Am I Ready for a Facelift?

Has your face lost some of its youthful spunk? Would you like to look younger? For many patients, a facelift is the answer. What age is the right age for a facelift? Find out below and then call and schedule your consultation at Hunstad Kortesis Bharti Plastic Surgery + MedSpa.

Am I Old Enough for a Facelift?

Patients often ask, “What age should I start considering a facelift?” There is no simple answer. Age is a number, not a definitive timeline for a facelift. Some patients could benefit greatly from a facelift in their 40s while other patients won’t need one for decades. Pay attention to the visible signs of aging, rather than age, to determine when you’re ready for a facelift.

Some signs that a facelift might be right for you include:

  • You have sagging skin especially across the lower face and under the chin
  • You have lines around the mouth
  • You have lost definition in the face and jawline
  • Your skin is loose/saggy
  • Your face looks droopy or melted
  • You’ve lost a large amount of weight

What Will I Look Like After a Facelift?

A facelift can transform your appearance often taking 10-15 years off of your look. Think back to your appearance a decade ago… this is similar to what you’ll look like after a facelift. For a more accurate estimation, come on in for a consultation and ask about Vectra 3D Imaging. This revolutionary imaging system can give you a “test drive” for your new appearance. You can see projected results of your procedure so you can decide if it is now the right time for a facelift.

Sooner Rather than Later

When it comes to a facelift, sometimes sooner is better than later. If you get facial surgery sooner you may be able to delay or even avoid a full facelift by opting for a less invasive MACS lift. This procedure takes only 90 minutes and has a recovery time of a week or less with no incision behind the ear. This is a great alternative for patients that want to look younger, but might not yet need a full facelift.
