This year, the oldest of the Baby Boomer generation will be turning 64 years old according to the U.S. Census Bureau. We’ve all heard of this generation of Americans born after World War II between 1946 and 1964, and now some people are talking about what they’re calling a “Baby Boomer Face Lift.” What is this procedure all about?
Otherwise known as a short-scar or mini-face lift, the “Baby Boomer” face lift is a quicker, less invasive, and more affordable alternative to a traditional face lift, and can be appropriate for certain patients in their 40s and 50s in particular who do not need as extensive surgical correction as a traditional face lift provides.
This type of face lift in Dallas uses significantly smaller incisions, ending at the earlobe so that scarring behind the ear is largely or completely eliminated.
Even if they don’t have a “Baby Boomer” procedure, more and more people in the 40-65 age bracket are considering facial rejuvenation. That’s not just what I’m seeing, but also a national trend, at least according to researchers from Boston University School of Medicine and the Laser and Skin Cancer Center of Indiana. They found a dramatic increase in procedures performed and patient demand for dermatologic health care since 2000, and I expect the same holds true for facial cosmetic surgery.
What do you think? Will Boomers continue to take advantage of cosmetic surgery in the years to come?
