Is there an age for having a facelift?
There is no age for having a facelift. What influences is your health. You must have ALL your tests done, EKG, Chest Xray, cardiologic preop evaluation, complete blood work, urinary test. If all of that is normal, we are doing fine. Your weight is also an important factor. If you have any diseases, they must be all under control.
What are the age limits for a #Toronto #facelift?
Thank you for your question. You are not the first one to ask.
There is no set rule for the appropriate age for a facelift. I have done facelifts on patients in their late 30's after a 150-200lbs weight loss and with significant excess of skin. I have also operated on many patients in their 70's who are fit and very physically active.
One has to make sure the patient is physically and mentally fit for the procedure and that expectations are healthy.
Hope this helps!

Age Is Really Just a Number
and thank you for your question. A person's overall health is really the most
important factor when deciding if someone is a good facelift candidate, not his
or her age. If a 75-year-old patient at my practice wants a facelift because
she feels younger than she looks, I will perform the procedure as long as she
is healthy enough to undergo surgery. And, of course, the flip side of that is
a much younger person may not be a good facelift candidate if there are
underlying health issues that pose a risk. Patient safety is always the top
priority, regardless of a person's age. If your primary care doctor conducts a
thorough physical exam and clears you for cosmetic surgery, then go ahead and
schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
It's Not About Age -- It's About Health
There is no upper or lower age
limit for facelift procedures. As long as the person is healthy, she or he can
undergo the procedure without any difficulties. Younger patients may heal a
little more quickly than older ones. Younger patients may have significant
signs of aging, which can be treated with these procedures as well, and there
are younger patients who are not candidates for the procedure if they
significant health issues. So the general rule is that if you are healthy, then
you should be able to undergo the procedure. Thanks for your question.
Contrary to popular belief,
chronological age is actually not very important when it comes to plastic
surgery. Overall health status is a far more important consideration. Patients
of virtually any age should be healthy enough to be anesthetized and should be
free of any medical conditions that could affect either your surgery or the
healing process. It's also worth noting that patients with advanced signs of
aging, such as very deep lines and wrinkles or severe skin laxity, may not get
the results they want. However, significant improvement is still possible. I
hope this helped to clear things up!
Age limit for facelift surgery
There is no strict rule as far as age limitations for facelift surgery. On the lower side, a facelift is performed once someone has the physical signs of aging which a facelift corrects. This includes hanging jowls and a hanging neck. If you don't have those signs of aging then their is no need for a facelift.
On the higher side, the limitation is not the number of your age, but the health of the individual. As long as you are healthy and can undergo an elective surgical procedure then a facelift may be possible.
Soeak to to your primary care physician or cardiologist and plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate.
Age limit for a facelift?
There is no strict age limit for a facelift. More important in consideration for a facelift is the overall health of the patient considering this procedure. With our ever-increasing emphasis on optimizing our health with a good diet, weight control, and exercise, many people in their 70's and 80's are extremely healthy, have no systemic illness, and take no medications. They are in good shape to undergo a surgical procedure and their risk for complications are not increased just because of their age. Likewise, there are younger people that are not candidates for this type of procedure because of other health issues that would increase their risk for untoward outcomes. Thank you for a great question!
The most important thing is doing a facelift safely and this can only be determined by seeing you in consultation. It is important to see a board certified plastic surgeon so you can discuss safety in person. Good luck, MMT
What is the age limit on facelift?
There is not a specific age - there are many healthy octogenarians that are great candidates for facelift, while there are plenty of 55 year old people that are unfit for surgery. Your suitability for surgery from a safety as well as cosmetic standpoint will all be determined during your consultation. Good luck!
There is no ideal age for any type of elective
surgery.The desire and
age of facial rejuvenation is not determined so much by your
age, but your
genetics and health.
A correctly performed facelift will last up to 10 years or longer. You will
results if done in the hands of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with
expertise in facial
rejuvenation and one who understands the science of aging.
