Second Facelift: How Patients Achieve Excellent Results
The classic facelift procedure is only growing in popularity year after year as techniques improve natural-looking results. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that the number of patients choosing a second facelift is rising as well. Low complications and increased satisfaction with results mean that patients are more likely than ever to have a second facelift years after their initial procedure.
Why Do Patients Choose a Second Facelift?
The primary goal of a facelift is to help patients’ appearances reflect their inner energy and zest for life. Patients who choose advanced modern facelift techniques can achieve the smooth, youthful appearance they enjoyed in the past and improve their overall consequence.
However, facelift results are not permanent, and the aging process will gradually continue after healing is complete. On average, patients can expect to see their facelift results for about ten years before aging signs start to show again. This means that a patient who has a facelift in their 50s may choose to have a second facelift in their 60s or even 70s so they can achieve their youthful results once again.
Is a Second Facelift Safe?
As long as you are healthy enough for surgery, a facelift is a safe procedure. You should always choose a qualified, experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon to ensure that your surgery is safe and you achieve the results you want. Dr. Timothy Janiga was educated at top programs including the University of Michigan Ann Arbor’s prestigious Integrated Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery residency program and is now board-certified in plastic, cosmetic, and facial surgery. During a consultation, Dr. Janiga will review the aging signs you are concerned about and your overall health to determine whether a second facelift is a safe and suitable option for you.
How Can I Maintain My Facelift Results?
Not all patients who have a facelift will feel they need a second procedure eventually, especially if they take steps to maintain their results for as long as possible. Using high-quality, dermatologist-recommended skin care products will help you avoid aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines. It is especially important to use SPF 30+ daily to avoid damage from UV rays. Non-surgical procedures such as Botox or chemical peels are also good options to soften aging signs, helping to delay the need for a second surgery for as long as possible.
