Whether it has been months or years since you had a facelift, there are many reasons why you may be considering a revision facelift. A facelift is designed to restore a youthful appearance and delay the signs of aging in the face. However, it cannot prevent future aging altogether. Often with more time and exposure to the sun, you may notice sagging under the eyes or in the jawline since your first facelift. This is a natural aging process, especially as the facial fatty tissue diminishes over time.
It is also quite possible that the first facelift was performed with outdated techniques or by an inexperienced surgeon. In such cases, you may feel that your facelift looks unnatural or “over done.” This is common for patients who underwent a facelift using techniques that only lifted and tightened the skin instead of the deeper layers of muscles and tissues of the face that is used in a deep plane or SMAS lift approach.
A facelift revision can restore the facelift results you once had or repair a poor facelift that you wish you never had. The goal of a facelift revision should be to rejuvenate your appearance while also staying true to the natural shape of your face. Variations in technique and incision sites vary in facelift revision surgery, as correcting another surgeon’s work may require skilled and creative methods that are not always traditional.
If you are experiencing the following after your first facelift, you may be a candidate for facelift revision surgery:
- Unnatural results that look pulled or over done
- Skin sagging under the jawline and in the mid-face region
- Loss of fat in the upper cheeks, under eyes, around the lips or in the mouth area
- Creases around the mouth and lower eyelids
- Excess fat in the neck and jowls
