Facelift: Am I Too Young or Too Old?

You may have considered a facelift but are wondering if you are too old or too young for the procedure.  You may be seeing jowls or under-eye bags and are wondering if a facial procedure might be right for you.  Youthful Reflections would like to provide you with some information to help with your decision to undergo a facial rejuvenation procedure to feel vibrant and beautiful again.

Too Old or Too Young?

Your decision to undergo facial rejuvenation is a personal one that can vary for each individual.  Aging of the face can depend on many factors, including smoke exposure, sun exposure, skin elasticity, and genetic factors that might influence the aging and condition of your skin.

With advancing age, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, midface volume loss, and loss of skin elasticity can lead to laxity of the skin and soft tissues of the face and neck, resulting in sagging along the jawline and neck and deepening of the nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the mouth.  People in their mid-40’s and early 50’s can certainly consider a facelift, as the aging changes of the face and neck are becoming visibly apparent during these decades of life. Those in their 60’s and even 70’s who are in good health can also consider this option. The typical facelift results last from seven to ten years, so having the first procedure in your mid-40’s or early 50’s, before the aging changes of the face and neck have become too advanced, is advisable. A refresher might then be a choice when you reach your middle or late 60’s, in order to maintain a youthful look in the later years of life.

Those of you in the entertainment industry might opt for an earlier procedure to ensure that your appeal and vibrant look remains as you perform before an audience.
