I am often asked, “how long will my face lift last?” and it is a difficult question to answer as every case is different.
Most surgeons will say that a good lift will last 8 to 10 years, although, in most cases a face lift is a one time procedure and the vast majority of patients do not have further operations.
Good facial surgery can have the patient appearing 20 years younger and with time, they will maintain this youthful appearance.
It is important to understand that surgery can reverse the aging process, but not halt it altogether.
I often explain to my patients, that in the case of twins, where only one has had surgery, that person will always look significantly younger than their twin.
Maintenance is important in keeping the face looking younger. Good Skincare, regular microdermabrasion, botox and fillers, all will help prolong a youthful appearance.
I am happy to see patients who may be considering any of the facial surgery procedures. Call the office on 07 5531 3194 for further information.
