The cosmetic surgery industry has in the past been patronized by women looking to turn back the hands of time and the signs of aging that have visited their face and body. Many have opted for one of the most popular surgical procedures available – the facelift and procedures such as breast enlargement, liposuction and tummy tuck surgery.
Not surprisingly men are now getting in on the game as we move into a period where looking good has become acceptable to both men and woman. Indeed many now see aging as unacceptable and don’t take the topic lightly.
Skin ages at a different rate and this can be dependent on a variety of factors; genetics, sun damage, smoking, poor diet and many other influencing environmental factors.
Patients seeking facelift surgery are commonly aged between 40 and 70 years of age but some as young as 16 are opting for other forms of cosmetic surgery such as Rhinoplasty (nose surgery). Many are now turning to non surgical procedures such as Botox and dermal filling as young as their mid to late twenties in order to keep the signs of aging at bay.
It’s quite acceptable for us to get up in the morning, take a shower, style our hair and apply make-up, this is a social norm. Adding plastic surgery or non surgical procedures to this list does not make us vein, it just means we want to look after our appearance and in an age where looking young is in and anything else just not acceptable, this is certainly important.
There are of course certain questions you should ask yourself in case you are opting for surgery for the wrong reasons. going under the knife in order to win over someone you whom you find attractive may be an unreal expectation.
