Do you feel dissatisfied with the results of a previous facelift? Maybe you loved the results of your last facelift, but they have faded over time. You might be a good candidate for a revision facelift. This procedure corrects or restores the results of a previous facelift, so you feel happy with your appearance again.
What is a Revision Facelift?
A revision facelift is performed when a person feels unhappy with the results of a past facelift, either recent or years ago. You may have had a facelift and noticed as it healed that your results did not look like you planned. You might have been pleased with your facelift results for a decade or more, but signs of aging have started to return. A revision facelift is a complex procedure that requires a skilled surgeon.
How Long to Wait Before Revision Facelift
After a facelift, swelling can take several months to resolve completely. Results that you dislike initially may improve over time. The surgeons at Awaken Aesthetics recommend waiting at least six months before having a revision facelift. Your surgeon will determine whether you have healed enough to perform the surgery safely.
When to Think About a Revision Facelift
A revision facelift might make a good option for you if you have any of these concerns:
- You had a facelift many years ago and want to restore your results
- You recently had a facelift and did not like the results
- You had problems with healing after a prior facelift

What is Recovery Like From a Revision Facelift?
Your surgeon will give you specific instructions to follow during your recovery, and you will have several follow-up visits in the days after your surgery to monitor your progress. You will feel sore after surgery, but this improves after the first few days. Most people have bruising and swelling that lasts several weeks. Residual swelling can last for up to six months.
What Results Will I See With a Revision Facelift?
If you were concerned with the results of your previous facelift, you could expect the revision facelift to correct the problem and give you the results you originally hoped to achieve. If you enjoyed your results as they used to be, you will see the same results, but lifted and refreshed.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Revision Facelift?
If it has been more than six months since your previous facelift, you may be a good candidate for a revision facelift. You should have a clear and reasonable understanding of what results you can expect to achieve.
