Facelift Trends You Should Know


A faceliftTrends

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. Can you say Tom Cruise or Jennifer Lopez?  Not suggesting they had plastic surgery, but minor tweaks or major ones can

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
