Thanks to healthy lifestyles and better health care, people today are living much more active lives well into their 70s and 80s. Whether you’ve decided to start a regiment to run a 5K, you’re dating again after a divorce, or you’re just playing with your grandkids, you want to look as young and healthy as you feel mentally and physically. We’re seeing more patients interested in plastic surgery in their 60s. You want to feel confident about your appearance and happy when you look in the mirror every day.
The important thing to remember when considering facial plastic surgery in your 60s is to come into the process with reasonable expectations. Having a facelift won’t make you look like you’re 25 again, but it can take up to a decade or more off your appearance.
In our 60s, the lines and wrinkles on the face become deeper and more prominent around the lips, forehead, and eyes. The skin has lost a lot of elasticity, which means it sags more around the neck, cheekbones, and forehead. Many people will even notice the tip of their nose start to droop.
Regular use of moisturizers and anti-aging creams are more important than ever in this decade, as your skin becomes dry and loses its elasticity. Botox and other dermal fillers are another way many people choose to reduce the signs of aging in their 60s.
However, facial plastic surgery is an option many people are choosing. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of people 65 and older getting facelifts and cosmetic eyelid surgery has more than doubled over the last two decades, which just goes to show there are no age limits when it comes to improving your appearance.
A full facelift will minimize sagging and help tighten the skin to reduce deep wrinkles. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be done to take away the dropping and sagging around the eyes. Some clients will also choose rhinoplasty to get rid of a drooping nose tip.
