Plastic surgery trends may vary from year to year, but the popularity of procedures tends to be consistent among various age groups over time. While the reasons for seeking plastic surgery are highly personal and individualized, the changes that the body undergoes are fairly similar among people within the same age groups. As a result, certain procedures have consistently been popular among each age group over the last several years.
Young adults in their late teens and very early 20s may have thoughts about other areas of their body that they would like to alter or improve; however, one of the most popular procedures among this age group is rhinoplasty, or nose surgery. The nose is the one part of the body that changes very little once you are fully grown. Thus, if you don’t like it, exercise, diet, or changing your lifestyle simply won’t change it. Rhinoplasty, however, will. Young adults may use rhinoplasty to not only alter the appearance of the nose, but also to improve breathing in those with a deviated septum.
Before she turns 20, a woman’s breasts are fully formed in both size and shape. However, many women in their 20s then go on to have children, or they may experience weight fluctuations due to lifestyle or other changes. The results of both pregnancy and weight fluctuations are often unpredictable changes to the size and shape of the breasts. The breasts may begin to sag or appear deflated after pregnancy and weight changes. Like most of us, these women want to look and feel great. As a result, breast augmentation tends to be very popular among women in their 20s.
Once we reach our 30s, the metabolism has begun to slow and hormone levels begin to shift. The ability of the body to build muscle and reduce fat slows and fat may become deposited less evenly across the body in addition being harder to burn off. No amount of exercise or diet will make this stubborn fat budge. Thus, liposuction is highly popular among both men and women in their 30s.
Women are also more likely to seek out a mommy makeover in their 30s if they have had pregnancies and are done adding to their families. With a mommy makeover, women are able to restore their breasts to their pre-pregnancy state, or better, flatten and shape their tummies, and address unsightly fat deposits.
In their 40s and early to mid-50s, men and women begin to see more signs of aging, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and across the forehead. Men and women in this age group are often part of the workforce and seeking to stay competitive against younger employees seeking to get ahead. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and injectable treatments are particularly popular to address signs of aging around the eyes and to address wrinkles, fine lines, and creases in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
For men and women over 55, plastic surgery procedures such as neck and face lifts, injectable treatments, and eyelid surgeries are popular. By the mid-50s, the skin loosens, particularly around the jawline and neck. The collagen and fat stores under the skin also thin and shift causing the cheeks to appear hollow and for the jaw to appear heavy.
Of course, there is no reason to wait until you are in a certain age group, or to worry that you have aged out of a particular group when considering plastic surgery. Regardless of your age, you deserve to look and feel your best. If you have been considering plastic surgery, call Quinn Plastic Surgery today at (913)492-3443 to schedule a consultation.
