Though many more women still seek out plastic surgery than men, according to recent statistics, that gap is closing. In 2018, 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men.

In 2018, more than a quarter million liposuction procedures were performed in the United States. That makes it the second most common type of plastic surgery, after breast enhancement.

“Women across generations agree that age does not define beauty,” AARP Survey of Women’s Reflections on Beauty, Age, and Media. Thanks to the passage of time, hormonal changes—and gravity—most women begin to see a change in their breasts around age 40. It is normal at this point for breasts to appear smaller, less firm, more […]
