What is a Face Lift?

Face lift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, restores a youthful look to the lower portion of the face by tightening sagging facial muscles and tissue and removing excess skin and fat from the cheeks, jowls, and chin. Patients benefit from:

  • Well-defined cheek bones and jaw line
  • Softened marionette lines and nasolabial folds
  • Improved contours of the neck

Many of Dr. Tantillo's face lift patients choose to combine their procedure with other facial plastic surgery options such as Boston area eyelid surgery, neck lift or brow lift for a more complete facial rejuvenation. Injectable fillers can also enhance face lift results by restoring skin volume.

During your consultation, Dr. Tantillo will work with you to determine the right combination of procedures to best achieve the look you desire.

Who is a Candidate for a Face Lift in Boston?

You might be a good candidate for a face lift if you:

  • Are a healthy adult in your 40's to 60's
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Have a well-defined bone structure

More and more people are realizing the benefits of a face lift. In fact, in recent years about 100,000 people each year have chosen face lift procedures.

Recovery & Results

For the first few days after your face lift in Boston, you will need to rest with your head elevated to minimize swelling and bruising. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, including returning to work, within 10 to 14 days after your surgery. It is normal for bruising and skin discoloration to persist for 4 to 6 weeks, but this can be concealed with makeup.

When they have realistic expectations, Dr. Tantillo's patients are usually quite pleased with the improvements from their Boston face lift plastic surgery. This procedure can't completely erase the signs of aging, but it can help you look naturally attractive for your age. Your rested and rejuvenated facial appearance can enhance your self-confidence, as well as your self-esteem.
