Facelift in Boston - Rhytidectomy Wellesley
In older people, or those exposed to large amounts of sun or stress, wrinkled, creased skin can develop on the face, neck or forehead, along with fat deposits and folds around the jaws and jowls. While a facelift can’t stop the aging process, in many cases it can “turn back the clock.”
Facelift is a common term that often is used to include both the face and neck lift. These are often done together but can be separated in order to tailor the surgery to your needs while minimizing both the scars and recovery time. Facelifts can be performed alone, or with other cosmetic procedures such as eyelid or forehead surgery. Depending on the area to be treated, facelifts usually involve incisions made along the hairline, which extend around the ears to the lower scalp. The skin is lifted away from the fat and muscle underneath, and excess fat is removed. The doctor tightens the remaining tissue, and the skin is then replaced, tightened and secured with sutures or clips.
Dr. LoVerme performs the newest styles of facelift. He does the short scar facelift or S-Lift which is really a “mini” facelift for younger patients with only early signs of aging. For those who need more, he performs the “two-layer” facelift, tightening not only the skin but the underlying muscle & fascia for a more natural but complete result. He tailors the operation specifically to your needs.
Swelling and minor discomfort last at least a week, and stitches are usually removed within two weeks. Make-up can be applied within a week. Most people may return to exercise after three weeks.
