The 30s are some of the most transformative years, and with the common plastic surgery trends we see in this age group, that includes physical transformations, too! While the 20s are often focused on preventative aging and lifelong treatments, patients often begin to branch out in their 30s and get more serious about their appearance. Since this is also when signs of aging begin to develop, patients also shift towards anti-aging procedures. Below, we’ll explore common plastic surgery trends for patients in their 30s.
Dermal Fillers & Injectables
Dermal fillers and injectables continue to play a key role in cosmetics for patients in their 30s. Just like patients in their 20s, patients in their 30s can still benefit from preventative treatments like Botox®. With these and other injectable treatments, patients can actually slow the development of facial wrinkles and folds. In many cases, patients in their 30s will already be noticing the early signs of aging, so these treatments may become more important for this age group.
Other patients in their 30s may have started experiencing volume loss as a result of the aging process. This starts for many people in their 20s, but doesn’t significantly change the appearance until the 30s. To correct this, dermal fillers can be used to restore natural-looking volume to the face. With repeated treatments, dermal fillers and injectables can manage signs of aging and help maintain a youthful appearance.
Patients in their 30s who want to achieve longer-lasting results than dermal fillers offer may consider fat injection treatments. With fat injections, fat is taken from another area of the body – often somewhere like the abdomen or thighs – and injected into the face to produce natural volume. Unlike dermal fillers, which may only last for a year or two, fat injections produce results that last for several years.
It is common for the metabolism to slow as we enter our 30s, which means this is the decade where people begin to struggle with stubborn fat. If you are experiencing stubborn fat in the face or neck, you may want to consider facial liposuction. With this technique, patients can eliminate stubborn fat to enhance the contours of the face and produce a more youthful appearance.
