Dr. Vanek. “Men tend to wear their hair short, and most never wear concealer or cosmetics, so it’s something we keep in mind.”

Dr. Vanek will consider your desire for a certain outcome and downtime required as he discusses your goals during your consultation. Then he will tailor a treatment pathway that will best serve your needs, goals and budget. “Every patient should be given individual attention, their needs and anatomy carefully examined,” says Dr. Vanek. “There are some patients who come in thinking they need a facelift, but I am able to give them the results they want and love by performing facial VASER Liposelection. I have the judgement and experience to be able to achieve the best outcome possible as defined by your unique circumstances.” If you choose to have a facial rejuvenation procedure, your post-operative care is part of your treatment package. “Most men are not as careful about their own follow-up in my opinion,” says Dr. Vanek. “All of your follow-ups are included, as they are for all my patients, and I want to see you at specific intervals to assure you that your recovery is on track. I do this so we can optimize your scars, or see if you need additional intervention because your individual healing process.”
