People are right when they say 40 is the new 30, but that doesn’t mean 40-somethings should ignore plastic surgery procedures that can reverse the signs of aging that they may be experiencing. Likewise, there’s nothing that says a 40-year-old can’t have an amazing body to show off at the beach!
If you’ve hit this decade of life, know that your best years are still ahead. And as Dr. Max of MP Plastic Surgery will tell you, he works with several men and women in their 40’s to perform procedures that make them look younger – both on the face and elsewhere on their bodies.
To help you get inspired, here are 5 tips for plastic surgery in your 40’s:
1. It’s Not Too Early to Consider a Facelift or Mini-Facelift
In the past, men and women used to have facelifts only when they were in their 50’s or older. That’s changing quickly. Today, many local men and women are having a facelift or a less invasive mini-facelift to turn back the hands of time on their face sooner than ever before. And if you have some wrinkling and facial sinking but aren’t quite a candidate for a full-on facelift, a mini-facelift can help you prevent the need for a full-blown facelift for several years to come.
2. To Fight Off Wrinkles, Xeomin and Other Fillers May Become a Regular Part of Your Life in Your 40’s
We can’t stop the fact that our hair will eventually gray, and our skin will eventually start to show wrinkles. But just like you can easily dye your hair, you can mascarade wrinkles on your face with the help of Xeomin® and other facial fillers. In fact, many men and women regularly schedule appointments at MP Plastic Surgery to have initial and routine maintenance injections.
3. If Your Eyelids Are Starting to Droop, Blepharoplasty Can Help
In addition to creases and wrinkles on your face and lost facial volume, some men and women in their 40s start to notice that their eyelids begin to droop or that they start to develop dark circles that just won’t go away. If this happens to you, don’t worry. There’s a plastic surgery to fix this exact problem. Called blepharoplasty, this procedure removes fatty deposits in and under your eyes to give you a fresh, alert look.
4. Tighten Up and Sculpt Your Abdomen with a Tummy Tuck
We all know that as we get older, gravity starts to take hold. And one of the places where men and women may notice sagging skin is in their abdomen. If you have loose or hanging abdominal skin, a tummy tuck can help. And listen up men: tummy tucks aren’t just for women. Dr. Max performs this surgical procedure on several local men every year.
5. If You Lose a Significant Amount of Weight in Your 40s, Consider Post Weight Loss Body Contouring
The 40s seem to be a decade where people take on challenges they’ve always wanted to conquer, and a lot of local men and women who were formerly overweight slim down after they’ve reached the big 4-0.
But weight loss doesn’t always guarantee that you’ll have the silhouette you want. If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, you could have excess skin hanging off your arms or thighs. Post weight loss body contouring can resculpt these areas of the body, giving you a whole new “you” to love!
