In the 21st Century, the evolution of cosmetic procedures has made beauty achievable at any age. In fact, statistics show that the number of cosmetic procedures performed annually has risen by 197% in the past 15 years. Thanks to advances in both surgical and non-surgical aesthetics, men and women can now embrace their advancing years with nothing but self-confidence, because the ticking clock only presents new opportunities for us to enrich ourselves and our appearance. Of course, different aesthetic procedures are more appropriate during different stages in our lives. As a guideline, below are the most sought-after treatments by age category.
19 – 34
By young adulthood, individuals and their features have reached maturity. This is the best time to address those issues that will forever shape your adult attitude toward yourself. Thus, the most popular procedures at this stage are Breast Augmentation for figure improvement, Rhinoplasty to correct facial asymmetry caused by the shape of the nose, and Microdermabrasion or eMatrix to reduce the appearance of imperfections left by teenage acne.
35 – 50
It is at this time in life that individuals are most dramatically confronted with the physical signs of aging. Not surprisingly, the most popular procedures for those approaching 50 are Mommy Makeovers (Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck, Liposuction), Anti-Aging Injectables (Botox, Juvederm, Restylane), and Skin Resurfacing (Fractional Skin Resurfacing, VI Peels, Medical-Grade Chemical Peels) to reduce the appearance of emerging lines, wrinkles, and age spots
51 – 64
Because 55 is the new 45, most Americans are still active members of the workforce during this age period. Remaining competitive is not just a matter of performance, these days it’s also a matter of looking vigorous enough to take on new challenges. Therefore, it stands to reason that Eyelid Surgery, Facelifts and Brow Lifts would be priorities among those wishing to maintain or advance their professional status by returning their visage to the uplifted and line-free look of youth and stamina.
It is at this stage in life that men and women may be winding down professionally but certainly not personally. In fact, many 65+ seniors now have the time and desire to ramp up their social lives or even pursue second careers. It’s also the time when previous cosmetic procedures may need to be readdressed. Hence, this age group most often opts for refreshed Eyelid Surgery coupled with a Neck Lift to remove that under-chin waddle. Also in-demand at this age is on-surgical IPL Photo Rejuvenation to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots, and hyperpigmentation on the face, neck, hands and arms.
So now that you know aging need only be a state of mind, check out the many safe and effective protocols that allow men and women to enjoy a lifetime of good looks.
