Male Facelifts vs. Female Facelifts

Plastic surgery is not just for women. While it is true that the majority of patients who seek cosmetic surgery are women, a growing number of men are considering professional help when it comes to enhancing their appearance. Today, countless men are undergoing facelifts to defy the signs of aging. Unsurprisingly, due to the increasing demand for a male facelift procedure, it has become one of the top five most popular cosmetic surgeries for men. A male facelift, when done by a highly skilled surgeon like Dr. Slupchynskyj, can result in a highly satisfying outcome that revives the patient’s youthful look and improves his facial features. Not many people know that a male facelift varies greatly from a female facelift, but addressing these differences is actually the key to a natural, seamless result.

Difference of Male Facelift and Female Facelift

Creating different approaches for the male and female facelift are vital for natural results. For example, facial hair is the main factor when performing a male facelift. We know that men have a thicker facial hair, and their hairline is different from women. Thus, careful incision is important for keeping the hairline looking as natural as possible. Male facelifts also demand for incisions that will not lead to excessive scarring. Overly thick scars will prevent the hair from growing, thus Dr. Slupchynskyj will avoid this to produce a subtle and flawless result.
Furthermore, men have stronger facial ligaments, making it more difficult to handle men’s facial tissue. To avoid the over-stretching of the skin, tissues, and muscles of the face, meticulous techniques must be performed during a male facelift. Men also have more vascular structures than women. Dr. Slupchynskyj’s methodical approach for a male facelift will prevent excess bleeding and any superfluous scarring.
Compared to a woman’s facelift, a male facelift focuses more on the lower part of the face. This is due to men’s stronger facial features, like thick skin and sharp contours around the jaw and the neck area. Sculpting these areas during a male facelift is also necessary in order to prevent the face from looking rounded, soft or feminine.
