When it comes to plastic surgery, there’s a huge misconception that cosmetic procedures are only for women. Male plastic surgery has been a booming business for the past couple of years, and for good reason. Men have the same right to want to reclaim their youth and look their best every day. If you’re a man and you’re considering plastic surgery, you shouldn’t feel alone. Let’s go over exactly what you need to know about one of the more popular male procedures, the facelift.
Men Get Plastic Surgery, Too
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the facelift, we want to explore the fact that men are undergoing cosmetic plastic surgery now more than ever before. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, men made up for nearly 1.3 million cosmetic procedures in 2018 alone. Male facelifts are no exception. More than 12,000 men nationwide got a facelift in 2018, and the numbers keep rising as time goes on.
What is a Facelift for Men?
A facelift for men is a facelift procedure that is geared specifically towards enhancing the male features of the face, including a rugged chin and a chiseled jawline. Men who come in for a facelift often notice changes in their face caused by aging, including developing jowls and losing definition along the jaw. While most men we see come in for a facelift are between the ages of 50 and 60, there is no perfect age to consider a male facelift.
Facelift for Men vs. Facelift for Women
Many factors make a male facelift a little different from a facelift done on a woman. One of these factors is facial structure. During your male facelift procedure, Dr. Fee makes sure to restore your masculine features keeping in mind the shape of your jawline and, your current facial hairline, and the shape of your chin. Plastic surgery for men also differs a little big in the way the body handles surgery. Men’s facial skin typically has a richer blood supply than women’s. This means that men need to be even more aware of taking blood-thinning medications around the time of surgery and recovery.
