Five Skin Care Tips to Preserve your Facelift Results

A facelift can completely rejuvenate your facial appearance and allow you to turn back the clock and look as young as you feel. But after you have a facelift, how do you maintain those results? Let’s take a look at several ways you can keep up your facelift results.


What is a Facelift?

We offer many facelift options at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery but the most commonly performed is the Deep Plane Facelift by tightening the deeper facial structures and removing excess skin, creating the most natural and youthful appearance.

But if you’re looking for something less invasive, we also offer Dr. Sadati’s natural facelift, a SMAS lift technique which provides a wonder facial rejuvenation. Dr. Sadati use the “Triple C” SMAS Plication technique to apply uniform tension to the facial muscles, providing you with a smooth and natural look.

We also provide a liquid facelift, which uses dermal fillers to provide subtle results, and a mini facelift, which addresses specific areas of the face.

How Long Does a Facelift Last?

A Deep Plane Facelift effects can last 10-15 years, but the SMAS facelift typically last about 5-7 years. At that point, you can discuss with Dr. Sadati how you want to proceed and what step would be best to keep you looking as youthful as you feel.

How to Preserve a Facelift

To help preserve your facelift and keep you looking rejuvenated and younger for as long as possible, there are some skincare and lifestyle tips you can follow. They include:

Avoid Excess Sun Exposure

Whether you’ve had a facelift or not, avoiding excess sun exposure can help you maintain a youthful appearance. The sun’s UV rays can lead to wrinkles, sun damage, discoloration, and skin cancer. To keep up the results of your facelift, try to stay out of the sun as much as you can.

Practice a Quality Skin Care Regimen

Another way to maintain your youthful look after a facelift is with a quality skincare regimen. Regularly use a cleanser, exfoliate, and moisturize to keep a glowing, healthy, and brilliant complexion. At the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge, we can help you find the right skincare regimen for you.

Use Sunscreen Regularly

While applying sunscreen year-round is important no matter what, it can be vital when you’re looking to maintain the results of a facelift. By protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun, you’re limiting how much it can damage and age your skin. Try to incorporate sunscreen into your daily skincare routine.

Stay Hydrated

Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated are two essentials for anyone looking to preserve their facelift results and maintain healthy, firm, glowing skin. Additionally, plenty of water and a healthy diet can also help the healing process during your facelift recovery and ensure you get the results you’re looking for.

Check Out Nonsurgical Treatments

Many patients turn to nonsurgical treatments after a facelift to maintain their results. This can include dermal fillers, neuromodulators like Botox, laser treatments, facials, and chemical peels. At the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge, we offer a variety of non-surgical cosmetic treatments to help you stay looking your absolute best!
