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.

Eric is such a great doctor! He treated me as family and was very thorough and diligent. I was very nervous but he made me feel comfortable at all times especially when undertaking a 7 hour surgery. I flew in all the way from the East Coast to see him as I heard he was the best in his field. His staff is friendly and caring. You can tell he has a good heart. I recommend!

I am one month out from my procedure with Dr. Cerrati and could not be happier with my results. From my initial inquiry to today, both the doctor and the staff could not have been more helpful. Dr. Cerrati has a wonderful team that makes scheduling, payments, and follow up questions easy. The doctor himself is attentive, happy to answer questions and did a great job of listening to my concerns and ideas, while presenting his professional opinion in a respectful and helpful way. My recovery was a breeze, thanks to his careful techniques. At just one month, I am seeing a drastic improvement in both form and function. So thankful to have Dr. Cerrati based in my home of Utah, but I would have traveled across the country to see him!

Dr. Cerrati performed a facelift (w/ neck tightening), upper and lower blepharoplasty, and CO2 laser resurfacing for me in February 2021. I’m 3.5 months post op and the results have exceeded all my expectations; beyond what I ever could have imagined. I experienced minimal pain, swelling and bruising, after my 8 hour surgery and was ready to be seen in public in less than 10 days. Dr. Cerrati and his team are without question, second to none in their field. I have been treated with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, patience, kindness and unconditional support from the beginning of my journey to today. Any questions or concerns I have ever expressed have ALWAYS been given the utmost respect and Dr. Cerrati pays attention to every detail in his patient care. His artistic talent and surgical skills are remarkable. In my opinion, he is a truly gifted plastic surgeon. The best you’ll find in the industry. If you’re considering any facial plastics procedures, Dr. Cerrati, and his team, is the place to come, even if it means traveling to do so. Thank you so much for changing my life for the better and giving me back my self confidence that I was sure I’d lost forever.

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!
