What’s the Right Age to Start Getting Cosmetic Surgeries

The truth is we’ve heard many people say, “I’m too young for plastic surgery,” while so many others say, “I’m too old for that!”

At What Age Should I Start Getting Cosmetic Surgery?

There is no perfect age to go under the knife because everyone ages differently. But it’s recommended not to wait until you have suffered severe facial aging to get surgery. This will reduce your chances of getting the best results. There are several reasons you will be able to get better results if you get facial cosmetic surgery earlier rather than later.

Most people will start to have noticeable facial changes during their early 30s. These changes will continue to progress during a person’s 40s and 50s, and beyond. Facial volume loss, skin folds and facial lines can cause progressive, permanent changes in the skin that can be difficult to correct. You can prevent these changes by getting Botox injections, facial fillers, laser skin resurfacing, or a Facelift while you are in your 40s or 50s.

People in their 40s and 50s are typically healthier than those who are in their 60s and 70s. That is why they are often better candidates for elective surgeries. Younger people also tend to have an easier time recovering.

People who are in their 40s and 50s typically spend more time pursuing their careers and have more active social lives. Correcting the signs of aging in your 40s and 50s will allow you to continue to look your best as you age. Getting an early start at addressing the effects of aging can allow a person to maintain a youthful look over time, rather than trying to restore a youthful look once it has been lost.

At Youthful Reflections we understand that every person is unique and may have different concerns. It is important to tell Dr. Boggess exactly what you want changed. There are a number of things we may recommend. We may not recommend doing anything right now. We may also recommend that you get facial fillers versus a facelift.

The right age to get a procedure is when you start to notice changes. We can perform both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. In addition to a Facelift and facial fillers, we can perform CO2 laser resurfacing, brow lift, an upper eyelid lift or a lower eyelid lift. A consultation with Dr. Boggess will help you plan which procedures are best done now and which will be planned for the future.
