Revision Facelift Pasadena
Many procedures that rejuvenate the face can be repeated for a variety of reasons. The most common is simply to reinvigorate the face ten to fifteen years after the original facelift. Since aging continues even after the first facelift, some patients would like to restore their original results as much as possible by having a revision facelift.
Other patients feel the need to correct elements from a previous surgery done by another surgeon, where obvious scars are left, or there is an unnatural appearance to the face and neck.
Regardless of the cause, a revision facelift usually does take longer than the original facelift, as the anatomy is slightly changed, and there may be scar tissue left behind. I choose to take time in correcting these aspects of the face.
Fortunately, most revision facelifts do not have substantially longer recovery times. Two factors to keep in mind are the fact that patients are always older when having the revision facelift takes place, and also that a more complex surgery, if medically necessary, may require longer recovery.
