Facelift surgery has remained one of the most popular cosmetic enhancement procedures in America for decades. A facelift can tighten underlying facial muscles, smooth away signs of age, reduce the appearance of jowls, and ultimately take years off your appearance with beautiful, natural-looking results. But how long will those results last?
Many individuals experience the results of facelift surgery from 7 to 10 years after the procedure. With that in mind, it’s important to remember that the exact length of results varies from patient to patient, and is dependent on a number of factors, including:
- The specific facelift technique utilized in your surgery (i.e. full facelift, mini facelift, or MACS Lift)
- Your present age and the elasticity of your skin
- Lifestyle habits after treatment
- Dietary habits after treatment
- Skin care regimen
Many people enjoy longer-lasting results from full facelift procedures that lift and tighten both the underlying muscles and the facial skin. Also, patients who protect their skin from the sun, avoid smoking, maintain a healthy diet, and utilize proper skin care products can dramatically increase the chances their facelift results will last for many years to come. Non-surgical options such as cosmetic injectables can also be helpful with touching up the results from time to time and lengthening the effects.
