Why Are More Men Having Facelifts?

Posted April 26, 2023 in Male Facelift

3 Min Read: There is increasing pressure on men to look good, particularly when it comes to employment. To add to this, more jobs are switching to remote, meaning that men are having to stare at their faces all day with Zoom meetings. Unfortunately, these cameras are unforgiving, and they often bring emphasis to aging features like wrinkles, creases, jowls, and double chins.  

Because of this, many men are turning to plastic surgery to stay competitive in the job market.

One of the most popular and transformative plastic surgery options for men is the male facelift. This procedure helps men correct facial concerns associated with the aging process while maintaining a masculine appearance and improving confidence. 

Below, we’ll take a look at facelift surgery and discuss why now is a great time to consider undergoing this cosmetic procedure.  

Why Do Men Choose Facelift Surgery?

Like women, men choose facelift surgery for aesthetic and emotional reasons. 

Male facelift surgery offers the following benefits:

  • A better defined jawline with less jowling
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds
  • Smoother facial contours
  • Tighter skin in the neck

Men choose this procedure to:

  • Feel more confident and comfortable with their appearance
  • Restore a more youthful look when wanting to stay competitive in the job market or rejoin the dating scene

What Can a Male Facelift Accomplish?

Facelift surgery is a transformative procedure that helps men reduce (or even eliminate) the presence of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin laxity in the lower and midface. 

With this surgery, the underlying tissue and muscle in the face is tightened, and sagging skin is removed to give men the sculpted appearance they’ve always desired. 

Additionally, many men find themselves concerned with the presence of jowls and sagging skin beneath the chin (double chin), but a facelift can help to remove excess fat in these areas and tighten the skin to give men a more contoured jawline and chin.

By itself, facelift surgery can transform a man’s facial appearance; however, if you are looking to achieve even more dramatic results, you can include other facial procedures, such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and/or brow lift surgery (forehead lift)

By combining procedures, you can address cosmetic concerns in the entire face, which can help balance your stunning results.

How Does a Male Facelift Differ?

Male facelifts require different considerations. First and foremost, the plastic surgeon must be aware of facial hair growth and ensure the incisions do not interfere with this growth. 

Additionally, men tend to have thicker skin, muscle, and connective tissue, which must be taken into account. 

On top of all of that, men choose facelift surgery to maintain a masculine and rugged facial profile. They want to maintain a strong jawline and defined features; they just want to eliminate noticeable wrinkles, deep folds, and neck laxity.

Therefore, it is very important that your surgeon doesn’t do anything that can risk feminizing the results.
