Are you a retiree considering plastic surgery? You aren’t the only one. Many men and women over age 55 decide to seek plastic surgery to turn back the hands of time, slow the aging process, or correct something they haven’t been pleased with for years.

With all of the hard work you’ve done over the years, we believe whole-heartedly that you deserve to feel good about the way you look!

MarketWatch Reports Cosmetic Procedures Increasing for People Over 55

Many people seek plastic surgery to stay ahead of the competition for professional reasons. Usually, they are trying to seek employment or a promotion often given to younger workers.

However, once out of the labor force, many people are still seeking cosmetic surgery procedures. Actually, in 2013, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that people 55 and over accounted for a quarter of all people who had plastic surgery procedures.

The most popular procedures were:

  • Facelift
  • Forehead Lift
  • Ear Reshaping (Ear Pinning)
  • Hair Transplantation
  • Pectoral Implants

Retirees Seek Plastic Surgery for a Myriad of Reasons

While rewarding yourself for a job well done in the labor force is a good reason to get cosmetic surgery, there are many other motivators. Many retirees are entering the dating scene again, so they want to look their best while boosting their confidence.

For others, they simply have time to focus on themselves for once and they want to love the person looking back at them in the mirror.

The Financial Implications of Cosmetic Surgery During Retirement

What’s important to consider is the financial effects seeking plastic surgery will have on retirement savings. Getting into debt (or more debt) may not be a wise choice for everyone at this stage in life.

When considering whether plastic surgery is the right choice for you, consider how much you will spend on anti-aging skin care products, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, and facial fillers to maintain your look.

If the amount you will spend over time closely matches the cost of cosmetic surgery, it may be worth the financial commitment in the long run.

Of course, those with a disposable income are in a prime position for a plastic surgery procedure, as long as their medical history and assessment are clear. Your well-being and ability to withstand a cosmetic procedure is a priority for us at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York.
