A revision facelift can correct or enhance the results of a previous facelift if you are disappointed in the outcome. Because the revision process requires more skill and precision than a primary facelift, a board-certified plastic surgeon with significant experience in revisions should only perform these procedures. Triple board-certified Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann and his son, fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Bradley Eisemann, can help you achieve the refreshed, youthful, and natural look you desire.

When is a revision facelift necessary?

Sometimes called a secondary facelift, a revision facelift corrects the results of a poor previous facelift. Facelifts fail when surgeons perform superficial facelifts, which tighten the skin but do not address supportive musculature. They may pull facial tissue too tight for a startled and unnatural appearance. In other cases, surgeons undertreat the face, leaving jowls, lax skin, and drooping cheeks.

A revision facelift may be necessary when:

  • You’re unhappy with the results of the previous facelift
  • The natural aging process requires a secondary facelift for maintenance
  • The last facelift results are unbalanced, uneven, or look unnatural
  • Your face was altered so that you feel you don’t look like yourself
  • The first facelift did not achieve rejuvenating effects

What are the benefits of a revision facelift?

A revision facelift in Houston can create or restore a more natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Having a surgeon with exceptional experience and skill, such as the surgeons at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center, can create an outcome that will restore your confidence in your appearance.

Some of the benefits of a revision facelift include the following:

  • Restoring your facial aesthetic balance
  • Enhancing your existing facial features
  • Rejuvenating many of the features of a more youthful appearance
  • Minimizing or eliminating the unsatisfactory results of previous surgery

Am I a candidate for a revision facelift?

If you have had at least one prior traditional or mini facelift and want to enhance or correct the results, you could be a candidate for a revision facelift. However, waiting twelve months after the initial surgery before undergoing a revision facelift is best. This is because it takes approximately one year for skin, muscle, and other tissue to heal before the face can safely undergo another operation.

Revision facelift candidates include people who:

  • Are in good health with no current or ongoing infections in the surgical site
  • Are non-smokers
  • Have unsightly scar tissue from a previous facelift
  • Have uneven or unnatural-looking results of a prior facelift
  • Need a touch-up to repair a surgical error or as maintenance due to aging


During your consultation with one of our surgeons, they will examine the results of your last lift to determine whether you are a good candidate for a revision facelift.

Revision facelift procedure and recovery

There is no one-size-fits-all surgical technique for a revision facelift. After assessing your condition, Dr. Michael Eisemann or Dr. Bradley Eisemann will craft a customized surgical plan for your secondary facelift.

The type of lift chosen will depend on the following:

  • The shape of your face
  • Quality of the tissues
  • Surgeon's preference and skill set
  • Facial changes you wish to correct from your initial lift
  • The elasticity of your skin, which has continued to age since your initial procedure

Your surgeon may use lighter anesthesia, such as local anesthesia and oral sedation, to decrease bleeding and increases the chances of a safe procedure and an easy recovery. The underlying scar tissue from the first surgery can reinforce the lifting technique for a better and longer-lasting result.

“Touch-up” procedures are unlikely to need invasive techniques to achieve naturally beautiful and balanced results. While it’s not uncommon to need another facelift at some point in your life, it takes approximately ten years post-procedure for the aging process to necessitate revisions.

The recovery period will be similar to the original surgery, as will the aftercare instructions. Your results should last between ten and fifteen years, as facial skin will droop and underlying tissue will sag with age.
