How Long Does A Facelift Last?
Unfortunately, aging can cause your skin to droop again over time. Although facelift results are not permanent, this cosmetic procedure is long-lasting and can keep you looking younger for years to come. Moreover, there is plenty you can do to extend your facelift results.
Some of the things you can do to make your facelift results last longer include protecting your skin from the sun and moisturizing your skin daily. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can also boost the results of your rhytidectomy, making you look and feel more confident.
How Does Facelift Surgery Work?
With 26 years of experience, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Stein in Raleigh, NC, first thoroughly examines the patient’s face and creates a customized plan that will best work for the patient. Dr. Stein performs a facelift procedure by making discreet incisions around the patient’s ears or in their hairline while pulling back and removing excess skin on the face to give them a more youthful appearance.
Finally, he closes your incisions, leaving you with visible results shortly after surgery. Dr. Stein uses his most polished facelift techniques to reduce discomfort and any noticeable scarring and provides you with a faster recovery time. However, you should be able to see full results within six months.
