Is Facial Plastic Surgery Permanent?

People downplay the surgical risk, discomfort, cost, missing work, and favorite activities to undergo plastic surgery because they expect permanent results. Sadly all facial procedures are not permanent hence the need to get accurate information. Dr. Kovanda of Kovanda Aesthetic Surgery provides facts to his clients on facial surgery that offers long-lasting results without creating a misrepresentation that they last forever.

What Facial Plastic Surgery is Long Lasting?

Many in Minneapolis go for facial enhancing plastic surgery or non-surgical procedures to slow signs of aging. It is the reason anti-aging techniques make up a majority of facial cosmetic treatments. The procedures below cannot stop aging but slow down the inevitable signs, including skin laxity, wrinkles, and volume loss.

Brow Lift

Brow lift surgery enhances the region above the eyes. It is also called forehead lift. A brow lift raises the drooping brows that contribute to a heavy appearance and reduce the depth of the creases that appear on the forehead. These procedures create a youthful appearance for some years since skin and tissues continue breaking with age and damage by the sun. Brow lift together with facelift restores youthful contours despite not stopping natural breakdown.


Kovanda Aesthetic Surgery Minneapolis performs facelift surgery to remove the wrinkles, volume loss, and skin laxity from cheeks to the jawline. It is a procedure that secures and tightens underlying facials tissues. Facelift simultaneously trims unneeded and extra skin around the area. The procedure provides natural results that make patients look younger than before.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) removes aging signs around the eyes. When Dr. Kovanda performs the procedure, it trims the excess skin. Eyelid surgery also removes the fat pockets on the upper and lower parts of the eyelids to restore a youthful appearance. The procedure of targeting natural aging also addresses the wrinkles and lines that occur due to repeated muscle movements.

How to Maintain Facial Plastic Surgery Results

A doctor cannot guarantee the precise time that results of plastic surgery will last because the person who undergoes the plastic surgery plays a part in maintaining and prolonging quality. Below are simple practices that help to lengthen results and slow the quick formation of new aging signs.
1. Follow surgical procedures with facials, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and injectable treatments as recommended by specialists like Dr.Kovanda
2. Wear sunscreen every day. The most sufficient is a broad spectrum SPF 30
3. Keep the skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water, applying moisturizers and lotions
4. Eat healthy foods
5. Do not smoke

Exceptions to Facial Plastic Surgery Pattern

Many plastic surgeries are not permanent, but a few are exceptions to this rule. Some facial augmentation procedures at Kovanda Aesthetic Surgery provide lifelong improvement because they alter the facial structure, yet time does not naturally change it. They include:
• Rhinoplasty
• Otoplasty
• Chin implants

Can Facial Augmentation Procedures be Temporary?

The sole reason for additional surgery to the chin, ears, or nose is when revision procedure becomes necessary. It is rare, but occasionally revision procedure becomes necessary when patients do not heal according to expectations, or additional complications might cause an unexpected outcome. Revision procedures like a revision rhinoplasty could enhance or repair a previous surgical procedure if it left unsatisfactory results.
