There are many unique joys to getting older. However, sagging facial skin and visible aging aren't usually among them. 

A facelift can create a more youthful appearance while maintaining your unique features. 

Dr. Arnold S. Lee of AeLeeMD Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in Boston, MA, can tighten your skin with a natural-looking facelift.

What Is a Facelift?


A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to tighten, raise, and trim the excess skin along your face. It can leave you looking noticeably rejuvenated and restore your confidence.

Deciding Between Facelift Procedures

You're about to begin an exciting journey! Dr. Lee will be happy to discuss your options during a consultation at his Boston office. Until then, we'll explain the basic differences between our facelift procedures, so that you know where to begin.

Traditional Facelifts

Traditional facelifts address the lower two-thirds of the face. They may also be combined with other procedures, like neck lifts. A traditional facelift can create more impressive results than a mini facelift or other subtler procedures. 

While they do provide stunning results, traditional facelifts also require a longer recovery time than mini facelifts or other lifts. You will be placed under general anesthesia during a traditional facelift, so you will also need someone to bring you to and from your facelift surgery.

Midface Lifts and Lower Face Lifts

Dr. Lee also offers targeted lifts that address specific areas of the face. These procedures can mean a shorter recovery time compared to a traditional facelift. 

The midface lift targets the area from the eyes to the upper mouth, helping address crows' feet and making eyes appear less sunken. A lower face lift addresses hanging jowls and sagging below the mouth, restoring definition to the jawline. 

What Additional Procedures Can a Facelift Surgery Involve?

Combining a complementary procedure with a facelift surgery can provide even more stunning results. Dr. Lee offers several complementary treatments, including:

Eyelid Surgery

Neck Lifts

Brow Lifts

Where fillers and injectables cannot provide substantial results, a facelift may succeed.

How Can a Facelift Refine My Appearance?

A facelift procedure can dramatically refresh your appearance by:

Trimming Your Jowls

Removing Excess Facial Skin

Smoothing Saggy Under-Eye Skin

Slimming Double Chins

Tightening the Neck and Face

Restoring Facial Definition
