Home » Face » Facelift » Revision Facelift

A revision facelift is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the appearance of individuals who have previously undergone facelift surgery. This secondary surgery aims to address any dissatisfaction with prior results, improving facial aesthetics and restoring a more youthful look.

Correct the Results of
the Original Facelift

Revision facelift is a surgical procedure sought by individuals who have previously undergone facelift surgery and are unsatisfied with the results. Unlike the initial facelift, the revision facelift in Minneapolis focuses on correcting issues like sagging skin, asymmetry, an overly pulled look, and insufficient rejuvenation. By adjusting and refining the previous work, a revision facelift aims to achieve a more satisfying and harmonious facial appearance. It often involves repositioning and tightening facial tissues to restore a youthful and natural look.

Your Revision Facelift Experience


During your consultation, you’ll meet with Dr. Singh. The consultation begins with a thorough discussion of your concerns, goals, and expectations. Your surgeon will assess your previous facelift results, examine your facial structure, and recommend a customized treatment plan. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss any issues you want to address, and gain a clear understanding of the procedure, potential risks, and expected outcomes.


You will receive anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the revision facelift in Minneapolis. Dr. Singh will then make discreet incisions, often within the hairline and along the natural contours of your face, to access the underlying tissues. Dr. Singh will reposition and tighten the underlying facial muscles and tissues, addressing any asymmetry or sagging that may have occurred over time. Excess fat and skin are carefully removed, restoring a more youthful appearance. Once the necessary adjustments are made, the incisions are closed. The entire procedure takes 2 to 3 hours.


After your revision facelift, you may experience side effects like swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which should subside over the next few weeks. Dr. Singh will provide specific instructions on pain management and how to care for your incisions during your recovery. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for four to six weeks. You’ll gradually notice improvements in your facial appearance over the next several months as any residual swelling subsides.

Reasons to Consider Revision Facelift:

  • Unsatisfactory results from a previous facelift
  • Desire for improved facial symmetry
  • Noticeable signs of aging after initial surgery
  • Loss of skin elasticity and firmness
  • Wanting to address new cosmetic concerns
  • Seeking a more natural and refreshed appearance
  • Correcting complications or issues from prior facelift

Revision Facelift FAQs

What are common reasons to consider a revision facelift?

Some common motivations for a revision facelift include dissatisfaction with previous facelift results, signs of aging that have become more pronounced, the desire for better facial symmetry, and addressing new cosmetic concerns that have arisen since the initial surgery.

Are there any age restrictions for undergoing a revision facelift?

There are no strict age restrictions, but candidates for a revision facelift should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations. The procedure’s suitability is determined individually, and your surgeon will assess your specific needs during a consultation prior to scheduling a revision facelift in Minneapolis.

How soon after the primary facelift can I consider the revision facelift?

The timing for a revision facelift after the primary procedure can vary depending on individual circumstances. In most cases, it is advisable to wait at least six months to a year to allow sufficient time for the initial results to settle and for any swelling or scar tissue to subside. Your surgeon will evaluate your situation to determine if you’re ready for a revision facelift.

Is a revision facelift more complex than a primary facelift?

Yes, a revision facelift can be more complex than a primary facelift because it involves addressing the alterations made during the initial surgery. Factors such as scar tissue, changes in facial anatomy, and previous incisions can make the procedure more intricate. You must work with a fellowship-trained surgeon like Dr. Singh to ensure safe, optimal results.

When will I see the final results of my revision facelift?

The full results of your revision facelift will become evident over several months as your facial tissues settle into their new position and any residual swelling fully resolves.
