Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures

Are you warming up to the idea of plastic surgery? Despite the cold weather outside, many people are warming up to the idea of plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgical procedures may they be minimally invasive such as Juvederm or Botox or more invasive such as breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominoplasty, blepharoplasty, or facelift, are becoming increasingly popular .Plastic surgery and its transformative power compels thousands of men and women to undergo elective cosmetic procedures every year.

The most popular cosmetic surgeries can be broken down by age group. While trends in plastic surgery vary from year to year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2012 statistics report shows that some procedures are consistently popular with certain age groups. Here's why.

Breast augmentation is a popular procedure for those women who have gone through puberty: 20-29 year olds. The breasts are typically fully formed by that age, and the size and shape are at a fixed point. Shifts in weight, pregnancy and lifestyle (bra usage) may alter breast size and shape but in an unpredictable way. This is a time when image is very important to women, so they seek larger breasts in order to boost their self-confidence and balance the proportions of their new adult figures.

As men and women age into their 30's, they may notice a change in the way their bodies deposit fat even if their exercise pattern and diet have remained the same. Many notice stubborn fat that is hard to lose even with a healthy diet and exercise. Liposuction has traditionally been the remedy to this problem.

As we progress into our 40's, we typically start to see the signs of aging around the eyes. The skin around the eye is prone to wrinkle and show redundancy. The upper eyelids begin to sag and give a tired or sad appearance. The lower eyelids can appear puffy. Thus it's no surprise that patients between the ages of 40-54 are likely to undergo an eyelid surgery such as blepharoplasty in order to minimize these changes.

Finally, the facelift is a popular procedure for those 55 and older. At this age, there are multiple parts of the face that need rejuvenating. The cheeks lose volume, jowls can appear, the corners of the mouth turn down, the jawline loses its contour, and the neck skin becomes loose. A facelift helps restore a youthful appearance by addressing these parts that have aged including sagging of the neck and volume loss in the cheeks. Combinations of procedures can lift the mid face or cheek area and tighten the jaw line while treating jowls and reshaping the neck.
