What Age is Best for a Facelift?
Unfortunately, there is no textbook answer for the “perfect” age to get a facelift. Some people feel the right time for a facelift is in their late 30s, while others seek the procedure in their 60s or 70s. As opposed to age, a person’s overall health and genetics, as well as other factors (such as smoking and sun exposure) are actually more impactful when deciding the best time for facial rejuvenation. Depending on these considerations, certain patients may lose facial fullness and/or skin elasticity quicker than other individuals of the same age, causing their face to look tired or old prematurely. Our experienced plastic surgeons typically recommend facelift surgery to address this effect and create a more youthful, natural appearance that can help patients feel more confident.
Ideal facelift candidates generally have deep facial lines and wrinkles or hanging, loose skin around the neck and chin area. Some patients may benefit from including a browlift as part of their facial rejuvenation procedure, as well. For less significant signs of aging, our surgeons may recommend non-surgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or other injectable treatments.
Ultimately, the best time to consider a facelift will depend on your treatment goals, skin quality, health, and the visible degree of facial aging you are experiencing. If you have any questions about your facelift options, please do not hesitate to contact our office for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced surgeons.
