The results and longevity of a face lift can be subtle or dramatic, depending on the individual outcome desired, as well as the degree of skin laxity, ageing, and sun damage. Ideal candidates for face lift procedures and facial rejuvenation are fit, do not smoke, are not taking blood-thinning medication, and have realistic expectations. After face lift and facial rejuvenation procedures, a period of psychological adjustment is common as you settle into your new and improved appearance.
Following your face lift, it is important to maintain the results you have achieved. This maintenance will include living a healthy lifestyle and not smoking, as well as regular skin care and sun protection with a high SPF. For optimal results, peels, regular muscle-relaxing injections and fillers may be recommended.
