Your face reveals your emotions, attitude, and heritage, but it does not have to reveal your age. You should look as young as you feel, and a facelift can help achieve that. After a prior facelift, you may need a revision surgery to correct issues from your prior surgery or the aging process.
When the results of a facelift fail to meet your expectations or have faded, a revision facelift can be performed. At That Face, our facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Sulyman-Scott, is a member of “the new generation of plastic surgeons”—medical professionals who use the most advanced surgical techniques to achieve long-lasting, natural-looking results in a revision. Beyond her impressive surgical skills, you will find working with her to be warm, friendly, and empowering.
Should I Get a Second Facelift Surgery? Why a Revision May be Necessary
Errors in Surgical Technique
Many patients have been disappointed to discover how quickly their results have faded—often occurring when a facelift is performed with the older, traditional approach in which only excess skin is removed and pulled tight.
Errors in the Initial Surgery
A revision facelift may be needed when the primary surgery produced an unsatisfactory appearance, such as the facial skin appearing tightly pulled and unnatural, red, raised scars, distortions, or unevenly placed ears. These issues can be addressed with a custom revision facelift.
Results of Surgery Have Faded
Over time, the results of a facelift can fade, as skin laxity increases, tissues thin, and subcutaneous fat diminishes.
Hollows Beneath Your Eyes
You may feel your face looks gaunt, in cases where a facelift was combined with an eyelid lift and the surgery was performed with older “cookie-cutter” techniques.
