According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients age 55 and older underwent 50,000 more cosmetic procedures in 2018 compared to 2017. The team at the ASPS notes that this was likely the result of more baby boomers getting divorced an re-entering the dating scene. This just goes to show that while pre-juvenation procedures are popular with millennials, it is never too late to experience the benefits of cosmetic rejuvenation.
With this in mind, Dr. Paul Pin and the team at his Dallas, TX plastic surgery center would like to go over a few popular cosmetic procedures for baby boomers. These anti-aging treatments can reduce wrinkles and improve body contour and appearance in dramatic ways.
Facial Surgery Procedures
Lines, wrinkles, and sagging of the face can leave you looking much older than you feel. That’s why many baby boomers undergo facial lifts, such as the traditional facelift, a brow lift, or upper and lower blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Many baby boomers also consider rhinoplasty (nose job) to help reduce flaws that could seriously affect the nose.
While facial plastic surgery is effective, we find that more and more patients are undergoing non-surgical rejuvenation using injectables. BOTOX injections are especially effective at reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers can help with static lines and creases of the face, adding volume and suppleness.
Breast Enhancement Surgery
There are many cosmetic surgeries to enlarge and enhance the breasts, which means numerous options for patients depending on their needs. Breast augmentation can use silicone or saline implants to increase breast size. Both breast lift and breast reduction can help with excessive drooping or sagging. Whatever surgery you undergo, it can greatly improve the appearance of your bustline.
Getting rid of those last pockets of body fat can be extremely difficult. This is especially true around the lower abdomen, love handles, and the extremities. Thankfully, liposuction is an effective option for targeted cosmetic fat reduction. Using safe suction, these pockets of fat can be removed, giving you a leaner, toned, and more appealing appearance.
Tummy Tuck and Body Lifts
If you’ve lost a lot of weight, you may have loose or sagging skin around your abdomen. Body contouring surgery is ideal for getting rid of the unwanted flab and sagging all over your body. A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is great for drooping along the lower abdomen, while an arm lift (brachioplasty) or a thigh lift (thighplasty) works wonders for the extremities.
Since many women experience changes to their figure following pregnancy and childbirth, there’s even a specially tailored body lift treatments known as the mommy makeover (mommy-plasty). This can help restore a mother’s body to the way it looked before having children.
Developing Treatments Just for You
As you can see, there are plenty of ways that we can enhance your appearance. Whether you’re a man over 50 or a woman, it’s just a matter of making sure you undergo the ideal kind of procedures for your needs.
During the consultation process, we can talk about your goals, the pros and cons of various cosmetic procedures, and develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. Custom care with a deep sense of understanding lead to the best possible surgical and non-surgical results.
