As our bodies change as we age, so do are expectations about our appearance. These changing expectations are reflected in the most common procedures in various age groups, according to a new info-graphic from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
For women between the ages of 19 and 34, procedures like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and laser hair removal are at the top of the list of things to have done.
This is because cosmetic procedures can correct the facial and bodily imperfections. A breast augmentation can help improve a woman’s figure, breast volume, and can help to correct any asymmetry in a woman’s bust.
This age group of women represent just under 20 percent of surgical and non-surgical procedures, but the focus of their procedures are definitely more toward smooth skin and a proportionate appearance.
The 35 to 50 year old group of women represent about 43 percent of surgical and non-surgical procedures as of 2011. They are the largest group for plastic surgery and are mainly focused on maintaining their youthful appearance.
This group of women represent nearly half of all Botox, Dysport and Xeomin injections. They also use skin resurfacing therapies, such as chemical peels or laser treatments, to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other skin blemishes.
A surgical procedure that is gaining popularity, especially in this age group, is known as the Mommy Makeover. A Mommy Makeover consists of breast surgery, like a breast augmentation or a breast lift, and either a tummy tuck or liposuction, or both. This procedure aims to get a woman back to her pre-children body.
In the older age groups, 51-64 and 65+, maintaining a youthful and energetic appearance takes precedence. Using surgical procedures like eyelid surgery, brow lifts, facelifts, and neck lifts, the women in these age groups want to rid themselves of the sagging skin and wrinkles that come with aging.
