Actually, it’s age 50 that is now the new 30 according to the American Academy of Facial & Reconstructive Surgery! The AAFPRS, of which Dr. Thompson is a part of, conducted a survey of approximately 500 women between the ages of 45 -60 with a number of questions asking about aging and cosmetic facial surgery and procedures. Almost 70% said they feel at least 6 years younger than their chronological age.

So why not look on the outside how you feel on the inside? The survey showed that women are more open to cosmetic surgical and non-surgical treatments to slow down the signs of aging. Of the group of women surveyed, 72% have tried facial peels, while 50% have had injections of Botox® or dermal fillers, and 15% have had cosmetic facial surgery.

The majority of women in the study, 70%, stated that a milestone birthday affected the way they feel about their appearance. Twenty four percent were most concerned with looking their real age, with sagging cheeks or eye bags (39%), fine lines and wrinkles (33%), and “turkey neck” (28%) topping their list of aesthetic concerns.

“Today, women in their 40’s and 50’s are more confident and beautiful than ever before,” said AAFFPRS president and Facial Plastic Surgeon Ed Farrior, MD, in a news release. “With growing number of minimally invasive and nonsurgical options, they are able to maintain their youthful appearance for longer.”
