In the past, it was thought that plastic surgery was for older women, and sometimes men. While it is true that older women (and men) have long turned to plastic surgery to help achieve their goals, plastic surgery has become popular for younger people as well. However, it is important to remember that in general, plastic surgery should not be performed on a person who is still growing. For the most part, women and men who are over the age of 18 are turning to plastic surgery procedures near Spokane to refine or improve an aspect of their face or body.
According to the 2010 statistics gathered by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, plastic surgery procedures have increased about 9% from 2009 to 2010 alone. More specifically, people in the age range of 35-50 made up 44% of the total number of people who received a plastic surgery procedure in 2010. While this age group was a popular age range for surgical procedures, the truth is that plastic surgery spanned a variety of ages.
In short, there is no one age that a person becomes more or less “eligible” for a plastic surgery procedure. Candidacy for a procedure more depends on your goals and lifestyle, as well as your natural body shape or facial structure.
