Restore the Appearance of Youth and Vitality

The saying goes that men only look better with age. While that is mostly true, there are some negative effects of aging – namely excess and sagging skin around the face. A male facelift is designed to restore the masculine contour and appearance of youth in the mid-face, jowls and neck.

Often men find themselves looking tired when they are not, or older than they are. We want you to look the way you feel. If you feel energetic and young at heart, we believe your face should too. Contact our office in Wesley Chapel to find out more and book an appointment.

What Is a Male Facelift?

A male facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to help men achieve a more youthful-looking appearance, mirroring the vibrance they feel inside. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the face and neck area in order to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. Additionally, it can be used to contour the jawline and neck for a more masculine look. It’s important to note that this type of procedure is not intended to dramatically change one’s overall facial structure; rather, its goal is simply to define a masculine contour, restore lost volume and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Male facelifts can often be combined with other treatments such as brow lifts, eyelid surgery and facial implants for even better results when needed.

Benefits of a Facelift

By choosing a specialist, such as triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Raj Ambay, you can be assured of all the benefits of a facelift, along with the natural, aesthetically pleasing results. He’s honed his skills throughout his decades of experience in the Wesley Chapel, Tampa area and beyond. Some of these expected benefits include:

  • Eliminate worn out, deflated and sagging skin in the midface
  • Create a refreshed look that beams with vitality and youth
  • Reduce deep creases and the look of sadness by elevating the corners of the mouth
  • Rejuvenate youthful volume in the face
  • Chisel the jaws and chin
  • Say goodbye to the turkey neck

About the Male Facelift Procedure

The facelift is performed with carefully placed incisions. These are made at the hairline, extending just inside the crease at the front of the ear, back behind the ear and then horizontally into the hairline. The incisions are carefully hidden in your hairline to eliminate the tell-tale signs of a facelift. Some excess skin may be removed, and the rest is redraped naturally without pulling to produce a natural, youthful appearance.

With Dr. Ambay’s surgical expertise, you can rest assured you won’t leave surgery with the unnaturally ‘pulled’ look, wide mouth or other oddities often associated with less experienced facelift surgeons. The recovery process is short, pain is minimal and can take place in the comfort of your own home.

Post Procedure and Recovery

A male facelift can help you look younger and more refreshed, but it’s important to remember that the procedure comes with risks. Facelift surgery recovery can take 1-2 weeks. It’s important to follow Dr. Ambay’s recovery instructions during this time to ensure the best possible outcome.

Immediately following the procedure, you may experience swelling, bruising and some discomfort that can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications, or medications prescribed by Dr. Ambay just for you. You should also plan to avoid strenuous activity while healing takes place so you do not disrupt the results of the surgery, or lengthen the recovery process.

Additionally, make sure you attend all post-op appointments. Dr. Ambay can do post -op monitoring in-person, by video, email or telephone. We give you the choice to offer the greatest level of convenience. Many issues can be resolved by having access to Dr. Ambay, even if it is a simple question on a weekend or holiday. With proper care and attention throughout the process, you can enjoy lasting results from your facelift for many years to come.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Male Facelift?

A facelift may be the ideal procedure for you if you’re concerned about aging facial features, or you simply don’t look as youthful on the outside as you feel on the inside. You should also be in good general health and have realistic expectations. Contact us today to schedule your complimentary consultation.
