For many individuals, getting facelift surgery is a question of when not if. If you have decided that a facelift is in your future, remember that everyone ages in a unique way and on an individual timeline. There is no specific point at which it is clear that it is time to undergo a facelift. Nonetheless, there are specific indicators that you can watch out for to help you decide when it would be best for you to reap the benefits of this life-changing facial rejuvenation surgery.
Ageing Signs to Look For
Certain signs of ageing can be valuable indicators that it may be time for you to consider facelift surgery. These usually do not include the first signs of nasolabial folds and the early signs of facial sagging. Instead, you should be on the lookout for moderate to severe signs of facial ageing. Loosened facial muscles, deeper furrows and folds, lax skin, sagging jowls, and sagging skin and muscles on the neck may all require surgical correction with a facelift. Patients should be on the lookout for these more advanced signs of ageing in the lower face. If you have observed these things, schedule your initial consultation for facelift surgery so that Mr Ross can help you determine whether now is the right time for your surgery.
The Role of Age in Facelift Surgery Timing
Age plays an important role in determining the timing of your facelift surgery. A facelift corrects signs of ageing that typically appears in patients between the ages of 50 and 60. Therefore, most patients who undergo facelift surgery are within this age range. However, some individuals with particularly good skin laxity, favourable genetics, and a healthy lifestyle may be able to achieve their desired results by undergoing facelift surgery even into their 70s. Others with signs of premature ageing, especially those who smoke or have extensive sun damage to their skin, may be younger candidates for facelift surgery.
