Our face is our most visible feature. Through it we convey to the world what and how we feel. Facial aging includes a loss of skin elasticity and firmness, sagging tissue and wrinkles. These visible signs of aging greatly impact how we feel about ourselves and how others see us. The loss of youthful contours of the midface, jaw line and neck may cause us to appear sad, angry, or tired even when we are full of energy and excited about life.
If you are bothered by the signs of aging in your face, then a facelift in our Boston center may be right for you. In general, face lifting tightens sagging facial muscles and skin to restore a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
Modern facelifting techniques make the procedure safer than ever. In our Boston office, the patients have a choice of anesthesia. Facelifts can be performed under oral sedation and local anesthesia, reducing your operative time and office stay, as well as providing for more flexible scheduling. For those who want deeper sedation, intravenous anesthesia is always available with our Board certified anesthesiologists. As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can’t stop this aging process. What it can do is “set back the clock,” improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. The goal is always to give you the most natural result possible.
The eyes are our most intriguing and revealing facial feature. They draw attention and convey expression. Through them we see others and others see us. Often, our emotional and physical wellbeing is reflected in the eyes. Unfortunately, signs of ageing can greatly impact the appearance of the eyes.
If you are bothered by upper eyelids with excess, drooping skin, or by the puffy, baggy lower eyelids – all of which can make you look angry, sad, or tired even when you are not – then cosmetic eyelid surgery in our Boston center may be right for you. In general, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) corrects the redundant skin and/or fat in the upper and lower eyelids for a more youthful and energetic appearance.
The nose is the most prominent aspect of the face. It defines balance and harmony amongst facial features. When the nose is out of proportion with the rest of the face, it affects self-image and confidence.
If you are bothered by the appearance of your nose, cosmetic rhinoplasty in our Boston center may be right for you. In general, rhinoplasty improves the appearance and proportions of the nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence.
