Am I Too Young for a Facelift?

Posted by Dr. Julian De Silva | February 11th, 2019

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there has been a steady growth in the number of cosmetic procedures done over the past few years. In 2017, a total of 17.5 million procedures were performed in the United States, 2% more than 2016. Although most of the procedures done are minimally invasive, the traditional facelift is also making a comeback, especially with the discovery of new techniques that make it safer and more effective.

This increase interest in cosmetic procedures, which is a reality in the UK as well, is also apparent in younger men and women. Clients of varying ages are seeking out the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery, located in West London, to inquire about how they can improve their looks with the help of expert surgeon Dr. Julian De Silva. Considered to be one of London’s top cosmetic surgeons, he has transformed hundreds of lives for the better using the latest techniques in the field of cosmetic medicine.

One of the most common inquiries Dr. De Silva receives is “what is the right age to get a facelift”? Dr. De Silva’s extensive experience in cosmetic surgery has taught him that there is no generic answer to this question. It all depends on the client’s age, body/skin type and size. Here’s a closer look:

Age

There is no recommended age to get a facelift. Some experts would say that it is better to get it in your 40s when the changes are less likely to be noticed rather than in your 50s or 60s when changes are more obvious. However, if performed by an experienced and highly trained surgeon like Dr. De Silva, facelifts can have excellent results for older people as well.

Skin Quality

Dr. De Silva conducts an extensive assessment of the client’s skin to determine the best course of action. Loss of volume is the main culprit for wrinkles, lines and sagging skin. Furthermore, factors such as the person’s age, lifestyle and overall health can also affect the skin’s quality over time.

Lifestyle

In order for a client to get the most out of his or her facelift, Dr. De Silva recommends staying away from unhealthy lifestyle practices such as smoking, a sedentary lifestyle and excessive alcohol consumption. During the pre-op planning stage, Dr. De Silva discusses the consequences of these habits with clients in order to help them get the most out of the procedure.

Best Facelift in London

Dr. De Silva takes into account all of these factors before recommending a facelift to his clients. As a licensed professional, he ensures that all clients get an objective and appropriate medical opinion during their initial visit. He and his highly trained team at London’s Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery make it their mission to educate all clients that come through their doors so that they can make an informed decision regarding the procedure.

Having a facelift today can be a simple and fuss-free procedure if done by a world-renowned cosmetic facial surgeon such as Dr. De Silva. Whatever your age, Dr. De Silva will give you the younger, fresher look you’ve always dreamed about. It’s just a matter of picking up the phone and booking an appointment today.
