Get it all in 24 – You’re never too old to become younger! What’s the right age to undergo a face lift?

There isn’t a specific “right” age for everyone to have a facelift, as people age differently and have different needs and desires. The decision to undergo a facelift is highly personal and depends on various factors, including your overall health, skin condition*, and aesthetic goals.

In my practice I’ve consulted patients (men and woman alike) ranging in age from their early forties to their late seventies for radical facial rejuvenation. What I know to be true is that an “early” face lift is more effective in keeping a person looking youthful for longer than trying to make a much older face look younger. I’ve always said ageing is like a marble rolling over a curve: It starts off slowly but gathers speed
as the years go by. Having an “early” (in your 40’s or 50’s) facelift seems to have the appearance of delaying the speed at which you age. You will obviously continue to age after your facelift, but your friends who haven’t had a facelift will appear to age more rapidly than you as time passes. A facelift delays the acceleration of the appearance of ageing as the “stigmata of ageing”** compound.

Consult with a plastic surgeon you trust and have a rapport with. They will assess your individual situation and help you determine if you’re a good candidate for a facelift and if it’s the right time for you. They can discuss your goals, expectations, and potential risks to ensure you make an informed decision that’s best for you.

*A facelift cannot improve the condition of your skin. A facelift removes excess skin, tightens skin laxity and repositions the underlying architecture of the face.
