Men Can Undergo Facelift & Neck Lift Surgery, Too!
- Posted on: May 10 2023
It often seems as though plastic and cosmetic surgery is only for women, but that’s just not the case! While women may more openly discuss plastic surgery, the truth is that men undergo cosmetic enhancements to their faces and body too. That’s because men have the same aesthetic concerns and goals as women do. So, why should these surgeries and treatments be solely targeted toward women?
One of the most common surgeries requested by men is a neck lift. To achieve a more balanced and natural-looking appearance, most plastic surgeons prefer to combine a facelift with a neck lift. This can effectively diminish the appearance of a sagging lower face and turkey neck, which in return, can increase your self-confidence and overall well-being.

What Can Facelift and Neck Lift Surgery Help Men Achieve?
Over time, the skin on our faces can begin to break down, causing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as sagging skin. Many men struggle with jowls on the face, and these age-related skin concerns can make men look much older than they actually are. The main purpose of a face and neck lift is to remove excess skin (and some fat) in the lower face and neck. Both of these procedures can help create a more natural, masculine, and contoured facial aesthetic.
Along with the numerous physical improvements to their face and neck, men can feel a stronger sense of confidence and self-esteem after undergoing one or both of these procedures.
How Do Men’s Facelift and Neck Lift Surgery Differ From Women’s?
It’s important to understand that a man’s body, and his skin, differ from a woman’s, which is why plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures must be performed differently on both men and women. With facelift and neck lift surgeries, the structure of the face, the facial hair, and the general aesthetic preferences of men require these procedures to be performed in a particular manner.
When it comes to cosmetic procedures, one of the most notable differences between men and women is that fat in men is more fibrous and harder to remove than in women. Because of this, your surgeon must use a variety of liposuction techniques to successfully remove stubborn fat to achieve a masculine appearance along with tighter, more youthful skin. This is particularly important with neck lift surgery since men tend to have fat that accumulates in the neck and along the jawline (including the jowls).
As for facelift surgery, the incisions for men are different than they are for women. While a woman’s incision is placed behind the ears, a man’s facelift incision is positioned in front of the ears and around the hairline so that it preserves the appearance of sideburns and doesn’t affect beard growth. Making sure to not disrupt hair follicles or create excessive scarring where the hair cannot regrow is a top priority when it comes to male facelift surgery.
Although the overarching goal of a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance is the same, men and women often strive for a different overall aesthetic. Women often prefer a softer, more delicate appearance while men prefer a more sculpted jawline. Choosing the right surgeon can make all the difference when it comes to achieving the facial appearance you desire.
