Rejuvenate your appearance & renew your confidence
Have you ever heard that a man’s appearance grows more refined as he ages? While that may be true for some men, the aging process doesn’t leave us all happy with what we see in the mirror. Time and gravity inevitably take their toll, causing skin and muscle to sag, and keeping a man from looking as vibrant and healthy as he feels. If you’re unsatisfied with age-related changes to your face, it may be time to consider a facelift.
Board-certified and Harvard-trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Kiya Movassaghi, has helped men in Eugene look and feel their best for nearly 20 years. A facelift can correct jowls, tighten sagging cheeks and loose neck skin, and smooth deep furrows—taking years off a man’s appearance and restoring his natural confidence.

Ensuring a natural appearance for male facelift patients
Many of the characteristics that distinguish a male face are readily apparent: a more prominent brow, wider face and neck, stronger jawline, and facial hair. Men also have thicker, heavier skin that contains more blood vessels. This presents a unique challenge to a plastic surgeon when it comes to performing a natural-looking facelift.
Dr. Movassaghi specializes in facelifts for men by adjusting his surgical approach for each patient and using techniques that will preserve a man’s uniquely masculine facial features:
- Subcutaneous tissues (tissues beneath the skin that provide structural support) are lifted and repositioned so the skin lies naturally over the face. The result is a face with sharper, more refined features without a tight or “pulled” look.
- Special consideration is given to incision placement to ensure that facial hair growth is located in a natural pattern and minimize scarring to the maximum degree possible, as the typical men’s haircut does not provide much camouflage.
- “Hard” features such as frown lines, brow drooping, and nasolabial folds are softened by lifting facial skin, making you appear more open, rested, and approachable.
“Dr. Movassaghi is truly a master of his craft and more than a surgeon – you are an artist. Needless to say, the results of my surgery never cease to amaze me. After one year the scars have disappeared and ten years, if not more, off my face. Every penny was worth it.”
Non-surgical facelift options to meet your goals
While a facelift may be the procedure most commonly associated with facial rejuvenation, the most appropriate procedure for you may include one of several non-surgical facial procedures. These may be performed on their own or in conjunction with a facelift.
Generally, a facelift will target the middle and lower face, while brow and eyelid surgery will address aging around the eyes and forehead. Unlike other surgeons who individually target areas of the face and neck with their procedures, Dr. Movassaghi offers an innovative “leveled” approach to facelifts. All his facelifts address the neck and lower face, but patients can choose to enhance more of their face as they move up in levels, providing a more comprehensive rejuvenation—and more natural-looking results.
Non-surgical treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers can smooth more surface-level wrinkles to further refine the results of a facelift, or they can be used on their own to rejuvenate your features if you are not quite ready for surgery. These non-surgical options are also a great way to maintain the results of your facelift long-term.
Men’s facelift surgery & recovery
Dr. Movassaghi performs male facelift surgery as an outpatient procedure, either using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on your preferences and the extent of the procedure(s) performed. Incisions and time in surgery will vary depending on the nature of your facelift.
Recovery after a facelift can be surprisingly quick for a healthy patient; following your post-operative care instructions is key. Discomfort is typically minimal and easily controlled with pain medication. Most patients can resume light daily activity after a few days and feel ready to go out in public in as little as 10 days, after sutures are removed and the majority of swelling has subsided. While you will need to refrain from lifting or straining after a facelift, more vigorous exercise can typically be resumed after about 1 month.
Noticeable swelling and bruising are typically gone within 4-6 weeks after surgery when final results are apparent.
Results that will last for years & age with you naturally
Having a facelift is like rewinding the clock and giving your appearance a fresh start. With proper skincare (wear sunscreen!), your results will age with you gracefully. Though nothing can stop the natural aging process from continuing, a facelift will ensure your face always looks more youthful and refreshed than it would on its own.
