Plastic Surgery on the Rise for Those 55 and Over

It’s true you can feel good and look good at any age.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more patients over the age of 55 are undergoing plastic surgery now than in years past.

The greatest number of surgeries which this demographic tends to opt for are "… surgical body contouring procedures (liposuction, tummy tuck), eyelid surgery and breast augmentations,” according to ASPS President Dr. Michael McGuire.  Men are showing an interest in body enhancements, while facelifts remain a popular choice.



In 2010 alone, more than 349,000 patients over the age of 55 had a cosmetic surgical procedure.  Most popular among these procedures were:

- Blepharoplasty (over 100,000)
- Facelift (over 74,000 procedures performed on this age group)
- Brow lift (over 23,000 performed)
- Rhinoplasty (over 24,000 performed)

Many Baby Boomers continue to have plastic surgery procedures performed and enjoy the positive effects from their surgical experience. To schedule your appointment with one of the board certified plastic surgeons at Aesthetic Surgical Images, Contact Us today!
