Do I need a face lift in my late 20’s?
Dr. Dean Kane Q & A
Q. Do I need a face lift in my late 20’s? I have sagging skin and noticeable nasolabial folds. I’m also a bit underweight. Am I too young for a facelift? I’m 27.
A. With minimal incision techniques, patients are entertaining the idea of surgical face lifting techniques at a younger age now, but new non-surgical and minimally invasive options are available to rejuvenate many of these younger patients concerns.
In your case, I visualize some laxity, volume loss and maybe flat cheek bones.
While a mini-facelift is a consideration for those who desire to remain thin with no added volume of the face, I believe you may be pleased with:
1. Deep Cheek fillers
2. Dermal nasolabial fillers
3. Dermal lateral commissure and marionette fold filler
4. ZO Skin Health including retinoids, chemical peels and / or laser to improve the texture of your skin and firm its mild laxity.
It is best for you to obtain an proper examination with a well experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Cosmetic ENT Facial Surgeon and / or Dermatologist to determine what options are best for you.
I hope this has been helpful. All the best!
