What is a repeat facelift?

Many of my Houston facelift patients have had previous facelifts, neck lifts, or facial rejuvenation surgery.  A repeat facelift is performed when a patient has aged and developed more skin laxity after a previous facelift.  These types of facelifts can be more difficult as there is scar tissue under the skin where dissection occurred from the previous surgery.  The muscle layer or SMAS can be much thinner and more delicate leading to tearing of this layer during suspension and less of a robust, impressive lift.  Wound healing may take longer with a repeat facelift as well.
