What Is the Right Age for a Facelift?

Right Age for FaceliftThere is no one perfect age to undergo a facelift. Facelift patients are generally in their 50s and 60s, but the degree and rapidity of your facial aging depends on a lot of factors including your genetics, your environment, and your lifestyle choices, such as smoking and sun exposure. In general, most people begin to see more dramatic facial aging changes in their late 30s and continue to lose facial volume, see a deepening of lines and wrinkles, and notice sagging skin in their lower face and jaw throughout their 40s and 50s.

Today, there are many non-surgical options to rejuvenate your facial appearance without undergoing a facelift. You may benefit from dermal fillers or fat injections to help restore lost facial volume and smooth away lines and wrinkles. However, a facelift is uniquely effective at correcting facial aging in the lower face and jaw to tighten and lift sagging skin.

Choosing the right procedure to refresh your look should be done in conjunction with a skilled facial surgeon, who may recommend a combination of procedures for full facial rejuvenation.
