Why So Many Facelifts?

People commonly hear of celebrities who had too many facelifts, but that doesn't mean this surgery can't be performed more than once and still produce beautiful results. At my plastic surgery practice in Orlando, I perform secondary facelift surgery as a safe and effective option for restoring a youthful appearance. If you're considering a second facelift, here are some helpful notes:

  • Natural-looking results depend on surgical technique. An article published in the March 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® concludes that success depends on a surgeon's adherence to the 5 R's of secondary facelift surgery: resect, release, refill, reshape, and redrape.
  • Timing is essential. The March article also found that most patients have a second facelift a decade after the initial procedure. This closely matches the trend at my practice, but candidacy depends on a range of factors and shouldn't be limited to time elapsed.
  • Revisionary facelifts are effective solutions for correcting unsatisfactory results. I perform revisionary facelifts when patients didn't achieve the desired results with another doctor. Simply put, plastic surgeons must possess extensive training and experience to perform revisionary procedures.

While a secondary facelift procedure can safely restore a youthful appearance, it's not always the right option. Find a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area who can accurately evaluate your candidacy.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spence twice now. I didn't hesitate to contact him when I was ready to move forward with my adominoplasty. It has been a long and, at times, rough recovery but Dr. Spence and his staff have been right by my side every step of the way.
