Sun damage, genetics and skin elasticity all play a significant role in how men age. In many instances, patients who feel young and energetic on the inside experience sagging skin and wrinkles. In order to have their outer appearance match their inner vitality, many seek the services of Dr. Mark Walsh and Dr. Andrew Bonett.
A lot of men are coming into Gardner Plastic Surgery because they want to do something about their face. They notice that they’re aging, they’re seeing increasing lines, they’re seeing folds that have developed, their eyelids are getting saggy and they want to do something so that they can look as good as they feel.
So, a lot of men are coming in for non-surgical options like Botox and fillers to help with the wrinkles and folds. For patients that have advanced and really want to tighten things up–maybe they got a little fat in their neck with some loose skin that they want to tighten up–they’re coming in for surgical options.
The most important thing for men and plastic surgery is to make sure they come out with a very natural result. Nobody wants to come in and look like they had something done, they just want to look better. What we focus on, whether it be surgical or non-surgical, is to make them look better and more youthful all without changing their appearance or making them look “done”. That’s very important to me.
Prior to every procedure, Dr. Walsh and Dr. Bonett meet with their respective patients for a one-on-one consultation in order to determine their goals and expectations. The surgeon uses information gleaned from this consultation to develop a personalized treatment plan designed to help achieve these goals. In some instances, the surgeon may suggest that patients combine their facelift surgery with liposuction in order to remove fatty tissues along the jawline and into the neck, helping patients who suffer from a “double chin” appearance.
The surgeon typically begins the procedure by carefully making easily concealed incisions in front of and behind the ears. Next, the surgeon gently tightens loose skin and extracts excess tissue, artfully removing years or even decades of sagging and wrinkling.
Once Dr. Walsh and Dr. Bonett complete a facelift surgery, they wrap patients in large, fluffy dressings to minimize swelling and encourage faster recovery periods. Patients require two weeks of recovery before engaging in normal daily activities, and full recovery typically takes about four to six weeks. Mini facelift patients can return to normal activities after just a few days.
As with any surgical procedure, there is a risk for complications, including infection. Drs. Walsh and Bonett always review these risks with each patient prior to surgery, calling on their experience to help patients enjoy a healthy, pleasant recovery.
Health is the highest priority to our surgeons, so they operate with great care when working with patients to improve the aesthetics and functionality of the face. They take pride in helping patients begin their journey toward meeting their aesthetic goals and strive to help patients obtain the results they desire.
