There are many reasons and all are valid.

Male facelift surgery takes special skills and experience. The asethetics are much different between women and men. The basics are:

1. The face should not be pulled too tight.  This will result in a unnatural look.

2. The hairline position must not be altered.  The correct framing of the face is important and the hairline creates this visual.

3. A strong jaw line is perferred  This is a masculine appearence.

4. If a eyebrow lift is performed, it must not be too high.  This can femanize the male face.

5. If an eyelid lift is done the eyelid crease show should be no greater than 5 .

millimeters or it will femanize the eyelids.

Browlift and Facelift Surgery Marin | Sonoma County

Marin County, California – Browlift surgery is a wonderful adjunct to facelift surgery.  There are three popular techniques.  The open browlift, the endoscopic browlift and the minimal invasive technique without the endoscope.  For the purpose of discussion we will  lump the latter two techniques together.

The open eyebrow lift is the goal standard for comparison in the total facelift procedure.  This is the oldest technique and involves a long incision from ear to ear.  The muscles are relaxed at the forhead and frown lines.  The brow is held up in position by excising a section of scalp.  This holds extremely well for long term.  The complication for this procedure are significant and this is what brought about a new alternative.  The open brow has hair loss, long scars with potential hair loss and numbness to  the top of the head. Another advantage of thes procedure is for shortening the forehead. See A below.

The endoscopic forehead lift as part of the facelift has become a popular technique.  The procedure involves small incision in the fore head and the endoscope is used for the internal release and relaxation of the frown lines. No scalp is excised and the elevation is maintained by fixation to the skull.  The complications are less than the open approach but recurrence of the brow ptosis occurs more.
