Is It the Right Time for a Facelift?

Most women today are aware that facial rejuvenation can help their appearance significantly. Surgery is often postponed because of the natural refusal to go through surgery, at least until a significant loss of youthful looks makes it an urgent problem. It is important that we have the right answer to this key timing question.

The ideal time for a facelift is when you realize that your face is lax at an early age. This early laxity only becomes noticeable first when your head is tilted, or you press the skin along the jaw or internal cheek. In this phase, it is still not so evident that others notice the laxity, in particular with the chin up, in the normal head position.

The majority of patients in OKC choose a facelift when they're between 40-60 years of age, but it depends on their facial age to ensure the right time. Plan a personalized advice consultation. These are some signs that help to determine the right time:

  • Wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose

  • Less defined jawline

  • Presence of sagging cheeks

  • Low facial volume

  • Facial hollows

You may be ready for a facelift if you have moderate to advanced signs of aging. After surgery, patients usually look 8-12 years younger. A facelift acts as a reset for many patients, turning the clock back. Your aging wouldn’t stop, but with a facelift, you will look younger than your age. So, why wait? You may not be willing to feel dramatic changes in facial lifting if signs of aging are just beginning to appear. Give it time and in a couple of years come and see our experienced facelift surgeons in OKC.

Quality facelifts avoid the visible appearance of facelift, as skin is not pulled directly, but the inner structure of the face is tightened. This also lowers the pace of future aging, with a further decade, delaying the emergence of evident laxity.
