|When should I consider a facelift?|
|Although the average age of when a person might undergo a facelift is about 60 or older, more and more people are beginning to consider a facelift in their 50s. Perhaps not surprisingly, many people do not want to wait until the skin is droopy and wrinkly and there are a number of signs of aging before they get a facelift.
Persons who undergo plastic surgery before time and gravity causes signs of aging appear to age more slowly. A facelift, which includes the neck, will lessen deeper folds, give a stronger jaw line without the jowls, and provide for a more youthful neck. Plus, performing a face lift early a person is able to enjoy the benefits of youthfulness during their 50s and 60s, rather than waiting to their 60s or 70s to turn back the clock. An eyelid lift added to a facelift, plus an advanced skin care program, is often an ideal way to turn that clock back 10 or 20 years.
The key to achieving a patient's desired look is understanding what the patient is hoping for and designing a sound surgical procedure. If you want to know if your surgeon is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, call 1-888-4-PLASTIC.
