We all now know more cosmetic surgery trends and popular procedures for people who are in their 50s or older.
The ASPS recently published a list of the most popular cosmetic procedures among patients 50 years old and older, based on plastic surgery statistics from 2011. According to the list, Muscle relaxants, chemical peels, dermal fillers, face-makeovers, are popular among people in the mentioned age group.
Muscle relaxants are commonly used for expression lines around the eyes, while chemical peels are great for improving the tone and texture of the skin.
One of the most popular surgical procedures among this age group is a Full Face Makeover, which on average makes individuals look up to ten years younger.
Meanwhile, dermal fillers, also known as “Liquid Facelifts,” offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift, without extensive surgery. These fillers will not get rid of excessive saggy skin, but can make an newly-aging face appear much younger. “These injectable fillers restore the fullness of the face, and many patients find the results to be appealing and attractive,” says Dr Lanzer.
Dr Lanzer is a world renowned cosmetic surgeon, recognized as a Top Doctor here in Australia and is regularly called upon in the media to talk on cosmetic surgery and cosmetic procedures.
Although the famous Sophia Loren has long claimed natural products and healthy living keep her looking good, evidence seems to show that cosmetic surgery is a likely part of her beauty plan. 78-year old Sophia Loren recently appeared at a red carpet event. It has been rumoured to have had a face makeover and blepharoplasty and probably a necklift as well. “Her jaw-line is unnaturally sharp for a near-octogenarian. This is the possible result of a well-performed facelift or two. I suspect that she’s had injections of a filler as well for her lips. Fat injections to her cheeks may have prevented her from getting the sunken look of many women her age. Laser treatments and chemical peels may also play a part in her smooth skin, in addition to some possible Botox in her forehead.”
