Timing is one of the most critical aspects of preparing for a facelift. Generally, age isn’t a primary factor when deciding if now is a good time for a facelift. Still, most patients considering a facelift at our Nashville, TN, practice are between the ages of 40 to 60. In fact, undergoing a facelift at about age 50 can produce the best results because patients’ skin often still retains much of its elasticity.
Excellent candidates for a facelift want to look like themselves but about 10 years younger. They have realistic expectations about what facial plastic surgery can accomplish and want their appearance to reflect the energy they feel. Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Boggess has developed a technique called the Reflection Lift, which he customizes to address the unique needs of each patient. He creates a patient’s surgical plan after thoroughly evaluating their facial anatomy and listening to their goals at a one-on-one consultation.
