Specialist Plastic Surgeon, Dr Jake Lim performs facelifts for men in Sydney.
Facelift surgery, also known as meloplasty or rhytidectomy, can tighten and remove sagging skin on the face and neck. For men, a meloplasty (facelift) can aid the appearance of the face, cheeks and jowls.
A Meloplasty (Facelift) can improve otherwise permanent signs of sun damage, poor diet, stress and ageing such as:
- Sagging jowls
- Fat that has fallen lower on the face
- Loose skin and fat deposits under the chin and neck
- Deep creases caused by excess skin around the mouth.
As a specialist plastic surgeons in Sydney with vast experience in meloplasty (facelift) surgery, Dr Lim can develop a personalised treatment plan that focuses on the problems that concern you.
The length and placement of surgical incision will be different for everyone — it’s dependent on factors like how toned the skin is and how much is being corrected.
For the majority of meloplasty (facelifts) performed, incisions begin just above the temple in the hairline and end behind the ear. This allows Dr Lim access to tighten underlying tissue and remove excess fat and skin. A second incision under the chin is sometimes necessary.
Dr Lim will do his best to minimise scarring, and the location and length of your incision will be discussed with you in the consultation process. In men, care is taken to ensure the beard is not pulled onto the ear.
Meloplasty (facelift) are individually customised to each patient depending on their personal requirements — during the consultation period, Dr Lim will take you through all available options and possible outcomes.
A meloplasty (facelift) may take a few hours and is performed under general anaesthetic in an accredited hospital. You will be required to stay in the hospital overnight.
After your surgery you will notice some swelling and bruising which should subside in two to three weeks. You will need to wear a garment around your face all day and night for the first two weeks. This will help decrease the bruising and swelling. Dr Lim will review you post-operatively and will prescribe analgesia and antibiotics for you to continue at home.
My Klinik staff will stay in touch with you after the procedure, monitor your progress and answer any questions or concerns as they arise. You’ll have reviews with Dr Lim one week, one month and three months after surgery.
Your final results may be noticeable in one to two months, while incision lines or scars will continue to refine for the next year.
Our goal is to make your experience as supportive as possible — Dr Lim and the My Klinik staff are always willing to answer any questions you may have.
