Although people age quite differently, there are some plastic surgery trends that are particularly popular among certain age groups. For people in their 20s, plastic surgery is typically focused on preventative treatments and cosmetic procedures that can produce life-long benefits. Below, we’ll explore common plastic surgery trends for patients in their 20s.
The 20s are a common age for surgery on the main facial features. After reaching this age, the facial features are typically fully developed. Features like the nose, ears and chin will be more or less the same for the rest of your life. It is at this point that people may consider procedures like rhinoplasty, ear surgery or chin augmentation. By pursuing these treatments at this age, patients can enjoy the life-long benefits that they offer. Furthermore, they can optimize the distinct features of the face to complement their other features and improve their overall appearance.
Dermal Fillers & Injectables
Dermal fillers and injectables are also highly popular treatments among patients in their 20s. The first reason for this is that injectables like Botox® offer significant anti-aging benefits. The Botox® injections are known to reduce wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them. Unbeknownst to many, however, is that this treatment can also prevent wrinkles from forming with the same mechanism! Botox® injections can produce benefits early in life by preventing wrinkles from forming, prolonging youthfulness well into your 30s and beyond.
Additionally, dermal fillers can enhance the contours of the face by adding natural-looking volume to the skin. While older patients may use these treatments to restore age-related volume loss, patients in their 20s often use these treatments to enhance the facial features. For example, dermal fillers can be used to augment the lips or cheeks without surgery.
Patients who are looking for results similar to dermal fillers may also consider fat injections for long-lasting results. Instead of artificial formulas, fat injections use your own natural body fat to enhance natural volume in the body. Just like dermal fillers, these can be used in the face, but also offer the potential for use in other areas of the body.
