Revision Facelift Surgery
The facelift can be a transforming procedure, turning back the hands of time and restoring a more youthful version of yourself. At Los Angeles Plastic Surgery, our highly skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. John Anastasatos, offers exceptional results for his facelift patients. This includes those who have had previous facelifts that were unsuccessful or need updating after time. We offer secondary or revision facelift surgery at our exceptional medical facility in Beverly Hills.
When things do not go as planned with the original facelift surgery, or simply more work needs to be done, the revision facelift can be effective. The timing varies depending on the patient and the problem that needs to be fixed. It is usually a good idea to wait about six months following the original operation to perform revisions. By then most of the swelling has gone away. Dr. Anastasatos utilizes the most advanced techniques to create natural results while addressing the concerns of the patient regarding their previous facelift procedure.
Second Facelift or Secondary Facelift
A secondary facelift or second facelift simply means the second or third facelift a person gets. The original facelift operation does not last forever because we continue to age. Therefore, people who are proactive may seek a second or third facelift to retain their youthful appearance.
The second facelift requires more skill and artistic talent than the first one. Usually, and unfortunately, most plastic surgeons during the first facelift pull too much or remove too much. Therefore, the second facelift is not about removing excess skin but about repositioning the tissues in such a way that it looks like a younger face. In some cases, volume has to be restored in the second facelift operation because as we age, volume is lost from the face. This can include combining a fat transfer or grafting with the procedure to replenish lost volume.
