There is no one age that is considered ideal for a Facelift Surgery. Patients can be in their late 30s or upper 70s and still be a good candidate for surgery, as long as they are in good health. Overall, the results of a facelift or facial rejuvenation surgery done in your 40’s or 50s will be more natural than in your late 60s or 70s.
Facial aging changes start to become noticeable in the late 30’s for most people. As these changes progress through the 40’s and 50’s deep facial lines caused by skin folds and loss of facial volume from fat loss create permanent skin changes that are difficult to correct with a facelift alone. Taking action early, in your 40’s or 50’s by having a Facelift or Volume enhancement by Fillers or Fat will help prevent these permanent changes. The most important factor is not really your age but whether or not you have facial aging changes which can be corrected with a Facelift.
