Five cosmetic plastic surgeries that are totally worth it, according to Baby Boomers

Baby Boomers and Plastic SurgeryThe Baby Boomers have certainly contributed to the popularity and growth of many styles and trends, one of which is the extreme increase in cosmetic plastic surgery. Even with many in that age group (52-70) approaching their “golden years” or already in them, they’re still pursuing vigorous activities to help them feel younger longer.

Baby Boomers have changed the definition of being a senior

And they’ve had some help: advances in medicine, healthier lifestyles, better diets and regular exercise have all contributed to an increase in life expectancy, as well as life quality. People age 50 plus have also been fortunate recipients of the broad availability of cosmetic surgery procedures. And the benefits go beyond superficial. Cosmetic treatments can provide psychological benefits, especially for older adults, and have been shown to:

  • Improve self-confidence
  • Increase motivation
  • Encourage increased social activities
  • Reduce appearance anxiety
  • Contribute to a sense of well being

Whether or not you’re a Boomer, you can take advantage of the most popular procedures among this savvy group. Call for a consultation appointment today: 713.271.9000. Here are three you might want to consider:

  1. Abdominoplasty
    A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin and tightens abdominal muscles. But it does more than just sculpt and flatten the area and restore a more youthful appearance. The procedure can also help:
    > Decrease obesity related diseases such as diabetes
    > Alleviate back pain
    > Improve bladder function
    > Reduce itching and rashes caused by excess skin
  2. Sclerotherapy
    Reduced blood flow in the legs and ankles can create purple spider and bulging veins, a condition common as we age. Left untreated, they can become a health problem in addition to their unattractive appearance. Surgery, laser treatments and saline injections can be used to correct spider/varicose veins, causing them to fade and disappear. In addition, cosmetic surgery treatments can reduce related:
    > Swelling
    > Itching
    > Burning
    > Aching
    > Rashes
  3. Botox
    This popular non-surgical treatment can smooth wrinkles by freezing the specific muscles that contract facial muscles and cause them. Aside from cosmetic use, Botox can also be used to help treat:
    > Eye spasms
    > Migraine headaches
    > Excessive sweating
    > Incontinence/urinary tract infections
    > Prostate/erectile dysfunctions
