Facelift surgery (rhytidectomy) and non-invasive techniques are not just for women. In this day and age, men are also getting a facelift done to look youthful and fit. It has indeed become a new trend among men in 40s and older. Although the technique is all same, guys who get surgery do face a few social challenges unlike women. A number of popular Hollywood actors now have publicly claimed that they have got their face done. Keeping reading about the growing trend of facelift surgery for men:
What do studies say?
According to studies and surveys on the procedures done at some top plastic surgeons’ clinics in our country, there is a 40 percent increase in facelift procedures for men in the past few years. As per the data collected after 1997, it seems the trend of getting a facelift has become more popular with a 273 percent increase in the total number of cases. All these are the numbers of procedures particularly done on men. Most often men opt for facelift to get rid of the crow’s feet, saggy chin and forehead. Although the procedure is the same, the target area is different for men and women.
Reports released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons also support this fact that there is a rapid rise in the cosmetic procedures among men. Men, unlike women, particularly look for a facelift to get only a few parts of their face fixed. Most of the time, a male facelift consists of changes in the appearance of the eyelids and forehead. In contrast, women often go for a tight cheek, smooth chin, contoured eyelids and a sharp jaw line.
What the new facelift is like?
Although the old-time facelift included a lot of invasive surgical methods, the modern day facelift is performed using cutting of technology. Instead of using tools like scalpel and knives, surgeons use laser technology and other top-notch surgical devices to perform the nearly non-invasive facelift procedures. It is true that the demand of facelift is increasing after the introduction of modern day facelift procedures. For those looking for a youthful yet non-invasive upgrade should check out facelift injections, fillers and treatments.
Popular cosmetic surgery clinics also have newest technologies in place to tighten skin through laser heat. Non-Botox facelift also involves usage of Sculptra, Radiesse and Dysport. Such treatments not only help a person in finding smooth skin without any frown lines around the lips and eyes. When the traditional surgical facelift was replaced by minimally invasive procedure, the demand of facelift increased up by 56 percent from the year 2000. That’s when the demographic changes happened drastically. This was reported by a popular facelift clinic spokesperson.
New face sculpting procedure:

Because the fat dissipates, the treatment leaves the patient’s face looking youthful and smooth. This is a great choice to make a person’s look thin and sharp.
With the increasingly high demand of youthful appearance among men, liquid-facelift is also gaining popularity as well. This facelift procedure smoothes the skin around the jowls, in the temples and under the eyes without making it look dramatic. With filler injections of natural ingredients of hyaluronic acid, collagen and skin protein, patients can easily find a great result without undergoing any skin surgery. And new filler injections also contain many powerful ingredients that provide a long-term anti-aging result. Such procedure is popularly called as liquid-facelift or semi-permanent lift by many avid cosmetic surgeons. Unlike the surgical procedures, these procedures don’t change a person’s eye shape. Thus, the procedure gives a natural-looking and youthful appearance without making the patient look bony. Because the treatment treats the brow area minimally, it is suitable for men. Men in their 40s often see a decline in collagen and droopy skin. The procedure also stimulates natural boost of collagen under the skin, which lifts the facial skin naturally. Also, the procedure leaves no scars.
With the growing demand of aesthetic cosmetic procedure among men, it is true that the future of invasive and non-invasive facelift look very bright. As it turns out, cosmetic surgeons have now much easier procedures to treat busy men who don’t want to spend a lot of time in resting after the facelift procedure. Also, the procedure doesn’t cost much as an elaborate surgery. Those who want a facelift can also work with their insurance find the right plan for their treatment. Technologically advanced and minimally invasive procedures also work wonderfully in treating the saggy skin, puffy under eye skin and wrinkled forehead. According to many reports on cosmetic surgeries, it is true that men often opt for permanent skin-lift instead of a temporary one. No matter what they choose, these procedures surely leave a patient’s skin look tight, attractive and a few years younger.
