What Are the Differences Between a Male Facelift and Female Facelift?
The first difference is aesthetics. Men prefer sharper lines, more feature definition, and a more robust jawline as opposed to women’s more delicate preferences. The TLC Men™ Lift goal is to define the jawline and contour the neck rather than soften the features.
Men also have major anatomical differences, like stronger ligament structures, thicker skin, and more fibrous fatty tissues, which require more vigorous manipulation and different techniques for the most natural results. Men also have more vascular structures, which comes with a higher risk of bleeding and post-procedure scarring.
The most outwardly noticeable difference is facial hair, which dictates the placing and type of incision. Dr. Lanfranchi carefully places incisions so as not to disrupt hair follicles to minimize scarring. Men also wear their hair very short, which changes how incisions near the ear are camouflaged. The lift itself pulls the beard line closer to the ear. How this is done helps maintain the natural results men most value.
What Results Can I Expect?
Because of Dr. Lanfranchi’s tried and true procedural techniques and the use of local anesthesia with oral sedatives, recovery is often easier. Because the focus of the TLC Men™ Lift is on the lower face and neck, downtime is determined by the patient’s healing abilities and overall health. Some patients need up to 14 days while others require only 7. Your custom recovery plan is created by Dr. Lanfranchi and Team TLC, who are with you every step of the way. You may require longer use of compression dressings, and we closely monitor your swelling and bruising.
