As men and women enter their 50s, they may not benefit from the same cosmetic procedures that were effective 10 or 20 years prior. After entering the 50s, it’s common to experience skin laxity, volume loss and lines and wrinkles. In an effort to turn back time, treatment in this age group is often focused on reversing signs of aging through surgery. Below, we’ll explore common plastic surgery trends for patients in their 50s.
The facelift procedure is one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures, and for good reason. It provides comprehensive facial rejuvenation by trimming and tightening excess skin around the face. For patients in their 50s, the facelift can be the perfect option for addressing skin laxity, wrinkles and lines in the mid to lower face. It is known to make patients look years younger, which is why it’s so popular among this age group.
The neck lift is the perfect complement to the facelift procedure. During a neck lift, the skin is trimmed and tightened. Then, the neck muscles are tightened to alleviate the appearance of neck bands. Overall, the neck lift produces a firmer, smoother appearance in the neck. When combined with a facelift, patients can enjoy a completely rejuvenated appearance.
The brow lift is a facial surgery that targets sagging brows. During the brow lift surgery, an incision is made along the hairline. From here, the brows are lifted by removing and tightening excess skin in the forehead. This can help eliminate wrinkles, lines and sagging skin in the forehead, while also contributing to a more refreshed, youthful appearance. Just like the neck lift, many patients combine this technique with a facelift for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Eyelid surgery is one of the last trends in plastic surgery for patients in their 50s. Just like other areas of the body, the eyelids begin to sag and droop with age. In some cases, this can affect your vision or produce a tired or angry appearance. Eyelid surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, trimming excess skin to produce a more youthful appearance in the eyes.
