According to a new article featured on PlasticSurgery.org, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2012 statistics report shows that some procedures are consistently popular with certain age groups. Curious what the most popular procedures by age group are? Keep reading…
Twenties: The most common cosmetic surgery procedure in America, breast augmentation is most popular with women in their 20’s. Since the breasts are fully formed by this decade of one’s life (unlike the teen years) many women opt for enhancement to boost their curves and confidence. New improvements to breast augmentation techniques as well as implant materials make today’s breast augmentations look more natural than ever before.
Thirties: By this decade, the metabolism is slowing down. Many individuals notice a change in the way their bodies distribute fat even though they are consistent with diet and exercise. This “diet and exercise resistant fat” makes the 30’s the decade where liposuction is most popular. Minimally traumatic liposculpture techniques, such as VASER® Lipo available at Dr. Atagi’s in Denver, can safely remove unwanted fat with just a few days of downtime and safe, local anesthesia.
Forties: During the 40’s years, many men and women begin to notice the effects of gravity, though it has not taken its full toll on skin just yet. Eyelid lifts and brow lifts are popular procedures during this decade because they can help you look years younger, but don’t pose the recovery time of a full facelift. In other words, the 40’s are the decade for when a little nip or tuck makes a big difference!
Fifties+: For those 50 and older, a facelift is usually number one on their wish list. As PlasticSurgery.org states, “A facelift helps restore a youthful appearance by addressing these parts that have aged including the eyelids, sagging of the neck and volume loss in the cheeks. Combinations of procedures can lift the brow, the mid face or cheek area and tighten the jaw line while treating jowls and reshaping the neck.” Are you ready for a facelift?
