Let’s face it: facelift surgery can be a significant financial investment.
That’s why, if you’re interested in getting facelift surgery, you want to make sure your results will make the investment worth it.
So when it comes down to it, how long does a facelift last? And how can you make your results last longer?
Average Duration of Facelift Results
While every individual is different, the majority of facelift patients can expect their facelift results to last for up to ten years.
Some candidates express shock that facelift results aren’t permanent. That’s because facelift surgery is designed to address current aging symptoms; it can’t prevent the formation of new aging issues, like sagging skin, wrinkles and fine lines.
For that reason, the best facelift candidates are those individuals who have realistic expectations for their facelift surgery results.

How to Make Your Facelift Results Last
While facelift results may not be permanent, there are some steps you can take to prolong the duration of your results. These include:
- Wear sunscreen, especially in the months after your facelift surgery. This step prevents the formation of visible facial scarring.
- Eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of water, as these steps help encourage collagen and elastin production (the building blocks for great skin!).
- Consider getting maintenance treatments done, like laser skin resurfacing or anti-aging injectables.
- Use high-quality skincare products to maintain your skin. If you’re not sure what to use, ask your facial surgeon for recommendations.
Your surgeon should provide you with clear post-op steps you can take to achieve optimal facelift results.
I saw Dr Farole for a consult recently, and I was positively impressed. The staff were helpful and efficient, the x-ray tech was super personable and made me feel comfortable, and Dr Farole had a stellar bedside manner. He gave me a lot of valuable time to put me at ease about the purpose of my visit, and I left feeling great.
If I or my family needs an oral surgeon in the future, we will be calling on Dr Farole and his staff.
