On this blog we've previously considered common plastic surgery procedures for people in their 50s, common plastic surgery procedures for people in their 40s, and common plastic surgery procedures for people in their 30s. Let's turn back one more decade and consider how skin care treatments and plastic surgery can enhance the appearance of people in their 20s.
Non-Surgical Skin Care Treatments
In your 20s, major lines and wrinkles are uncommon. Most of the aesthetic concerns that people this young face involve fine lines and the overall texture, pigment, and appearance of the skin. In order to address these needs, it's common to rely on non-surgical skin care treatments. These include:
- Chemical peels
- Laser skin resurfacing
All of the above typically require little to no recovery time.
Laser Hair Removal
Unsightly facial hair and body hair can leave people feeling very self-conscious, which is why laser hair removal is so popular among patients in their 20s. Thanks to laser hair removal, patients can have the appearance that they want while they are out on the beach or conducting business at the office.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
Issues with the appearance of the nose can lead to lots of self-consciousness. That's why many patients in their 20s opt to undergo a rhinoplasty. A subtle change to the nose can improve facial symmetry and overall facial appearance.
Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)
Large ears or ears that stick out in a prominent way are the source of teasing in youth and self-consciousness in adulthood. This is why so many patients consider ear pinning. This procedure adjusts the cartilage of the ear to improve the patient's overall appearance.
Breast Augmentation Surgery
Boosting the size of the breasts can make a major difference in your body contour and confidence. That's the primary reason that so many women around the world and of all ages consider breast augmentation surgery. Even just a slight enhancement to the breast size can make a major difference overall.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Sometimes women have a much different problem when it comes to their breast size. Breasts that are too large or pendulous can result in back pain, shoulder pain, and neck pain. Breast reduction surgery will help alleviate this pain and will also address any issues with self-consciousness that patients may face. Health insurance may cover the cost of the procedure in some cases.
Everyone has a bit of fat that will not go away, even with regular exercise and a good diet. That's when liposuction can be a real help. Thanks to liposuction, excess pockets of fat in different parts of the body can be removed through careful suction, allowing patients to look slimmer, trimmer, and more athletic
