Facelift surgery is one of the most reliable options available for reversing the effects of aging. When the facial skin and tissue begin to sag in the lower face, the face begins to look heavy and tired. Facelift surgery can take up to 10-15 years or more off your appearance, reducing loose skin, lines and firming the neck, jawline and jowls. One of the most common questions our patients ask Dr. Eric Cerrati is how long their facelift will last.
There are several factors that can impact how long the results of your facelift will last. Your age, gender, lifestyle, genetics and skin maintenance can all affect facelift longevity. However, the techniques used to perform your facelift play a significant role. Choosing an experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in facelift surgery can help extend your results.
Dr. Cerrati customizes facelift surgery for each patient based on their particular aging concerns. By combining advanced techniques for lifting and firming the facial skin and tissue with options like fat transfers, he can create stunning results that look natural and highlight your best features. Many patients can enjoy a more youthful appearance from their facelift for a decade or more.
Extending the Lifespan of Your Facelift
Dr. Cerrati can provide phenomenal outcomes for his facelift patients by using innovative surgical methods to rejuvenate the facial tissues. However, aging cannot be stopped, and the skin and tissue do continue to lose elasticity. There are cosmetic treatments that can be used to stimulate collagen in the skin and reduce the formation of lines and wrinkles. Diet, skincare routine, sun protection and other factors can also help you maintain your facelift results longer.
To retain the results of your facelift, secondary or revision facelift surgery may be needed. Many individuals receive facelift touch-ups to retain a more youthful appearance, as well as other lift procedures like brow, eye or neck lifts.
Facelift surgery performed by a highly qualified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Eric Cerrati can take a decade or more from your facial appearance. By following Dr. Cerrati’s post-surgery instructions, you can enjoy your more youthful appearance for many years. Contact our office in Salt Lake City, UT to schedule a facelift consultation.
