It’s a common question whose answer seems to constantly change with time – “What the ideal age for a facelift?” It used to be that men and women never considered plastic surgery until their mid-50s or 60s. But today, Dr. Voge regularly consults with Wichita residents in their 30s looking to turn back the hands of time on their face. So, what is the ideal age to say “Yes!” to facial plastic surgery? The answer really is, “It depends on your unique case.”
Reasons for Getting an “Early” Facelift
Perhaps you’re a Wichita resident in your mid-30s, and you don’t like what you see in the mirror. The reflection staring back at you is full of wrinkles, sagging skin, jowls, sunken cheeks, and loose or sagging neck skin. You feel like you look too old considering how young you actually are.
There are many reasons that a Wichita resident would consider getting a facelift in his or her 30s including:
- Being a Former Smoker
In addition to its known risk for causing lung cancer, smoking can also make you age faster too. If you smoked in your 20s, it’s likely you look older than your real age in your 30s. If you’ve kicked the habit for good and know that you’ll never go back, you can regain your youthful appearance with a facelift in your 30s.
- Prolonged Sun Exposure to the Face
Everyone knows we’re supposed to wear sunscreen every day. But let’s be honest – how many of us actually do so? Prolonged sun exposure may lead to sun damage, which is known to speed up the aging process. If you spent your teens and 20s having fun in the sun without wearing sunscreen on your face, you might have wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and the other signs of facial aging. These are all good reasons for Wichita residents to consider surgery in their 30s.
- A Family History of Aging Early
Some people can’t help but age early, no matter how much expensive anti-aging cream they lather on their face. It’s just in their genes! If aging early runs in your family, you may opt to get a facelift earlier than your peers.
Reasons for Getting a Facelift in Your 50’s or 60’s
Most men and women are showing the signs of aging in their face by the time they reach their 50s or 60s. If you don’t like your older look, or you feel you look older than you actually are, then surgery is a good option for you.
