A facelift is something that people of all ages consider from time to time. Mostly, those in their 40’s first start to see the benefits this procedure can give them and those in their 60’s can still benefit from the procedure in order to look younger than their peers. It is important to note that the best way to know if a facelift or mini facelift is right for you is to speak with a cosmetic surgeon about your expectations and medical history.

Does Age Make a Difference for Getting a Facelift?

Do not think that you are too old to get a facelift if you have waited until you are in your mid-60’s. Studies have shown that they can be just as beneficial and safe than those who are younger. Facelift surgery in Houston will tighten the skin on your face without leaving noticeable scars. This helps get rid of wrinkles that appear as we age.

Obviously, those in their 30’s will not have as wrinkles as deep as a person in their 60’s but they can still benefit from this procedure. Their results will be permanent, something most injections cannot give them. Therefore, it is a good option for those who have had injections done in the past but are looking for something more permanent to reduce the number of trips they have to take to a doctor.

Is There a Perfect Age for a Facelift?

In short, the answer to what the perfect age for a facelift is that there is not one. It will change from person to person based on their skin condition and laxity, a number of wrinkles they have, as well as any environmental damage and the person’s genetics. A Houston cosmetic surgeon will look at all the factors that come into play to determine if you are a good candidate for a facelift no matter what your age is.
