Men’s Facelift – Vancouver
David K. Ward, MD
David K. Ward, MD, is one of the most sought after cosmetic surgeons in Vancouver. He has extensive experience helping male facelift patients achieve a more youthful and rejuvenation appearance by enhancing their chin and neck contours.
An Overview of the Male Facelift Procedure
Typically most men undergoing a facelift are able to go home the same day as their procedure. If they elect to undergo an addition al procedure such as a men’s browlift, then they may be required to spend the night at the Valley Surgery Centre or choose to have a nurse take care of them in their own home.
Dr. Ward also works closely with bed and breakfast owners with nursing experience who can provide post-surgical care.
What is the Recovery Time?
Most male facelift patients are able to control any pain or discomfort with oral medication. Patients typically go home with a head dressing, which is removed the next day at the same time a small drain is removed. Dr. Ward removes any sutures between four and seven days after surgery. Patients generally notice that any bruising or swelling subsides after 10 to 14 days post surgery, though some slight swelling may remain for a few weeks.
Many male facelift patients are able to return to normal activity after three weeks. The main result of a men’s facelift is typically evident between four and six week, and additional improvements will occur for the next few weeks.
The facelift incision is hidden in the contour of the ear and extends around the earlobe and back into the hairline. These incisions can be easily concealed with makeup or the patient’s hair.
