Are you thinking about having a facelift, but concerned that you may be too old, or too young to have one? Perhaps this has got you wondering if there is a right age for a facelift. A facelift is a wonderful way to refresh your appearance and restore youthful radiance. However, there are factors that may determine the best time to have a facelift.
What is the right age for a facelift?
It’s generally best to have a facelift at a time when it won’t be obvious that you’ve had surgery. However, most people opt to have a facelift in their 50’s or 60’s. On the other hand, there are some people that choose to have a facelift in their 40’s, and since the skin is usually still elastic at this time they often get better, longer lasting results.
Having said all that, most plastic surgeons agree that there is no right age to have a facelift, as the decision to undergo surgery is a personal one. Also, there are times when a non-surgical solution may be more appropriate.
If you are considering facelift surgery, it is always advisable to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure, with a board certified plastic surgeon. The plastic surgeon will be able to evaluate the condition of your skin, consider other factors that could influence the timing of surgery, and make a recommendation regarding your candidacy for a facelift.
