3 Ways to Tell If a Facelift Is Right For You

Are you looking for a way to naturally rejuvenate your facial appearance? Here’s how to know whether you are a good candidate for a facelift. 

One of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Canada, and around the world, is a facelift surgery. When performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, it’s a safe and effective way to restore a more natural and rejuvenated appearance to your face.

Facelifts are often used to address concerns such as:

  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Jowls
  • Loss of chin and neck contours
  • Nose and mouth lines
  • Loss of facial muscle and tone

Age and Facelifts: What You Need to Know

Unlike what most patients believe, there is no magic age when it comes to facelift surgery. Deciding on whether this procedure is right for you depends highly on how you feel about yourself within your age category.

Typically: You should be between the ages of 35-65 years old for a facelift surgery. Most plastic surgeons agree that the optimal age is between 45-50 years old.

You may want to consider:

Patients choose to undergo facelifts to preserve and maintain their facial appearance, so the sooner your signs of aging are addressed, the more natural, satisfactory, and longer-lasting your results will be.

Tip: Older patients with significant signs of facial aging can end up with extremely noticeable results that appear less natural, and this is not always desirable.


3 Factors Apart From Age That Affect Your Facelift Candidacy

Aside from your age, there are many other factors that an experienced plastic surgeon will take into consideration when determining whether or not you’re a good candidate for a facelift. This includes:

1. Genetics

When it comes to how we age, genetics plays a very big role. In fact, certain skin types do age much faster.

For instance, the more fair-skinned you are, the more likely you are to develop signs of aging faster, including:

  • Skin pigmentation
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sagging and loose skin

On the other hand, certain groups of people, such as Asians and Hispanics, have oilier skin and will, therefore, age more slowly due to the extra hydration naturally produced in their skin.


2. Lifestyle

It’s important to discuss the details of your lifestyle with your plastic surgeon during your facelift consultation. This will help them better understand the changes that have occurred in your skin, and they’ll be able to more accurately estimate how you’ll age after your procedure.

Certain lifestyle factors that should be discussed, include:

  • Smoking
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol
  • Exposure to pollution or other hazardous substances
  • Exposure to UV rays

Smoking and facelifts: To ensure the safest and most satisfactory facelift results, it’s very important that you quit smoking and avoid excessive alcohol consumption, and try to maintain a healthy diet and exercise plan.


3. Skin Quality

During your consultation, your surgeon will conduct a careful and in-depth assessment of the quality of your skin.

This is essential in developing the best approach to your facelift procedure. Your surgeon should take the time to determine:

  • The nature of the tissue
  • How your skin looks
  • The extent of sagginess

By gaining a better understanding of this, your surgeon will be able to create a fully customized treatment plan that will give you the results you desire.
