Why Are So Many Younger People Getting Facelift Surgery?
Facelift surgery has historically been something reserved for our grandparents – those men and women in their 60s and 70s who have developed advanced signs of facial aging. In modern times, however, facelift surgery is becoming more popular in younger age groups. In fact, patients as young as 30 – 40 are now regularly turning to facelift surgery to restore a more youthful look. At VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, distinguished board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi is committed to staying on top of the latest trends and technologies in cosmetic surgery and is closely following the rising popularity of facelift surgery at a young age. Keep reading to learn why more and more young patients are turning to facelift surgery and find out if you may qualify for a facelift at an early age.
Am I too young for a facelift?
Most people begin to notice lines, wrinkles, and early signs of facial aging in their 30s or 40s. Because many of these patients consider themselves too young for facelift surgery, they often turn to fillers, injectables, and other minimally invasive facial rejuvenation treatments to delay the need for a more extensive procedure. However, using facial fillers for 10+ years can distort the face, stretch the skin, and exacerbate the need for cosmetic surgery. Because of this, many patients are now considering facelift surgery as early as ages 30 – 40, either to reverse the unwanted side effects of long-term filler use or to restore a more natural, youthful look compared with the potentially artificial or distorted look that other treatments may produce.
What can an early facelift do for me?
Getting facelift surgery at an early age can be a fantastic option for maintaining a natural, youthful appearance and slowing the progression of facial aging. While dermal fillers and other treatments can certainly help a person’s look, some patients feel that adding volume to the face or altering the shape of certain facial features makes them look less like themselves. With facelift surgery, Dr. Khorsandi can avoid distorting a patient’s look and instead simply help them look like a younger version of themselves. Some of the most common concerns that can be addressed with early facelift surgery include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity (loose skin)
- Drooping jowls
- Hollow cheeks
- Sagging features
- Tired look
What kind of facelift is best in your 30s?
Most patients considering early facelift surgery will not need a full facelift, as the full facelift is typically reserved for men and women with advanced signs of facial aging. Instead, patients in their 30s and 40s often undergo a mini facelift, which can be performed using local anesthesia only, or an isolated procedure – like a brow lift, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), or lower facelift. During your initial consultation for early facelift surgery in Las Vegas, Dr. Khorsandi will closely inspect your features, discuss your concerns and goals, and recommend the most appropriate type of facelift to help you achieve the stunning, natural-looking enhancements you desire.
