There is a common misconception that you should wait until you are about 60 years old to have a facelift. And, while 60 years young is a great age to have this procedure, there are some captivating reasons to consider having a facelift done at a younger age.
A facelift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that targets the cheeks, jowls, and neckline as well as fine lines and wrinkles to give a more youthful appearance. Patients with skin laxity, a double chin, jowl formation, and neck banding, independent of their actual age, are excellent candidates for a facelift.
Having a facelift performed earlier in life, such as in your 40s or 50s, has a number of benefits. Younger individuals tend to require less invasive surgery with a quicker recovery. In addition, many do not like the idea of undergoing a surgery that results in a very dramatic outcome in conjunction with a longer healing time.
So, what is the ideal age for a facelift? Simply put, the best age to consider a facelift is when you are ready, regardless of number. Everyone ages differently, which is why there is not a defined time period to undergo a facelift. When signs of aging become prevalent enough to affect your self-confidence, then it’s time to consider your options.
