I Am 35. Is It Too Early For Facelift Surgery?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Facelift surgery is not a one-size-fits-all procedure, nor is it reserved for patients in a specific age range. In fact, facial rejuvenation surgery offers patients of virtually all ages the opportunity to address their unique concerns and achieve striking and natural-looking results that can last for years, decades, or even a lifetime. At VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, internationally recognized board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi offers a full range of the most cutting-edge facial rejuvenation treatments and procedures available today. In this blog, you’ll gain a better understanding of what facelift options are available to you and why it may be worth considering facelift surgery at an early age.

How does a facelift make you look younger?

The facelift is unquestionably the gold standard when it comes to turning back the clock and reversing the signs of facial aging. Some of the most frustrating concerns that can be dramatically improved with facial rejuvenation surgery include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Loose skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Drooping jowls
  • Angry or tired look
  • Heavy brow
  • Downturned eyes
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Perpetual frown
  • Hanging skin
  • Loss of volume

Which type of facelift should I get?

Regardless of your age, you may be overwhelmed by the long list of facial enhancement surgeries that exist today. Because each procedure is designed to address a specific list of concerns, it is important to understand which approach may be the most beneficial for you. Fortunately, you won’t have to make this decision alone. During your consultation for facial rejuvenation surgery in Las Vegas, Dr. Khorsandi will closely evaluate your facial features, assess the nature and severity of your facial aging, discuss your personal concerns and goals, and explain all of your available options at length. Based on his findings, Dr. Khorsandi will then recommend the most appropriate type of facial surgery for you. Some of the most popular facial rejuvenation surgeries performed in Las Vegas each year include:

  • Full facelift
  • Brow lift
  • Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)
  • Mid-facelift
  • Lower facelift
  • Mini facelift
  • Neck lift

What is the best age for a facelift?

When it comes to a full facelift, patients in their 60s and older who have moderate to severe signs of facial aging are typically considered ideal candidates for surgery. However, this does not mean that patients in their 50s, 40s, and even 30s can’t benefit from facial rejuvenation surgery. For these men and women, who typically have mild to moderate concerns, a less invasive and/or extensive type of facelift may be a fitting solution. For example, patients in their mid-30s often turn to a more isolated procedure – like a brow lift or a mini facelift – to combat lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and other early signs of aging before they become more prominent. In fact, undergoing facial rejuvenation surgery in your 30s or 40s may help to delay the need for other cosmetic treatments and procedures and may also provide longer-lasting results compared with surgeries performed at a more advanced age.
