Cosmetic Surgery Procedures Popular for Your Age

Cosmetic Surgery Procedures Popular for Your AgeAt what age should you consider having a cosmetic surgery procedure? There is no right or wrong answer; it usually depends upon what you think is the right time for you.

Whatever your age, when you’re ready, Dr. Landon McLain has the skills and experience to bring you optimal results with every procedure.


While cosmetic surgery is not common amongst teenagers, there are good reasons for considering surgery at this age. Rhinoplasty is the most common teen surgery. It is performed after the nose reaches its full adult size. For girls, this is usually at 14 or 15, and 17 for boys. Male breast reduction is another popular choice for teenagers, as well as otoplasty to correct prominent ears for both boys and girls. 

The 20s

Far and away, breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic procedure among women in their twenties. Nose reshaping – rhinoplasty is another surgery that is popular for women in their twenties.

The 30s

While Botox and fillers are popular among all age groups, the thirties are a big year for Botox. This is a time during which you begin to notice lines and wrinkles are developing. Though the signs are generally minor at this age, early treatment goes a long way in slowing down the visible aging process.

Many women in their thirties who are finished having children will opt for a Mommy Makeover. Breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction and breast lift surgery are all very popular in this age group.

The 40s and 50s

This is a time when you begin to see the real signs of aging. Blepharoplasty, or an eye lift, is very popular among men and women in this age group. Dr. McLain removes excess skin, fat and muscle from the eyelid area, and it can be very rejuvenating.

BOTOX and soft-tissue fillers are also a hot choice in this age group to help slow the signs of aging.  Some patients will need surgical correction starting at this age… including facelifts and forehead lifts.


By far, the most popular procedure after one reaches 55, and thereafter, is the facelift. The forehead lift is a close second. These procedures tighten sagging skin and muscle for a much more youthful appearance. BOTOX and fillers may also be used in conjunction with these procedures to give you that younger look.

Whatever your age, when you feel like it is time to make changes that will leave you looking and feeling younger, contact Dr. McLain’s office to schedule your consultation appointment.
