Is 70 the new 50?

Is 70 the new 50?

24 November 2014

It’s official – 70 year olds have never looked so good, a fact which hasn’t gone unnoticed. Take a look at the likes of Harrison Ford, Barbara Streisand, Jane Fonda and Sean Connery – they’re all in their 70s and they look good for it.

This has led many to dub 70 the new 50, with President of The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), Stephen S Park commenting: “There is no question people of this generation are tuned in to their health, diet, hydration, physical fitness. […].

“The 70-year-old person today is fit and a frequent seeker of facial plastic surgery, in quest of matching their vibrant health with their outward appearance. Creams and lasers can only do so much. Gravity usually has the last word, unless it competes with the scalpel.”

Due to the many advanced technological Anti-Ageing offerings nowadays, it’s never been easier or more acceptable to have a little work done and still look natural. Many 70 year olds are turning to the less invasive Anti-Ageing solutions which are virtually painless, leave smaller scars and require no down time – but which also give the patient more youthful looking skin.

Line & Wrinkle treatment, Dermal Fillers and Laser treatments are some of the more popular Anti-Ageing solutions undertaken by those in their 70s and over.

When it comes to Cosmetic Surgery, it was found that post-surgery complications occur at the same rate for older patients as for younger patients – something which has given older patients more confidence when opting for a procedure over a treatment.
