How is a male facelift different?

To achieve a natural outcome in a facelift for men, a full evaluation of skin quality, hairline, the presence of facial scars or sun damage, along with wrinkles, lines, and folds and drooping facial skin must be taken into account in surgical planning. Male facial skin is thicker in quality, has denser facial muscles, and a more prominent bone structure. These factors require specialized surgical techniques.

Facelift for Men

Should I get a male facelift?

If you feel that the signs of aging are affecting your personal life, social life, relationships, and your career, a custom facelift can restore a far more youthful look.

When under the care of Dr. Leong, you can expect the outcome to look entirely natural – a very important concern for most men. A facelift for men will treat the following facial problems:

  • Sagging facial skin
  • Drooping jowls
  • Etched-in lines and folds
  • Deep laugh and smile lines
  • Lack of jawline definition
  • Double chin

Will a male facelift be very painful?

Any discomfort can be alleviated with prescription pain medication, which is only necessary during the early stages of healing. Some swelling is natural, typically peaking at about two to three days, after which it begins to fade. Your face may feel numb, with sensation returning as the days pass. You will be free to return to vigorous physical activities in about six weeks.
