Do men ever get facelifts? How do you perform them differently than on women so that men don’t look too feminine?
This is an excellent question. The goals of face lifting for men and women are the same and that is to provide a more youthful and refreshed appearance. However, the placement of incisions for men is often different than women. This relates to the fact that men generally have thicker skin and therefore we are re-draping a heavier fabric. In addition, the presence of the beard and the fact that men wear their hair short requires that we customize the facelift incisions. We’ve written a textbook chapter on this very issue in the recent past and I see men with regularity who are requesting this type of rejuvenation. We’d be happy to visit with you.
