The aging process is much kinder to men than to women, yet society is placing increasing pressure on men to look revitalized and energetic. There are many social studies which demonstrate the benefits of not looking old. A man does not have to be a celebrity to consider appearance important. Facial and neck surgery are options to obtain a more youthful appearance.
Between the ages of 50 and 60, men often consider a facelift or neck lift. The best candidates for surgery are men who are self-motivated and have realistic expectations about the results and the effects of surgery on their lives.
Men often have specific concerns about their necks, with excess skin and sagging tissue being most concerning. A facelift restores the more youthful contours of the neck by redefining the jawline and correcting the loose skin. The goal of a facelift is to look good for their age, without an excessively dramatic change.
It is advised to have at least two consultations before surgery to review the demands of recovery time and the cost of surgery. The recovery period is usually one to two weeks. Men who maintain a healthy lifestyle before and after surgery usually have better outcomes.
Men are often impatient and prefer quick results with minimal recovery time. For those men who are unable to take the time off from work or activities, non-invasive treatments such as Botox and fillers and laser treatments are more appropriate.
If you are bothered by what you see in the mirror, it may be time to consider rejuvenation options. Call 717-732-9000 to schedule a consultation at Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center in Mechanicsburg, PA.
