Skin continually changes with time. Therefore, once you’ve achieved the rejuvenating benefits of a facelift, you can help maintain your more youthful appearance by following these easy tips:

  • Drink plenty of water. The skin is an organ, and it needs water to function correctly. After a facelift, it’s particularly important to stay well hydrated so the skin can maintain moisture and extend the benefits.
  • Stick to a skincare routine. To help skin retain its youthful look; it’s essential to follow a post-surgery skincare routine.
  • Foods such as citrus fruit, strawberries, and broccoli are ideal for clean skin, while salmon and dark chocolate help prevent wrinkles. After surgery, reducing sugar, milk, and spicy foods can help maintain a new, beautiful appearance.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking leads to complications in surgery and slow down recovery, but it can also negatively affect the longevity of your facelift. Smoking displaces oxygen in your skin, reduces blood flow, and depletes many essential nutrients.
