What’s the best age for a facelift?

Would you like to rejuvenate your appearance, but you’re not sure if it’s time for a facelift. Since the decision to have a facelift is such a personal one, it’s not easy to determine the right age for facelift surgery. However, there are some signs of aging that patients should look for when contemplating what’s the best age for a facelift.

What’s the best age for a facelift?

Plastic surgeons generally agree that there is no best age to have a facelift, because people age differently, so it really depends on the unique circumstances of each patient. Nevertheless, surgeons recommend getting a facelift at a younger age (mid-to-late 40’s), when skin elasticity is still relatively good, because the results will be better and last longer.

People that have a facelift when they have minor aging issues tend to have subtle, natural looking results since they don’t have a lot of sagging skin, and major lifting is not required.

Rather than focusing on the best age to have a facelift, patients should instead examine the signs of aging they are showing, to assess their suitability for facelift surgery. Age should therefore not be the only factor driving the decision to have a facelift.

Signs you may be a good candidate for a facelift

A facelift is a procedure that is done to diminish signs of aging, by rejuvenating the appearance of the lower face and neck. Therefore, if you are experiencing mid-face volume loss, sagging jowls, and moderate skin laxity, a facelift may be the right option for you.
