From large breast implants in the ‘90s to a now more athletic appearance, to the development of full, pouting lips achieved with dermal fillers, what society at large deems attractive and beautiful is changing faster than ever.
One of the most popular plastic surgeries in the U.S., the facelift, was once a preferred procedure of patients entering into their later years. However, we are seeing this trend change as younger people are starting to choose a facelift to preserve their youthful appearance.
A perfectly understandable question, therefore, is what is causing this trend to change?
Here, Dr. Tim Sayed looks at the two potential reasons motivating younger people to opt for a facelift procedure.
1) More Natural Results
One of the most apparent trends in plastic surgery is the search for natural-looking results. Understandably, patients want plastic surgery’s aesthetic benefits without evidence that they have undergone any particular procedure.
With this in mind, many patients are choosing a facelift earlier—late-30’s to early 40’s—as a way of creating more natural results. This is due to surgical results being less-drastic than if the procedure were performed when they were older.
This pre-emptive approach to aging can also prolong a facelift’s results, which is another reason to consider getting a facelift earlier than tradition has dictated in the past.
In addition to facelifts, many non-surgical alternatives have also become highly prevalent among younger people. For younger patients, combining minimally-invasive facelift approaches with injectables (like Botox®, Dysport®, and fillers), microneedling, and topical skincare products can serve as the foundation for a beauty maintenance regimen carrying patients into their later adulthood. A non-surgical “liquid facelift” is also available for those who want to look younger but are not quite ready for surgery.
2) Professional Goals and Pressures
For many individuals, the most professionally productive years are between 40-60. With the changing demands of professional careers and the undeniable trend of larger companies wanting to hire young, competitive talent, experienced individuals in their late thirties desire to look younger during their peak career years. As such, they choose a facelift to give them a more youthful, vibrant appearance.
The anti-aging benefits of a facelift in Newport Beach or La Jolla are undeniable, and younger professionals realize the aesthetic benefits a facelift can bring them.
Having smoother, softer, more youthful facial skin can bolster confidence, which may directly impact performance. As such, if you are starting to become concerned by encroaching signs of aging, particularly a loose jawline, jowls, or frown lines, a facelift might be the perfect solution to your problems.
