If you are becoming bothered by facial imperfections due to genetics or aging, you may be wondering if now is the right time for a facelift procedure. Every patient’s anatomy is unique and also ages in its own unique way. The difference in aging process’ from person to person often vary because of one’s lifestyle and genetics. This, unfortunately, means there is no perfect time or age to have a facelift. In his recent segment on Ask the Doctor, Dr. Azouz explains that “A facelift is a procedure that is more dependent on what the problem that you’re trying to fix is”.
What Age Should I have A Facelift?
Is there a Perfect Age?
As Dr. Azouz discusses, the decision or parameters for candidacy to get a facelift is less about age than it is about the actual concerns that you would like to address. For example, a patient could want to have a facelift in their 30’s due to aesthetic concern while and some women are in their 60’s and don’t need a facelift. Dr. Azouz says that if you have a gobbler neck deformity or prominent jowls, or you just have a very aged look to your face, then you’re a candidate for a facelift and you can have that corrected. So essentially it is not age related, it’s depending on what the problem is.
What Concerns Can a Facelift Address?
Facelifts are a facial enhancement procedure that can correct a variety of facial concerns that can result from age, weight loss, and environmental factors. Sagging skin of the lower face and deep creases and folds in the skin may only be corrected through a facelift since the skin would need to be pulled taught to have a firmer appearance. Less invasive measures can often address certain signs of aging such as volume loss and lack of facial contours, but occasionally a facelift is necessary for more a more dramatic correction that the patient desires.
