What is the best age to have a facelift?

The best age for a facelift is highly variable, depending on a person's history of sun exposure, facial bone structure and many hereditary factors.  The aging feature which is usually the first to appear is generalized skin laxity in the lower cheeks, adjacent to the corners of the mouth.  This laxity often appears first in the forties.

The next aging change to develop is jowl formation, characterized by loose skin bulges along the jaw line.  Skin laxity in the neck occurs at various ages and to different degrees with skin textural changes, wrinkles and visible looseness.  Each of these aging features can be addressed by plastic surgery and results are typically very rejuvenating.
