How Long Does a Facelift Last?

Longevity of a Facelift

While all patients can expect drastic changes to their appearance following a facelift surgery, the results and longevity of every procedure will vary. With the time and money invested in the procedure, it’s only natural for patients to want their new youthful looks to last as long as possible. If you’re wondering how long a standard facelift surgery actually lasts, Artiste Plastic Surgery discusses more below: 

How Long Do Facelifts Last?

The longevity of facelifts can vary depending on the procedure. An endoscopic mid-face lift, or anti-gravity lift, can last up to ten years. However, this procedure only treats the area between the lower eyelids and the mouth.

A mini lift rejuvenates the lower area of the face and the neck to create a more youthful appearance. That said, this procedure only focuses on the laxity of the skin and not the muscles involved, resulting in a much shorter longevity.

A deep plane facelift in Sydney lasts the longest among all types of facelifts, lasting up to 12 years. This procedure is the “gold standard” among facelifts, as it repositions soft tissues to lift the entire face  rather than only dealing with the superficial layers of the skin.

Factors That Affect the Longevity of a Facelift

  • Lifestyle – Your diet, skin care regimen and exercise routine can have a significant effect on the results and longevity of your facelift procedure. Patients that lead a healthy lifestyle will likely enjoy their rejuvenated appearance for a longer period of time compared to others that do not.
  • Additional Procedures – Combining cosmetic surgery facelift with other procedures is quite common and is often done to maximise the effects of the surgery. Common treatments done with a facelift include blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, brow lifts and neck lifts. Since the ageing process leads to a loss of volume all over the face, combining your facelift with other similar procedures will dramatically improve the results and its longevity.

The skill and experience of your chosen surgeon plays a huge role in how long your facelift’s results last so it’s important to work with an experienced professional who specialises in facelift surgery.
