I’m Dr. David Stoker, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. A question I frequently receive in my practice is, “What is the right age for a facelift?” Of course, that answer varies, and it’s broad. Typically, patients who are seeking facelifts in my practice are in their 40s or older, and we do it well into a patient’s 70s if they’re healthy.
We also perform Traceless Facelifts occasionally on patients younger than 40 years old. In the circumstances, for instance, where they’ve lost a lot of weight. If somebody’s lost 100 or 150 pounds, their faces can kind of melt, and even though they’re relatively young, they can look a lot older. The Traceless Facelift procedure can make a big difference for them, but I would say in general, starting in the 40s for most patients is when we start thinking about performing Traceless Facelift surgery.
