Providing Facelift Surgery near Manchester, New Hampshire

The term “facelift” is a misnomer, because the operation actually tightens the cheeks and neck, rather than the entire face.

As we age, a number of things happen in differing amounts and at different rates in each of us. How fast these aging changes appear depend upon heredity, sun exposure, lifestyle, diet, smoking, and skin care, and include: sagging of the cheek fat from the mid-cheek toward the upper lip, producing skin adjacent to the upper lip; relaxation of cheek skin producing “jowls” along the jawline just below the corners of the mouth; the development of “marionette lines,” or vertical lines running from the corners of the mouth toward the jawline, produced by a ligament that attaches the skin to the underlying bone; increasing laxity of the neck skin; accumulation of fat in the front of the neck; and the appearance of ridges or “bands” that run from beneath the chin toward the collar bones, one on each side of the windpipe. Each of these aging changes needs to be diagnosed and treated individually and in varying amounts. Some patients need all of them treated; some, only a few. That is why facelift surgery at our New Hampshire practice, between Manchester and the Massachusetts border, is tailored to the individual patient, addressing the specific problems that he or she is concerned with.

Additional Questions about Facelift Surgery

The following are some of the frequently asked questions we receive regarding facelift surgery at our New Hampshire practice, located between Manchester and Massachusetts in Nashua.

“I have seen patients who look like they have been caught in a wind tunnel, with a very severe, tightly stretched facial appearance. Is this to be expected after a facelift?”
“Do I have to do the whole thing (brow, cheeks, and neck)?”
“I have heard that you can treat the neck alone. How do you feel about that?”
“What ancillary procedures can be performed in addition to the facelift?”


When I first came to Nashua more than 36 years ago, the only thing that most physicians knew about plastic surgeons was that they performed facelifts. Even though the specialty covers many other kinds of surgery, facelifting is still an important part, and for the right patient, and in one of its many forms, can eliminate many of the unflattering changes that occur with aging without producing artificial or unnatural appearances.

Like any operation, facelifting is real surgery, and has possible, although infrequent, potential for complications (infection, unusual bleeding, nerve injury, or poor scarring) and these are discussed in detail at the time of your consultation. That is why a consultation is so important. It allows you and I to get to know each other, and it gives me an opportunity to find out what bothers you, so that the solution can be customized to produce the maximal improvement and achieve as many of your goals as possible, safely and in a manner that respects your priorities.
