The Male Facelift

Male model half of face The “male facelift” is quickly becoming a popular procedure among men in their forties and older. Even though many men focus on living a healthy and active lifestyle, the appearance of their face does not always reflect how they really feel. While all men and women experience the process of aging, the areas of the face that are affected most can be quite different between the two sexes.

Most men undergoing a facelift procedure usually need improvement for one or more of the following condition

  • Creases in the lower eyelids
  • Muscle laxity in the cheeks
  • Lack of definition in the jawline
  • Sagging skin in the neck

The biggest difference between a male and female facelift is the placement of incisions. Since men usually have shorter hair than women, the incisions cannot be as easily hidden in the hairline. This is where it takes an experienced board certified surgeon like Dr. Terry Dubrow to perform a successful male facelift.

To make the incisions as inconspicuous as possible, there are a few different places that they can be made, including in the creases of the ear, beneath the chin, or in the hairline of the sideburns. Oftentimes, men choose to combine a facelift with an eyelid lift to achieve total facial rejuvenation.
