How Long Do Results Last After Facelift Surgery?
One of the most appealing benefits of a facelift is the potential to reverse specific signs of facial aging. A facelift from our experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jess Prischmann, can help lift sagging jowls, reduce excess skin, and enhance the definition of your jawline for a more youthful appearance.
It’s important to know that no procedure can stop time completely. If you’re considering any type of facial rejuvenation, including facelift surgery, it’s important for you to understand how long the results will last and what you can do to enhance, extend, and maintain those effects for as long as possible.
Facelift surgery is designed to be long-lasting and can offer benefits for up to 8-10 years. Every surgeon can attest to the fact that each patient is unique, and some patients do better than others. Genetics and lifestyle factors, such as smoking or sun exposure, play an important role in determining how long your outcome will be effective. One of the most important factors is avoiding weight fluctuations. Other healthy habits, such as wearing sunscreen, eating a nutritious diet, and exercising regularly can keep your skin in top condition. There is no question that reducing daily stress can also help to keep wrinkles at bay.
Dr. Prischmann believes that non-surgical interventions can work synergistically with facelift surgery. She often outlines a treatment plan that includes treatments, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, dermal fillers, and laser skin resurfacing. Often, these treatments can address minor signs of facial aging like fine lines and uneven skin tone and texture without the need for long recovery periods or side effects.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Prischmann will be happy to discuss the range of time your facelift can be expected to last and offer suggestions on how to best maintain your results.
