Male vs Female Facelift: What’s the Difference?

 Age doesn’t care what gender you are, so it’s no surprise that 20% of The Lanfranchi Center’s patients are men seeking facial rejuvenation. Men’s facial structures differ from women’s in a variety of ways. Having a facial rejuvenation specialist who knows these differences is critical to the outcome of your facelift. That’s why The Lanfranchi Center is the right choice.

How the TLC Men™ Lift Works

When it comes to facial anatomy, men do differ from women. That’s why the TLC Men™ Lift was created. Dr. Paul Lanfranchi has specialized in facial and neck rejuvenation for the entirety of his career, and has performed more than 1,000 facelifts on men with successful, natural results. The TLC Men™ Lift is specifically designed for men to address jowling, sagging jawlines, and neck banding through the SMAS layer and platysma muscle, the underlying structure of the lower half of the face and neck. Shifting the underlying tissues rather than stretching the skin better redefines the jawline, tightens lax tissues, and corrects neck wrinkles. Many patients add a chin augmentation or upper or lower eyelid lift to shave off even more years.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Ideal candidates are men experiencing moderate to severe signs of aging, such as deep nasolabial folds, jowls, neck banding, and a loss of jaw definition. The best candidates are in good physical health and have realistic expectations of the outcome. A consultation with Dr. Lanfranchi is the best place to start.

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. 

When considering facelift, you want the best physician available. You want an expert in facial and neck rejuvenation who understands your unique anatomy, has the techniques and experience to achieve the results you desire most, and the compassion to see you through your facelift with as much comfort and care as possible. You’ll find that and more at The Lanfranchi Center. Call today for an appointment. 

“Dr. Paul Lanfranchi is extraordinary! I recently moved here from NY. For many years I have been back and forth with having a facelift done on myself. I always felt and looked old for my age. It wasn’t until one day I went to see my nephew play and as I go to say hello to my niece one of her friends asked to her “Is that your grandmother” I seriously had tears in my eyes. I turned to my husband and said “that’s it I’m going to find a plastic surgeon to get a FACELIFT “. So my search began reading reviews and making consultations. It was at Dr. Lanfranchi’s office that from the minute I scheduled the appointment and had the consult with Dr. Lanfranchi I left his office with a smile on my face and my Facelift appointment. I could not believe how easy and quick the recovery was. I had my facelift done on a Friday and went to my interview the following Friday. Now at work I love stating my age because the reaction on people’s faces when I tell them I will be 50 next year they are stunned. I now love myself and thank the extraordinary work that Dr . Lanfranchi did with my FACELIFT! Thank you Dr. Lanfranchi for making me look and feel beautiful and younger.
I highly recommend anyone looking to get a facelift visit the Lanfranchi Center. You not regret it!” *
