Male Facelift Incisions & Scarring
One of the essential differences in technique between facelifts for men and facelifts for women is the positioning of incisions to ensure minimal visibility and minimal scarring. In facelifts for women, the facial skin is tightened and moved back toward the ear. The natural contours of the ear are used to hide scars from the facelift procedure.
This procedure cannot, however, be used in facelifts for men. The reason is that there is a very distinct line between a man’s ear and his facial hair. Moving the facial skin back creates the weird phenomenon of the facial hair growing too far back on the face, sometimes within the ear. This is not desirable.
Facial surgeons skilled in male facelifts take extra time during the facelift surgery in order to create incisions that will result in a natural facial hair line and natural sideburn placement with minimal scarring and minimal visibility, even for men who are balding or have short hair.

Reasons for the Male Facelift
In pop culture and society, men are expected to age gracefully and ruggedly. But many people have genetics that interfere with that. Additionally, stress, diet, trauma, lack of sleep, smoking and environmental exposure can all cause premature aging, deep wrinkling and excessive sagging.
Many men experience jowling and sagging of the skin near the jawline that erases one of the most masculine characteristics men have: a defined jawline. Add to that excessive chin fat, neck fat and the “turkey neck” and you can see why a facelift is an option many men are looking into. It is not uncommon to be genetically predisposed to the “turkey neck” with loose jowls and sagging neck fat and skin.
A male facelift can help men maintain a rugged look while defining their jawline and cheekbones for a chiseled, rested and youthful look.
The male facelift is the most effective way of turning back the clock to achieve a more youthful appearance that is a fresher version of yourself. Facial fillers can help reduce wrinkles, but when it comes to sagging skin, there is no better solution than a male facelift.
Male Facelift & Other Cosmetic Procedures
For those who are satisfied with their facial features but are simply experiencing the effects of gravity and age, a male facelift is a perfect solution. However, for those who are unsatisfied with their frontal or profile view due to some imperfection, the correct procedure may be something else in addition to the facelift.
A facelift does not change bone structure. It simply tightens and lifts facial muscles and skin.
But facelifts can be done along with other procedures. For those who are seeking to slightly alter their appearance, a male rhinoplasty can correct any imperfections in the nose. Others may experience saggy, puffy eyelids. For them, an eyelift along with a facelift can return them to a more youthful appearance.
Men also get brow or forehead lifts and laser skin resurfacing as part of their overall facial rejuvenation.
