Paramus Plastic Surgeon Dr. Paul M. Parker Comments On Plastic Surgery Age Demographics

According to Dr. Parker’s experience at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery, specific age groups tend to favor certain plastic surgery procedures performed.

Online PR News – 15-October-2013 – Paramus, NJ – Dr. Paul M. Parker and the professionals at the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery in Paramus, New Jersey have offered many observations regarding current plastic surgery demographics and the popularity of certain procedures as determined by age group. While trends do vary from year to year, there are some procedures that remain consistently popular across the nation. For example, specific areas of the face and body become more of a concern as a person ages.

Patients in their 20s and 30s are most often interested in liposuction and breast augmentation procedures. This trend has much to do with the fact that women who have children usually do so before they reach their 40s. After having children or noticing a slowdown in metabolism, patients are eager to rid themselves of loose skin and fatty tissues that often cannot be taken care of through diet and exercise alone. This prompts patients to seek body contouring treatments.

Clients who elect to have plastic surgery in their 40s and 50s regularly express an interest in facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid rejuvenation. As collagen in skin breaks down, some of the earliest signs of aging become evident around the eyes and the neck. It is not uncommon for eyelids to droop and the skin around the jawline to sag with age. There are numerous procedures aimed at minimizing wrinkles and tightening the skin of the face and neck.

“Younger patients are usually looking to enhance their features or correct something that makes them unhappy,” says Dr. Paul M. Parker, founder and medical director of the Parker Center for Plastic Surgery. “For our more mature clients, it is all about aesthetic maintenance and aging gracefully. Everyone wants to look refreshed and healthy.”
