Facelift Revision Surgery

60 year old womanThere are various reasons why a patient may consider a revision facelift regardless of whether they has had a primary facelift cosmetic surgery a few months or a few years ago.

A facelift is meant to restore a more youthful look and delay the signs of facial aging. But it cannot prevent aging in the future altogether.

With more time and sun exposure, patients may notice sagging in the jowls or under the eyes since their initial facelift. This aging process is natural, primarily as the fatty tissue of the face reduces over a period. This is when many patients choose a facelift revision surgery.

 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides facelift revision surgery to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other towns and neighborhoods in SoCal.

 

Need for a Revision Facelift

 

The patient could have received their initial facelift cosmetic surgery with inappropriate techniques or by a less experienced or less trained surgeon. In these cases, the patient may have an unnatural or “over done” appearance to their face after the primary surgery.

 

This issue is sometimes seen in patients who undergo a facelift with techniques that only lift and tighten the skin rather than rework the deeper muscle and tissue layers of the face (which can be achieved through the use of a deep plane or SMAS lift approach).

 

Candidates for a Revision Facelift

 

If a patient experiences the following issues after their primary facelift, they may be an ideal candidate for a facelift revision surgical procedure:

 

  • Unnatural outcomes that seem pulled or overdone
  • Skin sagging beneath the jawline and in the mid-face area
  • Fat loss in the under eyes, upper cheeks, around the lips or in the mouth region
  • Folds around the mouth and lower eyelids
  • Excess fat deposits in the jowls and neck

 

Ideal candidates for a facelift revision surgery are in optimal physical and emotional health. Revision facelift surgery candidates should not smoke and take anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin for a minimum of two weeks prior to the surgery to decrease the risks of complications. Furthermore, patients should develop realistic expectation regarding the results as with any surgery.

 

Characteristics of Ideal Candidates

 

Good candidates for a facelift revision will usually have the following attributes:

 

Degree of Skin Elasticity

 

Ideal candidates for a facelift revision procedure possess skin with a certain level of flexibility, elasticity, and pliancy. The surgeon will tighten the skin on the face to mitigate the appearance of wrinkles during the revision procedure. The patient will experience outcomes that are smooth and look natural when pulled tight if the skin has some degree of elasticity.

 

Strong Bone Structure

 

 

A candidate for a revision facelift should have a well-defined underlying bone structure. This offers support to the procedure leading to outcomes that are more sustainable. In case the patient’s features are less distinctive, they can choose implants for the face in addition to or instead of a facelift revision surgery.

 

Realistic Expectations

 

The candidate should clearly understand what a facelift revision surgery can and cannot offer. They should view multiple facelift revision before and after images to gauge what this procedure can do for them.

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will explain the steps involved in facelift revision procedure.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides facelift revision surgery to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Need for a Facelift Revision Procedure

 

A potential issue with the primary facelift surgery in some cases may be the appearance of overly tight skin (often known as the “wind-swept” deformity). This condition is most prominent near the corners of the mouth because the posterior pulling stretches the skin in this region in an undesirable manner creating an unappealing contour and an “operated” appearance.

 

A similar issue may occur in the neck area as well when the neck skin is tightened without the treatment of the neck muscles. This causes the appearance of two tight bands in the anterior neck (the medial edges of the platysma muscles) known as the “cobra neck” deformity.

 

In both of these deformities, the patient requires a revision facelift plastic surgery. The revision facelift will involve more in-depth dissection and focus on repositioning the deep connective muscle and tissue layers of the neck and face.

 

Some other typical problems after traditional facelifts are an incomplete treatment or an early recurrence of the jowls as well as continuous droopiness of the cheek region (known as mid-face ptosis). While these issues are different, they occur due to the same reason-the incomplete release of the soft tissues of the face.

 

The surgeon can make sure that the patient does not experience these problems by performing a more comprehensive facelift, yet not placing a more substantial incision. On top of this, patients who have undergone a facelift in the past but have faced these problems can choose a revision facelift procedure for the treatment of the jowls and lifting the cheeks.

 

Steps in the Revision Facelift Procedure

 

Anesthesia

 

Administering the anesthesia is the initial step in any major plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift. The surgeon may choose general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. The decision on the type of anesthesia to be used will be taken before the surgery and depends on the patient’s ability to undergo general anesthesia, which the surgeon will evaluate beforehand.

 

Incision Placement

 

The surgeon will place incisions after the anesthesia to perform the revision procedure. In order to minimize the appearance of any resulting scarring, the surgeon will place the incisions as discreetly as possible. The incision is typically positioned within the hairline. However, the extent of the incisions may differ on the basis of the revision facelift technique that the surgeon will use.

 

Muscle and Skin Tightening

 

The surgeon will lift the skin of the face through the incisions. They will then remove or redistribute surplus fats, tighten the underlying sagging muscles, and trim away the extra facial skin.

 

After enhancing the facial contours, the surgeon will drape the skin back smoothly and tightly making use of sutures and staples. After this, they will apply a bandage to the incision sites to support the healing of the area.

 

Combining Other Procedures with Facelift Revision

 

The patient may choose to combine a facelift revision with other procedures to accomplish more comprehensive outcomes, in consultation with the surgeon. The surgeon may perform facial and neck liposuction to remove fatty pockets in the area, enhancing the facial contours.

At the time of pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will discuss the potential risks with the patient to help them make an informed decision.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides facelift revision surgery to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and surrounding communities.

 

Common Risks

 

Facelift surgery can turn back the clock by treating saggy skin, tightening facial muscles and improving the contours of the face. However, it can also lead to issues such as:

 

  • Adverse response to anesthesia: Anesthesia is safe for a majority of patients. But patients suffering from underlying medical conditions may be at-risk for stroke, heart attack and other severe problems.
  • Infection: Every surgery has a certain risk of infection. But when the surgeons and the surgical venues follow the correct sanitation protocols, this risk is negligible.
  • Hematoma: If the patient suffers bleeding underneath the skin, it can be very uncomfortable for them as well as lead to inflammation and discoloration of the skin. The only solution to this problem is surgical intervention.
  • Nerve damage: In exceptional cases, the surgery may cause a nerve to be cut, cauterized or nicked leading to facial paralysis or numbness. However, when this does happen, the adverse outcomes may resolve over time.
  • Visible scarring: A facelift always involves some scarring. However, the scarring is discreet in most cases. On occasion, there may be some mild marks that are not hidden behind in the hair or behind the ear.

 

Patients should evaluate the potential risks and benefits of a revision facelift plastic surgery before deciding to undergo the procedure.

 

Minimizing Risks

 

Complications arising from facelift surgery are uncommon. However, patients can undertake some things to mitigate the risk from the procedure even more. Firstly, patients should select a highly-trained cosmetic surgeon.

 

Secondly, they should be forthcoming and honest with their surgeon about their medical history, smoking, and drug use. Withholding such information may lead to severe complications that are otherwise avoidable.

 

Furthermore, the patient should be prepared to follow the surgeon’s pre and post-operative guidelines diligently. Lastly, it is vital to stop smoking a couple of weeks before and after the facelift procedure. Patients who do not follow these instructions have a higher chance of developing difficulties in healing, noticeable scarring, and unfavorable outcomes.

 

Safety Data

 

People concerned about the complications enlisted above should be aware that these problems occur exceptionally rarely. Most patients experience a smooth procedure, rapid recovery, and desirable aesthetic outcomes.

 

Hematoma

 

Researchers indicate that hematoma is the most common complication following facelift surgery. It affects one to three percent of females and seven to nine percent of males. The risk for hematoma development is apparently higher for men. Other reasons that may increase the chance of developing a hematoma are smoking, using NSAIDs or aspirin, and high blood pressure.

 

Nerve Damage

 

The second most common facelift surgery risk is the dreaded complication of nerve damage. Fortunately, the rates of nerve damage after this surgery are low. Only 0.5 to 2.6% of all facelift patients suffer nerve paralysis.

Facelift Revision Surgery RecoveryFacelift revision is a cosmetic surgery performed with a goal to correct any anomalies that may have occurred in the primary facelift procedure. Recovery in facelift revision may not be very different from the primary procedure, but may sometimes take a longer time if the revision is more extensive.

At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will explain various aspects of facelift revision surgery to the patient and help them make an informed decision.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides facelift revision to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and neighboring communities and towns in this region of the state.

Key Elements in Recovery

Recovery in case of facelift revision plastic surgery will not only involve a considerable physical recovery, but also emotional and social recovery. The patient should be prepared that the recovery of natural skin sensation in the treated sites will also take some time.

As the procedure will involve changes to the facial appearance, social and emotional aspects become almost as vital as the physical aspects. Total recovery period may be about two to three weeks.

The surgeon will remove the drain tubes and sutures in about a week to 10 days. Thereafter, the patient can resume their routine activities or go back to work. However, a few patients may require at least two weeks at home before the signs of surgery begin to subside. Some residual swelling may linger on even after two weeks, but it can be hidden with makeup.

After the first week, signs of bruising will resolve fast. Patients with a thin face may have an advantage because the temporary swelling in the face may only look like subtle facial fullness, and may be less conspicuous. The treated sites in the face will significantly improve by the third week.

Most patients will experience mild numbness in the skin around the incision sites, but it usually resolves on its own in a few weeks.

Suture sites will be slightly firm in the first two weeks, but this will not be visible to others. The surgeon will provide post-operative care instructions, which should be followed for a safer and easier recovery.

Suggestions for Driving During Recovery

During the first week, the patient should avoid driving because stiffness in the lower face and neck may cause pain while turning the head. If the patient is taking some pain medications, they should not drive until the course of medication continues. On the first drive after the procedure, the patient should preferably have another driver accompanying them who can take over if the patient feels tired.

Resuming Activities

While the patient will usually be able to return to normal household or workplace activities after a week, they should continue to refrain from any type of vigorous activity or exercises for at least two to three weeks. These activities should be resumed only after receiving explicit go-ahead from the surgeon.

Facelift revision is often a more complex procedure than the primary facelift cosmetic surgery. While making a customized surgical plan, the surgeon will seek the patient’s inputs in order to address their specific concerns.

Facelift Revision Surgery Before and After PhotosSome surgeons may also present facelift revision surgery before and after photographs at the treatment planning stage.

The surgeon will explain all about the benefits and limitations of facelift revision surgery in the specific case, and help the patient make an informed decision.

What are Facelift Revision Before and After Images?

Before and after images in case of facelift revision plastic surgery refer to a set of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same procedure with a satisfactory outcome. The set includes images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when initial bruising and swelling has disappeared and full effects of facelift revision are visible.

The surgeon will take care to ensure that the pictures are obtained with the patient’s proper consent and shown to new patients in a discreet manner. The identity of the patient will be kept undisclosed as required. The surgeon’s only purpose behind this exercise is to use these images as a visual tool to educate new patients about the potential effectiveness of facelift revision surgery.

Dr. Seify believes in transparency and stands by his work. This is why he puts out his work for anyone to see. He is proud of his achievements and there are many people out there today very happy they chose him to work on their face and perform various other procedures that have improved the quality of their lives.

Benefits

Face is aesthetically the most visible and prominent part of the body, which defines the personality. Patients seeking a facelift revision procedure are likely to be more concerned because they would certainly like to get it right the second time. Some patients may only require a limited correction in one aspect, but some others may need a more significant revision surgery.

Sometimes the surgeon may suggest facial liposuction, eyelid lift, neck lift, rhinoplasty or chin augmentation or reduction in conjunction with facelift revision. In each situation, the patient is in a better position to make the right choices when they have access to facelift revision surgery before and after photos.

Having Realistic Expectations

Judicious surgeons know that concrete satisfaction levels in any cosmetic procedure, including facelift, are typically achieved by patients who have a positive mindset, clear cosmetic goals, and realistic expectations. Therefore, they may present these photos at the very outset and encourage the patient to review as many of them as possible.

Once the patient understands clearly what a facelift revision can or cannot do for them, they will be able to better appreciate the final results. It will also minimize the possibility of any disappointment occurring at a later stage.

Photos on the Website

The plastic surgeon may choose to provide facelift revision surgery before and after photos on their practice website which is the case here as already discussed. The website is outstanding and has enabled thousands of people to regard the work that he has done without notifying anyone. This has enlightened so many people.

If the surgeon has an active social media presence, they may even share the photos socially through platforms such as Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram.

The plastic surgery community has embraced digital technology but not all sites are as stellar as this one. Now a patient can see what to expect for a variety of surgeries without anyone knowing as already mentioned.

This means that a patient knows pretty much what to expect before signing any paperwork. This is better for everyone and makes for any procedure to be less trying and more wholesome.

What is the Price Tag for Facelift Revision Surgery?Facelift revision cosmetic surgery procedure may be necessary if the patient is not satisfied with the results of the primary surgery, or is seeking a secondary facelift at a later stage for further aesthetic enhancement.

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss all aspects of facelift revision, including it costs. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify provides facelift revision surgery to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other towns and suburbs in this section of SoCal.

More Expensive than Facelift

A facelift revision procedure can often involve more than just tissue repositioning and fat redistribution. Sometimes surgical fat removal or liposuction may be required. In some cases, the patient may choose to add forehead lift, eyelid lift, cheek or chin implants, or another plastic surgery.

Sometimes non-surgical treatments such as chemical peels to minimize acne scarring or injectable procedures such as Botox or dermal fillers may be combined with the revision facelift. The revision procedure itself can be more complex than the primary facelift. All of these aspects can increase the cost of a facelift revision surgery.

Factors Affecting the Cost

The cost of facelift revision surgery will also be impacted by a number of other factors. The following financial components will usually be a part of the overall sticker price:

  • Plastic surgeon’s fee
  • Surgical room expenses
  • Costs of general anesthesia or IV sedation
  • Pre- and post-surgery medical tests
  • Prescription medications
  • Post-operative appointments with the surgeon

All these cost elements can vary from one practice to another, and sometimes also from one patient to another at the same practice. Revision facelift is usually performed on an outpatient basis, but if overnight hospital stay is necessary for a patient, the price tag will increase.

Other factors that may impact the price tag include:

  • Practice location
  • Experience and skill of the surgeon
  • Choice of technique and extent of surgery to be performed
  • Involvement of additional procedures  

Investment in Yourself

A facelift revision surgery is a personal decision for a patient, and they should view it as an investment in their own body and self-esteem. Therefore, the decisions should not be driven by costs alone. The patient’s goal should be to achieve safe and predictable outcomes that provide sustainable satisfaction and natural looking facial appearance, which was probably missing after the primary facelift surgery.

The patients should educate themselves about the professional credentials, experience, and industry recognition of the surgeon, the types of facial enhancements that are possible with different revision techniques, and the overall financial responsibilities involved in the procedure (some may never materialize but all patients should be cognizant of them). This will enable them to make the right choices and achieve the most out of their investment in facelift revision surgery.

Financing

While the monetary amount of a facelift revision surgery may not be covered under the patient’s health plan, it is always possible to get the procedure financed through a professional medical care financing company.

These companies offer competitive loan terms, quick loan approvals and convenient monthly installments. Prudent cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify receives patients from Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas in The Golden State for a facelift revision surgery.

The results of a successful facelift will usually sustain for about 7 to 10 years or more.

However, despite best efforts, environmental factors and aging take a toll and impact the facial appearance.

Candidacy

Candidates for a revision facelift surgery may include:

People who have had a good facelift 7 to 10 years ago, but are now starting to see visible signs of aging reappear

Individuals need not wait for this long to consider a revision facelift plastic surgery procedure. A person who feels that their facelift was ideal but the outcomes did not sustain as long as expected, can also be good candidates for this procedure.

People who underwent a facelift which could not address all signs of facial aging

In cases where a facelift is done without a neck lift, for example, the face might look youthful while the jawline and neck will continue to look droopy, saggy, or lax. Similarly, it the facelift is performed without a complementary cheek lift, the cheeks may appear droopy and the lower eyes hollow which can compromise the outcome of the facelift.

People whose facelift caused a “tight,” “pulled back,” or “windswept” appearance

Advanced facelift techniques allow experienced surgeons to orchestrate the facial structures at a deeper level than could be done in the past. This enables them to create significantly more natural-looking outcomes and happier patients.

Techniques

Revision facelifts comprise of multiple techniques which are the same as a “first-time” facelift procedure. However, revision facelifts are more complex. A revision facelift surgery must consider the patient’s individual cosmetic goals as well as scar tissue from the past surgery.

Furthermore, the surgeon must also operate on structures of the face that have been surgically altered before and shifted from the original position. If performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon with a precise surgical plan, a revision facelift can create attractive results and leave the patient with a youthful, radiant, and rejuvenated facial appearance.

Facial structures are very complicated. Modern facelift techniques entail making changes to the muscles and tissue deep within the skin. This makes it vital to choose a surgeon with a high skill level, extensive facial surgery experience, and an eye for aesthetic detail.

Suitable Candidates

Healthy adults who are unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face may consider facelift plastic surgery. Ideally, the candidate should have some amount of skin elasticity and suppleness to achieve optimal facial contours. The underlying bone structure should be strong and well-defined to support and contribute to successful results.

Types of Facelift

Facelift surgery can be categorized according to the type of technique used to perform the procedure:

Endoscopic Facelift

This is an advanced technique involving smaller incisions through which the surgeon will insert a tiny endoscope or microscopic camera. Once the surgeon has a clear view of the underlying facial structure on a monitor, it is possible to remove excess skin and redistribute fat in a more precise manner and restore a younger looking face.

Cutaneous Facelift

This is an old technique, which is limited only to the surgical removal of loose skin. It involves a longer incision along the hairline through which the surgeon will remove excess skin and re-drape the tightened skin smoothly. The underlying muscular structure is not affected with this procedure.

SMAS Facelift

This is a more popular, comprehensive facelift procedure that involves lifting and tightening of the underlying muscle structure to enhance facial contours. Excess skin will also be removed, and results can be more natural looking and substantive compared to older facelift techniques.

S-Lift

The procedure involves an S-shaped incision in front of the ears. The incisions are smaller as compared to a traditional facelift, leading to reduced risk, and shorter recovery period. Jaw and lower face are ideally treated with this technique.

Deep Plane Lift

If the patient needs a focused treatment in the mid face area, including prominent nasolabial folds, a deep plane lift may be used. The technique involves lifting of the entire facial structure as a single unit.

Facelift and Your Wallet

The cost of facelift surgery can vary from one patient to another or one practice to another, depending on several factors. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Seify will discuss all aspects, including costs, during initial consultation with his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and nearby areas.

Recovery and Results

Most patients can go back to work or resume their normal activities at home in about 10 to 14 days. Vigorous exercises should be avoided for about one month. Results will continue to establish over several months as swelling subsides gradually. On average, a facelift surgery can take five to 10 years off the patient’s face.
