More and more women are opting to have cosmetic procedures in their 50s and beyond. Women in their 50s typically have kids in college or out on their own, and they are focused on their careers as they move toward retirement. They generally feel stronger and more vibrant than their mothers and grandmothers did at their age. These women have experienced the changes that come to their skin with menopause and are seeing the effects of nature in their bodies in a very profound way. They have had full careers, earned money on their own, and have become savvy consumers.
These women are turning to surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to rejuvenate their natural beauty and help them age radiantly into their 60s, 70s and beyond. Along with proper
nutrition, a healthy diet, exercise and proper sun exposure precautions are making these women look more vibrant than they thought possible.
If you are among these strong women, who want to erase some of those heavy lines or sagging skin to reveal your natural beauty, there are a number of procedures that can make an amazing difference in how you look and how you feel about your appearance. Nonsurgical options such as various skin rejuvenation treatments that can resurface skin that has been damaged by age, trauma, acne, and scarring, as well as injectable fillers for lines and wrinkles, can make a noticeable difference after the very first treatment.
Surgical procedures are, of course, more invasive, but they’re able to target areas nonsurgical procedures can’t. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and the fat beneath the surface thins out. Often, these signs first appear on the forehead and eyelids. A drooping forehead and saggy eyelids can give you a tired or sad expression, when that really isn’t how you feel at all. Drooping eyelids can also impair vision. Brow lifts and eyelid lifts are often performed together. Aside from looking younger and more vibrant, the procedures give a brighter, more alert appearance that reflects the real you.
Facelifts and necklifts are other common surgical procedures that women are electing to have. As our skin loses its elasticity and the effects of gravity become more pronounced, a lift that treats the neck, cheeks, and jawline, can take years off of your appearance. A facelift will give you a more youthful appearance while keeping a natural look. A reputable surgeon won’t send you out the door looking like an over-stretched celebrity.
If you have been contemplating cosmetic procedures, but you aren’t sure what your friends will think, remember that the stigma that was once attached to “having work done” is all but gone. Your friends might even congratulate you on your more youthful appearance. Every year, more and more women are choosing cosmetic procedures that will help them lessen some of the less desirable physical effects of aging, so that they can look as vibrant as they feel.
