The Male Facelift

Traditionally, women have been the customary facelift patients; however, that trend has been changing for several years. More men have been seeking facial enhancement for a more youthful appearance. What is driving this trend? You may be surprised.

Wisdom and Youth

There was a time when the more mature-looking male was venerated. With silver hair came the wisdom of the ages. Older people in general were looked upon with favor for their knowledge and expertise; however, when it came to aging, men always fared better than women. Now, however, older men are also finding that they, too, are losing their edge in certain careers. This is causing many to seek the services of plastic surgeons to restore their youthful visage.

According to a recent article in the Washington Post, this trend is particularly affecting men in the tech field. Where people turning 40 used to get the surprise “over-the-hill” parties with the somber black theme, in places like Silicon Valley, that has now shifted down to those reaching their 35th birthday.

Changing Your Look Naturally

Men have many of the same issues as women when it comes to aging skin. Loss of volume and elasticity produces wrinkles and lines. Gravity helps sagging skin morph into hanging jowls.

Fortunately, today’s products and techniques make a male face lift easy to achieve without the result looking artificial or strained. Under the care of a skilled plastic surgeon, you can look years younger and still have a natural look. This is important for everyone who is considering a facelift, but even more so for men, due to certain gender-related differences.

The Male Face

When considering a male facelift, differences need to be taken into consideration. When surgery is involved, placement and types of incisions are critical. Men generally have more facial hair than women. Excessive scarring could damage hair follicles and keep hair from regrowing in the damaged area. Incisions must be placed in camouflaged areas so scars will be well hidden, even when the hair is short.

The male face is also shaped differently from the female. These differences need to be addressed whether the procedure is surgical, or minimally invasive like Botox® injections. Males prefer strong jawlines, sharp chins and a well-defined neck.

Additionally, there are also anatomy differences that need to be considered. For example, men have more veins and arteries. This can increase the risk of bleeding and scarring after surgical procedures.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
