What is the Best Age to Get a Facelift?

A facelift can help rejuvenate the overall appearance of the face. However, many wonder what the best age is to get a facelift? 

What is a Facelift?

A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a de-aging surgical procedure that can bring back the face’s youthful appearance. Hidden incisions are made in the hairline during a facelift to address the middle to lower part of the face. This technique that Dr. Holley uses minimizes the appearance of any scars from a facelift. 

Often, a traditional facelift can be combined with other procedures such as a necklift or browlift.

How Long Does a Facelift Last? 

While aging will happen regardless, many patients enjoy the results for five years or more after a facelift procedure. Some people opt to have a revision facelift to maintain their results. 

What is the Best Age to Get a Facelift? 

The best age to get a facelift is in the 40+ range. Having a facelift during your forties increases the longevity of your results compared to those who have a facelift in your 50s. 

Patients in their 50s are recommended to have a facelift with other procedures, such as a necklift, to have the best visible results.

When Can I See the Results From a Facelift? 

A few days after the initial swelling subsides, you will notice the dramatic difference in your appearance from a facelift. Many people often see that the jaw and neckline are the most different. 

Benefits of a Facelift

There are several benefits to having a facelift procedure done: 

  • Slims down the appearance of the face and neck
  • Can contour the jawline and overall face
  • Can appear more bright-eyed and refreshed
  • Can minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines
  • Feeling more confident in one’s appearance
  • Restores facial volume
  • Can change the face shape to be more youthful

Am I a Candidate For a Facelift? 

You may be a candidate for a facelift if you are generally healthy and want to sculpt the bottom two-thirds of your face. You should also be a non-smoker and have realistic expectations and goals about surgery.
