Did you know that more than 6.4 million cosmetic procedures were performed last year on patients between the ages of 40 and 50? This is according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Why is cosmetic surgery especially popular for people in their forties? Patients at this stage of life have a multitude of options available for rejuvenating their youthful appearance.
As people age, skin begins to lose its elasticity, definition, and volume. This is a natural process that people say makes them look older than they feel.
Common areas of concern for those in their forties are deep facial lines and wrinkles, bags underneath the eyes, loose or sagging skin, and a decreased vibrancy in skin tone. Thanks to a variety of advancements in both surgical and nonsurgical treatments, these signs of aging can be treated in a variety of ways.
Long-Term vs. Short-Term Benefits
Surgical procedures often provide the best long-term benefits. Things like breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks and facelifts are popular treatments designed to enhance and revitalize a patient’s appearance.
Many people are not ready for surgery however. For those who are looking for less invasive procedures, BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and other skin treatments offer effective results as well.
