A revision facelift, also called a secondary or corrective facelift, is performed to improve on the results of previous facial surgery.

Patients may seek a corrective procedure for any number of reasons.  Among the most common reasons is a tight or pulled appearance, accompanied by residual aging signs, such as jowls or a loose neck, which are usually noticeable after traditional SMAS facelifts.  SMAS facelifts, regardless of the type performed (mini facelift or full facelift) attempt to rejuvenate the face by “pulling” on the SMAS, or superficial muscles of the face. But the SMAS is a fixed structure that has very limited mobility.  A surgery that relies on pulling often creates a pulled look.

Dr. Siegel’s experience and expertise allows him to correct less-than-optimal facelift outcomes.  Often he does that with a deep plane facelift, which is only performed by a few surgeons in the US.

Through a deep plane facelift, Dr. Siegel can work below the SMAS – that is, “deep” under the muscles of the face – releasing all the tension associated with the facial structures. Rather than ‘pulling” on the muscles, this approach gives him the ability to reposition the skin, muscle and fat compartments as one unit. The overall effect of this approach is a re-volumization, giving your face a more natural and youthful appearance.

People travel from across the US and the world for an improved look by Dr. Siegel, but many are right here in the Houston area. We often see patients from Cypress, Spring, Bellaire, Sugar Land, Fulshear, Humble, Katy, and other nearby communities. We also see many patients from other areas in Texas, including Austin, San Antonio, Dallas-Fort Worth, Midland, Odessa, to name a few. Wherever you are, we look forward to helping you achieve your best look.
