I am 47 and am finding that my jowls and hoody eyes are starting to really bother me, in your opinion is 47 too early for a face lift or should I wait until my early 50s. I do all the tweakments already so don’t believe there are many gains yet to be had

In your case I’d say it’s less about age and more about whether you’re a suitable candidate for a surgical lift. And if you are, and you’re up for surgery, there is no need to wait. If you ask a plastic surgeon, they will usually say that we should all go for facelifts sooner rather than later, because the younger we are, the quicker and better we will heal, even if the results aren’t as dramatic as when our faces have got older and baggier.

My best advice is to speak to your current tweakments practitioner and ask them to be honest with you about whether you should step up from non-surgical options to surgery.  If they agree, they can refer you to a surgeon for further discussion. It could be that you’re more suited to a few smaller but less invasive procedures – a mini facelift for the lower face and an upper blepharoplasty for the eyes, for example, rather than a full facelift.

I say this because you tell me you already have lots of tweakments, but you must also make sure that you have realistic expectations of what aesthetic interventions– both non-surgical and surgical – can achieve. Explore the options for sure, but if a trusted and experienced surgeon tells you you’re not ready for surgery, listen to them.
