There are certainly some plastic surgeons that do more male facelifts than others. Male facelift does require certain special considerations. Male faces have some anatomically unique features, unlike female faces, that need to be addressed in order to achieve excellent result. Seek out a surgeon with a large male facelift practice. Do ask to see some before and after photos to assess the surgeons ability to create dramatic and yet natural results.

Male cosmetic surgery is up to 10% of cosmetic surgery done. Certainly, if one has expertise in female plastic surgery then one should have expertise in male plastic surgery. They have some differences in that the dissection may be somewhat harder and post operatively male patients require more reminders of post operative instruction. Overall, males are quite similar to female patients in many respects.

Surgeons specializing in male facelift.

There are few if any surgeons that restrict their practice to male facelifts.  Because the facelift procedure is so similar when performed in either men or women, busy facelift surgeons will be doing both.  The important point is that the surgeon understands the nuances that distinguish a successful facelift in men vs women.

Yes - and it is worthwhile to find one who specializes in just for men plastic surgery, for facelifts in men can be particularly challenging procedures due to the importance of sideburns and the heavier skin as well as the typically shorter hair styles.

 I believe that the real questions is how do you, as a patient find a surgeon who will make you look more ruggedly handsome with a Face Lift?  The answer is to find a face Lift Surgeon that understands and follows the proper aesthetics of facial beauty so the Face Lift can be combined with facial shaping to increase angularity in the face which is a masculinizing trait.

Facelifts for Men

I'm not aware of any surgeon who specialize in facelifts for men but almost 50% of the patients in my facial cosmetic surgery practice are men. Techniques are different in men because of the pattern of their facial hair and the thickness of their skin. A surgeon must be careful to avoid feminizing a man after their facelift.

Plastic Surgery For Men

Many plastic surgeons who perform facelifts for women also perform facelifts for men. If you're considering undergoing a facelift, it's very important to select a surgeon who can meet your needs and goals. The best way to make sure a natural result is achieved through a male facelift is to ask to see your potential surgeons before and after photos of the procedure you're considering. Selecting a board certified facial plastic surgeon also ensures that a doctor with the highest level of training performs your procedure.

  Look for a board certified facial plastic surgeon who specializes in facial rejuvenation and chances are that surgeon has performed many male facelifts.  There are some technical  nuances  between male and female  face lifting techniques such as maintaining the beard pattern and dealing with thicker skin and more fullness in the neck area.

Dear Belayon,

The surgical technique for facelifts are the same for men and women.  Men often bleed more and their skin/soft tissues are thicker, but otherwise the actual techniques are the same.  Sideburn management is also slightly different in regards to incision placement in men, but that's a minor part of the surgery.

The best advice I can provide you with is to see a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for a consultation.  Ask to see pictures of male patients.  Choose a surgeon with results that appeal to you.

Best,
