The facelift is one of the most well-known and iconic plastic surgery procedures in the world. Its name has even become synonymous with the improvement of the appearance of anything from a building to a company’s logo. Why? Because of all procedures, a facelift is one of the most effective in rejuvenating a person’s appearance for a look that is several years younger.

How Long Do The Results Of A Facelift Last?

The results of a facelift vary by patient depending on the extent of their procedure and the age at which it was performed. On average, many patients still notice results 10 years after their surgery. A 2012 study by the University of Toronto found that patients who underwent a facelift were perceived to look nearly six years younger when compared to their picture before surgery.

According to the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), a secondary facelift can help maintain a youthful appearance a full decade after a patient undergoes their initial procedure. It’s important to note that there were no complications associated with a second facelift.

When Is The Right Time For A Secondary Facelift in California?

The paper highlighted the experiences of 60 patients who had undergone a secondary facelift. The average age of the patients at the time of their initial facelift was 51 years and 60 at their second – an average of nine years of lasting results. Of these patients, 10 had a third facelift procedure an average of seven and a half years after their second.

Once the results of a previous facelift in California begin to fade, some patients choose to undergo additional facial surgeries to maintain a youthful appearance, such as a brow lift or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). These procedures can address other visible signs of aging as well. Combining facial surgeries is safe and can achieve an even younger appearance for patients.
