How Long Will Your Plastic Surgery Results Last?

If you’re considering a cosmetic procedure, you’re probably curious about how long the results will last. Cosmetic procedures can have a significant impact on your appearance and they can be a significant investment, so it makes sense to find out just how long your investment will last.


There are a lot of factors that can have an impact on the lasting effects of liposuction. The results can be permanent, but they will vary depending upon a person’s age, lifestyle choices, and genetics. For example, if you gain weight following liposuction, that weight is less likely to return to the sites where you had liposuction. However, if you gain enough weight, it may start showing up in the areas that were treated. If you’re considering liposuction in Santa Monica, contact me to arrange an initial consult to get a better understanding of how long you can expect your unique results to last.

Breast Implants

Breast implants typically last for ten years or longer. There are different types of breast implants, and the implants that you choose will have an effect on how long they can stay in place. The implants themselves will need to be replaced within anywhere from 10-30 years.

Over that time span, you may find yourself wanting to retouch your procedure. As women age, their breasts will change in shape, size, and perkiness. As your body changes over the years, your breast implants will likely shift and change as well.


Colloquially known as a nose job, rhinoplasty results are generally permanent. If you have the procedure done as an adult, your nose will be unlikely to change over the course of your life. However, of course, injuries and accidents can affect the shape of your nose. Your nose may also change about as you enter your golden years.


Like liposuction, the lasting effects of facelifts will vary with each individual. In most cases, a facelift will help you look significantly younger for seven to ten years. That said, the aging process continues even after a facelift. The best way to help maintain your results is with good skincare and smart lifestyle choices.

After establishing a successful plastic surgery practice on the East Coast and accumulating over 20 years of experience, I decided to open a new office in Venice Beach. I'm thrilled to be here and cannot wait to work with new patients in Los Angeles. In my spare time, you’re most likely to find me at the yoga studio. I’m an avid yoga practitioner, and recently completed my 200-hour teacher training through the Yoga Alliance. I also enjoy surfing, cycling, and spending time with my two sons.
