Male Facelift

Naples Plastic Surgery

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 apperance match their inner vitality, many seek the services of Dr. Paul M. Gardner and Dr. Leopoldo M. Baccaro

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.

Facelift Surgery in Naples

Prior to every procedure, Dr. Gardner and Dr. Baccaro 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.
Dr. Gardner or Dr. Baccaro typically begin 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.

Mini Facelift Surgery

Mini facelift surgeries are among the most popular and common cosmetic facial surgeries performed today. Much like a full facelift, a mini facelift addresses facial wrinkles and sagging due to aging. The primary difference between the two is that the mini facelift is a minimally invasive procedure, and less undermining of the skin and muscle mobilization. The recovery time for a mini facelift is much quicker and it offers the benefit of shorter scars, however it is intended to treat mild to moderate signs of aging, and is most effective in treating the lower face and jaw line.
The mini facelift is done in the office using an oral sedative and local anesthesia. Incisions are made in front of or behind the ears in creases and folds. The skin is minimally lifted and the underlying muscle is tightened to contour the jawline and neck. The extra skin is removed and the incisions are closed, hiding them in natural creases.

Recovering from Facelift Surgery

Once Dr. Gardner or Dr. Baccaro 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. Dr. Gardner and Dr. Baccaro always review these risks with each patient prior to surgery, calling on their experience to help patients enjoy a healthy, pleasant recovery.
