Cosmetic surgical procedures have a wide-ranging longevity, depending on the type of surgery, the patient’s age, skin elasticity, and other factors. Some injectable facial fillers will last only a few months. A breast augmentation can be done once -- or every 10 years. A “skin only” facelift will last a few years, whereas a more complex facelift can last five 10 years. Because doctors can perform such a wide variety of cosmetic surgeries, on face, breasts, or body, each case can be different.
