Timing your facelift is a very personal decision. Most of our facelift patients are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, but you can get your facelift at any time you feel you can get good results from a facelift. You might consider a facelift when you are bothered by:
- Deep facial folds around the mouth
- Sagging skin and fat below the chin
- Banding and excess fat in the neck
There are many different kinds of facelifts that can be targeted to address one or more specific symptoms that may have a shorter recovery period, or a smaller scar. Many of them give more limited correction for a shorter period of time, but might be a good option if you are a relatively young person who is bothered by a specific symptom of aging. For some of the earliest symptoms, too, you may consider skin care, BOTOX® Cosmetic, or dermal fillers to give good short-term results.
The best way to learn if a facelift is right for you is with a personal consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso. During your consultation he will listen to your concerns and goals and evaluate your facial aging to make recommendations for the optimum treatment for you.
