Plastic Surgery in Your 50s Can Rejuvenate Your Appearance
By Constance M. Barone, M.D. on January 30, 2015
Many people consider plastic surgery as a solution for addressing signs of aging that tend to have an effect on a person’s appearance. However, many question when the ideal time to address these concerns is. There really is no universal age that is considered the “right” time to undergo plastic surgery. Because the effects and side effects of aging are unique for each patient, the time at which plastic surgery becomes a good choice, as well as the type of plastic surgery that is needed, is also unique for each patient. Dr. Constance Barone offers multiple facial plastic surgery procedures to refresh and revitalize facial features, as well as a complete offering of body contouring procedures to tone and tighten the skin. While plastic surgery can be performed when you’re a young adult, many patients are ready for cosmetic enhancement when they reach their 50s. Here we offer our San Antonio patients information on common plastic surgery procedures that are performed on patients in their 50s.
Once a patient reaches his or her 50s, it is common for lines, wrinkles, and deep creases to begin showing up on the face. A brow lift can raise the eyebrows and smooth out the skin of the forehead. This procedure addresses loose skin, eliminates wrinkles and creases, and helps patients get rid of the furrowed look between the eyes that so often make patients appear tired or angry. A brow lift can significantly refresh a person’s overall look without altering their natural appearance.
A mini facelift is an option for patients who are not quite ready for a traditional facelift, but who are beginning to notice loose skin and a loss of definition in facial features, as well as the development of lines and wrinkles. Dr. Barone offers the mini facelift, which involves the use of dermal fillers and facial implants. Using these techniques, Dr. Barone can fill out facial features, improve the contours of the face, and smooth facial skin. A mini facelift if a popular procedure for our patients who have reached their 50s.
A facelift lifts the skin from the lower portion of the face (cheeks, chin, and upper neck) and manipulates the underlying facial muscles to create smoother, firmer facial features. A facelift can minimize some common signs of aging such as loose, creased skin and “fallen” facial features.
Although the face is often one of the first areas of the body to show signs of aging, it is not the only one. By the time patients are in their 50s, many notice that the skin of the body has also become loose and that the body is more likely to hold onto stubborn pockets of body fat. Dr. Barone has found that many patients in their 50s are ready to address these problems with body contouring procedures. We offer our patients improved body contour and a more toned appearance through procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, and thigh lift.
