Many people considering facial rejuvenation in Boston end up having a facelift, known medically as rhytidectomy. Facelift surgery tightens up loose skin and removes fatty deposits under the chin and jaw, improves the appearance of “jowls” and helps to restore a more youthful appearance. A facelift can greatly reduce the appearance of sagging in the mid-face and neck.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

During aging our skin loses its elasticity and gives in to gravity. For many, this can cause sagging around the neck and jaw line. Fatty tissue can collect under the chin; thick cords under the skin of the neck can form.  Today more than ever, men and women in their 40’s,50’s and 60’s are more active, healthier and more productive than ever.

If some of the natural signs of aging have been increased by genetics or previous stress has taken a toll on your looks, or if you would benefit from a more youthful appearance that matches your general good health, energy level and lifestyle, a facelift may be right for you.
