As an experienced San Francisco cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Liu and his medical team understand the unique aesthetic needs of patients of all ages.
Regardless of your age, there are procedures to help you look and feel your best. Plastic surgery is not about perfection; it is about accentuating natural beauty and making you feel vibrant and attractive at every stage of your life. Please read the paragraphs below to learn about the most popular plastic surgery procedures among cosmetic surgery patients in specific age groups.
In Your Teens – Fitting In
As physical appearance begins to mature and take its permanent form, this is the time to correct congenital deformities and facial features, such as the ears and the nose. In fact, many otoplasty (ear surgery) procedures are performed on children well before they reach the teen years to correct overly large or protrusive ears. Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping surgery) and male breast reduction for the treatment of gynecomastia are also high on the list of treatments for teens. These procedures allow teens to fit in and avoid teasing and self-esteem issues caused by aesthetic concerns such as protruding ears, oddly shaped noses or, for boys, feminine-looking chests.
In Your 20s – It's All About Healthy, Beautiful Skin
Individuals in their 20s are generally focused on fixing a specific part of their body or face in order to feel more self-confident. Many young women opt for breast augmentation surgery to enhance the appearance of their bustline. While rhinoplasty remains a popular plastic surgery procedure among those in their 20s, other common enhancements include skin care treatments to combat acne scars, poor skin texture and other skin irregularities. This is generally achieved through non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, facial laser hair removal with IPL therapy, chemical peels and scar revision procedures.
In Your 40s – Feeling Attractive, Vibrant and Desired
The 40s are all about preventing premature aging and restoring the figure after pregnancy, weight gain or weight loss. This age group is usually the most aggressive when it comes to cosmetic surgery procedures.
Mommy makeover surgery, liposuction, breast lift, tummy tuck, and post-bariatric body contouring help individuals in their 40s restore their youthful appearance and look as vibrant on the outside as they feel on the inside. Facelift surgery, forehead lift, and eyelid lift become excellent treatment options as individuals approach their 50s. In addition, patients in their 40s are frequent consumers of BOTOX, dermal fillers, and other skincare treatments that can help them appear younger.
In Your 50s, 60s and Beyond – Restoring Youthfulness
The 50s, 60s, and beyond are all about facial rejuvenation and reducing the appearance of aged, sagging skin affecting many parts of the body. Individuals in this age group often undergo full facelift procedures, eyelid lift treatments, Botox injections, and other facial rejuvenation treatments. For the body, eliminating sagging skin is achieved through arm lift surgery, thigh lift, and full-body lift, if necessary.
