A revision facelift is performed to refine or repair a previous facelift procedure. Also called a secondary facelift, this procedure can either improve a successful facelift that has aged over time or resolve problems in several areas of the face that were undertreated or wrongly corrected in a first facelift.
A precision surgery: Revision facelift
This type of plastic surgery requires extreme precision and customized techniques to address the problems associated with the first facelift or restore the youthful look that has diminished due to age. Those who undergo this corrective procedure can expect renewed or even better results than were achieved in the first surgery, with tighter skin and a lifted appearance that looks youthful and natural.
When is a revision facelift necessary?
Revision facelifts are typically for patients who are unhappy with the results of their previous facelift procedure. But even with a successful facelift, a person may still need to undergo a revision later, as the bony and soft tissue of the face continue the aging process as the years pass, with further receding, thinning, and drooping. The skin will also continue to lose elasticity, sagging and drooping over time.
What does a revision facelift do?
A revision facelift specifically addresses the following issues:
- Unsatisfactory results from the first facelift
- A decline in the refreshed appearance of a facelift
What are the benefits of a facelift?
Each person will need a custom approach in a revision facelift. Whether your initial surgery had unsatisfactory or uneven results, or your facelift was years ago, and you want to restore the firm, sculpted facial look, your operation will require a carefully developed treatment plan, just for you.

What is the revision facelift procedure?
A revision facelift can be addressed with several approaches, depending on the issues and areas of the face needing resolution. Dr. Sedgh uses only the safest and most advanced face-lifting techniques to achieve the optimum lift; a face that appears fresh, graceful, and natural.
To begin surgery, the doctor creates a strategic incision (usually at the scarring site from the initial facelift) to obtain maximum access to the underlying facial tissues. The specific details of the actual procedure will depend on the chosen technique, but generally, once the incisions have been made, Dr. Sedgh will reposition and tighten the deeper tissues to avoid skin-only pulling, which can result in a skeletal, tight, or overdone appearance.
In most cases, Dr. Sedgh may also incorporate liposuction to remove excess fatty deposits for a more sculpted, refined look. In other cases, he may use fat grafting to add volume and reduce the appearance of hollow cheeks or temples.
In combination with the facial portion of the procedure, the doctor may perform neck contouring to smooth away vertical neck bands and minimize the appearance of “turkey neck” directly under the chin. The length of the procedure will vary depending on your needs and the extent of the revisions required.
