A facelift procedure provides long-lasting results. Unlike non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, a facelift restores youthful facial qualities by working beneath the skin, tightening loose skin and fat.
There is not a guaranteed or predetermined amount of time that your results will last. Rather, we can give you an idea of how long your results may continue to be satisfactory based on studies and our own patients’ stories. Generally, you can expect a surgical facelift to provide rejuvenating results for several years. The signs of aging begin to appear again because a facelift cannot stop factors that age your skin.
The longevity of your facelift results can be affected by:
- Sun exposure
- Environmental factors
By protecting your skin from the sun and other harm, you can keep your skin looking fresh and more youthful. Sunlight and smoking are especially likely to cause skin wrinkles and sagging.
A facelift provides effective, stunning facial rejuvenation results. Most of our patients continue to be happy with their results for many years. Touch-up treatments can be performed when the signs of aging return.
