With advances in Toronto facelift techniques, the average patient age today may surprise you. No longer just the domain of wealthy and famous people, the pulled, “windswept” look of past procedures is long gone,and so is the notion that only old people get facelifts. Results from this popular facial procedure can be extremely natural and serve to make aging graceful, not to completely reverse it. While there is no set age requirement, there are factors that cause both ‘too young’ and ‘too old’ patients less likely to get optimal results.
Today’s ideal candidate for a facelift in Toronto will be between the ages of 45-50. At this age, people are often ready in both their financial and personal lives to do something significant for themselves. As well, it’s said that 40 is the new 30, and so on, so the desire to maintain a young, vibrant look that matches one’s energy, romance,and career prospects is a driving force. Because many people are still fully engaged in their career and dating life in their 40’s and 50’s, they’re not content to allow signs of aging to creep up.
One reason people under the age of 50 are starting to catch on to the wonders of facial cosmetic surgery could be that non-surgical, injectable treatments have also become commonplace for a youngerclientele. Today, neuromodulators like Botox are so frequently used along with dermal fillers and laser skin treatments that graduating to surgical options seems less drastic.
While the skin tends tostart noticeably losing elasticity and collagen in the 40’s and 50’s, those who are middle-aged still have enough tone and integrity to their tissue that it bounces back and maintains results after a facial procedure. At these ages, some people who’ve used injectable treatments may find that they can no longer stave off the sagging neck and jowl area with Botox and filler alone, so they’re willing to take the next steps.
The 40’s and 50’s are ideal for subtle but long-lasting results from a Toronto facelift. A common concern is that having a facelift may create too dramatic a change because plenty of people still want to look like themselves, just a little younger and rejuvenated. When people wait until signs of aging have progressed more severely in the 50’s and 60’s, a facelift, browlift or eyelid surgery can create an overnight change that is less subtle and makes the procedure obvious. Conversely, having a slightly tighter neck and jowls at a younger age will make a less noticeable but long-lasting improvement. To age well but naturally, the late 40’s seems to be the sweet spot for patient age.
