You don’t have to look older just because you’re aging. Nearly 6.5 million cosmetic procedures were performed on women in their 40’s during 2012. Some are surgical, and some do not require surgery. The 3 most popular procedures at our Las Vegas plastic surgery practice for women in their 40’s are BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, facelift and breast lift or breast augmentation.

BOTOX & Dysport® Injections

As you age, lines and wrinkles develop next to your eyes, beside your mouth and between your nose and mouth. BOTOX & Dysport injections reduce the wrinkles by temporarily restricting the muscles that control those areas. This smooths the wrinkles and gives your face a more youthful appearance. BOTOX injections are the most popular cosmetic procedure for women over the age of 40. The injections are not surgically invasive, and you’ll notice the results immediately. The treatments need to be repeated every 3-4 months, on average.

Facelift

Facelift is a more permanent form of removing age lines, wrinkles and excess fat from your face. Because a facelift require surgery, you won’t see the final results until the swelling subsides. This procedure is frequently performed with other procedures, such as brow lift, cheek augmentation, rhinoplasty and chin implants.

Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation

Activity and gravity tend to make breasts droop and sag. This can be effectively countered with a breast lift to reposition your breasts or with a breast augmentation to enlarge your breasts and place them higher on the chest. If you’re considering either procedure in Las Vegas, be sure to check out our blog post, Breast Augmentation vs. Breast Lift: Which is right for you?
