What Is a Male Facelift?
When it comes to keeping men looking youthful and energetic in the boardroom or having that edge to compete in the interview process for jobs, facelift surgery can bring you to new heights. Facelifts for men should be approached differently than for women. First of all, guys have thicker skin, more hair follicles and blood vessels in their facial skin. Risks and complications can be higher. In addition, hair bearing skin can be brought up to and behind the ears when the skin flaps are pulled back, thereby changing your shaving habits. In addition, Dr. Lille believes that full facelifts have the potential to feminize men and cause their looks to change significantly.
How Does a Male Facelift Work?
A facelift for men is performed using carefully placed incisions that allow for efficient elevation of the SMAS, the superficial muscle and fat layer that connects the muscles to the fat and skin. These minimal incisions are made using techniques that limit visible post-surgical marks.
The procedure ensures that there is no obvious “worked-on” look. This is done by removing any tension using techniques that tighten the facial muscles and other tissues.
Before & Afters
Is a Male Facelift Right for Me?
A male facelift may be perfect for you if you have any of the following:
- Sagging jowls
- Loss of facial skin elasticity and muscle tone
- Prominent wrinkles
- Loose skin
Candidates must be in generally good health. You may not qualify for a male facelift if you are suffering from serious medical conditions or are currently taking medications that may hinder the recovery process. Smoking also disqualifies you from this procedure; if you are a smoker, you will need to quit several weeks before the surgery.
Your Male Facelift Consultation
Setting up an appointment for an initial consultation is the first step to determining whether a male facelift is right for you. When you meet with Dr. Lille, you will discuss your goals and expectations from the procedure.
He will conduct an evaluation of your general health, skin, and face. Your complete medical history will be discussed. You will be given the full details of the surgery, from preparation to aftercare.
The adage “less is more” goes a long way in male facial rejuvenation surgeries. Elevating and dissecting large facial skin flaps in full facelifts increases bleeding, swelling and bruising which prolongs recovery. By addressing each aging sign of the face and concealing the scars along facial wrinkles, results can be optimized without increasing risks and downtime.
To achieve this, Dr. Lille concentrates his surgeries on:
- Raising the eyebrows by placing incisions in the deep creases of the forehead
- Soften the deep creases between the cheek and the mouth area by excising the deep nasolabial crease
- Eliminate the turkey gobbler neck by performing a midline Z-plasty necklift, where a zigzag scar is hidden below the chin area. This great procedure tightens neck muscles and removes excess skin and significantly reduces facial jowling.
- Fat grafting to cheek areas to provide a scaffold support to the mid-face can really help alleviate the “gaunt” look.
- Adding a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) can turn back the clock ten to fifteen years without changing your look. Special attention must be made to the lower eyelid in older males. Conservative approaches using a lateral-pinch lower eyelid lift can avoid the eye-shape changing results of the more aggressive lower eyelid surgeries.

The Recovery Process
The recovery period following a facelift for men typically lasts between one and three weeks. While there may be minimal discomfort after your procedure, swelling and bruising are expected for the first seven to ten days. Strenuous activities during this period must be avoided to ensure continuous healing.
How Much Does a Male Facelift Cost?
The cost of a male facelift depends on factors such as anesthesia fees, preparatory tests, prescriptions, surgeon’s fees, and more. Full price details can be provided during your consultation.
