Not every cosmetic procedure provides your ideal result, and sometimes a second surgery is needed to correct or improve the original outcome. If you have previously had a facelift and aren’t happy with your results, you may be a candidate for a revision procedure.
Although plastic surgery results can last for decades or longer, there are factors that can diminish or alter the results much sooner. A significant loss in body weight, for example, can affect the results of your previous facelift and leave you dissatisfied with your appearance. In this situation, a revision facelift may be an ideal solution to adjust contours and ensure they complement your new slimmer look.
Some facelifts just aren’t successful and surgeon error isn’t always to blame. Improper postoperative care and other factors can affect the integrity of the results, but sometimes a revision procedure can help. If you feel that your first facelift didn’t do enough to address and improve your areas of concern, you may want to consider the possibility of a second procedure to give the look you were hoping to achieve the first time around.
Life is too short to live dissatisfied with the results of a facelift. If you are unhappy with your previous procedure and are ready to put your best face forward, visit with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facelifts to see how a revision facelift can enhance your first surgery and give you a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
