It’s hard to believe that the generation that brought us the bold power shoulder, as well as the iconic grunge look in the 90s, is finally all grown up. Even in middle age adulthood, Generation X continues to set trends in medical aesthetics and plastic surgery. Here are the top 5 procedures plastic surgeons around the country report patients around 40-55 years old want the most. First, Generation X is seeking
body work, such as breast augmentations, breast lifts, tummy tucks, and Mommy Makeovers. Women closer to 40 are also interested in breast reshaping. To fight off unwanted signs of aging such as facial volume loss, many middle-aged individuals are looking for skin tightening and filler treatments. With the COVID-19 pandemic, many surgeons report a spike in “Zoom Lifts”: facelifts, mini-lifts, and eyelid lifts influenced by the constant viewing of oneself on a web camera. Finally, brow and neck treatments are extremely popular for Gen Xers who find themselves looking older than they’d prefer. If you’re a part of this infamous generation, perhaps one of these popular treatments is the right choice for you. Schedule your consultation with Dr. J. J. Wendel today!
