What Is the Best Age for a Facelift?Conveniently located to serve St. Petersburg and Tampa

If you are considering a facelift, it’s important to know that there is no set age for facelift patients. Although most people get a facelift in their upper 40s or their 50s, facelift patients can be any age. What is most important is that you have the signs of facial aging that can be corrected with a facelift and that you are healthy enough for surgery.

The best way to be evaluated for a facelift is in a personal consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Antonio J. Gayoso. To schedule your consultation at his Tampa-St Petersburg area practice, please contact us today.

Is a Facelift Right for Your Facial Aging?

Facial aging is a complex process, commonly described as a “triad of facial aging,” which includes:

  • Loss of skin tone
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Sagging of facial tissues

A facelift can correct the third element of facial aging. Only a facelift has the power to elevate sagging tissues to give significant facial rejuvenation. Signs of sagging facial tissue that can be corrected by a facelift include:

  • Jowls
  • Loose or excess skin in the neck area
  • Neck banding
  • Poorly defined chin or jawline

If you have these symptoms of facial aging, then a facelift might be appropriate for you, no matter your age.

Not Time for a Facelift?

Many people experience other signs of facial aging before they are ready for a facelift. These other signs of facial aging can be addressed using other anti-aging treatments that may include:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Dermal fillers
  • Advanced skin care
  • Laser skin resurfacing

During your consultation, Dr. Gayoso will evaluate the signs of facial aging and help you to find the treatment that is right for you.
