Portland, ME, July 22, 2015: Owner and Founder of The Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Verne Weisberg posted a new article on his website entitled, “Popular Plastic Surgery Procedures Throughout the Ages.” According to Weisberg, “plastic surgeries are the most popular surgeries performed in the U.S.”
Weisberg explains why, writing, “With the ability to transform a person’s looks, plastic surgery procedures are popular for every age group.” He adds, “Trends in plastic surgery do vary from year to year, however, statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2012 report show that certain procedures are consistently popular among certain age groups.”
Each decade brings a different procedure to the foreground. As Weisberg states, “The most popular cosmetic procedure among teens is rhinoplasty or reshaping the nose. By the time a child reaches their teens the nose has attained the shape and structure it will have for life. That size and shape is not always the most flattering and the self-esteem at this stage of life can be easily damaged by unkind nicknames related to the nose.”
According to Weisberg, the breasts are the focus of those in the 20’s. He writes, “Men and women both begin to have concerns about their breasts once they’ve completely grown through puberty. Some men develop enlarged breasts making them feel self-conscious and insecure when removing their shirts to go swimming or play sports. This is the time when many men will consider gynecomastia, male breast reduction surgery.” He adds, “By the time a woman reaches 20 -29 years of age, the breasts are fully formed in size and shape. The only things that can change the size at shape of the breasts once they are fully formed are changes in weight.”
With the 30’s and the slowing down of the metabolism, Weisberg states, “typically the body begins to deposit fat around the waist, on the back, thighs and on the abdomen.” “For many years”, he adds, “liposuction has been the popular choice for eliminating love handles and fat deposits on the thighs, back and abdomen. Now other less invasive procedures have also joined the list of safe options for sculpting the body and removing fat.”
