When skin loses its elasticity and causes sagging, it can make you look older and tired. That is why facelifts are a popular cosmetic surgery; they help rejuvenate the face and give you a more youthful appearance. However, not all facelifts produce the desired result. In some cases, a facelift revision is necessary to correct problems.

Five Situations When a Facelift Revision is Absolutely Necessary

  1. Unsatisfactory Results: The primary reason for a facelift revision is unsatisfactory results. Sometimes the initial facelift surgery does not achieve the desired outcome. This could be due to poor surgical technique, lack of experience of the surgeon or unrealistic patient expectations. A revision facelift can correct the initial mistakes and provide a more satisfactory result.
  2. Complications: Facelift surgery is a complex surgical procedure, and there is always a risk of complications. While rare, some complications may require revision surgery. For example, if a hematoma (a blood collection under the skin) occurs after surgery, it may need to be surgically drained. If a nerve is damaged during surgery, it may need to be repaired.
  3. Natural Aging Process: Even after a successful facelift, the natural aging process continues, and the skin may start to sag again. In such cases, a facelift revision may be necessary to maintain the initial results. A revision facelift can address the new changes and provide a refreshed look.
  4. Weight Loss: Significant weight loss can cause the skin to sag, and a facelift may be necessary to address this issue. In addition, a revision may be required to maintain the initial results if a patient loses significant weight after their initial facelift.
  5. Botched Surgery: Unfortunately, not all facelift surgeries are successful. If a patient has had a botched facelift, revision surgery is essential to correct the problems. This may include correcting uneven results, removing excess skin or addressing any other issues caused by the initial surgery.

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!
