Are you thinking about getting cosmetic surgery? How exciting for you! The decision to have a cosmetic procedure performed is a big one, so finding out as much information as you can about any procedures you are interested in getting is a very wise idea. New advances in medical technologies now allow for many surgical enhancing procedures to be performed, which indeed means that you have many choices. Moreover, the recovery period for a vast majority of the procedures only spans from a few days to a few weeks, making it easier than ever before for people who are looking to improve their features to do.

How long does cosmetic surgery last?

Every cosmetic surgical method is going to be different when it comes to how long the procedure will last. While there are general guidelines for how long a particular procedure will take to complete, it is merely going to depend on the individual patient. Some of the factors that are going to come into play for determining how long a cosmetic surgical procedure will last include how old they are, their eating habits, their exercising habits, their weight, whether they smoke, and their overall general health.

General guidelines for cosmetic surgery

The following are a few general guidelines for how long specific cosmetic surgical procedure will last a patient.

  • Breast implants: Breast implants can last a patient anywhere between 10 and 25 years.
  • Facelift: Facelifts tend to last an average of five years.
  • Neck lift:  A neck lift will last between 10 and 15 years.
  • Forehead, eyelid, and brow lift: These procedures can last anywhere between five years and 15 years.
  • Rhinoplasty (nose job):. While rhinoplasty should last a patient a lifetime, sometimes it is necessary to have a second procedure performed due to the possibility of irregularities appearing in the first few years.
