Facelift For Men?

YES! There is a facelift which is well suitedĀ for men. Men are generally more hesitant than women to have a facelift. They often worry about visible scarring extending into scalp or forehead, a pulled look, and a long recovery period. It does not have to be like that. My trademarked Tuliplift, which is performed under mild sedation, addresses all the above concerns. It doesn't give men a pulled or artificial look, recovery is usually 10-4 days, and scars are both limited in length and do not extend into hair bearing scalp.

In my practice, I've always thought of a facelift as a reconstructive process. Most men (and women) don't want to look drastically different. They just want to look younger and healthier without much downtime. Tuliplift offer several distinct benefits. First, it is a surgical facelift with tightening of the muscle and removal of excess skin. This ensures that the facelift will actually last for many years. Second, general anesthesia is not needed and the procedure is performed under mild sedation. Finally, the scar is shorter than the traditionally full facelift. This usually thin scar is lasered two to four weeks after the surgery. O2 facial treatments and lymphatic drainage, also performed after the surgery, help ensure a quick recovery.


Is your Tuliplift method same similar to Thermage? If yes, when you speak about Thermage you speak of fillers for nasolabial folds. These fillers are not permanent, correct?

What is ballpark cost range -- high low for Tuliplift?

Dear Steve,
Tuliplift and Thermage are entirely different procedures. Thermage is a non-surgical tightening of the skin using radio frequency and heat. Tuliplift is a surgical mini-lift performed under mild sedation.

The nasolabial folds can be treated with a variety of fillers. I prefer fat grafting using the patients own fat. Othe fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and Juvederm are easy to aminister but only last 6-12 months.

I hope this was helpful.
