face lift


Does your face reflect your youthful energy and enthusiasm? Due to various factors, most beyond our control, our skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag as we age. Also, muscles lose their youthful, taut appearance, and unwanted fat deposits can appear. If you'd like to look as vibrant and youthful as you feel, consider facial plastic surgery by Boston area plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Pap.

Improvements from Face Lift

A face lift provides Boston area residents a refreshed, revitalized appearance. The classic candidates for a face lift are men and women, typically between the ages of 40 and 70. You might benefit from a face lift if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Sagging in the middle region of your face
  • Deep lines below your lower eyelids
  • Smile lines that extend along the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Loss of muscle tone in your lower face, creating jowls
  • Loose skin or excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw that create a double chin

In your initial consultation, Dr. Pap, a board-certified plastic surgeon, will ask you about your areas of dissatisfaction, will thoroughly explain your alternatives, and help you establish realistic expectations. Depending on your individual needs and goals, he might suggest combining your face lift with another procedure such as eyelid surgery or a non-surgical treatment such as BOTOX® Cosmetic to achieve optimal results.

What to Expect

Dr. Pap typically performs face lift surgery as an outpatient procedure in a hospital setting. He prefers to use general anesthesia so you will remain asleep during the entire procedure. After a face lift, you can expect to return to light activities within 10 to 14 days and resume your normal routine, including exercise, in 3 to 4 weeks. You must avoid sun exposure for several months following surgery to minimize the appearance of scars and help with healing.
