Youthfulness is the primary envy of many who are experiencing the negative effects of aging. In addition to increased fatigue and a slowing metabolism, aging individuals often suffer from a loss of facial definition, sagging skin, and the development of wrinkles. Many of these individuals undergo facelift surgery to rejuvenate their facial appearance. However, there have been instances where a patient is unsatisfied with the final results of their procedure.
Facelift revision can improve the contours of your face after a previous facelift, allowing for harmony to be restored between the upper third (brows and upper eyelids), middle third (cheeks and lower eyelids), and lower third (neck and jawline) of the face. As a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Diamond ensures that his patients are given the best treatment to help them achieve their aesthetic goals.
Often, people steer away from undergoing another surgery after experiencing unfortunate results from a previous procedure. They may be worried that another surgery will provide another negative result or that they will appear even more “done” or “fake.” However, Dr. Diamond employs the latest techniques when performing facelift revision surgery so that patients can expect to have firmer, smoother, and natural-looking skin and facial tissues.
Lateral sweep deformity can occur when the middle third of the face is not addressed correctly with facelift surgery. Patients who have a tight neck and jawline but still struggle with sagging cheeks can opt for facelift revision. Patients with facial hollows, particularly around the eyes, after facelift surgery can also benefit from revision procedures. Dr. Diamond can make your skin look tighter and smoother, giving your face a harmonious and youthful appearance.
Dr. Diamond offers several secondary facelift procedures that are extremely effective at correcting unsatisfactory results after a primary facelift.
Mid facelift surgery can be combined with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to address the lower eyelids and the cheeks.
Through the lower lid incision, the malar fat pads are repositioned, and the midface is lifted vertically, which helps soften the nasolabial lines.
A primary facelift surgery can address tissue sagging along the jawline and cheeks, but it provides minimal correction to volume loss in the cheeks or diminished fat around the eyes. Dr. Diamond can perform facial fat transfer to restore youthful volume to the face in areas such as:
Malar implants, or cheek implants, are facial implants that can be used on patients who have inadequate volume in the cheeks and desire permanent enhancement. Dr. Diamond will add a solid implant over each cheekbone to enhance volume and definition in your cheeks for a natural appearance.
A deep plane facelift can provide excellent rejuvenation results for your face and correct deformities that have occurred after a previous facelift surgery. This procedure can produce long-lasting results with minimal scarring, and it offers a lower risk of complications compared to traditional facelift surgery.
