Whether you have started to notice laugh lines at the outer corners of your mouth, crow’s feet around the eyes, or the inevitable forehead wrinkles staring back at you in the mirror, as you see the signs of aging grace your face you may be wondering if cosmetic surgery is worth exploring. Once upon a time facelifts were reserved for the elderly but that is not the case anymore. Patients who opt for a facelift are becoming younger and younger. In fact, people in their mid-forties often have the best results but the optimal age to consider a facelift depends on a variety of factors. 

The best candidates for a facelift are those between the ages of 40 to 60 with noticeable signs of aging. These symptoms include sagging or loose skin in the face and neck, deep crease lines and folds around the nose and mouth, drooping jowls, sunken or hollow cheeks, and extra fat deposits along the chin or jawline. If done properly, a facelift can help take ten years off your appearance. Types of facelift procedures include a mini facelift, deep plane facelift, SMAS facelift, mid-facelift, neck lift, and traditional facelift. Depending on your aesthetic goals and the condition of your skin if you are in your thirties or forties you might opt for a mini facelift or one of the facelift options that targets a specific region of the face or neck. A full facelift is more ideal for moderate to severe signs of aging that may be more suitable for patients who are a little older. Everyone ages differently and at different rates. If you find you are at a point where you are unhappy with your reflection and are tired of temporary solutions, you are likely at that age, whatever that number may be, to consider a facelift.
