Face and Neck Lift for Men
What is men's face and neck lift? The most obvious distinct difference with face and neck lift surgery in males is beard growth. However, an equally important issue is how a patient wears his hair (short or long) and what hair loss has occurred or may occur. These issues will dictate a patient’s candidacy for these procedures and will be discussed in detail at the time of the consultation. If scars cannot be hidden in the hair of the temple or scalp because a patient wears very short hair, then he may not be a good candidate for a facelift.
On the other hand, many males wear a light or full beard, which may make candidates for a direct neck lift procedure. A direct neck lift excises excess skin and tightens the neck using scars located underneath the chin and on the midline of the upper half of the neck. This procedure addresses neck skin excess and laxity, (the “turkey neck”) as well as excess fatty tissue in the neck.
All of these issues will be addressed with Dr. Eckhaus at the time of your initial consultation.
