What can be addressed with a surgical facelift?

Dr. Samuel Lin and the team at Boston Plastic Surgery are excited to offer patients in the area solutions for the face and body. Adult men and women who want to address sagging skin and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles may find that a surgical option is best. Outside of Botox injections, which can help with dynamic wrinkles and folds on the face, plastic surgery is suitable for many patients who want noticeable results.

How does the facelift work?

The facelift is a surgical procedure that helps in tightening the skin on the face with skin removal. This is done with an incision that is hidden within the hairline or behind the ears. There are different types of facelifts, including a lower facelift, upper facelift, or full facelift. Dr. Samuel Lin will educate patients on the varieties of facelifts available and help patients decide which one is most appropriate for the results they desire.

Why might I need a facelift?

The face is one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. Collagen and elastin loss that naturally occurs around the age of thirty begins to result in the development of skin laxity. When the skin is loose, it is more susceptible to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. To address this, some patients turn to neuromodulators injections or dermal fillers to fill specific areas and smooth the appearance of the skin. However, this is not always effective in the later stages of aging where skin laxity becomes far more noticeable. At this point, a patient may consider a facelift to remove excess skin and smooth the appearance of the face for a more youthful appearance.
