If you’re considering boosting your confidence this spring, know your numbers! When choosing plastic surgery, you should be aware of the ins and outs of your treatment. One thing to consider about any procedure is its longevity. Read on to learn more!
How long four common procedures typically last
Because patients, their skin, and their bodies continue to age after surgery, the effects of any procedure will change over time. Individual variables like age and lifestyle habits (smoking, sun damage, etc.) will also impact the longevity of any results.
- Facelift: A facelift is a great choice for those looking to turn back the clock on their aging face. Dr. Houser will remove excess skin and reposition the tissue for a more youthful appearance. It is vital to keep up with skincare and sunscreen and maintain a healthy lifestyle for long-term results. Signs of aging, like decreasing collagen and elastin, will continue to impact your skin. But generally, this procedure can be expected to last 7-10 years.
- Tummy tuck: If you have excess skin after losing weight or having a baby, a tummy tuck can help you achieve a flatter, tighter abdomen. To achieve this look, Dr. Houser will remove excess skin and fat and reposition the belly button. After recovery, patients should continue to stay active and healthy in order to maintain their now-tightened abdomen. When this is done, the effects of a tummy tuck can last a lifetime of a patient maintains their ideal weight!
- BOTOX® and Newtox: BOTOX® and Newtox injections help reduce muscle activity to limit the appearance and development of wrinkles. Patients usually see improvement within a few days. These temporary treatments generally last between three and four months, and repeat sessions are recommended for upkeep. Factors that impact longevity include your unique metabolism, the area being treated, and even physical activity. Fortunately, regular BOTOX® and Newtox can also be preventative, keeping away static wrinkles.
- Eye lift: An upper eyelid lift helps reduce the eyelid’s puffy, tired, sagging appearance by removing excess fat and skin. This procedure typically lasts 7-10 years. During a lower eyelid lift, Dr. Houser reshapes or removes the fatty deposits under the eyes and removes excess skin if necessary to rejuvenate and help brighten tired eyes! Lower eyelid procedures may last for 10-15 years. It is impossible to avoid the effects of aging, so be sure to continue taking care of the skin around the eyes to help diminish wrinkles and keep your eyes looking young.
While these are general estimates, every patient and procedure are unique! Results will vary from patient to patient, depending on a multitude of variables. At your consultation, Dr. Houser will provide more detailed information personalized to your unique situation.
