Signs of aging are something we all have to deal with at one point or another. No matter who you are, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin will likely make an appearance as the years go by. 

One way to combat signs of aging and achieve a more youthful, vibrant appearance is through a personalized facelift. If you are considering this procedure, but aren’t sure if it is the right time for one, Dr. Ayoub is here to help you better understand what age is best for a facelift. 

What is a Facelift? 

A facelift is a comprehensive plastic surgery procedure that effectively addresses deep facial folds, excessive wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin by lifting and removing any excess skin and tightening your facial muscles. This process is remarkable at turning back the clock and restoring your youthful appearance.

This procedure is highly customized and at Westfield Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Ayoub offers five types of facelifts: 

  • Full facelift 
  • Lower facelift
  • Mini facelift
  • Short scar facelift
  • Facelift with fat grafting 

At your consultation, Dr. Ayoub will help you determine which type of facelift is best matched to your expectations, aesthetic desires, and unique circumstances.

What is the Best Age for a Facelift? 

In general, most of Dr. Ayoub’s facelift patients are in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, as this is when signs of aging tend to become more apparent. However, there is no “right” age for a facelift, as undergoing this procedure is highly personal and can be the best option for those both younger and older, depending on their individual preferences. 

4 Signs That a Facelift is Right for You

If you are considering a facelift but aren’t sure if you are the ideal age for one, here are four signs that a facelift may be right for you. 

You Have Sagging Skin on Your Face 

If your cheeks have begun to droop, you have a “turkey neck,” and you have less definition along your jawline, a facelift is a great option for correcting and tightening these areas, as well as your entire facial region.

You Have Minimal Facial Volume 

Do your cheeks look sunken in or hollow? Losing facial fat and volume is a common sign of aging due to a decline in collagen production. With a facelift, Dr. Ayoub can restore a fuller, more youthful complexion. 

You Have Deep Facial Folds 

Deep wrinkles and facial folds are easily addressed and corrected with a facelift, as Dr. Ayoub strategically tightens your facial skin and muscles.

Non-Surgical Options Won’t Deliver Optimal Results 

If you have tried other non-surgical options to address signs of aging, like dermal fillers and Dysport®, but they haven’t delivered impactful results, a facelift may be the best option for turning back the clock.
