Sometimes, your facelift results don't heal as expected. Other times, it's been a while since your initial procedure and you'd like to touch up some areas as they age. Either way, what you need is a revision facelift.
Hillcrest Plastic Surgery specializes in a range of cosmetic procedures, including facelifts and revisions. Our in-house professionals bring knowledge and compassion to every procedure. We learn what you need and develop a plan to achieve it.
What Is a Facelift Revision?
A revision facelift is any facelift that occurs after the first one. Facelift revisions require an experienced doctor who understands the intricacies of the original procedure. At Hillcrest Plastic Surgery, you'll find that experience in our Medical Director and facelift expert, Dr. Kenrick Spence.
How Soon After My Facelift Can I Have a Revision?
After your first facelift, it can take a couple of months to fully heal, and even longer for you to see the benefits the procedure delivers. It can take upwards of a year for the facial tissue to soften and settle. Because of that, we recommend you wait at least a year before having a revision surgery. However, if you're positive you'll want a facelift revision surgery, you can meet with our surgeons about six months after your initial procedure to start planning.
Can Scars From a Previous Facelift Be Revised?
Absolutely! The human face is full of curves and folds to hide scars, and different facelifts have different scar designs. We'll examine your features closely and devise a way to adjust your scar so it hides in the natural planes of your face. In general, Dr. Spence prefers to make incisions around the ear and hairline, where, once healed, they become practically invisible.
Can A Deep Plane Facelift Be Revised?
Yes — but only with a surgeon experienced in deep plane techniques, like Dr. Spence. Deep plane facelifts tend to have a longer healing time due to the work done deep within your facial structure. You're likely to deal with more swelling, as well, so be prepared to be patient as you go on this revision journey.
Can Additions Be Added to My Revision Facelift?
Dr. Spence regularly combines facelifts with other cosmetic procedures. Getting multiple procedures at once means you can spend less time healing from them and more time living your life with the appearance you want. Some of the most common procedures we do in tandem with a facelift are:
- Fat grafting
- Brow and eye lifts
- Laser resurfacing
- Chemical peels
