When is the Right Age for a Face Lift?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


A face lift is an excellent way to reverse the signs of aging and restore elegant, youthful contours to your face and neck. Depending on your goals, a face lift can deliver very subtle or very dramatic results.

While the majority of face lift patients are between the ages of 40 and 60, it is important to understand that there is no one appropriate age for a face lift. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro regularly perform face lifts on patients of all ages, as long as they are suitable candidates and in good overall health.

There are several factors that are much more important than your age when determining if it is the right time to undergo a face lift. These include:

  • Your overall health
  • Skin quality
  • Extensiveness of wrinkles in the face and neck
  • Laxity of the face
  • Presence of jowls

Facial aging is complex and is impacted by three elements:

  • Loss of skin tone
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Sagging of facial tissues

While a variety of facial rejuvenation procedures can help you address loss of skin tone and facial volume, only a face lift can effectively correct issues associated with sagging facial tissue.

Ultimately, the best way to determine if a face lift is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our Denver plastic surgery office. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and they will recommend the ideal procedure to address your unique aesthetic goals.
