When Should I Get a Facelift?

If you’ve been thinking about a San Jose facelift with Dr. Sudeep Roy, you’re probably wondering if you’re at the “right age” for a facelift. RefinedMD is a revered plastic surgery clinic for facelifts, and has treated adult patients of nearly every age. More important than age is the skin condition when considering a facelift. The more UV damage, daily stress, and effects of gravity the facial skin has experienced, the more signs of aging you’ll notice. All of these stressors lead to deep and permanent facial creases as well as skin sagging.

Is It Time For a Facelift?

In addition to looking older than you are, early signs of aging can also decrease self-confidence. However, a facelift (also known as a rhytidectomy) can instantly and dramatically improve your appearance, making you look years younger. Just think that over 133,000 facelifts were performed last year alone.

The majority of people who undergo a facelift are in their forties. However, adult patients of virtually any age may be great candidates for this life-changing procedure. If you’re in good health and have signs of aging on your face, this surgery might be for you. In particular, facelifts can help with wrinkles below the eyes, deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth corner, extra fat in the neck (as a facelift typically includes a necklift), and a loss of jawline definition.

There are a few different types of facelifts, and you’ll find out the best option for you during a consultation. The traditional facelift targets the midface as well as the neck, and involves re-sculpting and removing excess skin. A mini facelift requires a smaller incision and is ideal for younger patients who want to make their mid and lower face look younger. In some cases, patients may be candidates for solely a necklift (though this is rare).
