Revision Facelift in Phoenix, AZ

A revision facelift is ideal for the person who has had a facelift but still needs some additional attention. The treatment allows patients to enhance their appearance even more by revitalizing the face and creating a more youthful appearance. Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, board-certified ENT and facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers revision facelifts to patients in the Scottsdale, Phoenix, Paradise Valley and the surrounding areas of Arizona.

What is a Revision Facelift?

For some patients, issues with a prior facelift can leave them feeling insecure, induce anxiety and cause frustration. Patients often undergo a facelift to improve the look of the face by creating a more youthful appearance. However, not all facelifts deliver desired results. Patients may experience results that leave their faces looking asymmetrical, make the facelift appear obvious or create a look they simply do not like. Patients who undergo a bad facelift procedure often feel like their bad investment caused them to look worse. Being unhappy about the results of a facelift procedure can cause a patient to endure a lot of unwanted stress.

People who have undergone a bad facelift may consider a surgical procedure to correct the results. A revision facelift is a cosmetic produced that aims to change the results of the prior facelift. The most common reason given for undergoing a revision facelift is that patients are left looking like they had a facelift. They are left with a face that makes them look permanently shocked or constantly surprised, a departure from anything that may seem natural. When this happens, it seems like people are forced to choose between dealing with the signs of aging or looking fake. People no longer have to choose between correcting their jowls and looking perpetually surprised. A revision facelift allows patients to have a natural, youthful appearance without the unwanted effects of past facelifts.

A revision facelift is another version of a traditional facelift, but it involves the complexities of correcting and enhancing previous work. When making a decision to undergo a revision facelift, it is important that patients select a surgeon who is knowledgeable and experienced. The surgeon needs to be able to tackle to new aesthetic goals along with the scar tissue that remains from the previous facelift. When performed by a qualified surgeon, a revision facelift will create a natural, younger-looking appearance.

Problems that Create a Need for Revision Facelift Procedures

The majority of patients use a facelift to correct the sagging of the lower face. A facelift that corrects the center of the face, such as the upper cheeks and eyelids, involves the tightening and pulling that can cause a person to look unnatural. It is possible for some facial features to become asymmetrical and distorted during the procedure. In situations where a facelift delivers undesired results, a revision facelift restores a person’s natural appearance while helping them look younger.

Why Consider a Revision Facelift?

There are many benefits to having a revision facelift. The procedure is recommended for patients who have the following concerns:

  • “I had a facelift, but now I look unnatural.”
  • “My facelift is unsatisfactory.”
  • “I am unhappy with the scarring from a previous procedure.”
  • “I had a facelift a few years ago, but am starting to see signs of aging.”

Revision Facelift Candidates

While the revision facelift is a safe procedure, the procedure is not for everyone. This procedure is ideal for patients who have had a facelift and are seeing new signs of aging. It is recommended that this procedure occurs five to seven years after the previous facelift. The procedure acts as a supplemental procedure to enhance previous results.

Revision facelifts can also benefit people who have had a more recent facelift. Some people had a procedure to correct part of the face, without changing other features. In this situation, a portion of the face may look older than the other. A revision facelift helps the face have an even-looking appearance.

An ideal candidate is also the person who wants to fix the results of a previous facelift because they look artificial. A revision facelift can create a more natural look for the person whose initial procedure makes them look like they had a facelift. At Arizona Facial Plastics, P.C., our skilled surgeon can manipulate your features to help you look like a younger version of yourself.

How Is a Revision Facelift Performed?

Dr. Taghizadeh starts the revision facelift procedure by administering general anesthesia so that the patient feels minimal discomfort during the surgery. In most cases, he will use the same incision scars from the previous facelift. There are a few reasons to do so. First, utilizing incisions within the scar tissue that resulted from the previous facelift can make the revision procedure less invasive for the patient. There is less reduced swelling and bleeding during the post-operative phase. In addition, by reopening the incision scars from the first facelift surgery, Dr. Taghizadeh is better able to mobilize deeper tissues, including those that were untouched in the previous operation.

After identifying and making an incision at the proper locations, Dr. Taghizadeh will continue the revision facelift by removing additional excess fat. He will also reposition and tighten muscles as necessary to smooth skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Finally, the doctor will suture the incision by using techniques to hide them and leave no visible scarring.

Revision Facelift Recovery

For 48 to 72 hours after undergoing a revision facelift procedure, it’s important to preserve the dressings that were applied by Dr. Taghizadeh and his team as part of the surgery. A follow-up visit to our offices will be necessary within two to three days after the procedure so that the dressings can be removed. The doctor will also review the revision facelift results and ensure that you are healing properly. In addition, bi-weekly return visits are necessary for six weeks following the surgery to monitor the recovery process.
