A facelift can make you look refreshed, rejuvenated, and younger while leaving no trace of cosmetic work. Instead of transforming your facial appearance, it can reintroduce you to your younger self from 10 or 20 years ago. If you meet your friends and family after the recovery period, they’re likely to note how much younger you look without guessing your secret. Dr. Boustany specializes in highly personalized techniques for your facelift in Boston that address your unique concerns without revealing the source of your youthful beauty.
Dr. Boustany’s personalized facelift techniques
Dr. Boustany is a Harvard-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in the latest and safest facelift techniques. She performs this personalized procedure with the utmost precision and attention to detail. Instead of following a cookie-cutter template, she curates a treatment plan based on your unique facial anatomy and cosmetic expectations. The procedure generally involves removing excess fat and sagging skin, but Dr. Boustany favors subtle modifications that look natural, without the windblown or overly-taut look that most people fear.
A facelift can do the following:
- Lift facial skin and tissues
- Remove sagging skin from the jawline
- Soften the wrinkles, creases, and fine lines
- Tighten the underlying muscles
- Make your skin look taut and firm
- Provide a sculpted jawline
- Remove sagging jowls
- Remove excess fat deposits under the chin
- Remove excess skin from the upper neck
What happens after the facelift?
You should expect mild swelling and bruising for the first two weeks, following which the side effects will gradually dissipate. Dr. Boustany will prescribe medications with specific instructions to prevent infections, minimize discomfort, and ensure optimal healing. You must follow her instructions precisely. You should also keep your head elevated at all times, even while sleeping, and avoid sun exposure, heavy lifting, and strenuous activities for a few weeks. The entire recovery period should take around six weeks, but you can resume most of your daily activities in two weeks.
