Male Facelift Surgery

As the field of plastic surgery has grown, more and more men are seeking natural and masculine-appearing facial rejuvenation surgery in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. Dr. Talei, dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery has become a specialist in primary and revision facelift surgery for men using the SMART deep plane facelift technique.

How does a male facelift differ from a female facelift?

Many surgeons encounter difficulty rejuvenating the male face, as the most commonly used techniques in women don’t work very well in men. Standard SMAS plication techniques typically fail to show any durable or noticeable natural change in the face or neck. Firstly, male facial anatomy tends to have thicker skin, more prominent musculature, and distinct facial features compared to females. As a result, male facelift techniques must be tailored to address these differences while preserving masculinity and avoiding feminization. Male facelifts typically focus on maintaining or enhancing strong jawlines, defined chin contours, and natural facial expressions, while female facelifts often prioritize softer, more delicate features and emphasize rejuvenation of the neck and jawline. Additionally, male facelift incisions must be placed differently to accommodate beard growth patterns and conceal scarring effectively. Dr. Talei possesses a keen understanding of male facial aesthetics and employs techniques that achieve subtle yet impactful results while maintaining the patient’s masculine identity.

Dr. Ben Talei’s Innovative Approach: The SMART Deep Plane Technique

The SMART deep plane technique differs significantly from most facelifts performed in the country. The most commonly used techniques alter the hairline, put significant amounts of tension on the skin, cause noticeable scarring, and only temporarily pull the SMAS and platysma layers using suture pull. The SMART deep plane technique is a vertical vector, modified and extended deep plane face and neck lifting procedure. It focuses much more on muscle and facial release than on skin pull. With this method, less dissection is performed directly under the skin and more is performed between the muscle layers. This allows for the most natural and effective repositioning of drooping and sagging tissues in the face and neck. Dr. Talei can use nearly any facelifting technique available today, but he almost always elects to use this technique because of the reliable, reproducible, durable and superior results.

Does male facelift surgery look natural?

Male facelift surgery, when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon, can yield remarkably natural-looking results. Modern techniques emphasize subtlety and preservation of masculine facial features, ensuring that the outcome appears refreshed and rejuvenated rather than overtly altered. Dr. Talei takes great care to avoid the “pulled” or “windblown” appearance commonly associated with older facelift methods. Instead, he employs advanced approaches that reposition underlying tissues, tighten lax skin and address specific aging concerns while maintaining the individual’s unique facial characteristics. By customizing the procedure to suit each patient’s anatomy and aesthetic goals, Dr. Talei can achieve results that seamlessly integrate with the patient’s facial features and expressions. Additionally, advancements in surgical technology and post-operative care contribute to faster healing times and reduced recovery periods, further enhancing the natural appearance of the male facelift. Overall, male facelift surgery can produce subtle yet transformative outcomes that harmonize with the patient’s appearance and exude a refreshed and revitalized look when performed with precision and artistry.
