How long does facelift recovery take?

Is a facelift a long-lasting solution? 

While a facelift can dramatically improve your appearance, it is not an enduring solution to aging. However, the results can last for many years. Many patients say while they continue to age after a face or neck lift, that they still feel like they look younger because of the lift even many years later.  Patients may occasionally do a 'mini tuck' a decade later to be refreshed but most feel that they still look much better than they would have decades later and rarely do the same procedure twice.  Key benefits include:  

  • Tightening of loose skin: Creates a firmer, youthful appearance 
  • Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines: Enhances the overall smoothness of the face 
  • Improved facial contours: Defines and accentuates your natural features 
  • Long-lasting results: Can last for many years, especially with proper care and maintenance. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Cuzalina or any of the excellent providers of services at Tulsa Surgical Arts and Bella Roma Med Spa can help maintain the youthful results achieved by your facelift.
