Many men may not talk about it, but facelift trends and statistics speak volumes. Since the covid-19 pandemic, more and more men have adopted facelifts to upgrade their aesthetics. But what exactly is a facelift?
These are facial surgical procedures that mainly entail tightening the skin. It may range from repositioning your sagging muscles to reducing excess skin on your face. At Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery, we have the expertise to perform these intricate procedures. Every surgery aims at restoring natural curvatures to improve your facial appearance.
What has Influenced Facelift Trends?
More than two years after the pandemic, offices, and businesses closed up, forcing people to work from home. So, business meetings had to be held online via Zoom. The platform made a lot of people conscious of their appearance.
Consequently, this has led more and more people to explore facial plastic surgery. Similarly, others have opted for other aesthetic procedures.
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), these numbers will continue to rise. Notably, approximately 1.4 million surgical and non-surgical procedures were conducted in 2021. Compared to the previous year, the procedures performed increased by 40 percent.
The increase in these surgical procedures can be attributed partially to the zoom effect and people working from home, giving ample time and flexibility to recover from a surgical procedure. Working from home has also allowed people to have more disposable income to pay for cosmetic surgery.
Facelifts are still the gold standard in facial rejuvenation. They are often combined with fillers to add volume and laser treatment to improve the tone and texture of the skin as a facelift on its own only tightens and removes excess skin. Most people prefer a procedure that lasts for years to come.
Social Media Influence
Social media platforms have greatly influenced the increasing rate of facelifts. Notably, the Zoom effect has increased people’s urges to look better on-screen. Such facial procedures offer the ultimate solution.
Besides Zoom, other platforms such as TikTok have gained significant popularity. They have become part of modern culture, whereby people post videos. According to AAFPRS members, a substantial percentage of individuals who want facial procedures consider video conferencing an upcoming influence.
The selfie trend has been a trend for quite some time. People want to look better physically but also on camera. This sudden increase in self-awareness has influenced people to seek out facial procedures.
How about Gender Influence?
Traditionally, women were the ones who were associated with facelifts. However, this trend has taken a turn. More men have adopted facial surgeries and aesthetic treatments, including blepharoplasty and neurotoxins. As a result, plastic surgery practices no longer target women only and now focus on male and female procedures.
Some of the most common plastic surgeries conducted on men include rhinoplasty, gynecomastia (male breast reduction), liposuction, and blepharoplasty. However, hair transplant is the only procedure where males seem to surpass females.
Similarly, age is a significant determinant when it comes to these procedures. The largest increase in procedures is among younger patients, especially those below 56 years. Older individuals seem to refrain from facelifts because of health concerns; however, in Florida, among the active senior population, facelifts are still one of the most popular procedures.
Time for Surgery
If you have been thinking about getting a facelift for some time, do your research and find a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon with years of experience, such as Dr. Gerard Mosiello. Then, schedule a consultation to discuss your surgery and desired result. Many men and women choose to have a facelift earlier, giving them that never aging look.
