Is a facelift right for you?

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as:

  • Sagging in the middle of your face
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or has disappeared
  • Loss of skin tone in the lower face that creates jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can give even a person of normal weight the appearance of a double chin

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), older people are seeking change through cosmetic surgery  – ages 35-50 made up 45 percent of the nearly 12 million surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed in early 2014, and those numbers continue to grow. Loss of volume and sinking and sagging skin are the biggest issues in the face over 50. Call Dr. Gilbert at 617-479-1492 to schedule a consultation to learn more. read more
