Facelifts are not just for older individuals who want to recapture their youth; facelifts are being performed on women and men in a variety of age groups to enhance self-confidence and restore vitality. At Bay Area’s Premier Aesthetic Surgery & Laser Center, Dr. Robert Aycock helps his patients get the improvements they desire with advanced facelift techniques to combat the physical signs of aging, sun damage, and stress.

Dr. Aycock and his cosmetic surgery team understand that the motivations can vary greatly among facelift patients. For some people, a facelift earlier in life is the perfect way to address premature aging and counter facial changes before they become too obvious. For others, this procedure is the perfect solution to correct deep brow furrows, sagging skin, and fat deposits for a dramatically younger look. We also have many patients who want to enhance their appearance to remain competitive and confident in work and social environments.

Here’s a breakdown of the differing age groups of men and women who are choosing the facelift procedure, along with some of the reasons why this is a popular choice for them.

Age 35-50

Women in this middle-aged group are beginning to notice some subtle signs of aging (such as loss of skin elasticity) and want to reverse wrinkling and loss of facial fullness. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, of the 94,247 facelifts that were performed in the United States in 2009, 21.1% of patients fell into this age group.

Age 51-64

Facelift recipients in this age group are attempting to minimize deep wrinkling and creases that reveal their true age. A whopping 58% of last year’s facelifts were performed on women and men in this age group.

Age 65

Facelifts performed on patients age 65 and over can dramatically reduce signs of old age and help senior citizens regain a sense of confidence in their physical appearance. At 19.3%, this age group falls third for most facelifts in 2009.
