There isn’t any dead set rule as to when the right age for plastic surgery is. In actuality, when looking to get procedure done it should be determined more on a case by case basis because every person’s body is unique and so is its aging process. There are, of course, age tendencies for certain types of plastic surgery procedures. Facelifts, for exampls, are generally not performed on patients on 40. A mini-lift or laser procedure might be suggested instead, but this is not a set rule either. Otoplasty (ear surgery), on the other hand, is appropriate for adults or patients as young as 5 years old.
