FAQ – How Long Does a Facelift Last?

A facelift procedure offers some of the most transformative results in plastic surgery, yet patients are often heavily skeptical about signing up for one. The need for a facelift truly marks someone being “old.” If a patient is now at a time in their life where facial skin is sagging and excessive to the point of needing to be removed (and thus tightened), that’s a lot for many to swallow. Due to that, many patients who would massively benefit from a facelift delay as long as they can via Botox, fillers, and newer non-surgical skin tightening devices. While these tools are powerful in their own right, surgery will eventually be the only worthy option.

While it sounds grim, if a would-be patient makes it to the other side of the procedure, their fears and doubts typically melt away – just like their previously aged face! When it comes to loose skin, surgery remains the gold standard for rejuvenation, and great facelift surgeons in the modern era routinely astound patients with what is possible. More than anything, a great facelift should be about doing everything possible to reinvigorate that patient’s face, not turn it into something else. When patients realize that they will absolutely look like themselves, just refreshed, a facelift becomes one of the most exciting procedures out there.

Even with success in hand, a facelift is an expensive procedure that requires significant downtime. The happiest of facelifts patients still may be curious if they’ll have to do it again, or if they’ll be good for life. In this PSC FAQ, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Craig Colville of Toledo, Ohio answers one of the most popular facelift questions: “How long does a facelift last?”
