Frequently Asked Questions

Many patients decide to undergo this procedure as part of a multi-procedure process. It is very common for a facelift to incorporate a fat transfer from another area of the body to achieve the desired shape and volume. Facial implants or soft tissue augmentation can be used for similar effects. Also, many patients decide to undergo a blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery) or a necklift at the same time as a facelift.

Your genes, skin quality, and maintenance routine are important factors in the longevity of your facelift. However, the results of an upper eye lift can typically be expected to last between eight and ten years, while lower lid surgery is permanent.

Dr. Aboumoussa will consult with you to determine the best method of keeping you comfortable during your rhinoplasty procedure. Assisted local anesthesia is usually recommended for this surgery but general anesthesia may also be used in some cases.

Barring another pregnancy or significant weight gain, your results should be permanent, although plastic surgery will not prevent the effects of normal aging. Once the skin is tightened, it will get a little looser as you age, but not much. However, if you gain and then lose a large amount of weight after a tummy tuck, the abdominal skin could stretch out again, negatively impacting the overall contour.
