If a facelift is part of your plans for the future, a new study suggests it may be better to do it sooner rather than later. Researchers in California studied the long-term results of facelifts in women under fifty.
They compared them to the results of women who didn't have the procedure until after 50. They found younger women were more likely to have better results and higher satisfaction ten years after the procedure, than the women who waited until they were older.
Experts say the outward signs of aging may not be as significant in younger women, but the muscles underneath the skin have not deteriorated as much, and can hold the changes from the surgery longer.
The study was conducted by members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
