More Male Baby Boomers are Getting Plastic Surgery
Sagging eyelids, deep wrinkles on the forehead and loose skin around the jaw line can give away your age. For many middle-aged men, saying goodbye to these signs of aging is as simple as heading to the plastic surgeon’s office.
According to the latest statistics by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, procedures for men increased by 2 percent in 2010. A high percentage of these men were baby boomers, and many are now comfortable with the idea of getting going in an talking to a board certified plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon to improve their appearance.
Many men are now interested in cosmetic procedures that will erase some of the signs of aging with a facelift, liposuction, and other minimally-invasive procedures that help smooth out wrinkles and lines. Botox injections, wrinkle fillers, liposuction and non-invasive facelifts are among the most popular cosmetic procedures for the anti-aging market.
More Men Getting Facelifts and Wrinkle Treatments
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports, demand for facelifts by men increased by a record 14 percent in 2010, while the number of Botox injections performed increased 9 percent. Many men are also interested in liposuction of the love handles, body contouring procedures that help them achieve a “six-pack”, and wrinkle reduction treatments that do not involve any type of surgery.
According to this story on AARP.org, many men simply want to look a few decades younger so that they can compete with younger men at the workplace, and also appear more attractive for their significant other. Some may be interested in a second career, or just apply for a promotion at their current workplace. If you are one of those men you may want to talk to a board certified plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon to get more information.
Cosmetic Procedures to Restore a Youthful Look
Some surgeons point out that not all men need to undergo an extensive facelift to achieve a more youthful look. For many, a combination of Botox injections and other fillers can be enough to eliminate wrinkles temporarily and create a more attractive facial profile. Skin tightening treatments present another option for men who want to eliminate loose or sagging skin around the face or other parts of the body. Thermage and Titan skin tightening procedures are one-time treatments that can smooth out wrinkles and leave the skin firmer, tighter and more toned.
Hair restoration is another popular treatment for the baby boomer generation. Men who are balding or noticing significant hair loss as they get older can help their hair grow back fuller and thicker with a series of hair restoration or transplant treatments.
