Age VS Laxity Of Skin
Thank you for your question Nichola. Age is not a factor for this kind of surgery. If you have lax facial skin, lost volume and feel that you have jowls and wrinkles on your cheeks and you look tired when you're not then the concept facelift can help improve your appearance. With concept facelift you will look natural and fresh just like the way you feel inside. There are no bandages, drains and hospital stay but with lasting results of traditional facelift techniques it fits with today's age. Nichola without seeing you in person a surgeon would not be able to access you and address your concerns, this allows them to provide you with information about which treatments/surgery is best suited to the look that you want to achieve.

Mini lift candidacy depends entirely on skin quality
Needs an exam
You will need to visit with doctors for an examination in person.

If you truly need a lower face/neck lift then you need a lower face/neck lift no matter your age.

If you feel you need a mini lift and your surgeon feels the same way, then thats great. We don't determine surgical or other procedures based purely on age. If you have significant skin laxity, jowling and a lift would benefit you, then you are a candidate. If you have very little loose skin then you are not a candidate, and only an expert can determine this.
Ok to have a mini face lift (short scar facelift) at 33 years old?
Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, women look the most feminine, youthful and attractive with heart shaped faces. Heart shaped faces have cheeks that are full and round in the front. Cheek augmentation with a dermal filler or using cheek implants for a permanent enhancement will create full, round cheeks that will feminize the entire face.
If you have "jowls” these are sagging facial tissues and an indication for some form of a SMAS facelift. The underlying SMAS layer, of the face, must be dissected, lifted, trimmed and re-sutured (not merely folded or suspended with threads or sutures that will not last). The excess skin is then removed and the facelift incisions closed.
My most popular facelift is the minimally invasive, short incision facelift that has all the benefits of more invasive facelifts (traditional, mid-face and subperiosteal facelifts) but with these added benefits:
- very small incisions
- minimal tissue dissection = less bruising and swelling = rapid recovery
- can be performed in 90 minutes or less, with or without general anesthesia
- no incisions within the hair = no hair loss
- excess fat can be removed
- excess skin removed
- cheeks, chin and jaw line can be augmented with dermal fillers (I prefer Restylane Lyft) or facial implants
- most patients fly back home to parts all over the world in as little as 3 days post-op
Hope this helps.
