Patients come to our practice asking about revision facelifts in two scenarios. The first is most common. You had a facelift 10 to 15 years ago, and now you’ve noticed that you just don’t look as good as you used to. You want that youthful appearance back. It is probably time for a revision facelift. The second type of patient is the one who is almost immediately unhappy following their facelift. The result is not what you thought it would be, and you are wondering how soon you can get it fixed.
So, what are your options and when is it time to consider a revision facelift?
Your Successful Facelift Has Faded with Time
In most cases, a facelift will last over 10 years with great results. However, because of gravity and continued aging, you could find that some of the benefits of your facelift have faded. A revision facelift can improve those areas to restore your facelift to its original glory. Heavy jowls and neck laxity can reoccur several years after surgery. Drooping cheeks and issues with the mid-facial area can also be fairly common as your facelift ages. A revision facelift can put those areas back to their youthful position and have you feeling confident again.
Other patients require a revision facelift because of a poorly performed face or neck lift. Often these procedures cause an overly tight or stretched appearance that causes discomfort. A corrective facelift revision can reduce the scars, tightness, or distortions in your appearance. We generally recommend that a patient considers a revision facelift about 6 to 12 months after the initial lift. This gives you time to heal and for the swelling to go down so that the surgeon can determine the best course of action for the revision.
The result of a revision facelift is a more youthful and natural looking appearance that you can fall in love with.
