What is Revision Facelift surgery?
Revision facelift surgery refers to a facelift procedure that is performed on a patient with history of prior facelift. A patient may be a candidate for revision facelift if they are seeking corrective surgery to improve a new or persistent deformity after fully healing from recent surgery or repeat surgery several years after an initial facelift for additional facial rejuvenation. Although facelift surgery delivers permanent results, the surgical results may only last for several years out and then start to fade since the face and neck continue to age over time. Revision facelift surgery is typically much more challenging compared to primary facelift given that the facial anatomy is altered with scar tissue present. The risks of bleeding and poor healing as well as needed surgical time may be higher with revision surgery.

What type of patient is the ideal candidate for Revision Facelift?
The ideal surgical patient for revision facelift is a healthy non-smoking individual who has no remarkable medical or surgical history, does not take blood-thinning medications, and demonstrates strong bony facial features, normal hyoid position, and good skin elasticity. They should demonstrate new or persistent facial deformities from recent surgery or recurrent facial aging issues years out from prior surgery and should be at minimum 6-12 months well-healed from prior surgery. Good candidates for revision facelift need to demonstrate healthy facial skin and realistic expectations regarding revision surgery goals and outcome and should be committed to long term follow-up to ensure the best surgical results.
