How Your Age Determines Your Facial Plastic Surgery Needs By Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery on October 13, 2017

A woman outdoors looking at the skyPlastic surgery needs to be tailored to the age of the patient. We always keep those matters in mind at our Paoli facial cosmetic surgery practice, which helps ensure optimal results and satisfied patients.

We'd like to go over some of the most common plastic surgery procedures for people during different stages of life. This ought to give you an ideal of how the aging process works from decade to decade.

Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery for Minors

While many plastic surgery procedures are associated with anti-aging and adult needs, there are some surgeries that may be performed on minors.

  • Cleft Palate Surgery – Children born with a cleft palate can undergo surgery to improve the appearance of their upper lip and avoid teasing and self-consciousness.

  • Ear Pinning/Otoplasty – Children with prominent ears may want to consider ear pinning, which can help avoid issues with self-esteem and bullying.

Plastic Surgery in Your 20s

During the twenties, a number of cosmetic procedures are common to enhance facial features and symmetry.

  • Rhinoplasty – A nose job can help straighten a crooked nose and/or reduce the prominence of a large nose, improving the overall look of a person's face.

  • Facial Implants – Facial implants can be used to increase the prominence and improve the shape of the lips, the chin, and the cheekbones.

  • Non-Surgical Skin Care – If a patient has issues with acne scars or would like to improve the beauty of their skin, there are many wraps, peels, and facials that can meet their needs.

  • Laser Hair Removal – Unwanted facial hair can be removed using safe laser technology, with results that last longer than tweezing, shaving, and waxing.

Plastic Surgery in Your 30s

By a person's thirties, the first signs of aging become apparent. Certain surgeries can be helpful for maintaining a youthful appearance.

  • Cosmetic Injectables – Dermal fillers and other kinds of cosmetic injections can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles without the need for surgery.

  • Skin Resurfacing – Sun damage, fine lines, and other cosmetic flaws may be addressed through various skin resurfacing techniques that improve the quality and suppleness of the skin.

  • Facial Reconstruction – If you suffer from serious trauma of the face, there are different reconstructive surgery procedures that can fix injuries and the damage done.

Plastic Surgery in Your 40s

By the forties, the common signs of aging begin to show up, including the deepening of static lines and wrinkles.

  • Brow Lift – For forehead lines and furrows, a brow lift is the ideal option. This can help remove those troublesome and worrisome folds.

  • Facelift – Crow's feet and sagging around the upper cheeks can be treated with a traditional facelift. This tightens the skin in this area of the face, smoothing away wrinkles and improving overall wellness.

  • Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery – Drooping upper eyelids and bags around the lower eyelids can be revised and removed with blephaorplasty, making you look many years younger.

Plastic Surgery in Your 50s and Older

In a person's fifties, facial sagging becomes a major issue, especially with regard to the lower cheeks, the jowls, the chin, and the jawline.

  • Neck Lift – For sagging skin around the neck, the neck lift is ideal. This will prevent loose skin from becoming too prominent.

  • Lower Face Lift – The lower face lift is an ideal procedure for sagging of the jawline and drooping around the chin. This can make a world of difference, in some cases helping you look a decade younger.
