If time has caused unwanted sagging and wrinkles around your cheeks, jowls, face, and neck, you may look older than you feel. Thankfully, a Facelift in Concord and Boston can erase years off of your face while still producing natural-looking results.

What is a Facelift?

A Facelift is done to remove excess skin on the face and neck, resulting in a more youthful appearance. For those who feel that their face does not reflect their age, or feel uncomfortable or self-conscious due to their sagging facial skin may greatly benefit from this Boston facial procedure.

How is Facelift surgery done?

During Facelift surgery, an undermining of the skin will be performed to separate the overlying skin from the deep tissues of the skin. Then, deep layers of your facial tissues are lifted. The skin will be raised from the face, and excess fat and skin will be removed. Finally, the skin will be re-draped over the remaining tissue, and incisions are closed. Drainage tubes may be placed, and dressing will be applied.

What are my incision options?

There are two incision options used when it comes to Facelift surgery. The first is a traditional facelift, where incisions start at the hairline and temples and run around the front of the ears, finally ending in the natural crease behind the ears.

The second is the limited incision facelift, where shorter incisions will be made starting at the temples and continuing down around the front of the ears, hiding in natural creases.  If you are experiencing early signs of aging, a Concord mini facelift may be the best procedure for you.

Who is a good candidate for a Facelift?

Patients who have sagging skin around the mid-face or jawline, are experiencing deep nasolabial fold or marionette lines, have lost facial volume or muscle tone in the face, or are experiencing sagging skin on the neck, producing a double chin can benefit from Facelift surgery. Ideal patients are healthy and have realistic expectations for their surgery outcome.  Men considering a Facelift may be interested in a Male Facelift in Boston for proper treatment.

What should I expect during recovery from Facelift surgery?

Recovery from Facelift surgery often takes two to three weeks. Bruising and swelling will occur but should fade with time. Any discomfort can be controlled with prescribed pain medication. It is recommended that any important social events be postponed at least six weeks after surgery.
