How Long Does a Facelift Last?

The effects of aging can cause your skin to sag and your features to lose definition. A facelift restores your youthful appearance by lifting and firming the mid and lower face. A facelift can dramatically reduce signs of aging, and your results can last for many years. 

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a procedure that lifts loose skin and underlying structures to rejuvenate your features. Dr. Sonneveld’s training and experience give him extensive knowledge of facial anatomy. It allows him to reposition fat, muscle, and skin for natural-looking results. 

A facelift is the ultimate anti-aging procedure. It combines well with other procedures, such as a neck or brow lift.

How Does a Facelift Work?

A facelift occurs under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Sonneveld makes incisions disguised around the ears and within the hairline. He lifts and tightens the skin and underlying structures. He also removes loose skin and repositions fat to restore natural facial contours. The length of the surgery will usually depend on the complexity of your treatment plan and any added procedures. 

How Long Does a Facelift Last?

A facelift can undo many signs of aging, but the aging process will continue to affect your skin. Most people feel satisfied with their facelift results for ten to twenty years. Some people may want a revision to their facelift in a shorter period. You can help your facelift last longer by following some essential skincare steps:

  • Avoid sun exposure and use sun protection every day
  • Use a skincare plan customized for your skin type
  • Eat a healthy diet with skin-supporting nutrients
  • Get a healthy amount of sleep

What is Recovery Like After a Facelift? 

You will spend the first weeks after your procedure resting and recovering. Limit your activities during this time, and follow the instructions on how to care for your incisions. You can resume light activities after two to three weeks. Exercise or other strenuous activities will need to wait at least three weeks.

How Much is a Facelift?

A facelift is a highly customized procedure, making it difficult to provide an accurate estimate without a consultation. The nationwide average facelift cost is $8005. This number does not cover expenses like anesthesia, medications, and other fees. Additional procedures will add to the total cost. We recommend a consultation to determine what you can realistically expect. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?

Good candidates for a facelift have moderate to severe signs of aging and want to reclaim a more youthful appearance. You may be a good candidate if you have lines and wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume. Ideal candidates are in good health and do not smoke.

Dr. Sonneveld and his staff are absolutely fantastic! Every time I walk into the office, I know I’m going to be greeted with a smile. Dr. Sonneveld answered all of my questions, and took the time to explain every part of the procedure. He even contacted me after my TMJ procedure to check in on me. I cannot recommend them enough!
