What Is the Best Age to Get a Facelift?

cosmetic surgeon drawing on senior woman face You’ve likely heard the phrase, “age is but a number” and the same applies to the best age to get a facelift. Because no two of the same age will look the same, there is no absolute answer. There are a variety of factors that should be considered such as how quickly you’re aging, how you feel about these changes, and your own personal preferences for your appearance. However, there are a few recommendations as to when the best time to consider a facelift may be.

What Age is Best for a Facelift? 

As mentioned earlier, there is no ideal age; however, many plastic surgeons recommend seeking a Facelift at a younger age, between 40 and 50 years old. This is when the first signs of aging will begin to show. By investing in a facelift at a younger age, the problem areas will be minor and can be remedied easier. Whereas if you wait for problem areas to develop, they will require more major adjustments.

Further, when you invest in a facelift at a younger age, you will be able to reverse those first signs of aging and the progression of aging will appear natural. Plus, waiting until the signs of aging are more defined could mean a more exaggerated difference in your before and after.

All that being said, it is highly recommended that you wait until you are in your 40s before seeking a facelift.

Are You Ready for a Facelift?

Regardless of how old you are, it’s important to decide for yourself if you are actually ready for a facelift. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your appearance, there are a few factors you can consider as to whether or not a facelift would be beneficial for you, including:

  • Loose skin around the neck and jaw
  • Sagging skin around the cheeks
  • Lack of fullness in the cheeks
  • Hollow areas around the eyes or above the cheeks

If you are noticing some of these characteristics and are interested in trying a facelift, consider scheduling a consultation with Chatham Plastic Surgery.
