My husband is interested in getting a facelift and I’m all for it. Are there any differences in how the facelift is performed in men?
The male facelift patient requires more attention to the placement of the incisions to prevent visibility of the facelift incisions, and also to prevent alteration in the beard, sideburns, and hairline. Another difference between the male and female facelift is that the male has a higher incidence of postoperative bleeding due to the vascularity of the facial hair so meticulous hemostasis and possibly the addition of one day of drains is something I do more frequently in male facelift patients than in female facelift patients. Men are equally interested in rejuvenation of the neck as are females, but, tend to be less interested in areas of the face such as the nasolabial folds and mid-face as females.
