At what age is it typical to start getting procedures done? The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery conducted a survey to help determine who exactly is getting plastic surgery and at what age.
In 2014 rhinoplasties took the lead as the most common procedure performed, followed by facelifts, eyelifts and laser skin resurfacing. Facelifts topped the charts for patients over the age of 55, while rhinoplasties were most requested by patients under 34.
Botox injections and fillers were the most common procedures on patients 35 and older. In Dr. Shah’s practice, these numbers correspond to his patient population.
