The Facelift Boom(er)
Rebecca’s Happily Ever After Story
Whether you know it by the commonly referred to “Baby Boomers” or the “Me Generation”, this now 52 to 72-year-old population of women and men continues to be drawn to living the good life. Looking good and feeling good are no exception. This translates to maintaining a youthful glow through diet, yoga, healthy living and keeping a trusted cosmetic surgeon on speed dial.
“As a boomer and beyond, you may be getting ready for a big event. A child’s wedding. A grandchild’s graduation. A class reunion. The upcoming holiday season. That’s when we start to look in the mirror and question, “who is that older person looking back at me?” You want to turn back the clock and look as young as you feel, “explains Rebecca, a 54-year-old Timeless Lift patient.
“With today’s advancements in plastic surgery you can with minimal downtime and disruption to your busy life.”
According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), in 2015 adults aged 55 and over accounted for 3.9 million total cosmetic procedures in the U.S. “I am increasingly performing surgery on boomer age patients seeking to have their face and body match the vitality they feel. Less downtime and natural, affordable results make cosmetic surgery more accessible,” shares Sonny O, MD, Dr. Sonny O Plastic Surgery.
The Timeless Lift surgery itself follows some of the same fundamentals as a facelift by tightening any loose skin and reducing fat in the neck and lower face. “As you can see in the photos provided, Rebecca, a boomer in her 50’s, had neck sagging and lessened definition of her jaw line. For Rebecca, her son’s upcoming wedding sparked her interest in lifting her lower face and neck and smoothing out her wrinkles,” says Dr. Sonny O.
