Corrective Surgery / Revision Facelift

by Dr. Daniel Lin

Corrective Surgery / Revision Facelift | Pasadena | Rowland HeightsThe goal of facelift cosmetic surgery is to reverse signs of aging on the face by tightening the tissues and muscles underneath the skin and removing excess fatty deposits in the jaw, face, and neck while reducing wrinkles, folds, and lines and trimming away loose or sagging skin.

The results of a successful facelift surgery will typically last for around 7 to 10 years, or beyond. But regardless of best efforts, aging and environmental factors will eventually impact the appearance of the face.

Individuals who have received one facelift sometimes seek another surgery to rejuvenate their face after a few years. A revision or secondary facelift is a facelift surgery undertaken on a patient who has already received a facelift previously.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Lin provides revision facelift to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar and surrounding areas in California.


Good Candidates

Ideal candidates for a revision facelift surgery may include the following:

  • Individuals who have had an effective facelift 7 to 10 years ago, but are now beginning to see noticeable signs of aging reappear.

  • Individuals who received a facelift that could not mitigate all signs of facial aging.

  • Individuals whose facelift lead to a “pulled back,” “tight,” or “windswept” look.



Revision facelift cosmetic surgery is performed with the goal of correcting and improving on unwanted outcomes of past surgeries. Patients who have undergone previous surgical treatments elsewhere should select an expert facelift surgeon for a second opinion and assessment for potential corrective surgery.

Revision facelifts involve various techniques which are the same as a primary facelift procedure. But revision facelift surgery is more complex as this procedure must account for the patient’s personal aesthetic goals and scar tissue from previous surgery as well.

Correlating with this, the surgeon must operate on facial structures that have been altered before and moved from their natural position. In the hands of a highly qualified and experienced surgeon with a customized surgical plan, a revision facelift can develop appealing results and offer the patient a youthful, dazzling, and rejuvenated facial appearance.

The structures of the face are complicated. Modern facelift techniques involve making alterations to the tissue and muscles deep within the skin. For this reason, it is important to identify a surgeon with a high level of skill, vast facial surgery experience, and artistic sensibilities.


Why are the Surgeon’s Skills that are Critical to the Success of Revision Facelift?

Revision surgeries are much more complex in all aspects of the patient’s care, and the primary challenges pertain to surgically altered anatomy, scar tissue formation, a higher risk of complications, and increase anxiety for the patient.

Revision surgery is very specialized and aims to identify and address the underlying issue while simultaneously improving facial symmetry, balance, and aesthetics. The corrective surgery usually takes double the amount of time as the primary procedure. In some instances, the procedure may be undertaken in a staged manner for the best possible results.

Cutting-edge facelift techniques allow experienced surgeons to manipulate the facial structures at a deeper level than was possible earlier. This allows them to develop more natural-looking results to address the unique needs of the patient.
