It used to be that women didn’t have a facelift until their 60’s or 70’s, but nowadays, women are going under the knife much earlier. But why are an increasing number of women getting facelifts at younger ages.
Benefits of a facelift
A facelift is a procedure that is designed to rejuvenate the appearance by addressing sagging cheeks, jowls, and lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
Why are women getting facelifts at younger ages?
Many women in their late 30’s and early 40’s are choosing to have a facelift, because they are hoping that having one early will prevent the onset of deep lines and wrinkles.
Women that have a facelift when they have only minor signs of aging, believe that it will prevent them having to undergo a major transformation later in life. While they may need future facial rejuvenation treatments, these are likely to be less invasive.
In addition, some younger women decide to get a facelift because they are aging faster than they would like. Many of them have real issues such as jowls and sagging skin, and rather than opting for temporary injectable fillers that typically last for only a few months, they choose to have a facelift, because the results can last 5-10 years.
Nowadays, there are modern facelift techniques that provide more understated, natural looking results that are appealing to younger women. The traditional approach to facelift surgery often created an unnatural ‘pulled back’ look, because surgeons simply lifted the skin and then pulled it back tightly.
