How Does a Revision Facelift Work?
Revision facelifts try to use the previous surgery’s scars if possible to avoid making new ones. This procedure is challenging since the surgeon does not know how much scar tissue or other problems they may encounter. Always plan your revision facelift with a board-certified and experienced surgeon like Dr. Lanfranchi.
A revision facelift may involve different procedures depending on the person’s concerns. People return for a revision facelift for many reasons, including distortion of the hairline from poorly placed incisions as well as excess scar tissue from previous procedures. Correcting distoreted earlobes is also common. The surgeon needs all information about a person’s surgical and facial procedure history. Your surgeon will also need to know the date of your last surgery since you should wait at least 9-12 months for revision surgery.
Top 3 Benefits of a Revision Facelift
A revision facelift offers benefits such as improved confidence and freedom from worry over the original facelift results. Many people feel like this procedure restores the natural, lifted appearance they wanted the first time.
A More Natural Appearance
Some people seek revision surgery because their facelift has left them with an “unnatural” appearance, whether the skin has been tightened too much or uneven scarring has left visible problems with the hairline.
For some people, a facelift can result in facial discomfort or other problems. Some issues are cosmetic and some functional, but a revision facelift can help correct these problems and let people feel more comfortable and confident.
The Results You Hoped For
After surgery and long recovery, finding out a facelift didn’t achieve the desired result may be very upsetting for a patient. With a revision facelift, the results will look more like those the person expected to see.
