revision facelift surgery

Are you unhappy with the results of your facelift surgery? Do you think it was “botched”. Or have the results of your facelift diminished to the point that you need a touch-up?

It can be disappointing to undergo surgery for facial aging and not get the results you desire. And even if you were satisfied with your original facelift, it does not stop the process of aging. 

And so, you might want to consider Revision Facelift Surgery. 

What is Revision Facelift Surgery?

Facelift revision is a procedure that corrects and improves the results of a poorly performed, or under-performed, original facelift. It is also recommended for patients who are reasonably satisfied with their first facelift and want to retain their youthful appearance. 

Sometimes people look “strange” or “operated on” after surgery and actually need MORE surgery in order to look like they have had LESS surgery (in other words, to look more natural). Most patients do not want to change their fundamental appearance; they want to look like themselves but better and crisper.

What types of problems will a Revision Facelift improve?

  • -The cheeks were improved but the neck was ignored or not sufficiently improved.
  • -The jowls are still present
  • -There are visible scars and or distorted ears or sideburn.
  • -The face looks “strange” due to the way the skin was redraped.
  • -The face was pulled tighter but areas of fat atrophy were not treated leaving the face looking hollow and haggard.
  • -The face just got older.

Is a revision facelift as big a procedure as the original procedure?

Usually not. Usually the old incisions can be used or modified so there are no new scars or the scars are in a better place. Because the surgical dissection has already been done, the second procedure is usually faster and easier, with a shorter recovery. Of course this depends on what has to be done but is generally the case.

What if my face just got older after the first facelift?

Facelifts usually last about 10 years. Now, this depends on the age of the patient when the first facelift was done, the skin type, amount of sun damage etc., but is a good guideline. Patients who had their first procedure at age 40 almost always have another at 45-48. Patients who have their first facelift at 75, may or may not have another.
