According to the American Society for Plastic Surgeons, in 2014 American’s 55 or over made up 24 per cent of all cosmetic surgery procedures, while those aged 40-54 made up 34 per cent – the highest percentage of all the age groups.

Recent research from The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) found that ‘tweaked, not tucked’ has become the new ideal for many. 

The term ‘tweaked not tucked’ seems entirely accurate, ladies and gentleman within this age group will very often during consultation request a more natural look, a look that doesn’t completely change the appearance but particularly in the case of facial surgery, enhances their face and gives a fresher appearance.

As we age, the skin can become tired and begin to sag or wrinkle making the face look tired and worn but often the skin still has good elasticity, therefore facial surgery can improve these symptoms. 

Facial rejuvenation procedures are by far the most popular procedures that I consult for in this age group, facial rejuvenation can be anything from Rhytidectomy (facelift), Blepharoplasty (eye lid correction) to Non surgical treatments for example Botox (Anti Wrinkle) or dermal fillers for those deeper lines and creases.

Can Facial Cosmetic Surgery help?

Rhytidectomy (facelift surgery) and Blepharoplasty (eye lid correction) procedures will help to restore youthfulness to the face giving an increased confidence and self esteem. Rhytidectomy (facelift surgery) is major surgery and will generally require a 2 night stay in hospital, in many cases patients undergo Blepharoplasty (eye lid correction) at the same time to get an optimum result, or this can be done separately usually as a daycase and sometimes using local anaesthetic as opposed to general.

How do I book a consultation?

Whilst every patient is different, a consultation will provide you with a realistic idea of the result you can expect to achieve.

If you are considering surgery, I have clinics in Birmingham, Hereford and Worcester. To make an appointment please call or 0800 612 5919 or for more information please see my website

What does 2016 hold for the future of cosmetic surgery?

This article details a number of new and exciting procedures but for me there are several elements to this piece, those relating to breast surgery: the increase in breast reduction and implant removal, the implants claimed to be the lightest yet but with exactly the same volume as their industry counterparts and then the intended push for greater regulation of the industry.
