When is the best age for facial rejuvenation? This is a common question for facial plastic surgeons, but it is one without a concrete answer. The right time to start depends on how fast or slow you age and when signs of getting older start to authentically bother you. It can also vary based on the procedure — facelifts are meant to address more profound signs of aging than non-surgical skin tightening.
So, rather than focus on when you should start, let’s look at some options that are great for each decade of life from your 40s through your 60s.
In Your 40s
For most people, signs of aging start to show somewhere between the ages of 35 and 40.
Pregnancy affects every woman’s body differently, but there is no doubt that it can leave lasting effects. While diet and exercise can often help you return to your pre-pregnancy body weight, it isn’t always enough to restore your waistline and pre-pregnancy curves. To address abdominal changes, a tummy tuck is often your best option, but is it all you really need to reach your goals? Are you better choosing a tummy tuck or mommy makeover? The answer depends on your individual needs.
When a Tummy Tuck is the Only Procedure You Need
If you have had children or experienced significant weight loss, chances are you have weakened stomach muscles, excess fat and excess skin around your middle.
When you’re young, even a long, wild night doesn’t leave you looking tired. But a few years later, you can wake up well rested and still look exhausted. What gives?
In most cases, it’s your eyelids.
As you age, your eyelid shape can change due to age, sun damage, genetics and more. They can droop and become puffy and wrinkle. Usually, these changes are just cosmetic concerns, but in some cases, your eyelids can start to limit your field of vision. No matter the situation, blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is an excellent long-term solution.
