How Many Years Can a Facelift Take Off?
The facelift is easily one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world, and our patients especially love it for its ability to essentially take years off their facial appearance. When fine lines, wrinkles, lost volume, or sagging skin start to make their presence known, a facelift tends to be the answer. Still, our patients frequently want to know: Exactly how many years a facelift can remove from my appearance?
Let’s take a look at how Dr. Majamundar performs the facelift surgery, and explore exactly how many years it can potentially restore to your facial appearance.
The Basics of the Facelift Procedure
The facelift procedure is designed to lift and reposition the musculature of the middle and lower face, while also trimming away the presence of any excess skin and removing any unwanted fat cells. The result is a more youthful and alert appearance.
The actual “lifting” of the facelift procedure works to reverse much of the sagging and drooping that can come along with age and weather exposure. Each patient is different and brings a unique set of cosmetic goals, but most of them agree that the facelift is as popular as it is thanks to its ability to essentially take years away from their facial appearance.
Exactly How Many Years Can My Facelift Remove?
As part of a study in the February 2011 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Eric Swanson, MD discovered that most facelift procedures create results that the majority of patients find to remove about 12 years from their facial appearance, on average.
By studying the outcomes of more than 100 facelift patients, while also interviewing them to learn how they feel about their results, Dr. Swanson was able to determine that the “average subjective reduction in apparent age” experienced by most patients after a facelift procedure was about 11.9 years. Even more encouraging is the fact that an astounding 97% of patients were found to be extremely happy with the results of their procedure.
