What is the right age for me to go for a facelift?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
The right age differs for person to person for a facelift surgery. Having a less invasive surgery earlier may mask the time of age! Injectables, Botox, and minimally invasive facelifts can be started in the mid 30s and continued for 20 years. A more extensive facelift (midface lift, SMAS, deep plane, Subperiosteal lift) are excellent for patients in their 50s and 60s.
