Revision Facelift in Long Island, NY
As plastic surgery gains popularity amongst men and women in Long Island, Queens and surrounding communities in New York, we see some patients who are no longer happy with the results of their first facelift performed at other practices. Eunice E. Park, MD, who is dual board-certified in facial plastic surgery and ear, nose, and throat (otolaryngology), offers revision facelift surgery to improve the results of your first facelift.
What is a Revision Facelift?
Facelifts are popular surgeries for men and women who have advanced signs of aging, such as sagging, folds, and creases. Sometimes the surgeries do not create the desired results, and other times due to the aging process a person needs a secondary facelift surgery. Dr. Park may recommend a revision facelift in either of these cases.
Benefits of a Revision Facelift
A revision facelift may be corrective in nature or recommended to repair signs of aging that occur naturally after your first facelift. The procedure may be referred to as a “secondary” facelift. Revision facelifts may require different techniques than primary facelifts due to the changes in the patient’s muscular structure and skin placement.
The benefits of a revision facelift are:
- Corrects wrinkles, lines and sagging that occur after your first facelift
- Repairs aspects of your first facelift that were less than satisfactory, such as the skin being too tight or too loose
- Helps extend the anti-aging results of the first facelift surgery
Am I a Candidate for a Revision Facelift?
Because revision facelifts are specialized techniques of facial surgery, the best way to know if you are a good candidate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Park. She will discuss your first facelift and examine the changes made during the surgery. Dr. Park will then use her professional expertise to determine if a revision facelift is an option for you.
What to Expect from a Revision Facelift
In some cases, the results of a primary facelift cannot be repaired due to the removal of skin and fat as well as changes to the facial muscles. Dr. Park will develop a plan that is individualized and seeks to achieve realistic expectations of your revision facelift, so you feel confident about your choice. As with your first facelift, a revision facelift will not stop the aging process, and results vary by patient. You may need another facelift in the future to maintain your younger appearance.
