What Age is Best for a Facelift?

Unfortunately, there is no straight answer to this commonly asked question. Everyone experiences the natural aging process, but factors such as lifestyle, heredity and environment can also play a large role in the appearance and health of the skin.

Facelift procedures tend to be one of our most popular treatments for patients seeking significant facial rejuvenation results for moderate to severe signs of aging. Typically, patients are between 40-60 years of age when they request this kind of treatment. Many are hoping to reverse the characteristics of aging, such as the amount and depth of wrinkles and sagging skin in the face or jowls. During the consultation, Dr. Durst will examine the face and recommend a method for the desired aesthetic results. This could be a surgical facelift, designed to improve deep wrinkles and excess or drooping skin on the face and neck, or a non-surgical treatment that utilizes cosmetic injectables or laser skin resurfacing.

For patients interested in preventative measures for the face that can maximize the skin’s health and appearance, our ZO® Skin Health professional-grade products can be helpful. This option can aid in keeping age defining changes at bay, such as those caused by sun damage, environmental hazards, smoking, and poor nutrition.

As there are numerous options to improve the skin’s appearance, it is best to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Durst can evaluate your needs and offer professional advice. Please contact our office with any questions regarding our products and treatments.
