Over the next year, the last of the official Baby Boomer generation will turn 50. Older Boomers are clocking in at 67 to 68 years of age. They are the children of the Greatest Generation, and they've always done things their way -- including aging.
The unwillingness of the Boomers to just give in and let it sag, or to be content with what nature gave them has filtered down to their children and grandchildren. There is literally a cosmetic surgery procedure to correct every perceived flaw or to improve every result of the passing years -- and it's not just the rich and famous who get nipped, tucked, enhanced, reduced, rejuvenated, and reinvigorated.
Cosmetic surgery procedures have literally exploded in numbers over the past decade as people have realized it's fun and empowering to not just be who you want to be, but to look how you want to look. It's not quite as easy as deciding to change your hairstyle, but giving the highly perfected nature of the techniques and the effectiveness of the results, plastic surgery is out of the closet. Far from being coy about whether or not they've had a facelift, people show off their "work" with pride and pleasure.
If you're considering a cosmetic procedure, you want to make sure you've picked the right surgeon who is board certified in the required technique. You need to completely understand the nature of the work and what you can realistically expect -- including how long the changes will last and what the recovery entails. When those questions are satisfactorily asked? Go for it.
From facelifts to nose jobs, breast augmentations to liposuction, the surgical options are wide and varied. You have safe choices for injectables and other non-invasive treatments that are growing more sophisticated by the day. Simply opting for procedures that improve skin tone and texture can literally "peel" years off your age. A little Botox? Good-bye frown lines and crow's feet. Can it all go too far? Of course it can. A host of celebrities bear plasticine testimony to the reality of "too much of a good thing."
But there are also literally millions of people every day getting the jaw lines they always wanted, reshaping the nose they never liked, or gaining back the contour and silhouette they had before child-bearing and gravity took hold. If you want your external features to mirror how you feel inside -- young, interested, engaged, involved, and loving life -- cosmetic surgery is one way to help you show yourself off to your best advantage.
