What Is a Revision Facelift?

A revision facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to correct or improve the results of a previous facelift surgery. Patients will choose to undergo a revision facelift for many different reasons, including:

  • Wanting the adjustments to be more drastic
  • Feeling that the results of the original facelift do not look natural enough
  • Feeling that the adjustments do not match what they were promised
  • The results of the original facelift changing over time
  • Having experienced some type of complication with their original facelift results
  • The results of the original facelift starting to wear off sooner than expected

What Should I Expect During the Surgery?

If you’re interested in a revision facelift in Phoenix, you can start the process by sitting down with Dr. Craft for a private consultation. You’ll be able to talk with the doctor about why you’re unhappy with your previous facelift results and the specific changes you’d like to have made. He’ll listen closely to your aesthetic goals for the procedure and use that information to create an effective treatment plan that will achieve your desired facial appearance.

Your revision facelift procedure will most likely be performed as an outpatient procedure. To begin, you’ll be administered either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Dr. Craft will then make small incisions, the locations of which will have been discussed during your consultation. He will then make adjustments to your facial skin, tissue, and/or muscles depending on the details of your treatment plan. The specifics of each revision facelift can vary depending on what exactly the patient wants to achieve with the procedure. Once Dr. Craft has successfully adjusted and secured your skin and tissue, he will close the incisions with sutures and apply bandages.

A revision facelift can take anywhere from two to five hours, depending on the extent of the surgery. You’ll need to remain for monitoring for a few hours after the procedure. After that, you can return home, but someone else will need to drive you.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

Following your revision facelift, Dr. Craft will give you thorough instructions for the recovery process to ensure that you heal properly and achieve the best possible results. You’ll likely experience swelling, bruising, and soreness, but those symptoms should gradually subside on their own. You can speed up this process by using a cold compress and sleeping with your head elevated.

You’ll need to rest for one to two weeks after your surgery before returning to your normal routine. During this time, you should regularly take light walks to keep your blood flowing. You should also wait at least four to six weeks before you participate in strenuous physical activity.
