FACELIFT REVISION OR SECONDARY FACELIFT

Deep Plane Facelift

As a Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, Revision or Secondary Facelifts are amongst the most common procedures I perform. The most common type is for the person who has had previous Facelift surgery years ago. This person is now ready to have further facial rejuvenation. Any good Facelift technique tightens the underlying SMAS layer should last about 10 years. The patient will notice a gradual loosening of their neck and jawline at about that time. Most people will still look more youthful 10 years after their original Facelift than they did prior to their original Facelift.

Secondary Facelifts are often associated with less swelling and healing than the primary Facelift, provided the original surgeon was skillful. Most patients are extremely happy with their primary Facelift and therefore, when the rejuvenating effect begins to fade they decide to have a Secondary Facelift to achieve that same level of rejuvenation they originally enjoyed. I perform all secondary Facelifts by tightening the underlying SMAS layer and this allows for a natural rejuvenation.

In the plastic surgery world the term Revision refers to correcting previous work. As a Facelift expert, I see patients from all over the world who have had previous Facelifts that did not give them the results they were hoping for or left them with complications. These patients are hoping to correct their problems with a Revision Facelift. There are several common complications that I see from Facelifts that were not performed correctly. Some of the most common problems that I see are listed below:
