Ageless Beauty: Anti-aging cosmetic procedures at any age [INFOGRAPHIC]
January 22, 2013
As we age, our bodies change and so do our expectations about how we look. Young adults are the top group for rhinoplasty, breast augmentation and laser hair removal since body proportions, facial imbalances and clear, smooth skin are their top priority. For those between 35-50, Botulinum Toxin Type A in the form of Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® is king. Women who have had children and are trying to age gracefully are getting Mommy Makeovers (which include breast surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction) and using hi-tech laser, light and skin resurfacing techniques. The over 50 crowd wants to be competitive and are getting facelifts, brow lifts (forehead lifts) and eyelid surgery earlier, rather than later, to get ahead of the aging process and for safer surgery. But that doesn’t mean the over 65 group isn’t growing – plastic surgery for retirees (or non-retirees) has increased by almost 80% in 10 years.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), is recognized as the world’s leading organization devoted entirely to aesthetic plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine of the face and body.
