Male facelifts are becoming more and more common. This Hollywood Reporter article talks about the growing popularity of face lifts in males, not only in Hollywood, but also amongst the general male population in particular. Here at our Inland Empire plastic surgery practice, we understand what men look for in an Inland Empire male facelift — they want to look youthful while maintaining their rugged and masculine looks.
Male vs. Female Facelift
While the techniques used in a male facelift are similar to that of a female facelift, there are noticeable differences between men and women which could prompt Dr. Tehrani to modify an Inland Empire male facelift approach. These differences include the following:
Since men have thicker skin (richer blood supply) than women, men are more prone to bleeding during and after their facelift. Medications which increase one’s risk for bleeding are also strongly discouraged such as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and certain herbs and supplements.
Hypertension is also more prevalent in men. Hence, the importance of monitoring blood pressure levels before, during, and after surgery.
Incisions and scars following surgery may be difficult to mask amongst men who undergo facelift. Most cover-up makeup today available in the market today is designed for women’s skin. Also, women find it easier to cover facelift incisions with their hair.
Finding Your Male Facelift Surgeon
Finding the right male facelift surgeon is as important as making the decision to undergo a facelift. Find a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Tehrani who has the necessary experience and expertise in performing facelifts in men. You might also want to review before and after photos of previous male facelifts by the plastic surgeon.
