Making the move from non-surgical to surgical
Cosmetic plastic surgery procedures require incisions, which can lead to a longer recovery period and more overall downtime than non-surgical treatments. The benefits can include more striking results that last longer. And just how long can you expect results to last when you go “under the knife” to improve your appearance? That depends on you, your surgeon and the procedure.
Implants are not designed to last a lifetime. So depending on the lifespan of the implant, it can be expected to serve its purpose anywhere from 10-30 years.
The longevity of liposuction results depend on various factors, including weight gain, pregnancy, lifestyle, genetics and aging. Gaining weight is one of the most common reasons patients see their results begin to vanish, and the effects and duration of liposuction surgery can always vary by the individual.
Facelift surgery can allow you to look seven to 10 years younger, depending on your skin and the technique used. But as we all know, the aging process won’t stop after the procedure. However, ongoing skincare treatments and healthy lifestyle choices can help maintain your results for even longer.
Eyelift surgery results are considered permanent, but as you continue to age, the brow can drop and the skin can continue to sag. Some patients report that blepharoplasty to repair drooping eyelids holds up well throughout their lives.
Surgery to repair the appearance of your nose is designed to be permanent. However, these lifelong results depend on having the surgery performed after the nose has completely developed. So it’s recommended patients who undergo rhinoplasty be at least 16 years old.
