Facelift in the 40s
More people in their 40s are considering plastic surgery to maintain a youthful appearance. Instead of waiting for their face to look older to seek a facelift, many men and women are choosing to address aging changes in the earlier stages. At LM Medical NYC, our world-class facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Lesley Rabach, offers facelift surgery options for people at different stages in their life.

Most people in their 40s do not require a complete facelift. However, changes are occurring in the face. The skin begins losing its elasticity in the late 20s or early 30s, allowing it to stretch and sag slightly. Even the fatty tissue and muscle under the skin may begin to lose its firmness. While heavy jowls may not appear yet, the beginning stages of sagging in the lower cheeks, jowls and jawline can appear. A facelift in your 40s can slow the aging process and help you maintain a more youthful appearance.
A Mini Facelift in Your 40s
Dr. Lesley specializes in only the face – she is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who is among the best in her field. If you want to address aging issues early and maintain a natural, youthful appearance, a mini facelift may be your best option. A mini facelift can tighten and remove loose skin, as well as elevate the facial muscles and tissue in the lower face. However, the procedure is not as invasive, and often a short scar technique can be used. This can eliminate the long scar behind the ear that is used for facelifts performed on older individuals, creating a more discreet appearance. The recovery time is also shorter than a traditional facelift.
You can look youthful and vibrant longer with the advanced options in facelift surgeries. If you are in your 40s and want to maintain a more youthful look as you head toward 50 and beyond, contact us at LM Medical NYC. We can schedule a consultation with Dr. Lesley to discuss the many types of facial rejuvenation options available, including a facelift in your 40s.
