Male Facelift Dallas
Facelifts are becoming increasingly popular among men as more liberal attitudes toward facial rejuvenation procedures are adopted. The goal of a Dallas male facelift surgery is the same in that a well-rested, relaxed appearance is desired. Tightening the skin minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and emphasizes facial contours.
However, the approach is tailored to highlight definition in the jaw, neck, and chin, as opposed to concentrating on cheekbones, nose, and mouth areas in facelift surgery for women. During your consultation, Dallas facelift surgeon Dr. Rai will be able to show you the specific goal of your endoscopic facelift surgery. Typically, Dr. Rai’s male facelift patients are executives in their late 40s or early 50’s who want to look as youthful as they feel. Dr. Rai’s technique avoids the artificial operated look after facelift surgery. You will return to work in ten to 14 days looking rested and energetic.

Special Considerations in Male Facelifts
Male Facelifts are different than Facelifts in women. This is because of anatomical and structural differences between men and women. Some of these differences are outlined below:
Blood Supply of Face:
Men’s facial skin is thicker and has more adnexa (beard and sebaceous glands). Consequently, there is the abundant blood supply to the skin of the face. This is beneficial for healing after facelift surgery. But, it also increases the risk of post-operative bleeding. Postoperative control of blood pressure becomes more imperative to avoid bleeding in men.
The hair pattern of face and neck is altered from rearrangement skin of face and neck at time of facelift. Beard growth of face is present below ears before facelift. At time of facelift the skin is repositioned upwards and backward. Thus, some hair bearing skin gets repositioned behind ears. This will require an adjustment in shaving technique after surgery to shave beard in its repositioned state.
If facelift incision was to be made along edge of tragus (Prominent front part of ear complex) there will be new beard growth over the tragus after the surgery. This will happen because beard bearing skin is now overlying tragus of the ear. This will need to be shaved. Occasionally electrolysis of hair that overlay tragus needs to be considered after surgery.
Occasionally location of the incision is modified to avoid this change. We shall discuss various incisional options with you at the time of your consultation.
Male Pattern hair loss:
Male pattern hair loss results in receding hairline in men. This limits options for effective forehead lift and brow lifts in men since any scars on the forehead will be hard to camouflage after surgery. Thus, forehead lifts are not frequently opted for in men.
Limited improvements can be achieved with endoscopic forehead lift techniques when possible.
All the above factors are taken into consideration while we plan your facelift. Facial rejuvenation is a process that encompasses many facets and available options. All these are discussed with our patients at the time of consultation and planning.
