How long will my facelift last for?
A facelift is not a permanent solution. No cosmetic procedure can stop the effects of time and ageing. Genetic factors and environmental factors such as sun exposure and smoking can also speed up the natural ageing process and reverse the effects of a facelift. However, the results achieved from facelift surgery are long-lasting.
This will also depend on the type of procedure you have, the technique used, and the quality of your facial tissue. The effects of a full facelift can remain for over a decade. This means that most patients only undergo one facelift in their lifetime. There are some precautions you can take to limit the effects of environmental factors. These include using sunscreen, wearing sunglasses and a hat when outside, moisturising regularly and staying healthy and hydrated.
