Why Facelifts Are Growing More Popular with Younger People

Posted in Facelift

Traditionally, facelift surgery has been reserved for people in their 50s and 60s. However, facelifts have begun to grow in popularity with people in their 40s and on. While this may come as a surprise to many, there are many reasons why facelifts are the ideal treatment for younger patients looking to slow down or reverse signs of aging.

Bay Area Plastic Surgery’s double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Gray, offers his artistry and skill with facelifts to his Bay Area clientele. He expertly conducts many surgical and non-surgical procedures with specialties in reconstructive surgery of the face and body. With over 20 years of serving his community, he has touched many people’s lives with his compassionate care, meticulous surgical precision, and unmatched expertise.

Below, we’ll explain the benefits of choosing to have a facelift earlier in life, why it’s growing in popularity the way that it is, and also some of the non-surgical alternatives that have also skyrocketed in popularity.

What Can I Expect in a Facelift with Dr. Gray?

For younger patients interested in a facelift, Dr. Gray aims to use the less invasive technique like the Skin-Only Facelift, which involves removing loose, excess skin for a tighter look. The remaining skin is repositioned to lift sagging cheeks and jowls to improve the jawline. This treatment focuses on the skin only for a quicker, easier recovery.

The other option Dr. Gray offers is a mini facelift, which involves a short-scar facelift and aims to correct the middle or lower face.

Why Facelift for Younger Generations Are Growing in Popularity

Work As A Preventative Measure

Many young people are choosing facelifts because of the significant anti-aging benefits they can enjoy earlier in life. Patients who wait until they’re well into their 50s or 60s to have a facelift must address decades of aging in a single treatment. This can lead to longer and more difficult recovery times and less-effective results. For younger patients, a facelift can address signs of aging as they are developing, leading to a more natural appearance in the years to come. When these patients reach their 50s and 60s, they’ll already have begun treating signs of aging.

Provide Subtle, Natural Results

Again, while older patients may choose to drastically rejuvenate their appearance in a single procedure, that doesn’t have to be the situation for younger patients. They can enjoy a more subtle facelift procedure, often with limited incisions, for a faster recovery and a more natural finish. Patients also have many non-surgical facial rejuvenation options that can provide
