Aesthetics have become an indispensable part of today’s world. People of all ages may want to have aesthetic procedures done on certain areas of their body. So, at what age should which aesthetic procedures be performed? Is the aesthetic surgery you desire consistent with your age group? Let’s explore the answer to this question in the following sections of our article.

Aesthetics in Adolescents

Cosmetic surgery is rare in the young population. It is known that this age group constitutes only 4% of all cosmetic surgery procedures performed each year. Most plastic surgery procedures yield the best results when the body has reached its full adult size. Rhinoplasty (also known as nose surgery) is a popular choice among both older and younger patients. Girls typically reach their adult body size at around 14-15 years of age, while boys may take about one or two years longer. In 2013, more than 30,000 rhinoplasty surgeries were performed on adolescents in the USA, accounting for about 50% of all aesthetic surgeries. Male breast reduction surgery is another popular procedure for adolescent boys.

Aesthetics in Your 20s

Rhinoplasty continues to be popular among patients in their 20s. In 2013, approximately 70,000 rhinoplasties were performed on patients aged 20-29 in the USA. However, the most popular cosmetic surgery for this age group is breast augmentation. Both saline and silicone implants can be used in patients aged 21 and older.

Aesthetics in Your 30s

For the 30s age group, more than 1 million botulinum toxin treatments are performed annually. In terms of surgical procedures, liposuction is a popular choice, and breast augmentation maintains its popularity.

Women who no longer plan to have children often undergo cosmetic surgeries to return to their pre-pregnancy shape. Procedures like liposuction, tummy tuck, and breast lift are often performed to give a rejuvenated new look to the mother.

Aesthetics in Your 40s and Early 50s

Signs of aging might start to appear in your 30s, but aging accelerates during your 40s and early 50s. Patients in this age group love procedures that help them maintain a youthful appearance. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is the most popular procedure for this age and is a great way to achieve a rejuvenated look. Some may even opt for a 90-minute facelift without incisions behind the ears. Preventative care at this age can help avoid more extensive surgeries later on.

55 and Beyond

You can still look fantastic after the age of 50. Facelifts are the most popular procedure for patients over 55. Botulinum toxin treatments and dermal fillers continue to be popular, with more than 1.4 million botulinum toxin treatments and over 800,000 dermal filler treatments annually.

No matter your age, you can look your best.
