Growing older. Plastic Surgery Boom over Age ’50s
Are you finding it hard to adjust to becoming part of the invisible generation?
As old age approaches, a person’s appearance (to others) begins to become unnoticed. It’s subtle and not so glaringly obvious But…
For example, take waiting in line at a customer service desk. When it’s your turn, the assistant astonishingly doesn’t look in your direction. Instead often turns to another younger customer in appearance. It’s as if you are literally unseen!
We know it happens as most of us have experienced it. Being ignored is not something which dramatically happens overnight. It’s something which gradually starts to creep up on us.
In everyday life we find ourselves being marginalised by others in conversations.
It leaves many people taking it in quite a relaxed way, others take it very personally and are absolutely seething. The only consolation being:- it will happen to them too one day!
It could be that maybe (unwittingly) people display a certain indifference towards us.
Our opinions don’t seem to matter very much anymore. Conversations are rarely extended beyond the basics. In general, people will deny that this happens. But the fact is, it’s outright ageism and a view that the world belongs exclusively to the young.
Eventually ageing happens to us all and for those who once enjoyed being the centre of attention, it feels like society starts to shun you.
You become categorised and treated as invisible. Because you have lived through the experience of being both young and old, you notice the difference in treatment.
You can if you wish do something about how you look if you are brave enough! We suggest based on 22 years of experience in Cosmetic surgery Prague is the place to go.
Recently There’s Been A Plastic Surgery Boom for Over the Fifties.
Youthfulness projects a radiance and glows to which people react more positively. It’s true what’s so often been said – how you look is key to success. When you look good and you feel good, it will influence the way people respond to you. People are naturally drawn to attractive, bouncy, self-confident people.
Elderly people are often perceived as frumpy, old, and decrepit. When you start aging a feeling of gradually becoming more worthless envelopes us.
because of this stereotype. You feel like your value in society is zero.
What can be done to remedy this? One must keep in mind that many people are quite happy to simply accept this turn of events. Often the ones who struggle, are those who were once very attractive and used to getting their own way. Which is of course much easier if you look good. You know you lost it when you can no longer easily get your own way or be listened to.
Should A Cosmetic Surgery Procedure Be Considered?
In the last year or so we have noticed a sharp rise in the number of enquiries from the over 50’s for a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures.We cannot conduct a survey to precisely determine the reason/motive behind their choices but- here are a few possible explanations.
1) Access to money.
It seems that people are either a bit “better off” lately or simply throwing caution to the wind and splashing out. The other possibility is people are making it a priority and foregoing spending on for instance another holiday, a new kitchen, or a home extension.
2) Facelift and eye surgery.
What are the most in-demand cosmetic surgery procedures amongst the older generation? Faces and eyes. These are the areas which frustrate older people the most because they are clearly on display. They cannot be hidden, and the face is what people connect with most.
Reasons for making the decision are based on personal pride in appearance and wanting to be noticed again- instead of ignored.
3) Tummy tucks and liposuction combo.
Sadly, many older people develop large tummy overhangs and expanding hips, thighs etc. This is very distressing because, in their younger years, they were mostly trim and slim. A tummy tuck and liposuction on an older person makes them look much better in their clothes but doesn’t necessarily stand up to the scrutiny of appearing in a bathing costume. But for most mature ladies it’s not a question of trying to attract a wife/husband or partner, it’s more about personal self-esteem.
Why is that you may well ask?
Actually, you have to have lived through the experience of being both young and old to understand it.
Youthfulness projects a radiance and glows to which people react more positively. It’s true what’s so often been said- how you look is key to success. People naturally warm to attractive, bouncy, self-confident people. All of which come from looking good and knowing it.
Frumpy, old and decrepit is sadly how the elderly are perceived. Which has the effect on an elderly person of feeling quite worthless? Your value is zero.

So, what can be done to remedy this? Bearing in mind many people are quite happy to simply accept it. The ones who can’t, are usually those who were once very attractive and used to getting their own way. Which is of course much easier if you look good. You know you lost it when you can no longer get your own way or, be listened to anymore.
Does the idea of a cosmetic surgery procedure a consideration?
We have in the last year or so, seen a sharp rise in the number of enquiries from the over 60’s for a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures.
Obviously, we cannot conduct a survey as to precisely their reason/motives but here are a few possible reasons.
Money. It would seem that either people are becoming that bit “better off” or throwing ‘caution to the wind’ and splashing out. Or, making it a priority and foregoing another spending on a holiday, new kitchen, or home extension for example.
What amongst the older generation are the most in-demand cosmetic surgery procedures? -faces and eyes. These are the areas which bug older people the most because they are clearly on display (cannot be hidden) and the face is what people connect with most.
The reason for making the decision is based on personal pride in appearance, becoming noticed again instead of generally being ignored. From my own experience, a really good and natural-looking facelift makes a massive positive effect. I recall after my last facelift ( I had two) my self-confidence massively improved. I recall one day a surly car clamper gave me at my confident request 15 minutes in order to do my shopping and amazingly addressed me as “babes” I had to laugh as I was age 56 at the time.
For someone who had enjoyed the admiration and attention of the opposite sex when younger, it was a welcome boost to my ego. Of course many would criticise my superficial attitude, and tell me to simply “grow old gracefully” but that’s not me!
Recent Statistics show an upsurge in Cosmetic Surgery interest amongst the over 50s
Libby, our cosmetic surgery guru says: The fact is after my facelift at least on the ‘outside’ I looked age 40 again.
The downside is nobody any longer opened doors for me! Or indeed treats me as an older person who needed to be taken care of.
In my humble opinion: Whilst undergoing a facelift it’s very important that at the same time eye bags and upper lids surgery is performed.
Otherwise, the newly chiselled face is let down badly by the older and tired-looking eyes. If you plan to ignore the eyes, my advice is not to bother at all with the facelift-you will waste your money.
3) Tummy tucks and lipo combined. Sadly many of our older generations have developed large tummy overhangs and expanding hips, thighs etc. This for them is very distressing because, in their younger years, they were mostly trim and slim. On the other hand these days often the daughter possesses a bigger tummy, thighs, and hips, than their mothers.
It’s a fact we see it all the time.
However, it’s not for me to comment here on the reasons for this and why. However, a tummy tuck and liposuction on an older person make them look much better in their clothes but do not stand up to the scrutiny of just wearing a swimming costume. For most mature ladies it’s not a question of trying to attract a wife/husband or partner, it’s more personal self-esteem. They are conscious of being unable to stand up to scrutiny when wearing a bathing costume.
4) Bat wings. Another scourge for the older woman. Big flapping upper arms, very unsightly and reminds them of how their own Mum or aunty suffered from the same problem many years ago. Now perhaps they have a bit more empathy for the issues. However, bat wings correction is not a procedure to take lightly. Removing too much surplus skin can render you paralysed in that arm. Also, you can do absolutely nothing for at least 5 days following the surgery. But we’ll be worthwhile I’d the rest of the body looks good, but let down by the flapping upper arms.
Of course, there are numerous other procedures which come into the category of ‘anti-ageing’ but the ones listed above are the priorities.
