A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is not designed to change the way you look, but rather to make you look the absolute best for your age. With time, the deeper tissue in the cheeks, lower face and neck become loose, start to sag and distort the youthful, natural features of the face. With men, this results in flattened cheeks with deep nasal folds, jowels that hang over the jawline and looseness in the neck.
Typically, facelifts are thought of as a procedure for those of advanced age, when in reality there is no “right” age. The time to have a facelift is when the signs of aging have become noticeable enough that it bothers you. It is not uncommon for men to have a facelift in their 50’s in order to improve the contour of their face and recreate a defined, strong jaw and neckline.
