A facelift is a rejuvenating procedure that can combat the signs of aging in the face. A facelift can significantly improve the appearance of deep wrinkles, loose skin, and other signs of aging and allow older patients to turn back time to better reflect a youthful spirit.
An ideal candidate for a facelift is someone who has:
Men develop fine lines, wrinkles and creases throughout the face and neck as they age. Years of sun damage, poor diet and stress can take their toll on your appearance. These visible signs of aging can cause many men to feel self-conscious or even depressed.
Men are becoming increasingly aware of the early signs of ageing and wish to address them before they become more pronounced. It may come as a surprise to some that one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men is a facelift, also known as rhytidectomy.
Face and neck lift surgery still remains the gold standard in facial rejuvenation to reverse the signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance. Dr. Turner takes great care to ensure the effects of your facelift give a natural and proportional rejuvenation while not betraying the fact that you have had plastic surgery.
Bandages will be applied to the face for the first 24-hours, but will soon be replaced by a lighter covering. You typically experience swelling and bruising during the recovery period. Dr. Turner generally avoids using drains if possible. You will be informed to keep your head elevated following the procedure. This will promote a healthy healing process.
Dr. Turner will follow up with you every few days. You will have the first follow up one to two days after their surgery. Follow ups are essential to monitor your recovery, remove stitches, clean incision sites and change bandages when necessary. Based on your recovery process, you will be informed when you can return to activities like exercise and showering as everyone’s body heals at different speeds.
All surgery has risks. Dr Turner will explain in the consultation how he manages risks including:
During your consultation, Dr Turner will discuss your goals, and provide an in-depth explanation of your desired surgery and what that means for you. He can also discuss different surgical techniques, benefits, and risks of procedures available.
Most importantly, however, this is the time for you to have all of your questions answered and to be completely listened to and understood by your surgeon. We ask that you please come prepared with any questions you may have for Dr Turner, and look forward to discussing your individualised plan.
Ensure you have done your research, both on your desired surgery, as well as your surgeon.

Many men wish to rejuvenate their appearance, just like women. They want to look as young as they feel on the inside. Men experience the same signs of aging that women do such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume. As men age, they are also more prone to experience loose skin and excess fat in the lower areas of their faces and neck. This can significantly age the face and create an undefined jawline. Some male patients state that they wish to have a facelift to appear friendlier, because as they age their wrinkles make them appear angry and unapproachable. This is important for men seeking a companion and especially those working in a client-based career.
Bald men often mistakenly believe that a facelift is not an option for them, but this study demonstrates that this is not true. A facelift can be a great way for a man to rejuvenate his facial appearance, even if he doesn’t have hair to hide the scars. It just takes a surgeon with
the experience and skill to do the procedure well.
About 1 in 10 people who get facelifts are men. There are different types, including a “mini” facelift. It often takes months for swelling to fully go down from any “lift” procedure.
A facelift is not generally for anyone under the age of 30. In most cases, a facelift works best for people in their 40s, 50s, and 60s when signs of aging begin to become prevalent.
Due to the natural ageing process and the effects of gravity. Facial ageing will unfortunately continue. With that being said, your face will always look younger than it did if you had never had a facelift done. Overall, this procedure tends to reset the clock, leading to a 10+ year advantage over individuals of the same age. If, over time, you would like an additional facelift, it is generally not as comprehensive as the initial surgery.
Scarves, hats, and glasses can help hide facial plastic surgery. Sunglasses may hide bruises and swelling after eyelid surgery or brow lift.
Patients who have undergone a facelift rate themselves as looking an average of 12 years younger after surgery, according to a study in the February issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
You will feel some pain 2 to 4 days after surgery. You may have some trouble opening your mouth for several days. The skin around the incision probably will be numb. You may have some itching or shooting pain as the feeling returns. But these are all temporary and will pass with time.
Final results are typically first seen six weeks after your procedure, with ongoing improvements beyond this point unlikely as the healing process fully completes over the coming 12 months.
A facelift often will enhance the appearance of your cheek, jawline and neck region but is considered major surgery. You should think carefully about your specific expectations and communicate your goals to your plastic surgeon.
Most facelifts are performed on people who are in their late 40s to early 60s. By this age, the majority of people experience the typical signs of aging: sagging skin and excess wrinkles, especially around the lower face and jowls. In most cases, a facelift procedure can make you look ten to fifteen years younger.
