The longevity of a facelift procedure will depend on several factors including genetics, technique, health/lifestyle of the individual and post-surgical skin care. Dr. Barone’s facelift technique is termed “deep plane” as it utilizes the deeper tissues or fascia to reposition, remove excess laxity and provide long lasting support. This approach is preferred over superficial techniques that only tighten skin because they do not last as long due to skin relaxation, and can result in a “pulled” look.
A healthy lifestyle, avoiding smoking and excess sun exposure, combined with an effective medical skin care regimen can profoundly increase the longevity of a facelift as well as any other facial aesthetic procedure. Achieving natural appearing and long-lasting results are possible when these fundamentals are followed.
Will a facelift make me look different?
Our philosophy at evolv Plastic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics for all cosmetic surgery and aesthetic procedures is to obtain a natural appearing and balanced result. This can only be achieved through a comprehensive evaluation of each patient’s individual aging patterns and characteristics as well as a thorough understanding and familiarity with multiple proven aesthetic procedures and products. The goal at evolv is not to change a patient’s natural appearance but to reduce the various manifestations of aging to provide a more youthful appearance – in essence, turning the clock back.
The combined application of repositioning skin and tissues, rather than just pulling skin, resurfacing with peels and utilizing natural volume enhancement with fat grafts offers the real possibility of a long-lasting, natural rejuvenation for any patient concerned with the signs of aging.

There are many new and effective non-surgical options for reducing the signs of aging, but significant laxity and jowling of the face and neck typically require facelift surgery for proper and long-lasting correction. Because facial aging involves several different fundamentals, comprehensive rejuvenation is most naturally improved with facelift procedures combined with skin care and volume correction to achieve a balanced result. Non-surgical options are best reserved for the appropriate candidates with mild to moderate signs of aging. Visit our Exilis Elite and Infini pages for more information regarding these procedures.
