What is a revision facelift?

A revision facelift, also known as a secondary facelift, is a procedure that is designed to revise or correct a primary facelift surgery. In order for this surgery to successfully improve upon or correct the original, it must be carried out by a secondary facelift specialist. Dr. Weber is a master of his craft and can help all patients achieve their facial aesthetic goals.

A revision facelift brings patients closer to what they originally envisioned for their facial rejuvenation process. The procedure gives patients a more natural, balanced appearance that is refreshed and aesthetically appealing.

What is the purpose of a revision facelift?

There are various reasons that may drive a person to seek out a revision facelift procedure. Some of them include:

  • Being unhappy or dissatisfied with the outcome of the initial facelift
  • The patient has advanced in the aging process and needs a follow-up
  • The primary facelift was carried out by an inexperienced or unskilled surgeon, leaving the patient with displeasing results
  • The results of the initial facelift look unnatural or unbalanced
  • The patient feels that the procedure went too far, and they no longer look like themselves
  • The patient feels that the primary facelift didn’t address their concerns about signs of aging

What are the benefits of a revision facelift?

A revision facelift procedure provides patients with many benefits. While the patient might feel jaded from their initial facelift procedure, receiving care from a surgeon with a high level of experience and skill can elicit results that will restore their faith in the advent of cosmetology.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Creating more harmony between facial features
  • Improving the face’s overall aesthetic
  • Taking years off of the patient’s face
  • Effectively reverses aesthetically unpleasing changes that were made in the primary facelift procedure
  • Gives patients newfound confidence in their appearance

Who is a candidate for a revision facelift?

Patients who have already undergone either a full facelift or mini facelift and would like to enhance or correct the results are the ideal candidates for this procedure. Beyond that, they should meet the following criteria:

  • Be of sound body and mind with no current infections or other medical issues affecting the body
  • Able to stop blood thinning medications including Aspirin and Ibuprofen
  • Be non-smokers
  • Have unwanted scar tissue or any unnatural-looking results from the primary facelift
  • In need of a touch-up to correct an error from the previous procedure
  • The results from the initial procedure have faded away over time
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure

What does the procedure entail?

This procedure is considered highly variable, due to the fact that every patient seeking changes to a previous facelift procedure tends to have unique issues. During the consultation process, a full assessment of the patient’s current facial condition is carried out to determine what is the best approach to achieving their desired look.

The surgical details of the original facelift must be properly understood in order to plan the revision process. The patient’s current goals, a full evaluation of the quality of their facial skin, and an assessment of the incisions from the primary surgery must also be performed before moving forward. Once all of this information is attained, the revision procedure can be curated.

What is the recovery period like?

The recovery from a revision facelift procedure is similar to that of the original surgery, and patients will be given similar post-procedural instructions to ensure a healthy recovery. On average, this procedure requires two weeks of recovery time. During this period, patients may notice some swelling, soreness, and mild pain in the face. The swelling is at its worst during the first 24-48 hours and will dissipate after a few weeks, once the scar tissue has healed.

Revision Facelift FAQs

How much does a revision facelift cost?

As with any procedure, the cost of a revision facelift will vary depending on the region in which it is performed and the expertise of the doctor. It can range anywhere from $18,000 to more than $100,000.

How soon can I get a revision facelift after my primary operation?

Revision facelift procedures are not supposed to be performed within 12 months of the primary procedure. It is recommended that patients wait at least a year before going under the knife again. Waiting this amount of time gives the body a chance to heal from the initial treatment. The final result of the primary treatment can’t be properly assessed until at least a year has passed.
