Exploring Plastic Surgery Procedures by Age & Recovery Time

Plastic surgery is an effective way to maintain or improve upon your natural beauty. With the advances in injectable and aesthetic procedures, surgery is far from your only option. Below, we will take a closer look at some of the most common plastic surgery options that are available as you age.

Exploring Plastic Surgery Procedures by Age & Recovery Time

Defy aging with these popular injections and procedures for each chapter in your life.

Plastic Surgery Solutions in Your 20s and 30s

The better you care for your skin in your 20s, the less visible signs of aging will be apparent as you enter your 30s. This goes beyond daily cleansing, moisturizing, and periodic facials. Lifestyle choices such as diet, hydration, and sleep are all essential for healthy and youthful skin.

Common Plastic Surgery Procedures

Once you begin to see fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead, injectables are an excellent place to begin. Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane are the most common injectable to smooth lines, plump and firm. Botox can even be used as a preventative measure before lines begin to appear.

If your jam-packed schedule leaves you with under-eye bags, consider blepharoplasty. The procedure takes between 1 and 3 hours, but you will require ample plastic surgery recovery time. You will need to rest your eyes for, at least, the next 10 days, wear dark glasses, and minimize eye strain for the next 4 weeks or so.

Some women opt for a full Mommy Makeover to regain their pre-labor body, which can include a breast augmentation, breast lift, and liposuction.


Plastic Surgery Solutions in Your 40s

Minimal signs of aging may be apparent in your 30s, but between your 40s and 50s, the signs of aging will accelerate. You will begin to lose more of the volume in your face, sun damage and sun spots may become more apparent, and fine lines may begin to transition to wrinkles.

At this point, injectables are likely to be used with greater frequency or in more areas of your face. Crow’s feet, laugh lines, forehead, and upper lip are the main areas of focus for keeping your skin wrinkle-free. As you begin to lose the fat in your face that keeps it looking full and youthful, fillers can be used to maintain the shape that defines your features.

These injectable treatments take between 1 and 3 hours and anywhere from 5 to 14 days of recovery.

Treatment for worsening cellulite may also be desired. This includes procedures designed to stimulate collagen, such as massage. Liposuction is another option to remove excess fat that causes unsightly dimples. It takes just 1-2 hours and only requires a day or two of plastic surgery healing time.


Plastic Surgery Solutions in Your 50s and 60s

If you have not stayed on top of your anti-aging efforts, you will experience deep wrinkles, sagging skin, and skin folds in your 50s and 60s. At this point, injectables will not offer much reprieve, leaving surgical methods as your best solution.

A consultation with Dr. Finkle will be required, but you are likely to discuss options, such as a brow lift, breast lift, tummy lift, neck lift, and facelift. These producers can take 10 or more years off your appearance. They take between 1 and 3 hours each to complete, and require 1 to 2 weeks’ recovery time.


Choosing The Right Procedure for You

These are the most popular plastic surgery solutions as you age, but are far from the only options from which you can choose. A personal consultation with your plastic surgeon is required to determine the best options for you– by age, health, needs and other important factors.

Start by researching your local plastic surgeon and procedures. Come prepared to your initial consultation with your important questions for the surgeon.
