When it comes to plastic surgery, there is no age restriction.  Women in their 20s often go under the knife for the same cosmetic surgery that women in their 80s do.  Both age groups are looking for the same cosmetic result – to look good.  We all want to feel and look good at any age.  Every decade brings on new changes for us, including more sagging, wrinkles, etc.  As we grow older, the list of plastic surgery procedures seems to grow.

Every plastic surgery procedure is specifically designed for the individual.  All of us undergo the effects of gravity, age, etc., but not all of us follow the same timeline.  Some men and women have stronger elasticity in their skin, muscles, and so on.

Common procedures for people in their 20s are usually to cosmetically enhance their looks, rather than reverse the effects of aging.  Some common procedures for people in their 20s include:  liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and skin care treatments including laser skin treatment and acne treatment.

The 30s bring on some new additions to the skin and body, including wrinkles and weight gain. By their 30s, most women have had children, and their body has endured many changes.  Metabolism tends to slow with age, making weight loss more difficult.  Many women turn to surgical procedures, such as a Mommy Makeover, which is a customized package of plastic surgery procedures, including breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction.  Liposuction is another common procedure for men and women in this age group.  In addition, skin treatments, such as chemical peels, laser skin rejuvenation, and other non-invasive cosmetic treatments are also common.

Men and women in their 40s and 50s notice deeper wrinkles forming on their face and hands.  Their skin elasticity is reduced immensely throughout the 40’s and 50’s and sun and age spots also begin to show up.  Non-invasive treatments such as Botox and injectable fillers are commonly used to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  Brow lifts, eyelid surgery, and cheek implants are common during these ages.  Men and women also often undergo invasive procedures such as face and neck lifts.

Those who are beyond their 50s often undergo any of the surgeries above.  Again, there is no age limit to undergoing certain invasive and non-invasive plastic surgery procedures.  If you are unhappy with your appearance at any age, there are numerous treatments and procedures available to help you look and feel your best.
