If you’re contemplating cosmetic surgery, you may wonder how long cosmetic surgery results last. Some cosmetic procedures last a long time, while others require maintenance or regular refreshing. Let’s look at some of the most popular procedures, how long the results typically last, and how you can help maintain your new look with some tips and tricks.
Body contouring can remove excess skin, improve the appearance of the skin’s firmness and remove excess fat. With healthy lifestyle choices, body contouring, including cosmetic procedures like liposuction, can last for years. In some cases, results last up to a decade.
Does plastic surgery, like nose jobs, last forever?
A nose job, or rhinoplasty, is a long-lasting surgery. However, the nose does change and grow as you age. Gravity and natural aging cause the cartilage to break down. This process causes facial areas like the ears and nose to sag more. Some people undergo a later-in-life nose job to return their nose to its former look.
However, it’s important to remember that aging is natural; you can’t avoid it with surgery.
Results vary for breast lifts depending on many patient factors, including the following:
Some patients enjoy long-term results, while others choose a refresher surgery after a few years. Like many cosmetic surgery outcomes, you can do a lot to help your new look last longer.
Breast implants last forever, but you’ll need to replace the filler inside every 10-15 years. The breast tissue around the implant shifts over time, so many women undergo a second surgery after about a decade.
If this happens, a breast lift can help correct the placement. So-called “Gummy bear implants” also need replacement after the first decade or two.
The results of a tummy tuck surgical procedure depend on the patient. Many patients enjoy lasting, lifelong benefits from their tummy tuck. However, gaining more than 20% of your total body weight may be detrimental.
Pregnancy can also reverse the effects of a tummy tuck unless you return to your pre-pregnancy weight and shape. Genetics may affect the lasting results, but lifestyle choices that put health first do help.
A chin augmentation involving an implant is a permanent procedure and should last a lifetime. Many patients pair other cosmetic procedures, like a neck lift, to achieve a more defined jawline.
Body contouring, like liposuction, may also be a part of the plan for a patient’s ideal chin profile and appearance. Depending on how a person ages, there may be a need for a refresher procedure after a few decades.
How long does plastic surgery last? You can do a lot to ensure the longevity of your cosmetic surgery results. Taking time for a full recovery, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and staying hydrated helps you get the best results.
