Often times, men don’t look at themselves and think about needing plastic surgery, but when the two collide, it can generate outstanding results. That’s exactly what happened to “Nick.” As a middle aged man, he experienced facial aging that was bothering him. He wanted to look as young as he felt. After consulting with Dr. Burgess about his concerns, they agreed that a face and neck lift surgery was the best option to address his concerns.
A face and neck lift are considered separate surgeries, but it is often best to do them together because they move as a unit. A face lift specifically focuses on repositioning the tissue and removing excess skin, concentrating on the jowls and lower face. Whereas a neck lift removes fat, re-drapes tissue and removes excess skin from the neck area.
Our cars require maintenance but so do our bodies. The skin is the largest organ of our bodies and it requires maintenance. There are things we can do to help prevent facial aging before considering a face lift. But even after investing in surgery, it is important to have a maintenance plan. We often talk to patients about lasers, like Clear & Brilliant and SmartSkin. ThermiTight and ThermiSmooth that use radio frequent technology for skin tightening for the skin that remains behind after surgery. Medical grade skincare, like Neocutis, ZO or Epionce are just as important.
Men and women alike are considering this procedure, with goals for a natural looking and longer lasting result. Nick has achieved these goals, taking years off his face and looking refreshed. Now we will help him figure out his maintenance plan to keep his youthful appearance as he ages.
