Plastic Surgery Needs Vary Among Age Groups
- Posted on: Apr 10 2012
What kind of plastic surgery procedures are 35 year olds choosing? How about 50-somethings? Those and many more answers can be found in a recent report from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). This year, the society’s annual plastic surgery statistics show an interesting trend — different age groups are turning to very different procedures!
Here were the top cosmetic surgeries among several age groups, based on the most recent data from the ASAPS:
- Top Surgery for 19 – 24 year olds: Breast Augmentation
As the number-one cosmetic surgery for those between the ages of 19 and 24, Breast Augmentation is a procedure that increases the size and fullness of the bustline. Through the use of saline or silicone implants, we can enhance the appearance of breasts that appear too small or disproportionate.
- Top Surgery for 35 – 50 year olds: Liposuction
For some people, diet and exercise is simply not enough. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes unwanted, exercise-resistant fat from the body. Some of the most popular Liposuction sites include the thighs and midsection among others.
- Top Surgery for 51 – 64 year olds: Blepharoplasty
For 51-64 year olds, Blepharoplasty—also known as an Eyelid Lift—came in on top. To combat the drooping and sagging associated with age, we remove excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. The result is often a fresher, more youthful appearance.
- Top Surgery for Those 65+: Facelift
Many older men and women choose a facelift as a more permanent answer to some of their most pressing facial concerns. Facelift Surgery works by tightening the underlying muscles and redraping the skin around the neck and face. For many patients, this procedure can take years off their appearance.
