Optimal Age For Facelift
Though most people who have facelifts are in their 40s to 60s, there isn’t really an “optimal” age.
The more important factor is that you have facial aging that can be addressed with a facelift.
However, in some respects it’s better to have a facelift at a younger age, because the sooner you address signs of aging, the better chance you have of achieving positive results. Also, younger patients are often healthier, which reduces the risk of complications. Younger patients also heal better than older patients.
In many cases, younger patients can forego having a facelift and instead take advantage of less invasive procedures such as facial filler injections. It goes without saying that older patients typically experience more pronounced signs of aging, such as changes in the lower face (e.g., jowls) and neck. These are often better treated with a facelift.
In some cases, neither facelift nor injectables are the right course of action. Neck lift, brow lift and liposuction are just a few examples of procedures that may be more appropriate, depending on the patient.
