When it comes to treating patients in their 50s, there's more to it than just performing a facelift (which is very effective at reducing lines and wrinkles). Let's consider some of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures for patients who are in their 50s.

Facial Lift Procedures

Since we mentioned it already, it's worth detailing. These facial lift surgeries are a great option to consider for lines, wrinkles, and other common signs of premature aging.

  • Brow Lift - A brow lift is a great option for getting rid of problematic furrows and deep lines on the forehead.
  • Mid-Face Lift - This is another name for a traditional facelift, which targets the corners of the eyes and the upper cheek area.
  • Lower Facelift - When a patient has jowls or major facial sagging of the cheeks, the lower facelift is an ideal option.
  • Neck Lift - When the skin of the neck sags considerably, the neck lift will help patients look much younger and enhance the neckline.

Multiple facial lifts may be combined in order to achieve a total makeover that defies signs of advanced age.

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

The upper eyelids can droop and sag with advanced age. Similarly, the lower eyelids can become puffy and baggy. Both of these issues can have a major impact on your appearance, making you look haggard and exhausted.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery will be able to address issues with the upper and/or lower eyelids, making your eyes look livelier and vibrant, and making you appear years younger in the process.

Breast Lift Surgery

Breasts tend to droop and sag around middle age, which can have a negative impact on the overall figure and body contour. That's why a number of patients in their 50s decide to undergo a breast lift. This can improve the shape and perkiness of the breasts, giving a patient's silhouette a much more athletic and youthful appearance.

Thigh Lift Surgery (Thighplasty)

Over time, the thigh area can appear droopy or saggy simply given the effects of age. In order to address these matters, a thigh lift can be performed. Thigh lifts can target various parts of the thigh, including the outer leg, lower thigh, and the inner things.

Arm Lift Surgery (Brachioplasty)

Flabby or sagging upper arms are not uncommon as people age. That's why people in their 50s tend to undergo arm lift surgery. This surgery helps tighten and tone the shoulders and triceps, which can give the upper arm area the definition that people often desire.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

The lower abdominal area and love handles can droop with age and weight loss, with stretchmarks and other contouring issues marring a patient's frame. The tummy tuck will help remove loose skin of the lower abdominal area, helping patients look trimmer and fitter during middle age and into their golden years.
