How Long Does A Facelift Last?

By: Dr. Russell W. Kridel



Facelift is one of the most common facial rejuvenation procedures. It provides the most remarkable and long-lasting improvement in your appearance, particularly for those with significant sagging at the jawline, loose neck skin, as well as sagging in the cheek area. One of the most common questions patients ask is --- How long does a facelift last? There is not one single answer to this question due to a number of factors, including your health, age, and underlying anatomy at the time of the surgery, as well as how well you take care of yourself after the surgery. A facelift resets the aging clock by about 10 to 15 years. You will continue to age, but you have time shifted the aging conveyor belt. For some patients, they are happy with that amount of shift throughout their future years, while others will have another surgery in ten or fifteen years.

The younger you are the longer you can expect facelift results to last. If you are older at the time of facelift surgery, you will experience more dramatic improvement, but you can not expect the surgery to wipe out the aging process entirely. You want your facelift to look natural.
