Boston Facelift Surgery
What can be done when heredity, the pull of gravity, aging and sun exposure start to loosen the skin on your face and neck? This is a problem most everyone will experience in their life as aging of the face is an inevitable process. Dr. Del Vecchio has worked with many patients in this situation to help fight the effects of aging and restore facial rejuvenation with his many facelift options. While a facelift in Boston can not stop the aging process, it can help give you a more youthful, fresh appearance.
During your visit to the office in Boston facelift procedures ranging from non-invasive “non surgical” lifts using Botox and fillers, to mini, to full facelifts are discussed. Dr Del Vecchio will analyze your particular face and customize a treatment plan that is in line with your goals and your expectations. The best candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations of what can be accomplished. Dr. Del Vecchio believes facelift candidates also have a face and neck that has begun to sag, but still has some skin elasticity and well defined bone structure. Most of Dr. Del Vecchio’s facelift patients are in the forty to sixty year old range although he has done facelift surgery on men and women in their thirties, and well into their eighties. The only way to know for certain if you are a good candidate for a facelift is to schedule a consult with Dr. Del Vecchio to understand your options.
Once coming to the office in Boston facelift patients should be candid about their expectations and medical history. Dr. Del Vecchio will evaluate the face and neck skin elasticity and bone structure during your facelift consultation. Based on your discussions and his evaluation, Dr. Del Vecchio can then determine which type of facelift is right for you. Prior to your consultation, make sure to review the Boston Facelift Before and After Photos to see prior patients and results achieved. If you see results which compare to what you hope to achieve, bring a picture to your consultation.
Should you decide to move forward with the surgery, Dr. Del Vecchio will explain the wide range of options which are available to you. Newer facelift techniques allow for a more natural appearance while minimizing the resulting scars which were a common result with older techniques. Based on your individual situation, Dr. Del Vecchio can perform a mini facelift, a MACs lift, a necklift or a deep plane facelift. These options are often combined with an eyelid surgery and/or a forehead lift to achieve total facial rejuvenation. Each of these options will be explained in detail during your private consultation with Dr. Del Vecchio.
The facelift procedure may be done on an outpatient basis or with a brief hospital stay depending on your individual situation. If you are interested in having your facial surgery in Boston, Dr. Del Vecchio can perform the surgery at Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary, a Harvard teaching hospital. If you are coming from the South Shore, Cape Cod and Rhode Island, Quincy Medical Center is available for your convenience. For facelift patients who are from the North Shore and New Hampshire, North Shore Medical Center is also available. Mini facelift in selected patients can be performed in the office procedure room using local anesthesia and mild sedation.
