Today, most everyone has heard of a facelift– the procedure that can take years off your appearance for a more youthful look. For those who are experiencing signs of aging on the face, like sagging skin at the jawline, in the cheeks, jowls, and neckline area, a facelift may be able to help. However, at what age should you be considering this?

How Young Is Too Young?

In the past, men and women in their 40s were considering facelift surgery for a younger appearance, However, the improved modern skin care of today and the development of non-surgical procedures such as Botox and injectables has pushed the average age for a facelift back quite a bit. Nowadays, individuals in their 50s and 60s, and even 70s are now benefiting from this procedure.

What a Facelift Can Do for You

A facelift is meant to eliminate excess skin on the face, as well as correct deep creases, displaced facial fat, and neck creases. While facelifts of the past often created a “wind-tunnel” look that is sometimes still stereotyped today, present facelift techniques create a natural-looking improvement for beautiful results. There are also multiple facelift options available today including the more minimal mini facelift, and the thorough full facelift. We also, in many cases, will do fat grafting to restore a more youthful contour and eliminate some of the sagging that results from not only loose skin but lose of soft tissue.

Take the First Step

To get started on your facelift journey, you must first schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. During your consultation, the doctor will examine your face and discuss your medical history, as well as your surgical goals.
