...patients will experience the most long-lasting and natural results when they seek the procedure while they still have ideal skin elasticity, which does tend to get worse with age.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, Chairman and Director of the Center for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery, has just posted a new blog to his website that answers a common question that many people have regarding facelifts: what is the best age to undergo facelift surgery?
As Dr. Azizzadeh explains in the new article, while everybody ages over time, each person’s skin responds in a different way. A woman in her forties may have more laxity in her skin than a man in his fifties or sixties. As a result, it can be difficult to suggest one specific age that is best for a face lift.
Instead, Dr. Azizzadeh wrote, he strongly recommends that anybody who is considering undergoing facial surgery meet with a facelift specialist to learn if he or she is a good candidate for the procedure.
For people who are still quite young, Dr. Azizzadeh said a non-invasive rejuvenation procedure like the liquid facelift or Ulthera skin tightening is often the best approach to take. This can be an ideal solution for people in their twenties and thirties whose bodies are still making collagen, and are experiencing only slight skin laxity.
For elderly patients who may think they are too old to have a face lift, Dr. Azizzadeh offers reassurance.
“There really is no age limit for undergoing facelift surgery,” he wrote, adding that he has actually seen a steady increase in older patients seeking cosmetic procedures.
“Healthy, active people in their 70s and 80s want to look as young as they feel so they are looking to cosmetic surgery to turn back the hands of time. However, patients will experience the most long-lasting and natural results when they seek the procedure while they still have ideal skin elasticity, which does tend to get worse with age.”
As Dr. Azizzadeh noted, the most important factor in determining if a person is a good candidate for a face lift is his or her overall health. If the patient is having quite a bit of skin laxity but is in good health, he or she may very well be a candidate for the procedure, despite advancing age.
