For individuals who wish to reduce the signs of aging on their face and neck, a facelift (rhytidectomy) may be ideal. Facelifts can improve facial sagging, tighten the skin, and also lift the skin under the chin and in the neck to some extent.
The treatment can also help to reduce deep creases below the lower eyelids and deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth. Good candidates for facelifts include non-smokers who are healthy, do not have any medical conditions that could impair healing, and people who have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about treatment. Facelifts can renew confidence and boost self-esteem, providing a younger, refreshed appearance.
A study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery shows 75 percent of patients look younger than they did before facelift surgery, more than five years after the procedure. A facelift (rhytidectomy) can reduce the signs of aging in the face and neck. These signs include facial sagging, creases below the lower eyelids, jowls, and submental fullness (also called “double chin”).
Heredity, gravity, stress, and environmental conditions can lead to the loss of youthful facial contours. Regardless of the reason, a well-respected plastic surgeon at DermASAP performs facelift surgery to restore youthful contours, tighten the facial skin, and help improve self-confidence. Dr. Genevieve Broderick is highly sought after by patients in Cape Cod and beyond for her caring nature and expertise in plastic and cosmetic surgery.
At the facelift consultation, it is important for patients to come prepared to discuss their surgical goals. Dr. Broderick will ask about their medical conditions, drug allergies, and medical treatments. Current medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements are taken should be discussed as well. It is also critical to discuss any alcohol, tobacco, or drug use.

Dr. Broderick will evaluate patients’ general health status and pre-existing health conditions. She will examine and measure their faces and take photographs. All of the facelift options will be discussed before treatment plans are tailored to meet their needs. In preparing for a facelift, patients may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation.
