Why Facelifts Are Growing More Popular With Younger People

Though the idea of getting a facelift in your early to mid-30s or 40s might sound extreme, Dr. Desman is seeing an increasing trend of younger patients seeking this surgery at his Northern Virginia practice. If you’re a younger person considering having a facelift done, what benefits can you look forward to?

A Shorter Recovery Period

In general, younger, healthier patients with more elastic skin tend to bounce back more quickly from surgery. By getting a facelift to preserve your youth, you will heal rapidly and be able to return to your usual activities before you know it. Your family, co-workers, and other people who rely on you will benefit from your renewed enthusiasm for life.

More Time to Enjoy Excellent Results

While a facelift can’t stop aging, it can take years off your appearance. By having this surgery at a younger age, you can enjoy a long-term correction to your premature aging concerns such as sagging skin and jowls. Modern facelift techniques result in a beautiful, natural-looking appearance, a marked improvement over the “wind-tunnel” look associated with facelift surgeries of the past.

Convenient for Your Busy Lifestyle

You may already be relying on non-surgical solutions like fillers and neuromodulators to smooth fine lines and minimize wrinkles. However, if you’re familiar with these solutions, you probably already know that maintaining your gorgeous results requires you to return to the clinic for periodic touch-up treatments. With a facelift, Dr. Desman can provide you with long-lasting enhancements that won’t need much extra upkeep.

Customized Options

If you’re only experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity, you’re likely an ideal candidate for a mini facelift. This surgery is an excellent choice for younger patients who don’t have pronounced jowls or sagging but who still want to turn back the clock. For these people, a mini lift provides many of the same subtly natural benefits as a full facelift. There’s also less downtime associated with this procedure, meaning you can jump back into your daily routine with minimal disruptions.

Look to the Future

Many people consider their 30s and 40s to be the prime of their lives. Getting a facelift as a younger person could give you a competitive edge in your career or help you find a new romance. When you look as fresh and vibrant on the outside as you feel on the inside, it can go a long way toward revitalizing your personal and professional life. Having a facelift at an earlier age could help make your future brighter during this productive period.
