Correct & Enhance the
Results Of Your Facelift

Revision facelift is a specialized procedure that addresses dissatisfaction or complications arising from a previous facelift. It targets concerns such as asymmetry, unnatural appearance, or signs of aging that were not adequately addressed in the initial surgery. This corrective approach involves a thorough assessment of the patient’s unique facial anatomy, previous surgical techniques, and desired outcomes to develop a customized plan.

During the revision facelift, Dr. Snider may need to address issues like scar tissue, skin laxity, or misplaced facial structures to achieve a more balanced and harmonious appearance. The techniques used for a revision facelift may include adjusting the underlying musculature, redistributing facial fat, and refining skin texture to restore a more youthful and natural look. Given the complexity of revision procedures, it’s essential to seek out a skilled, experienced, and compassionate plastic surgeon like Dr. Snider to minimize the risk of further complications.

Revision Facelift Treats:

  • Asymmetry resulting from a previous facelift
  • Unnatural or over-tightened appearance
  • Persistence or recurrence of aging signs
  • Scar revision or improvement
  • Dissatisfaction with previous surgical outcomes
  • Complications such as nerve damage or skin irregularities
  • Changes in facial anatomy over time

Revision Facelift: The Recovery Process

After a revision facelift, you can expect a recovery period during which your body heals and adjusts to the changes. Initially, you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications and proper care. It’s essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process. During the first week, you’ll likely need to rest and avoid strenuous activities.

You may also need to wear a supportive garment to aid in the healing process. As the weeks progress, swelling and bruising will gradually subside, revealing the final results of your procedure. However, it’s important to note that full recovery can take several weeks to months, depending on individual healing factors. Your surgeon will provide guidance on when you can resume normal activities and fully enjoy the rejuvenating effects of your revision facelift.

Reasons for Revision Facelift:

  • Unsatisfactory results from previous facelift
  • Changes in appearance due to aging
  • Complications arising from initial surgery
  • The desire for further refinement or improvement
  • Asymmetry or unevenness in facial features
  • Revision of previous surgical techniques

Revision Facelift FAQs

Who is the ideal candidate for a revision facelift?

An ideal candidate is someone who has undergone a previous facelift but is dissatisfied with the results or has experienced complications. However, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcome.

How is a revision facelift different from a primary facelift?

A revision facelift is more complex and tailored to address specific concerns or complications from a previous surgery. It may involve correcting asymmetry, revising scars, or refining the results achieved in the initial procedure.

Is revision facelift recovery longer than primary facelift recovery?

Recovery times can vary depending on individual factors and the extent of revision needed. In some cases, revision facelift recovery may be slightly longer due to the adjustments required.

Are the risks higher with revision facelift surgery?

While all surgeries carry some level of risk, revision facelifts may have slightly higher risks due to factors such as scar tissue and altered anatomy from previous procedures. However, Dr. Snider takes all possible measures to reduce risks and supports you through every stage of the recovery process to ensure optimal results.

Will a revision facelift completely erase all signs of aging?

While a revision facelift can improve the appearance of aging, it cannot stop the aging process. However, it can take a decade or more off your face and provide long-lasting rejuvenation.
