What is a facelift? Facelift surgery is a complex procedure that requires extensive knowledge in facial anatomy, a very specific skill set of surgical techniques, and a highly developed eye for aesthetic detail.  This is a surgical removal of wrinkles, a cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful facial appearance. The popular, also called ‘’turning back the clock’’ surgery helps the patient look like a younger version of herself or himself, the sagging facial tissues are lifted and firmed in order to restore a more naturally, youthful, facial appearance. By removing excess, sagging skin, smoothing deep folds, and lifting and tightening the deep facial tissues, a facelift surgery can help a patient look not just younger, but simply “better.”

If you noticed some changes in the following parts of your face, it may be time for a facelift:

  • deep creases in the lower or middle face,
  • shifting fat deposits or hollows,
  • jowl development or loss of definition along the jawline,
  • mid or lower facial sagging,
  • excess skin and fat under the chin (double chin) or lines from the nose to the corners of the lips (nasolabial folds)

Since the procedure is being done on your face, this is a very personal type of a surgery; it is difficult to decide when it is the right time. What you should remember is that age is just a number, aging is what really matters. Aging happens at different rates for different people. Have you ever noticed that some people always look young for their age while others may look decades older than they really are? Age does affect aging, but many other factors play a larger role, such as sun exposure, skin care, health, smoking and of course – genetics. With this on mind, we can ask ourselves

Is there a best time to have a facelift?

Most often, medical procedure is differed because of the hesitance to experience medical procedure for justifiable reasons, in any event until a critical loss of freshness of appearance influences it to end up a problem that is begging to be addressed. Having the right response to this key inquiry regarding timing is critical. Else, it is probably going to result in an, all too common, mistake.

Most women nowadays know that having facial medical procedure can fundamentally support their appearance.

The perfect time to consider a facelift is the point at which you are getting to be mindful of early laxity of your face. This early laxity is first seen just when the head is tilted down or when you press the skin along the facial structure or inward cheek, and it moves more than it used to. At this stage the laxity is as yet not all that conspicuous as to be seen by others, particularly in typical head position i.e., with the jawline up. In a perfect world, this laxity should be revised before it has advanced to end up as obvious laxity, from which there is no escape. The average patient in the plastic specialist’s office is a woman of somewhere in the range of 45 and 50 years (in men it is typically older).
