At what age will I get the best results from my facelift?
There is no absolute and uniform answer to this question. Many factors have to be taken into consideration, including genetic heritage, lifestyle habits, aesthetic concerns, sun exposure, medical conditions, clinical presentation and much more.
In most cases, patients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s are the best candidates for facelift surgery. However, anyone in good standing health who is beginning to notice the signs of aging on their face is good candidates. Thus, there is no need to focus so much on the specific age, rather, look for the signs of aging to determine the best time to seek a facelift.
Nevertheless, many patients considering facelift surgery want to postpone it until an older age and often consider less invasive options in the meantime (like botox or fillers). Others may wish to proceed with facelift surgery at an earlier time, for instance in their 40s. There are some potential advantages of undergoing facelift procedure abroad earlier:
Women who had the facelift before the age of 50 had maintenance of their youthful appearance for many more years than older ones. When a facelift is performed earlier, patients may enjoy their results longer. Facelift results are not permanent and the aging continues, however, results may be appreciated for a longer period of time.
Furthermore, facelift surgery is performed under general anesthetic and is a major surgery. Younger patients undergoing facelift surgery are generally healthier, which may lower the risk of complications, as in principal they have less medical conditions and take fewer prescription medications.
Facelift always results in significant improvement, however, results may not appear as dramatic to older patients. On the other hand, facelift performed on a patient just in their 40s may be less extensive since signs of facial aging are less extensive or severe.
How many times can I have a facelift?
In theory, there is no limit as to how many times a person can have a facelift.
The answer is really connected to the expectations of a patient and to what he or she is trying to accomplish. After a facelift, it is often that patients become far less tolerant of new wrinkles or sagging on their face. If the facelift surgery is performed well, the results can last for years to come. Some people estimate it between 5-15 years. It is usually longer in younger patients and is shorter in older patients because the skin starts to weaken in general. However, ultimately the decision on how durable the facelift is lies within the patient’s perception of their own appearance. Every patient needs to individually evaluate when the benefits of the first facelifts have been exhausted and when is the right time for a second procedure.
You just have to remember that every surgery needs to be discussed with your plastic surgeon.
Can I combine facelift in Poland with non-surgical procedures?
Yes, you can combine a facelift with other procedures. It is even generally preferred sometimes! It is very common for patients to combine cosmetic procedures ass it has benefits. First of all, you can save money, as you only undergo 1 anesthesia and minimize the cost of the operating room and surgical supplies. Second, of all, you can reduce recovery time, as you only have to go through it once.
Facelifts abroad are actually one of the most common procedures to be performed at the same time as other surgeries. Thirdly, undergoing multiple facial surgeries can result in great results, with the procedures complementing one another.
Commonly combined procedures with facelift surgery include eyelid surgeries, brow and neck lifts, fat transfers, chin implant surgeries and rhinoplasty (nose job).
Surgeries performed on other areas of the body, such as liposuction, breast enlargement, and breast lift can also be performed at the same time as a facelift. However, more extensive and complicated surgeries (like the tummy tuck, thigh lift or arm lift) usually should be done separately.
In conclusion, there is no appropriate age to get a facelift or a restriction on how many times you can perform the procedure. Therefore do not hesitate and contact Beauty Poland team! We will be glad to help you book your cheap facelift surgery!
