Prolong the results of a facelift

Posted: 11:37 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013

By Anita Mandal, M.D.
Question: I had a facelift one year ago and have noticed mild sagging in my neck over the past few months. Is there anything I can do to maintain my results without further surgery?

Answer: Aging, in fact, begins immediately after surgery. Also, no matter how skilled the surgeon, the facial soft tissues tend to loosen somewhat in three to six months. Thus, a facelift is often not as tight at six months as it is right after surgery. This “settling” effect is due to gravity and poor tissue elasticity.

Ultherapy™ is being used either before, during or after surgery to give enhanced surgical results. Ultherapy™ may especially be beneficial just before surgery.

Unlike surgery, which consists of trimming off loose tissue, Ulthera works by increasing collagen and elastin production to cause intrinsic tissue tightening. Ulthera can “prime” the tissues and not only prolong the surgical result, but also help give a more effective surgical lift.

A facelift does not last indefinitely. Careful consultation with your facial plastic surgeon to explore your options can help you decide the best ways to maintain the results of facelift surgery.
