Facelift for Men
Male facelifts are different than facelifts for females. The scar in front of the ear is positioned along the crease in front of the ear to avoid bringing beard skin onto the ear itself. Men want their necks and lower face to be tighter but do not want the increased projection and fullness of the cheeks which is part of a feminine lift. The focus is on the lower face, on repairing platysma muscles (the turkey waddle) under the chin and on increasing chin projection with an implant, to restore a youthful jawline and neck.
Where Did Your Face and Neck Go?
Aging, sun damage and weight loss, are the major causes of skin damage and laxity. They are also the cause of deflation and sagging of the facial fat compartments.
Men typically notice significant facial aging after the age of fifty. There is no hard or fast rule. The timing of surgery depends on personal choice. Most men opt for their first face or neck lift between the ages of 55 and 60.
