How long does cosmetic surgery last?

Results achieved by cosmetic surgery are not permanent! The results of cosmetic surgery as well as the duration of the results vary with each patient, the type of surgery, the quality of skin and other tissues, age and overall general health. 

The results of cosmetic surgery are affected by aging, disease, injury, pregnancy, sun exposure, weight loss or gain, and other factors not related to the actual surgery.

Additional surgery or treatment may be necessary over time to maintain the results of cosmetic surgery.
