Top Cosmetic Procedures Among Older Patients

When we think of the typical plastic surgery patient, we often assume we’re talking about a woman in her 40s.  But, did you know that now plastic surgery is growing more popular among a more mature audience.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients over the age of 55 now account for nearly a quarter of all cosmetic surgeries in the US.  Want to know which procedures are popular among those in their 50s, 60s and 70s?

Here are some of the Top Cosmetic Surgeries Among Patients 55 And Over:

  • Eyelid Lift: Older patients frequently suffer from sagging, drooping eyelids.  Thankfully, cosmetic surgery offers a solution:  Eyelid Lift Surgery.  Professionally known as “blepharoplasty,” during this procedure, we remove excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.  The result is a fresher, more youthful appearance.
  • Facelift: Shaving years off the appearance, Facelift Surgery is one of the most effective and time-tested procedures around.  By tightening underlying muscles and redraping skin around the neck and face, patients can enjoy dramatic results for years and years to come.
  • Breast Lift: Age, breastfeeding and significant weight loss can all cause the breasts to sag and droop.  Thankfully, Breast Lift Surgery can often be the answer.  By trimming excess skin and tightening supporting breast tissues, the procedure works to achieve an uplifted, more youthful contour.
  • Tummy Tuck: Tummy Tuck Surgery is a popular procedure aimed at shaping the midsection by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles.  Our practice also offers a “Mini Tummy Tuck,” also known as a partial abdominoplasty.
