A Temecula revision facelift is a secondary facelift performed after one facelift has already been completed. The need for a revision facelift can vary based on patient needs, but it is often done because of natural aging concerns of the face. The first facelift only lasts for several years before the aging process takes over and skin and tissues begin to droop again. A facelift only makes an individual look younger; it does not stop the aging process. Most facelifts last an average of 10 years.
There could be other reasons for seeking a Temecula revision facelift. For example, some patients are unhappy with the results of the first facelift. They may still be seeing more sagging and excessive tissues than they are happy with or they may feel as if the facelift appears artificial because of skin that has been pulled too tight. If skin and tissues are pulled too tight, this could cause a poor look around the ears or into the hairline. Finally, some patients seek revision facelifts to address excessive scarring from the first procedure.
Besides the extraordinary skill it will take to perform this surgery, the procedure will proceed similarly to that of the first facelift. The patient will be under general anesthesia and will be asleep the entire time. The surgery itself will take at least a couple of hours depending on how much of the face needs to be addressed.
Following the surgery, the patient will be allowed to wake up in the surgery center. After determining that the patient is stable, registered nurses will send her home with post-procedure care instructions.
