Getting a facelift is not directly associated with age but rather with the aging of the body, and especially the face in this specific scenario. Facelifts can be done between the ages of 40 and 80, respectively.
Aging of the face and skin is a combination of changes in the biological systems of an individual’s body along with how well he or she has taken care of themselves throughout their life. Biological factors include the genes of an individual which associate with the way their family has aged; while environmental factors include but are not limited to the UV radiation emitted from the sun and activity levels along with what nutrients your body has been intaking.
Facelifts typically make the individual look 10 to 15 years younger depending on the previous state of the individual. The number of times this procedure is done is dependent on how young the individual wants to look.
While facelifts can have wonderful outcomes, it is important to keep in mind that the face and body must be in harmony with each other. It should be noted that while facelifts take several hours to perform, secondary facelifts are generally quicker. (- still working on it)
