Dr. Joseph T. Cruise, male neck lift specialist in Newport Beach, has created an age categorization system for treating the aging face. All too often plastic surgeons treat male aging with a one size fit all approach, which is not in the best interest of the patient.

Newport Beach male facial rejuvenation is far different and much more conservative in comparison to females. Men are almost always completely OK with a few wrinkles. In fact, many feel it gives them character. What men don't want is to look old, tired and out of shape, nor do they want to look "over done" with surgery. There is a very fine balance when it comes to male facial rejuvenation.

"The majority of my older male patients come in wanting a neck lift, however they don't truly understand the components of facial aging and what is necessary to provide them with the results they want," explains Dr. Joseph Cruise.

Newport Beach male neck lift procedures are far and away the quickest way of turning back the clock and regaining a man's "mojo." This is why neck rejuvenation is the most commonly requested procedure by men and performed by plastic surgeons. The major issue here is that not all necks are created equal. When examining the neck of men between the ages of 35, 45, and 55, there are substantial differences, and, because of this, treatment options will vary.

In order to provide men with a better understanding of what procedure may be needed, based on their age range, Dr. Joseph T. Cruise has established a categorization system.

30's-mid 40's - Men have considerable skin elasticity, which means that when the neck muscles are tightened and the fat is removed, the skin will snap back resulting in a youthful defined neck.

Mid 40's - mid 50's - Men really begin to lose skin elasticity. Tightening the neck muscles and removing fat alone won't provide much improvement. This is when adding a skin removal procedure, through an incision behind the ear, becomes a good option. It leaves no scar in front of the ears and does provide some added skin tightening. What this does not address are the jowls or the jawline. This would require an added incision in front of the ears. Men in this particular age range have a difficult decision. They must decide between an incision behind the ears only or in front as well. The advantage of doing both means addressing everything in one surgery and one recovery. In addition, the results will last a lifetime. While the skin will relax through the years, the improvement will always be there.

Mid 50's and older - Men in this age range really have no choice but to address the lower face and neck at the same time. The skin elasticity has weakened far too much. Incisions placed behind and in front of the ears is necessary to properly address the jowls, jawline, and neck. On a positive note, as men get older facial incisions heal better due to less collagen production, which equates to thin scars with little to no redness.

Dr. Joseph Cruise has also begun treating his Newport Beach male face and neck lift patients with the option of adding a chin implant. He states there are significant advantages to doing this. The chin implant provides a powerful, yet natural result with limited recovery. Without overstating its advantages, almost every man with a weak chin, lax neck, loose jowls or simply wants more power and definition within the jaw line, could use a chin implant. Overall, it is a very useful tool especially when combined with a neck lift or other facial procedures.
