I’m Dr. Ali Mosharrafa at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery. A very common question that I’m asked during a facelift consultation is, “How much younger is this operation going to make me look?” Well, this answer obviously has to consider your age at the time of surgery. The degree to which your skin has aged which can be affected by cigarette smoking, sun exposure, genetics. All of those things affect your skin’s elasticity and in turn affect the amount of time you’re going to get benefit from the facelift procedure. But, to give you an answer, it’s usually somewhere between 8 and 10 years. A well done facelift lasts about 8 to 10 years. If it lasts less than that, either you have very poor skin quality, or you’ve had a surgical procedure that perhaps was underdone. If it lasts longer than 8 to 10 years, chances are the tissues were pulled too tight, and that’s not an option for me, because you’re going to spend most of your recovery period looking like someone you’re not. We don’t want to overdo your procedure. So in summary, a well done cosmetic facelift should last about 8 to 10 years in most patients.

A breast cancer diagnosis is overwhelming in so many ways. There are a lot of emotions. Dr. Ali Mosharrafa and his entire staff put me at ease at every step. After surgery, I was very self conscious, and the way I was treated with each visit helped me as much as the excellent medical care. Whether it is for an elective procedure or a surgery due to illness, I cannot endorse Dr. Ali more as a physician and human.
