Are you a male considering a facelift? Are you wondering if the procedure is different from a female facelift? Dr. Joyesh Raj, a respected facelift surgeon serving the Cleveland area, can help remedy your confusion. In this post, he reveals the main differences between male facelift and female facelift.
While males and females pursue facelifts for similar reasons, their aesthetic goals tend to be different. A male facelift tends to focus on defining “masculine” features in the face. This includes creating a sharp chin, defining the jawline and reducing jowls in the neck. A female facelift tends to focus on defining “feminine” features in the face. This includes creating a softer appearance and eliminating wrinkles.
Males and females have different anatomies that impact the facelift. A male facelift must take into consideration the unique male anatomy. Males tend to have stronger bone structure with thicker skin, muscle and connective tissues. This makes surgical manipulation more difficult, and most male facelift procedures focus on the lower part of the face. An experienced plastic surgeon will consider these differences and know how to create a natural appearance post-surgery. Males may have a more difficult facelift recovery because they tend to have more veins and arteries which impact bleeding and scarring.
The female facelift tends to be simpler than the male facelift because female faces tend to have a more delicate bone structure with thinner skin, muscle and connective tissues. This makes surgical manipulation easier. Female facelift recovery also tends to be easier because females typically have fewer veins and arteries which impact bleeding and scarring.
Hairlines impact male facelift and female facelift. During male facelift, plastic surgeons must take into account hairlines and facial hair when planning incisions and performing the procedure. During a male facelift, a plastic surgeon will have to consider shorter hair, baldness, sideburns, beards and moustaches when planning incisions. After a male facelift, beard position can change and may require different shaving techniques.
Females have less facial hair, tend to have more hair on their head and wear their hair longer. In female facelift, plastic surgeons often take advantage of the female hairline by making incisions along it, which helps conceal both the incisions and postoperative scarring.
