2nd Mini Face Lift After 3 Years - Australia, AU

Worried about having a 2nd mini face lift after 3...

Worried about having a 2nd mini face lift after 3 years, adding a lateral brow lift this time with the same surgeon, I 53 years old, I had dental implants done with back teeth and had no back teeth for 6 months I don't think this helped my procedure I should have had this done prior to the mini lift. Is this safe after 3 years???

2 Hours after surgery

After discussion with my Doctor we decided to do lateral brow and cheek lift only and not pull anywhere near the jaw. I was so nervous but he reassured me that I would not get the wind blown look. The doctor also added some Radiesse. 2 hours after surgery not feeling to bad but sure the swelling and bruising will get worse will update, very tender around the temple area.

I am sure a second mini lift after 3 years is perfectly fine as several people i know seem to go back quite often for a tidy up.

4 days to go until surgery. Does anyone know how long it will take for both procedures to heal, lateral Brow along with mini lift and some restelain injections. I am going over seas 3 weeks later is this ok to travel long distances??

I had to not have any back teeth particularly on one side for 8 months before the implants were put in and I could see a sinking look especially on the right side, it improved when the implants went in but still there slightly. Should have had the mini lift after I think. The result would have been better I am sure.
