About Revision Facelift

If you’re displeased with the results of your facelift or need another facelift after a decade, you may be the ideal candidate for a revision facelift. Dr. Jeffrey Lisiecki is a fellowship-trained facelift surgeon with specialized training in cutting-edge techniques for facelifts that hide signs of cosmetic work. Whether you want to improve the results of a primary facelift or need a touch-up on the results, please talk to Dr. Lisiecki to explore your options.

What is a revision facelift?

A revision facelift is performed after one or more previous facelift procedures. You may undergo a revision facelift because you don’t like the results of the primary facelift, to reverse the results to an extent, because you’re experiencing complications from your primary facelift, or simply because you’ve developed new signs of aging after 10 years or more. The reasons to undergo a revision facelift vary from patient to patient.

However, whatever your reasons might be, you should consult a fellowship-trained facelift surgeon for a revision facelift. A revision facelift is an extremely challenging surgery because the surgeon has to deal with overly-stretched skin, scar tissues, and other considerations that don’t exist the first time around. Dr. Lisiecki is a highly skilled facelift surgeon specializing in the latest and safest techniques and with an excellent track record with revision surgeries.

Reasons you may need a revision facelift:

  • You have developed new signs of aging a decade or more after the primary facelift
  • Your skin has been pulled too tight during the primary facelift
  • You have highly visible and unsightly scars from your primary facelift
  • Your earlobes have been pulled forward, or your scars are highly visible
  • You are dissatisfied with the results of your primary facelift
  • You have dimpling, creasing, and puckering of the skin after the facelift
  • You are seeing unwanted changes in your mouth, ears, or hairline
  • You have asymmetric or unnatural-looking results
  • Your facelift has been performed using incorrect or outdated techniques



Dr. Lisiecki’s surgical technique for a revision facelift

Dr. Lisiecki performs revision facelift surgeries in his state-of-the-art surgical center in Manhattan under general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes 3 to 5 hours, depending on your unique anatomy, condition, and goals. The surgeon will use the same incisions as the primary facelift to avoid creating new scars, but some situations necessitate making new incisions. The surgeon lifts the skin tissues to access the underlying tissues. He repositions tissues, corrects asymmetries, tightens underlying muscles, and corrects other issues to restore the optimal aesthetic appearance.

Recovery after a revision facelift

You will experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days after your revision facelift surgery. The swelling should be especially pronounced after two days, but it will linger for several weeks because of the scar tissues. The sutures are usually removed 7 to 10 days after the surgery. The surgeon will provide a clear set of aftercare guidelines to ensure optimal recovery. Most patients can resume their normal activities and work within two weeks, but strenuous physical activities should be avoided for four weeks after the surgery.
