Male facial sculpting involves a combination of plastic surgery procedures for men, which are designed to address signs of aging, and create a defined, youthful, more masculine look.
Men who are dissatisfied with their facial appearance and would like to improve balance and achieve a more youthful look, are good candidates for male facial sculpting.
The plastic surgery procedures that are included in male facial surgery are typically performed under general anesthesia. The techniques used will depend on the specific procedures required to sculpt the face.
Results after male facial sculpting will take several weeks to show. It takes time for side-effects such as swelling and bruising to resolve, allowing final results to be seen.
Recovery after male facial sculpting varies depending on the treatments done. However, plastic surgery procedures typically require 1-2 weeks of recovery.
A brow lift gives the face a more refreshed appearance by rejuvenating the area above the eyes. This is achieved by removing excess tissue and elevating the brow area to reduce forehead wrinkles and frown lines.
Eyelid surgery corrects sagging droopy upper eyelid skin, and undereye bags that can make you appear tired and aged. Eyelid surgery removes the excess skin and fat around the eyes to give them a refreshed, more alert appearance. The incisions for eyelid surgery are made within the natural crease of the eyelids, so scars are indiscernible.
Facelift surgery is one of the most effective ways to reduce signs of aging in the mid to lower face. It addresses skin laxity, deep facial folds and wrinkles, and weak facial muscles. A facelift gives the face a smooth, youthful appearance. Incisions for facelift surgery are usually hidden within the hairline and around the ears.
Nose surgery or rhinoplasty alters the shape and size of the nose. It is the ideal procedure for men that are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose. Surgery may involve removing a dorsal hump, refining a misshapen tip, reducing excessive nostril flare, or even correcting septal asymmetry. The incisions for rhinoplasty are typically made within the nose, so scars are not visible.
Ear surgery or otoplasty is done to address protruding or prominent ears that are often a source of embarrassment. Ear surgery involves repositioning or reducing the ears so they look normal. Incisions for surgery are made behind the ear within the natural folds, so scars are not visible after surgery.
