About a Male Facelift
Plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho performs a full variety of facial cosmetic surgeries at Chiseled in Spring, TX, including facelifts. This surgery focuses on precise areas of the face to address loose skin and wrinkles in order to create a smooth and youthful appearance. Depending on your concerns and goals for surgery, a facelift can focus on the top, mid, or bottom portion of your face — or all of these areas at once to attain an all-around younger look. The facelift method used depends on your desired outcome, the condition of your skin, the amount of laxity present, your lifestyle, age, and unique facial structure. Some people may be candidates for a full facelift, while others may only want a mid-facelift. Dr. Cho is an experienced surgeon who understands the complex anatomy of the face and uses that knowledge to produce gorgeous, natural-looking results. If you live in Spring, TX or near The Woodlands, give our office a call to learn more.
Chiseled also offers several nonsurgical options for attaining a tighter and younger-looking facial contour with cosmetic injectables and Silhouette InstaLift. Commonly known as a liquid facelift, this option combines both wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to soften wrinkles and enhance volume. For a nonsurgical male facelift, Dr. Cho uses Silhouette InstaLift, which uses biocompatible threads that provide a subtle and natural-looking lift to the face. Additional nonsurgical facelift options include RF skin tightening with energy devices like Exilis, Morpheus8™, and Profound® by Candela™, as well as the minimally invasive procedure FaceTite®. During your initial consultation, Dr. Cho can discuss all of your aesthetic goals and unique concerns to determine whether a liquid facelift or nonsurgical facelift with Silhouette InstaLift is right for you.
"Filler in the Right Places by the Right Surgeon. - Spring, Texas - My face was looking sad again after a midface lift several years ago and after having Dr. Cho put some Restalyne in my tear troughs I decided to go back for his advice on the overall face. He knows every characteristic of fillers and he advised Voluma in the cheek bone area to give my face lift along with Juvederm in the nasal fold and marionette lines. What a difference it has made! My face looks more uplifted and rounded than before. Dr. Cho said Voluma is thicker and "tethers" to the underlying structure so should last 2 years. I was happy to hear that. Also, there are no tell tale signs of work done and people think I just caught up on my sleep. The above cost represents 1 Voluma, 1 Juvederm and 2 previous Restalyne syringes (tear troughs, upper lip and a depressed area under the jaw). There were rebates on the product when I went in for filler during a "Special Event" day in February. Dr. Cho's injections have resulted in such subtle improvements I wouldn't think of changing injectors, even if another practice was having a big discount day. In my opinion, it's the surgeon's experience and eye for detail that really matter and so far Dr. Cho has done everything right."- M. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2015
"Dr. Cho is an amazing surgeon with bedside manners - I am a repeat client and Dr. Cho, his staff all have great bedside manners which is extremely important to me. Dr. Cho is a skilled surgeon who knows his stuff. I highly recommend Dr. Cho and Dr Chiang. I had a Quad Blepharplaty with Brow Tacking, and accutite to face and neck. Im into Day 11 and have scratched my cornea but I am healing very nicely,day 4 was the worst day and I am over the hump."- C. / RealSelf / Jul 09, 2019
"Dr. Cho, thank you so much!!! You and your team are all amazing!!! I had a thread lift done overseas that got screwed up. I called many Doctors and every place I called, I got the runaround. Dr. Cho was the only one who made time. He is so knowledgable and kind and equally - has a great hand. Rachel the front office person, equally incredible! It takes a team to make a place great! I never felt rushed and he took his time with everything. In one visit, Dr. Cho was able to fix a bad thread lift that most Dr’s refused to help. Dr. Cho and his caring team beyond exceeded my expectation! 10 stars not 5. Also, I read one bad review where someone was upset they had to wait. The way I see it, I would camp out 24 hours to wait for Dr. Cho but I would NOT camp 24 hours to buy an iphone. And if Dr. Cho is behind its only because once he sees you - you will never feel rushed and he will give you his undivided attention. Much Love to everyone at Integrated Aesthetics, Cindy"- C.O. / Google / Oct 03, 2019
Candidates for a Male facelift
Ideal candidates for facelift surgery are in good general health and wish to correct visible lines and wrinkles on their entire face or just part of it. It's important to understand that a specific age does not necessarily mark the time in life for men to have a facelift. There are countless factors that may influence a person's decision to undergo this procedure, but no matter the reason, there are numerous lift techniques that we can use to address your unique concerns. The technique chosen will vary for patients who are in their 30s versus those who are older, such as those who are 60 or 70 years old. Skin laxity is one of the key components in the decision-making process.
Depending on your individual needs, there are numerous facelift techniques to consider. Some facelifts treat the upper portion of the face while others focus on the middle and lower. In addition, some methods are slightly more invasive and intricate than others. It's common for some patients to have a brow lift or BOTOX and fillers to complement their outcomes. Some of the more common facelift methods include:
- Full Facelift
Considered the gold standard, the full or "traditional" facelift generally makes an incision along the hairline, extending down to the area near the temples, and stopping near the base of the ears. The underlying facial tissue and muscles are delicately stretched and safely tightened to produce a lifted appearance, which softens excessive wrinkles and sagging. The traditional facelift is used for patients who have visible, aggressive signs of aging. During a full facelift, many methods may be used, including an eyelid lift to address the eyes or a neck lift for the lower region.
With a similar method to the mini lift, the mid-facelift addresses the hollow and lax areas around the cheekbones as well as the upper jaw and jowls. Fat grafting is often used during this procedure to help amplify the final outcome. The mid-facelift works great for those who seek improvement in the middle to lower region of their face.
- Lower Facelift
This lift addresses lax skin in or around the chin, jowls, and neck. Nonsurgical treatments, such as KYBELLA injections can also be incorporated into this method to help attain a younger-looking neckline.
- Mini Facelift
During a mini facelift, a tiny incision is placed near the ears to elevate the skin, which enhances the mouth and jawline. This process creates nice and subtle enhancements that look natural.
after your procedure
Following your procedure, we will monitor your health before releasing you to be taken home by a responsible adult. In addition, Dr. Cho or someone on our staff will schedule your follow-up visits and provide post-treatment instructions to help you heal faster. You should expect to experience bruising and swelling, as well as some moderate soreness and discomfort, which prescription pain medication can help reduce. Optimal healing usually occurs after about a month, at which time you can expect a softer and younger-looking appearance. Overall, your face will appear slightly lifted and rejuvenated.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which technique is best for me?
The recommended technique for you will depend on your concerns, goals, level of skin laxity, treatment areas, and other factors. During your initial consultation, Dr. Cho can talk to you about the benefits and limitations of each method to determine which one may be ideal for you.
Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?
Although we offer several nonsurgical facelift procedures, such as liquid facelifts and Silhouette InstaLift, these options usually only produce mild improvements. If you have moderate to severe skin sagging, facelift surgery is probably the best choice to improve your appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Cho will discuss your options, including nonsurgical procedures, to help you choose which is best for your cosmetic goals.
Will my results look natural?
Some patients worry that facelift surgery will make their skin look overly tight, or like they live in a wind tunnel. Dr. Cho focuses on giving you results that look natural so that you appear refreshed, not fake. He listens to your needs and goals before creating your personal treatment plan with the technique likely to produce your best results.
