When you undergo a cosmetic procedure like facelift surgery, you want to know it’s a worthwhile investment that you can enjoy for years to come. Many patients who visit our practice with hopes of taking years off their face often inquire about how long they can expect their results from a facelift to last. To understand the answer to this question, there are a number of factors with which you must first be familiar.
First and foremost, it is important to remember that even after facelift surgery, you will still continue to age. However, you can expect to age at a more graceful rate and postpone the appearance of lines and wrinkles. In general, there are four major factors that will affect the longevity of your results:
- Quality of facial skin prior to your procedure
- How you take care of your skin after
- Expertise of the plastic surgeon
- Specific facelift procedure you undergo
With this in mind, Dr. Hilinski has seen patients who have undergone the full facelift enjoy their rejuvenated results for up to 10 years or more. However, this will ultimately vary based on each case.
