As someone interested in rejuvenating the appearance of your face, you may want to know how long the results of a facelift last. A facelift is one of the most effective ways to restore youthfulness to your face. It tightens sagging, inelastic skin and muscles, thereby softening deep facial folds and restoring a defined facial contour.
Your facelift results don't last for any predetermined amount of time. That being said, most people report a continued youthful effect for several years or longer. The longevity of your results may be influenced by:
- Skin quality
- Unprotected sun exposure
Even with a facelift, it's important to care for your skin. Moisturizer can keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Sun protection is very important. Damaging UV rays not only increase your risk for skin cancer, they age your skin and contribute to the formation of wrinkles and sagging.
If you are wondering if a facelift is the right choice for you, we encourage you to schedule a one-on-one consultation with experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman. He can describe all of your options for facial rejuvenation and what you can expect from each option
