As male plastic surgery becomes more popular, an increasing number of men are opting for facelifts to restore a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. The procedure can make you feel younger and more handsome, boosting your self-confidence. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman has helped many patients turn back the clock to look and feel their best with a male facelift in Northern Virginia and Alexandria.
There are certain subtle differences between the faces of men and women which must be addressed when performing a male facelift. For instance, men have thicker facial skin and a richer blood supply in the region than women, increasing the risk of bleeding or hematoma. Also, since men do not wear makeup and generally have a higher hairline, the incision must be carefully placed to reduce visible scarring. Our team will take all of these factors into account when customizing your facelift to ensure that you receive the best possible results.
Who Can Receive a Male Facelift?
An ideal candidate for a male facelift:
- Is in good health
- Has sagging in the cheeks, around the neck, and in the jaw line
- Has realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure
Dr. Desman can assess a Northern Virginia or Alexandria man’s circumstances to determine whether a facelift would be right for them.
What Makes a Male Facelift Different?
While the overall aesthetic goals of a facelift are similar for men and women, the surgery is approached a little differently. Dr. Desman employs several special techniques to address the unique physical attributes that distinguish a man’s face from a woman’s.
In order to ensure that your scars will be as undetectable as possible, our team will place the incision along the crease where your ear meets the side of your face, around the earlobe, and along the lower scalp area under your hair. Fat and excess skin will then be removed, and Dr. Desman will tighten muscles and facial tissue in order to make your face look younger.
The majority of male facelifts specifically address wrinkles in the mid facial region, lower face, and jowls. If you are looking to address signs of aging around the eyelids or forehead, Dr. Desman may recommend blepharoplasty or a brow lift in conjunction with your facelift.
