Before committing to a facelift it is common to wonder how long results will last. While this is, of course, dependent on factors such as which type of facelift you have had, your age, and your lifestyle choices, new research has found this procedure often produces pleasing results for a number of years.
Dr. Barry Jones, past president of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, conducted a five year study on 50 women who had undergone facelift surgery. As reported in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, this study found that, even after five years, a majority of facelift patients still looked younger than they did prior to surgery. Lighting and facial angles were duplicated for all before and after pictures to ensure consistency in the computer-assisted analyzing of these results.

It is difficult to determine how long your facelift will continue to produce results, but Beverly Hills facelift Surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole will happily discuss the most effective ways to maintain your appearance after surgery. This may include ways to properly clean and moisturize your skin along with steps to reduce sun damage. It may also include lifestyle choices like not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet.
