Q: What are some important factors to consider before getting a facelift?

Q: How does the expertise of the surgeon affect the results of a facelift?
Dr. Dare V. Ajibade: The expertise and comfort level of the surgeon and specific surgical techniques can yield a much more drastic result including increasing the longevity of the results.
Q: What are some different types of facelifts?
Dr. Dare V. Ajibade: There are many different techniques of facelift; from skin only to a deep plane facelift. These techniques have increasing complexity and involve progressively more layers of the facial structure to effect more dramatic and lasting results.
Q: Can other procedures be added to improve the results of a facelift?
Dr. Dare V. Ajibade: Other procedures can be added including surgeries for eyebrows, eyelids, nose, lips, and neck. Facelifts that work to improve volume loss with fat transfer beyond the improvement of laxity alone are superior. A more comprehensive approach and the treatment of the face as one big aesthetic unit can also help the overall result.
Q: How long do facelift results last?
Dr. Dare V. Ajibade: Generally, with a good surgeon and a well mapped plan, the results of a facelift should be good for at least 5 to 15 years and maybe even up to 20 years.
Q: How can patients maintain their results?
Dr. Dare V. Ajibade: Things that could potentially improve the longevity of a facelift are related to how well the patient continues to upkeep the result. Facelift results will last longer if patients maintain a healthy lifestyle with exercise and diet. Avoid drastic weight fluctuation, smoking, overuse of alcohol and make sure you get plenty of rest. Patients can also protect their investment with quality skincare products like sunscreen, antioxidants, retinoids, and products that improve pigments.
Q: Are there any maintenance procedures that can extend the life of a facelift?
Dr. Dare V. Ajibade: Maintenance procedures such as botox, filler, PRP, chemical peel and radiofrequency (i.e morpheus) can lessen wrinkles, improve volume loss and rejuvenate the skin to extend the life of the procedure. Patients should always follow up regularly with their surgeon to assess and recommend the best approach for each patient.
