Plastic Surgery Procedures at Different Ages
By Patricia Berbari on September 29, 2017
Age affects people in different ways, yet certain signs of aging are more common during different phases of life. Our Gatineau cosmetic surgery centre always keeps these matters in mind when crafting facial plastic surgery, body contouring, and other aesthetic procedures to the needs of the patient.
Let's provide a brief rundown of popular plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures for different age groups.
Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery for Minors
Most people think about plastic surgery for adults, but the fact of the matter is that cosmetic procedures can be performed on minor as well. In general, these kinds of surgeries are more reconstructive in nature.
Common surgeries for minors include:
Cleft Palate Surgery – If a child is born with a cleft palate, a surgeon can help correct this issue and improve the appearance of the child's upper lip.
Otoplasty/Ear Pinning – If a child has large or prominent ears, an otoplasty can help reduce the size of the ears or help tuck them back so they don't stick out too far.
Nasal Surgery/Rhinoplasty – When the structure of the nose and nasal passages cause breathing problems, nasal surgery can improve the passage of air and alleviate these issues.
Plastic Surgery in Your 20s
During a person's twenties, wrinkles and lines aren't much of an issue, but there may be other cosmetic concerns on their mind.
Non-Surgical Skin Care – To help your skin look young and refreshed, there are many facials, wraps, peels, and laser treatments that can promote healthy and supple skin for years to come.
Breast Augmentation/Breast Implants – Many patients get breast implants during their twenties in order to enhance the size and shape of their bustlines.
Liposuction – When problematic pockets of fat do not respond to diet and exercise, liposuction can help remove that fat and give patients a trim, toned, athletic appearance.
Plastic Surgery in Your 30s
By a person's thirties, signs of aging become more visible. Around this time is when anti-aging procedures become more common.
Cosmetic Injections – Dermal fillers and other kinds of injectable solutions can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles without the need for facial plastic surgery.
Breast Enhancement Surgery – If a woman's breasts droop or sag around their thirties, breast lift surgery can be performed to restore perkiness.
Mommy Makeovers – Having children can lead to stretchmarks and sagging skin. Mommy makeovers refer to a combination of procedures that are designed to tighten a woman's overall frame.
Plastic Surgery in Your 40s
Lines and wrinkles become more pronounced by the forties, and sun damage tends to catch up with people around this time as well. This is when facial rejuvenation options start becoming especially popular.
Brow Lift – Brow lift surgery is ideal for worry lines and deep furrowed wrinkles that form on the forehead.
Facelift – As crow's feet and other mid-face wrinkles affect the appearance, patients can rely on traditional facelift surgery to help fight the signs of advanced age.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery – Drooping upper eyelids and bags under the eyes can be eliminated thanks to cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Plastic Surgery in Your 50s and Beyond
As patients continue to age, a whole host of procedures becomes available to patients. The first targets, however, tend to be the slack jawline and sagging jowls.
Lower Face Lift – As jowls form and cheeks sag, the lower face lift can help tighten the jawline chin area. This helps undo the most telltale signs of age.
Neck Lift – When the neck sags, the excess skin can be off-putting. The neck lift helps people experience a much thinner and more appealing neckline.
