As prevailing attitudes about aging and appearance have shifted, more men are seeking facial rejuvenation procedures. As a result, it’s more important than ever that aesthetic surgeons understand the nuances that impact male facelift procedures, according to Timothy Marten, M.D., of the Marten Clinic of Plastic Surgery in San Francisco, Calif.

Dr. Marten, who has authored over 20 textbook chapters on facelift surgery and related topics, presented “Facelift for the male patient—is there really a difference?” during the 2017 Vegas Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology meeting, in Las Vegas.

“… plastic surgeons have recognized that a diminished margin for error arguably exists in male patients, due to the fact that men have fewer options to conceal their scars or a mediocre result,” Dr. Marten says. “Plastic surgeons have also come to recognize that, in most cultures, male facial aesthetics differ from those thought desirable in females and attractive masculinity is not as closely equated with youth and beauty as is femininity. As a result, men generally seek a somewhat different outcome from facial rejuvenation surgery, and this has led to a rethinking of techniques that have evolved mainly to treat facial aging in women.”

New approaches and a rethinking of aesthetic goals now allow for an effective rejuvenation of the male face, while preserving a natural, masculine appearance, he says.
