Is There a “Right Age” for a Facelift?

If you look in the mirror and see wrinkles, sags, jowling and a flat cheek area, and find yourself using your fingers to lift your facial skin to reveal a younger appearance, you’re likely the “right age” for a facelift because—in all reality—there is no “right age.” Can You Be “Too Young” for a Facelift?

How Old is Too Old for a Facelift?

Men and women come to me inquiring about a facelift at various stages in their lives.
