When you're considering a major cosmetic procedure such as a facelift, you absolutely want to know how long you can expect the results to last. As a Pennsylvania resident considering a significant investment of time and money in a facelift, you have the right to ask these questions.
Dr. Bottger is committed to providing you with the answers you need so that you can make an informed decision. When it comes to the duration of a facelift's results, the answer will depend on the technique used and the skill of the surgeon.
A facelift can't arrest time – eventually, you will see the signs of age after a facelift. However, in our experience, many patients never see the need to undergo another facelift. Some decide to undergo another procedure between eight to 12 years after their first facelift.
You can extend the length of your results by taking good care of your skin. This includes using safe, reputable moisturizing products and protecting your skin from the sun by wearing hats and a good, high-SPF sunscreen.
If you live in Pennsylvania and you have questions about what you can expect from your facelift, please call Dr. David A. Bottger, MD today at 610-355-1929 for a consultation.
