Facelift patients who have a second facelift an average of 10 years later experience lasting results and a low complication rate from this second surgery, according to a report in this month’s issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, a secondary facelift can be safe and effective for an older patient, the researchers found.

The study looked at 60 patients who were having a second facelift. Mostly women and a few men, the patients were an average of 51 years old at the time of the first facelift, and an average of 60 years old for the second.

The study found a 5 percent complication rate for the secondary facelifts, which is about the same for first-time facelifts.

Ten of the patients had a third facelift an average of seven-and-a-half years later, which may mean the results of a second facelift probably last several years.
