Fifty is the new Fabulous…

Fifty & Fabulous

Did you know that Americans between the ages 35-50 made up 45 percent of cosmetic procedures – surgical and non-surgical – performed in 2014?  And it’s no wonder.  Youth is touted everywhere we look. And even those celebs who’ve reached the half-century milestone – Sandra Bullock, Cindy Crawford, and Halle Berry to name a few – look better than ever.

Aging can be difficult for people – women and men alike.  Many of our patients at Parker Plastic Surgery who fall into this age group are currently opting for more non-invasive procedures like Voluma and Juvederm to add volume that’s been lost to aging.  Chemical peels and Botox are also popular options.  And when patients do opt for surgery, it’s most often eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty.  And they are always amazed at how much younger and refreshed they look afterwards.

Our professional society, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), sends us links to various stories that relate to plastic surgery.  In today’s email, one of the articles was about putting your best face forward at 50 years old.  To read the article, click here.
