As we age, our skin and body changes. What worked in our 20’s may not succeed in our 30’s or 40’s. Dr. Lee and her team at PERK Plastic Surgery are proud to offer the full gamut of cosmetic procedures for enhancement, maintenance and rejuvenation of both the face and the body throughout your lifetime.
Different decades present us with different aesthetic needs and challenges. Although we believe true beauty has no age, here are some of the most requested aesthetic procedures by age.
What are the most popular surgical procedures for patients between 20 and 35?
The breast augmentation procedure can improve fullness and roundness in the breasts. According to the ASAPS, breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic procedure for women in this age group.
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck helps trim and sculpt the midsection, removing excess fatty tissue and skin for a more youthful, attractive lower body.
Liposuction is a popular and effective method of fat loss involving the suction of unwanted, stubborn fat cells through a small, slender tube known as a cannula.
Rhinoplasty can help correct nasal deformities in the bridge, tip and nostrils, while improving breathing function and self-confidence in one’s appearance. Out of all the age groups, this is the most popular age group for a rhinoplasty. According to ASAPS, 50.3% of rhinoplasties are performed in this age group.
This surgery is performed for men who suffer from enlarged breasts. It can flatten, tone and slim the chest for a more traditionally masculine aesthetic. Out of all the age groups, this is the most popular age group for gynecomastia correction.
Botox helps you whisk away the wrinkles, creases, folds and fine lines that might be reducing the beauty of your face, while carefully placed dermal fillers will add perk and prominence to your lips, cheeks and other target spots for a bold boost in looks and confidence.
What are the most popular surgical procedures for patients between 35 and 50?
Between the ages 35-50 is the most common time for a woman to have a breast lift. According to the ASAPS, 52.5 % of women who have a breast lift have it during this age period. A breast lift can help restore an elevated angle to breasts that have drooped due to changes in weight, pregnancy or tissue laxity. The nipple is often found below the breast crease. A breast lift restores the nipple to a more uplifted position and improves the breast’s shape and symmetry.
Between the ages 35-50 is the most common time for a woman to have a breast reduction. ASAPS reports that 39.3 % of women who undergo a breast reduction have it during this age period. When the breasts are oversized, they can cause strain on the back, shoulders and neck, as well as chaffing and irritation, not to mention self-consciousness. A breast reduction can help provide physical relief and a boost in one’s self-image.
The forehead reduction procedure balances your facial features and reverses an often obvious sign of aging, while improving your overall facial looks and harmony by making the distance between your hairline and your eyebrows smaller and more proportionate.
Years of expression (and the environment!) takes its toll on the complexion of our face, building dynamic wrinkles between our eyebrows, around our lips and on our cheeks. Botox is a very effective treatment for these, while our dermal fillers will help you bring life and volume to areas that have withered with age.
What are the most popular surgical procedures for patients over 50?
A facelift can improve the appearance of the temples, the cheeks and the jowls, rolling back the clock 10-15 years for a more vital, refreshed look.
During eyelid surgery, low-hanging, droopy lids are restored to a more attractive position, while fatty bags, puffiness and discoloration are also addressed.
A brow lift can help reverse sagging brows that may be obscuring vision, or may be creating an unpleasant facial expression.
A neck lift is performed to correct sagging and crepe-like skin as well as vertical banding in the neck. It is an excellent complement to a facelift and blepharoplasty.
An arm lift is performed to tone and trim the upper arms that suffer from low-hanging skin and excess fatty tissue.
Earlobe repair produces a rapid improvement in aesthetics, comfort and confidence. Whether the result of decades of earring wear, injury, or asymmetry of the earlobes, earlobe repair can restore their symmetry and shape.
