New Oculus article from plastic surgeon Chip ColeATLANTA, GA, February 11, 2019: Founder and Owner of Oculus Plastic Surgery and Specialty Surgery Center, Harvey “Chip” Cole, III, MD, FACS posted a new blog on the Oculus website entitled, Do I Need A Facelift?” Dr. Cole informs readers that age no longer drives the need.

Dr. Cole writes, “To lift or not to lift? That is the question more and more people are asking themselves when they look in the mirror.” He continues adding, “Whichever way you to decide to go, know this: Today’s facelifts are not your mothers’, nor your grandmothers’. (It was a rarity for a man to even consider a facelift 20 years ago, so I can’t say “this isn’t your fathers’ facelift!)” “And,” says Dr. Cole, “these days, age is not the only reason why one would be inclined to choose to have a facelift.”

According to Dr. Cole, “The age of many women electing to have facelifts is getting younger every year. In the past the average age for women getting facelifts was typically late 50’s or 60’s.” He states, “Today, more and more women specifically are coming in for face lifts in their late 30’s and early to mid 40’s. Men are waiting a bit later since the procedure is relatively new to them.”

“You may wonder what would make a person in their 30’s or 40’s desire a facelift,” says Dr. Cole. He elaborates, “Mostly, these decisions are driven by issues that cannot be remedied effectively by injectables and fillers. For instance, if you have genetically droopy jowls or sagging cheeks, it doesn’t matter if you are 35 or 65. Instead of using fillers which may have a tendency to give a look of being ‘over-filled’, many are opting for surgery.”
