Facial Surgery Dallas: What does a Facelift do?

Have you looked yourself in the mirror and wonder what options are available to rejuvenate your facial appearance? One of the most effective solutions to restore the first signs of aging is a facelift with a board-certified plastic surgeon. A facelift is a plastic surgery procedure that not only removes and tights the skin but also repositions muscles, fat, and skin.

Is a Facelift worth it?

Yes, facelift surgery has many benefits and is an excellent option for patients who appear older than their biological age. Facelift surgery helps patients rejuvenate and refresh their facial appearance by diminishing wrinkles and improving sagging skin in their cheeks, jawlines, and neck.

What is the best age to have a facelift?

Patients between 40 and 70 years old with some skin elasticity are good candidates to undergo facelift surgery. However, the first signs of aging can appear at any time. If you do not feel comfortable in your skin, contact Dr. Azouz, a facelift surgeon in Dallas, to evaluate your case and determine the best treatment for you.

What is the difference between a mini facelift and a facelift?

Depending on what problems you need to address in your face, Dr. Azouz will suggest a mini facelift or traditional facelift. 

What is a mini facelift?

A mini facelift can correct signs of aging without undergoing a complete facelift. A mini facelift smooths out creases, removes minimal excess skin that’s causing jowls or fat deposits from cheeks. Mini facelift surgery involves shorter incisions, and it has minimal scarring. Learn more about how Dr. Azouz performs Mini Facelift in Dallas.

What is a complete facelift?

A facelift corrects advanced and extreme signs of aging, and it may combine other facial procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to achieve dramatic results. A facelift is ideal for those patients with severe wrinkles, large jawline, or prominent cheeks. Time recovery varies from patient to patient; generally, it will take between 2 to 4 weeks.

Are facelift scars visible?

Facelift scars are very discreet and hidden in the hairline and behind the ears. Generally, it usually takes about six months for incisions to heal and start fading fully.

Facelift recovery time

After facelift surgery, each patient has their own healing time. With that being said, the time it takes to recover from facelift surgery with Dr. David Azouz and Dr. Solomon Azouz is relatively quick. It goes between 2 to 4 weeks. 

How long does a facelift last?

A facelift might last 10 to 15 years after surgery. However, time can vary from patient to patient, depending on their aging process. To help the facelift results last longer, keep your face moisturized and protect your skin from the sun. Dr. Azouz suggests applying sunscreen daily and wearing a hat during prolonged sun exposure.

How much does a facelift cost?

There is not a fixed cost for a facelift.  Price may vary depending on the surgeon’s expertise, surgical facility, anesthesia fees, and the extent of your surgical procedure. During the first consultation, Dr. Azouz will evaluate your condition and provide more information about the price according to your specific aesthetic goals.

Does insurance cover facelift surgery?

Health insurance does not cover cosmetic surgery. However, Dr. Azouz provides different financing options and payment methods for his patients who undergo a facelift in Dallas.

Men’s Plastic Surgery: The 5 Most Common Procedures for Men

More and more men account for thousands of plastic surgery procedures each year. Compared to five years ago there are twice as many men who are undergoing cosmetic procedures, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgeons. As men become more and more comfortable with refreshing their look through plastic surgery, it’s normal to wonder about plastic surgical options and the best plastic surgeons to get the job done.

What are the Most Common Men’s Plastic Surgeries?

Trends in plastic surgery change over time. In the past few years, men have been interested not only in cosmetic treatments such as botox or skin care but also in plastic surgery procedures. When it comes to plastic surgery for men there are a wide variety of options. The most common are:

Liposuction

Even with diet and exercise, men are just as likely to hang on to stubborn fat in some areas as women. If you’ve lost weight, liposuction is an effective way to remove pockets of fatty tissue so you can put the finishing touches on your new body. Liposuction is extremely versatile and can be used on many different areas of the body, including the stomach, thighs, hips, back, chest, arms, and chin. There are even different kinds of liposuction, and one may suit your goals for skin tightening or minimized scarring. Dr. Azouz performs High definition body sculpting, power assisted liposuction, Safe liposuction, tumescent, ultrasonic and laser liposuction. With all liposuction types, Dr. Azouz is able to perform liposuction with a quick recovery and with twilight (sedation) anesthesia.

Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia, or “man boobs”, is a familiar experience for many men. If you’ve struggled to lose the appearance of male breasts with dietary changes and exercise, it’s likely you can benefit from gynecomastia surgery. As body contouring techniques advance, you can achieve a more masculine-looking chest with little downtime or scarring so you feel confident both in and out of clothing. Many men choose to pair their liposuction and removal of gynecomastia with abdominal liposuction (daddy do over). Dr. Azouz also performs gynecomastia surgery with a quick recovery and with twilight (sedation) anesthesia. Dr. Azouz performs gynecomastia surgery with hidden scars through a minimally invasive approach.

Male Eyelid Surgery

One area where aging can become most visible early on is around the eyes. Whether it’s the upper eyelids that sag and affect your vision or lower eyelids that create tired-looking bags, eyelid surgery can remove dark circles or excess skin for eyes that appear more awake, and youthful. The best part is that this procedure can often be performed with little downtime or visible scarring. Combining a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) with body procedures or a facelift is a great option for many men.

Male Rhinoplasty

For men, the nose is a defining feature of a masculine profile. Men who feel that their nose doesn’t fit their features can find great results with rhinoplasty, as well as those who have suffered an injury that negatively affects their breathing capability. It’s often paired with chin augmentation to balance the face and achieve a chiseled, defined look.

Male Facelift

Men looking to rejuvenate their facial appearance can undergo a facelift. This surgical procedure eases signs of aging in the face and can both target sagging skin and smooth deep folds, achieving a younger look. Dr. Azouz is able perform mini facelifts, full facelifts and double layer facelifts in men with twilight anesthesia and an enhanced quick recovery.

Men’s Plastic Surgery in Dallas: Dr. Azouz reviews and explains why more men are seeking plastic surgery than ever.

Plastic surgery for men is becoming increasingly popular.  As times have changed, more males are having cosmetic plastic surgery and investing in their faces, chest, and bodies.

Men’s cosmetic surgery has expanded in both the volume and public interest.  Plastic surgery in men is incredibly popular today and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction), placement of pectoral implants and abdominal liposuction are some of the most popular procedures among male plastic surgery patients.

One thing is clear the taboos are over:

          Men want their bodies and face to look the best that they can.

The many options for plastic surgery procedures can be enlightening for men and can help boost confidence and encourage a better self-image. Let’s review examples of male plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery for more men.

Male Plastic Surgery for the Face:

Blepharoplasty, male eyelid surgery to rejuvenate the eyelids.

This facial cosmetic surgery for men is one of the most requested procedures. It involves the removal of excess skin on the upper eyelid and the removal of the eye bags that appear under the eyelids. 

The main benefit of eyelid surgery is that on the one hand, it eliminates the feeling of “looking tired”, can improve vision and can provide a younger look.  Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. David Azouz performs the surgery in such a way that there is no perceptible scar.

The key to eyelid surgery in men is to avoid feminizing the eyelid.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Azouz focuses on providing men a natural and masculine look with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).  Another benefit of eyelid surgery is that it can improve the symmetry of the face and remove dark circles under the eyelids.  Some patients can have improvements in their vision if the skin is blocking light reaching the eye.

Neck lifts are another of the most requested cosmetic surgeries for men.

A neck lift or inferior rhytidectomy is incredibly popular in both young and older men. Both younger men and older men seek to remove their double chin through neck liposuction and desire a stronger jawline via a chin implant.  Increasing the strength of the jawline and removing the double chin can provide an overall more masculine look and a slimmer appearance.

Neck Liposuction can provide a slimmer and more masculine appearance.

Older men often desire a traditional neck lift, whereby Dr. Azouz removes excess skin and jowling of the neck.  Dr. Azouz utilizes a hidden incision around the hairline of the patient’s ears while not altering the hair of the beard or sideburns.   Dr. Azouz conceals the incisions around the back of the ear, which hides scarring.

Dr. Azouz uses advanced liposuction techniques in neck lift and facelift patients.  Removing platysmal bands can also be performed in either a neck lift or a facelift.

Men’s plastic surgery: rhinoplasty (nose job), a classic of cosmetic surgery.

Rhinoplasty can provide dramatic results by remodeling the nose to provide a more cosmetic and symmetric appearance.  A nose that is in harmony with the rest of the face can provide a more aesthetic look.  Rhinoplasty is used to remove a prominent nasal hump, refine the tip of the nose and can correct asymmetry.

Cosmetic rhinoplasty can also be combined with functional rhinoplasty to improve breathing. With functional rhinoplasty, Dr. Azouz can straighten the nasal septum and reduce the nasal turbinates.  These techniques can improve airflow through the nose, can improve a man’s sense of smell and can even reduce the incidence of sinusitis.

The fact is that more and more men are seeking rhinoplasty for both functional and cosmetic improvements.

Male Plastic Surgery for the Chest:

Eliminating male breast tissue with men’s cosmetic surgery: gynecomastia and liposuction.

Gynecomastia in men is incredibly common and can be attributed to many medications, hormones, steroids, and marijuana use.

Liposuction and removal of gynecomastia (male breast reduction) is the best surgical solution for patients who have an increase in breast tissue who want a flatter, more sculpted chest or are bothered by prominent or puffy nipples. Gynecomastia surgery is well tolerated and is performed under local anesthesia and sedation on an outpatient basis.

Most men choose to remove gynecomastia and then work out to build up the pectoral muscles.  Male pectoral implants are commonly used for patients with Poland syndrome or for those who have significant chest asymmetry. 

Dr. Azouz performs liposuction and removal of gynecomastia with quick recovery, without drains and with camouflaged incisions.

Male Plastic Surgery for the Body:

Liposuction for men is used to eliminate the accumulated fat in certain areas of the body that is stubborn and hard to lose with workouts. The most frequent areas treated are the abdomen, hips, and flanks. In men, it is common to find this accumulation of fat in the abdomen and iliac rolls as compared to the leg.  Liposuction is associated with quick recovery and is performed with local anesthesia and sedation.

Tummy tucks and lower body lifts are common for men who have lost significant weight or have had bariatric surgery in the past.  A tummy tuck can be used to remove excess skin, stretch marks and scarring.  Many men choose to perform a tummy tuck at the same time they have their rectus diastasis or hernia repair performed.  A tummy tuck can be combined with male breast reduction (gynecomastia) surgery or with liposuction. Are you a man considering having cosmetic surgery? The cost of male plastic surgery is affordable for most patients and financing options are available.  Insurance can sometimes play a role if male plastic surgery is deemed medically necessary.  Tell board-certified Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. David Azouz or get in touch with us at 972-702-8888 if you have any questions!
