You’ve probably heard that facelift surgery is a great solution for people who want to look younger…
But exactly how much younger can you expect to look?
Facelift Surgery: How to Look 12 Years Younger
No, it’s not your imagination: there’s scientific evidence that facelift surgery can make you look about 12 years younger.
In a study issued by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), of 122 patients who had facelift surgery done (average age: 57), the participants indicated that the subjective interpretation of how much younger they looked came in at about 11.9 years.
The study was conducted about seven months after facelift surgery.
In addition to these exciting findings, ASPS also reports that a whopping 97% of facelift patients have said that their results met their expectations. Nearly 90% of patients said that other people had positive reactions to their facelift results.
In other words, you’ll not only feel that you look younger; other people will feel the same way!

When Should I Get Facelift Surgery?
While there’s no right age to get facelift surgery, it’s thought that people in their 40s and early 50s tend to see the best results.
However, you can still be a good candidate for facelift surgery well into your 60s and 70s – it really depends on your individual needs, how your skin and muscles have aged, and your overall health and well-being.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift?
You’re a good candidate for facelift surgery if you have moderate skin sagging, especially around the jawline and in the mid-facial region. Ideal candidates will have the right underlying bone structure to support the results of their facelift surgery.
“Dr. Farole performed multiple surgeries on my over the past 12 years. I was in a severe auto accident and my face bones were shattered. Not only was my function of jaw movement severely impaired, but my once attractive face was no longer attractive as it was severely distorted. I was a male face model before my accident. I had to undergo three surgeries over a 3 year period and each time my appearance and function improved to a point where I look like I did before the accident. I am back to fact modeling and my emotional outlook once terrible is bright. Dr. Farole is a master surgeon with meticulous technique and a great reputation. He is also amazingly compassionate as his hospital and office staff. They were able to control my discomfort very nicely and I was off pain medicines within less than a week after my surgeries. I am so happy I was fortunate enough to have him take care of me. I have recommended friends and family to him over the last 12 years for various facial related problems. All of them have been as pleased as I have with his excellent and precise care. MJF” *
