When Should I Consider a Revision Facelift?

Have you had a facelift but you’re unhappy with the outcome?  If your facelift didn’t yield the results you hoped for, perhaps you’re  thinking of getting a revision done.  But when should you consider a revision facelift?  

When Should I Consider a Revision Facelift?

What’s A Revision Facelift?

A revision facelift is a secondary facelift that is done to correct issues from a previous facelift or to refresh the results of an earlier procedure.  A revision facelift is a customized procedure that deals with the unique issues of the patient.  

When Should I Consider A Revision Facelift?

Patients are typically advised to wait at least 6 months after their original facelift before considering a revision.  It’s important to wait and not rush into another procedure,  because the full results of your facelift won’t be apparent for several months.  It typically takes about 6-9 months to see the final results of a facelift.  

When all the residual swelling has resolved and the structures are completely healed, the surgeon can properly evaluate your concerns and determine if a revision facelift is a good option for you.  

The results of a facelift last an average of 10 years, but after that time new signs of aging will start to appear, as the natural aging process continues.  Skin laxity and volume loss are the most common complaints.   A revision facelift may be done to improve facial contours and maintain a refreshed appearance.   

A revision facelift can be complex due to prior changes to the SMAS layer of the face and the presence of existing scars.  It’s therefore necessary to choose an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who performs revision facelifts regularly.
