Is a facelift a permanent procedure or do I need to go through the procedure again?
While the results of a facelift are permanent, the facial structure will continue to age as time passes. How long it takes before an individual who has had a face lift wishes to have another surgical procedure varies from one person to the next and depends upon the initial condition of the skin, weight fluctuations, past and future sun exposure, general nutritional status and one’s genetics. Whether or not one has injectable treatments following a facelift can also impact upon the longevity of the surgical results. I believe that injectable treatments can significantly prolong the results achieved by facial rejuvenation surgery and recommend continued, judicious use of injectable treatments to all patients after facial rejuvenation surgery.
