However, the way we think about cosmetic solutions to facial aging today is expanding along with the way we think about how much younger a facelift can make you look, leading people to seek out a facelift at an even younger age than you might think.

Benefits of the Early Maintenance Facelift

There are plenty of reasons to consider having a facelift while visible signs of aging are still fairly subtle:

  • Faster recovery: As long as they are in good health, younger patients may bounce back from surgery a bit more quickly than older ones.*
  • Wider variety of options: When you approach anti-aging treatments in a proactive way and start earlier, you may have more choices available to you.
  • Better results: Having a facelift while your skin still retains some fullness and elasticity may lead to subtler, more natural looking results.*


How to Know If You Might Be Ready for an Early Maintenance Facelift

The early signs of aging can show up at almost any time. Exactly when they appear on each person depends on several factors, including genetics and lifestyle habits. Whether you’ve smoked, practiced good skin care or lost a large amount of weight can all affect how quickly your face ages. Some of the signs of early facial aging include:

  • Fine lines
  • Deepening laugh lines
  • Jowling
  • General loss of elasticity

If you want to find out more about the benefits of an early maintenance facelift, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. After assessing your skin, your facial plastic surgeon can help you decide on proactive treatments to fend off the signs of aging.
