Facelift- Now or Later: How to Know When You May Be Ready for a Facelift

How soon is too soon for a facelift? Many men and women want to look younger, but are unsure if the timing is right for a facelift. This guide will help you determine if you’re ready for a facelift, and if not, explore some of your other rejuvenation options. It’s never too early, or too late, to look your best.

Signs You May Be Ready for a Facelift

A facelift provides dramatic facial rejuvenation to the bottom 2/3 of the face, typically from the top of the cheeks to the middle of the neck. This is accomplished by tightening skin and underlying tissues, removing excess skin, and repositioning fat to restore volume and soften facial contours. Most patients opt for a facelift between the ages of 40-60, but the right timing for you will depend on your facial aging. Schedule a consultation for personalized advice. Signs you may be ready for a facelift include:

  • Lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth
  • Loss of definition in the jaw line
  • Presence of jowls or sagging cheeks
  • Facial hollows
  • Lost facial volume

Should I Consider a Facelift Now or Should I Wait?

If you have moderate to advanced signs of aging, you may be ready for a facelift. Patients typically look 8-12 years younger after surgery. For many patients, a facelift acts as a reset, turning back the clock on their appearance. Yes, you’ll still age, but you’ll always look younger than you would have without a facelift. Get a facelift now, and look younger now and in five years too. Why wait? If signs of aging are just starting to appear, you may not be ready to experience the dramatic changes a facelift can bring. Give it time and come see us in a few years.
