Do Facelift Results Last Forever?
3 Minute Read:
According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, over 16 million people underwent cosmetic procedures in 2019. 92 percent of them were females, mostly aged between 40 and 54 years. This trend has been on the rise over the years as people try to get closer to their cosmetic goals.
With advancements in technology, there are simple, safe, and effective procedures that can remarkably transform one’s appearance. Facelift surgeries are trendy procedures for those who want to retain a youthful and attractive facial appearance over the years.
How Long Does a Facelift Last?
When performed well, a facelift can last between ten and fifteen years. Satisfactory results can only be achieved when the procedure is carried out by a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Calabria. However, the surgery cannot stop the natural aging process, and as with most cosmetic procedures, the results may not last for long if you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle.
How Can I Get the Best Results From My Facelift?
Maintaining healthy skin can prolong the results of the cosmetic procedure. The skin, the largest organ in your body, needs proper nourishment and hydration to stay healthy. Eating healthy foods full of vitamins and minerals, remembering to drink at least two liters of water every day, and having a skincare routine is also critical. It is essential that you understand your skin type and needs and use products that nourish and keep it healthy.
Before your facelift surgery, your surgeon will focus on the individual characteristics of your facial anatomy, check your skin condition, examine your lifestyle choices, and advise on how to adopt a healthy lifestyle following the surgery. This helps to ensure that your transformative results stay that way for as long as possible.
Can I Use Facial Fillers After a Facelift?
Dermal fillers can help boost your facelift results by restoring lost volume and filling in the mild to moderate lines and wrinkles that reappear. If you are worried about fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, you may choose to get dermal fillers either immediately or years after your facelift. These are injected into the face to restore a fuller, more youthful look. They last anywhere from six to 18 months.
If you have had a facelift, and want to have a dermal filler, talk to your surgeon. He will not only examine the current condition of your face but also recommend a suitable product.
Why Were My Facelift Results Not Satisfactory?
When your surgeon does not take time to study your facial composition, the facelift results may not be satisfactory, or they may not last as long. Facelift revision with Dr. Calabria can improve on your initial results, whether they have simply faded or were not initially up to par.
