Male Facelift Surgery FAQ
How is a male facelift different?
It is important not to feminize the male face with a facelift. Men tend to have stronger jawlines and lower set brows. The fat in their cheeks is distributed differently than women. It is important to respect these features when performing a facelift on a male patient. Where as in a female patient the neck is contoured to camouflage the Adam's apple in a male patient it may be contoured to accentuate it.

Are male facelifts more risky?
That depends on the individual patient rather than the gender. Male patients also tend to have a slightly higher risk of hematoma due to increased blood flow and hair growth. This risk can be minimized by meticulous technique during surgery, stopping all blood thinners, and strict control of blood pressure.
Will I lose my sideburns from having a facelift?
No. There should be no loss of sideburns from a male facelift. Incisions can be placed so that scars run just along the hairline with hair growth thru the scar preserving the shape of the sideburns and temple, while providing excellent camouflage for the scars.
Will I have hair growth behind my ears after a male facelift?
Yes, it is possible to have hair growth behind the ears if there is a lot of loose neck skin with a dense beard. As this neck skin is shifted posteriorly this will carry that hair bearing ability with it.
How would I deal with this unusual hair growth?
This can be treated with laser hair removal or intense pulse light. This should not be performed until the facelift has had adequate time to heal. Consult your surgeon at Forever Faces Plastic Surgery as to the timing of this.
Can I have a hair transplant at the same time as my facelift?
Yes. Many patients obtain hair transplants especially to increase the density of the frontal hairline at the time of their facelift surgery. The hair from the scalp that would normally be discarded is used to accomplish this. This does add some time to the surgery but enables a much more youthful look.
Do male patients get fat grafting with their facelift?
Yes. Male patients get fat grafting but it is essential to understand the difference in the distribution of fat in the male face vs the female face. For example, fat can be used to enhance the midface, chin, or jawline whereas a female patient may receive a higher cheek than a male patient.
