Specialized Facelift Procedures for Men

While every facelift is designed to make the patient appear more youthful and more attractive, there are some differences between a facelift specifically for a female and a facelift for a male. If you’re a man who is considering a facelift, it’s important to choose a plastic surgeon with an in-depth knowledge of these differences.

How is the Male Facelift Different?

Because of the nuances of male faces, the skin and technique needs to be approached a certain way when performing facelifts for men. Men have the following differences than women: 

  • Thicker facial skin
  • Thicker connective tissue
  • More blood vessels 
  • Denser muscles
  • Stronger bone structure

What other procedures are commonly combined with a facelift?

Above all else, maintaining facial harmony is of the utmost importance in a facelift. Because of this, we frequently combine a facelift with a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or facial implants.

What if I have severe wrinkles and sagging?

In severe instances of facial aging, our experienced plastic surgeons usually recommend skin removal and recontouring of the deeper tissues of the face and neck to achieve extensive facial rejuvenation.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

Before your facelift procedure, you will need to meet with us to determine if it’s the right surgery for you. We will begin with a comprehensive evaluation of your face—the forehead, cheeks, eyes, nose, earlobes, chin, jawline and neck—to identify what needs to be treated. We then seek out opportunities for limited incisions to reduce downtime and scarring. After this, we will determine the optimal treatment plan to get the balanced, natural-looking, improved appearance you want.

Non-Surgical Options

For patients who only have minor signs of facial aging, we combine subtle excess skin removal with non-surgical rejuvenation options to achieve aesthetic improvements and a healthier, more youthful look. These non-surgical procedures include:

  • Energy-based facial resurfacing with Renuvion™/J-Plasma®
  • NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift™ for thread lifting and collagen stimulation
  • Deep microneedling with radiofrequency skin tightening 
  • A long-term skincare regimen and good maintenance
