As we age, our faces and bodies undergo changes as a result of genetics, weight fluctuations, childbearing, stress and simply the passage of time. Because of this, adult women and men of every age group — especially those in their 30s, 40s and 50s — seek out plastic surgery as a way to keep them looking as youthful, fit and attractive as possible. The esteemed surgeons at Allure Plastic Surgery of Miami share which procedures are often the most popular among each age group.
In Your 30s
By the time a person reaches their 30s, they are usually dealing with a slower metabolism than they had in their 20s. Even with proper diet and exercise habits, formerly smooth areas like the stomach, hips, thighs and buttocks may begin to hold onto fat, causing unattractive bulges. For this reason, many 30-somethings enjoy the body-slimming effects of liposuction, which eliminates fat cells in the area so that fat bulges are smoothed out, never to return again!
At Allure Plastic Surgery of Miami, we offer ultra-sound-assisted liposuction, using the VASER system, as a surgery option. This procedure uses ultrasound waves to liquefy fat, which is then suctioned out of the body. This form of liposuction involves less bruising and swelling than more traditional body contouring procedures.
Other popular procedures for people in their 30s:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
In Your 40s
Your 40s are usually a time where you will begin to notice more noticeable signs of aging on your face. Deep frown lines on the brow, sagging upper eyelids creating “hooded” eyes and under-eye bags are more likely to develop around now, creating a tired or sad look. For this reason, people ages 40-54 are the most likely to have eyelid or brow lift surgery . Whether performed individually or combined, these procedures will do wonders in shaving years off of your appearance.
The eyelid surgery (or blepharoplasty) procedure at Allure Plastic Surgery of Miami involves removing or repositioning excess fat and trimming excess skin from the upper or lower eyelids, or both. Upper eyelid surgery lifts upper lids, resulting in a younger and more open facial appearance. Lower eyelid surgery gets rid of bags underneath the eye, for a younger, more refreshed face.
Allure Plastic Surgery of Miami’s brow lift procedure repositions a sagging forehead by removing excess skin and then repositioning the brow to a higher, more youthful position. A brow lift will smooth out even deep creases that have accumulated on the brow, for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Other popular procedures for people in their 40s:
- Tummy tuck
In Your 50s
Loss of skin elasticity in your 50s contributes to sagging skin and deeper lines and wrinkles on your face. You might also be noticing jowls starting to form, and sagging skin on your neck (for the dreaded “turkey neck” look). For these reasons, both men and women seek out facelift surgery in this period of their lives.
Facelift surgery performed by the highly trained surgeons at Allure Plastic Surgery of Miami involves lifting and tightening facial tissues and muscles. The contour of the face is adjusted to a higher, more youthful (and yet natural-looking) position. Deep folds, wrinkles, fine lines and neck bands are all smoothed out, the result being that facelift patients look up to 10 years younger as a result!
Other popular procedures for people in their 50s:
- Eyelid surgery
- Brow lift surgery
