Men and women are very different, including in the way they age. Facelifts are the gold standard for achieving a more youthful appearance once the skin and tissue in the lower face and neck begin to sag. However, the procedure should be tailored for gender. A male facelift may have different objectives than the female counterpart to achieve the desired results. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, in NYC has the artistic eye and surgical skills to help his male patients retain a more youthful, yet masculine and natural, appearance with male facelift surgery.
More and more men want to retain a more youthful appearance and are willing to consider facelift surgery. This is not vanity, but a realization that looking youthful and attractive gives them more confidence in their personal and professional lives. A facelift can help match the appearance of the face to the energy level of the individual, making them look as energetic and competitive as they feel. Dr. Rosenberg always strives to create a more youthful appearance that never looks exaggerated or “fake” for a natural restoration of the male face.
Consideration for Male Facelifts
There are a few factors that must be considered when performing male facelifts. Using the same techniques as a female facelift may not achieve desirable results. Male skin and tissue tend to be thicker and heavier. Specialized techniques need to be used to elevate the tissue without making it look pulled or tight. Plus, the hairline needs to be a consideration, as many men have a receding hairline that could show incision points. Male facelifts also need to maintain a masculine jawline, as a diminished chin and jawline are common aging complaints among men.
If you are noticing sagging around your jowls, a receding chin and jawline or the beginnings of a “turkey waddle” on your neck, a male facelift may be the right choice for a more youthful appearance. Contact Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, at his office in Staten Island or NYC to schedule a facelift consultation to determine if this is the right procedure to restore a more youthful you.
