How Long Does a Facelift Last?

Are you interested in rejuvenating your appearance with a scar less facelift procedure, but unsure how long the results may last?

As it turns out, results can last for a long time, provided you carefully follow your post-op instructions.

For more details, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo will answer the question “How long does a facelift last?” as well as how much younger your facelift results may make you look.


*Individual results may vary

Facelift Results: What to Expect

Patients can expect to see their scar less facelift results right on the first postoperative day when Dr. Vitolo removes the dressings, however, as swelling resolves over the next few days, the results are even more amazing. Patients can usually wear makeup after 5 to 6 days and return to normal activities and “face the world” in 10 days or so.

Facelift results can last for 10 years or more, provided the patient:

  • Invests in a good skincare regimen
  • Avoids sun damage
  • Hydrates regularly
  • Leads a healthy lifestyle
  • And more

How Much Younger Will You Look After a Facelift?

Every person is different, so there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to how much younger you’ll look after your scar less facelift surgery.

However, Dr. Vitolo is pleased to report that a facelift can be a game-changer for patients, and just a single surgery can erase up to 10 or more years off of a person’s appearance.

Of course, it’s important to choose the right plastic surgeon if you want results that erase years from your appearance. Dr. Vitolo has been performing this type of facelift for several decades, meaning he has been able to perfect his scar less facelift technique over the years. 

The scar less facelift or face and neck lift may be a good choice for you if your aging symptoms may be too severe to treat with dermal fillers or other nonsurgical rejuvenation techniques.

“It has been one year since I made the decision to have liposuction. From beginning to end Dr. Vitolo and his staff were accommodating and professional. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and took the time to answer all of my questions. I was thinking about the procedure for awhile but after talking with Dr. Vitolo, the decision was easy. I’m an active health conscious person, but was unable to get the results I wanted with just diet and exercise. Dr. Vitolo shaped my torso and I’m very happy with results. Recovery was as expected! I think it’s important for people to know that for the best results, you really need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.” *
