What is Revision Facelift?

Also known as a secondary facelift, a revision facelift is a surgical procedure that corrects or revises the results of a previous facelift. A revision facelift is an extremely precise and delicate procedure that must be done by a revision facelift expert. The ideal results of your revision facelift should provide you with the intended look of your previous facelift, if not an improvement of the intended look. After you receive a revision facelift, you should have a more natural-looking, rejuvenated, balanced look.

In what cases should you receive a revision facelift?

There are a few reasons why someone may choose to receive a revision facelift. If they are unsatisfied with the results of a previous facelift, they may wish to correct these results. They may have received a facelift from an inexperienced or poorly-trained surgeon, and the results were unbalanced and appeared unnatural. A revision facelift can correct this. Additionally, some people who have aged since their initial facelift may require an additional facelift to maintain their desired look.

What are some benefits of receiving a revision facelift?

A revision facelift can give you the desired results of your previous facelift or enhance and upgrade your previous results. Some of the benefits of receiving a revision facelift are as follows:

  • Restores balance to the face
  • Enhances facial features
  • Gives you a natural, younger-looking face
  • Corrects the unsatisfactory, disappointing, potentially-distracting results created by a previous facelift procedure
  • Improves confidence

What is the procedure for a revision facelift?

A revision facelift is performed under general anesthesia. Typically the incisions that were created in your previous facelift will be used, but this isn’t the case for every patient. The possibility of whether or not the previous incisions can be used depends on how the scars have healed. After the incisions are made, excess skin is removed, fat is relocated, and the muscles are tightened. The skin is closed and tightened with sutures. A revision facelift surgery is a delicate procedure that takes approximately three to five hours.

What is the recovery process of a revision facelift?

A revision facelift requires about two weeks of recovery time. During this two-week period, you may experience some mild pain, soreness, and swelling. You may need to take time off work during this time. Most of the swelling happens in the first two days. It is important to keep your head elevated throughout the day and night. This will help to reduce the swelling. The sutures that are used to keep your skin in place are removed around one week after your procedure.
