From youth to a mature age: aging in men

“Well, the last time I had a picture taken I could hardly see my eyes because of the weight of heavy eyelid. Then I paid attention to how I was actually using my eyes and I really noticed when I was looking at anything especially the computer I was straining my forehead to see better. Since I have had it done I no longer have to lift the forehead and tilt my head to see. It is amazing! I love…”  D. Rock  63 Yrs Old with Fat Droopy Eyes – Salt Lake City, UT

AGING OF MEN RELATIVE TO WOMEN

What bothers ladies isn’t always what bothers gentlemen! Indeed, performing the same type of procedures on men may lead to an effeminized look. For example, ladies look more elegant when the brows are positioned with an arc and the tail higher than the head of the brow. Such a position would look distinctly effeminate in men. Similarly, the way upper blepharoplasties, lower blepharoplasties, facelifts, etc are performed, is very different in men. Because the skin is generally thicker, wrinkles and lines tend to be more pronounced in men. Similarly, as men don’t use makeup, any protective component of creams is lost, resulting in more pronounced solar elastosis. 

AGING OF MEN ANALYSIS & PLANNING

Sometimes, there is severe volume loss of the face with associated lack of support and collapse of the mid and lower face.

Invasive surgical procedures may not always be the best choice for male rejuvenation. A lot can be achieved by using fillers, toxins, lasers and the like, without leaving any tell-tale signs of procedures.

Everyone has heard the statement: “I don’t want to look like ……” where a male movie star or singer is pronounced as looking “weird”. To that end, a careful assessment and definitive

planning are vital. We take pride in leaving our patients looking better (more handsome!) without carrying the stigmata of surgery.

SURGICAL PLANNING AFTER ANALYSIS OF THE AGING SEEN IN MEN

We are often referred men and women with undesirable effects of cosmetic surgery for correction: these unacceptable changes then have to be reversed with care, to give a marked improvement. However, it is better to plan properly in the first place and avoid such problems.

Many changes in the male face can be managed using conservative, non-surgical techniques which may involve fillers, neuro-toxins, volume augmentation, lasers and skin-tightening. Sometimes, minimally invasive techniques like small-incision liposuction with fat grafts and small-incision facelifts can give very nice results with no surgical stigmata. Results can be seen under the various procedures below.

In men, correction of facial rhytids and improving the tired look of heavy upper eyelids and “baggy” lower eyelids makes a substantial improvement

With combination surgery to eyelids, cheeks, lower face and neck, together with fat grafts and lasers, dramatic but very natural-looking results may be obtained in men of all ages. As I always teach, in men as well as in women, the huge improvement is always seen once a more defined jawline is created and laxity of the neck is addressed. Also, just as in sublime music (where it is termed “phrasing”), subtlety is rewarded with a natural-looking face without any tell-tale signs. There are NO lasers or devices that can give you this type of result, irrespective of what the advertisements say!
