What is The Best Age for a Facelift?

If you are considering a facelift, it’s important to know that there is no set age for facelift patients. Although most people get a facelift in their upper 50s, facelift patients can be any age. What is most important is that you think it’s time for facial rejuvenation.

Is a Facelift Right for Your Facial Aging?

Facial aging is a complex process, commonly described as a “triad of facial aging,” which includes:

  • Loss of skin tone
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Sagging of facial tissues

A facelift can correct the third element of facial aging. Only a facelift has the power to elevate sagging tissues to give significant facial rejuvenation. Signs of skin laxity in the face that can be corrected by a facelift include:

  • Jowls
  • Loose or excess skin in the neck area
  • Neck banding
  • Poorly defined chin or jawline

If you have these symptoms of facial aging, then a facelift might be appropriate for you, no matter your age.

Not Time For a Facelift?

Many people experience other signs of facial aging before they are ready for a facelift. These other signs of facial aging can be addressed using other anti-aging treatments that may include:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Dermal fillers
  • Advanced skincare
  • Laser skin resurfacing

During your consultation, your provider will discuss your concerns and help you find the right treatment plan for you.
