One of the most common questions Dr. Champagne receives from his patients considering a facelift is, “How long will my results last?” It’s important to understand that the goal of a facelift is to turn back the clock, not stop it. While we continue to age, gravity takes effect, and volume loss occurs over time, a facelift helps you maintain a more youthful appearance.

A facelift generally focuses on the lower part of the face, from the cheekbones down to the jawline, often including a neck lift. The upper part of the face, such as the brow, would be addressed with a brow lift. These procedures are designed to tighten and lift sagging skin, reduce wrinkles, and restore a more youthful contour to your face and neck.

The results from these procedures typically last about 7 to 10 years, making you look 7 to 10 years younger than if you had never done anything at all. This means that if you undergo a facelift at 60, you might look as though you are 50 to 53 years old.

It’s essential to have realistic expectations and understand that a facelift doesn’t stop the aging process. However, it does set back the clock, so you continue to look younger than you would without the procedure. Many patients find that maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including good skincare, a balanced diet, and avoiding excessive sun exposure, can help prolong the results of their facelift.

In summary, a facelift is an excellent option for those looking to achieve a significant, long-lasting improvement in their facial appearance. By understanding the procedure and its outcomes, you can make an informed decision and enjoy the benefits of looking rejuvenated for years to come.
