Rise in cosmetic surgery for the over-60s
25 January 2013A growing number of people over the age of 60 are turning to plastic surgery to help them get back into the dating game. This is according to the Mail Online, which noted the number of couples divorcing in their 60s and 70s has increased significantly over the past 10 years.As a result, individuals are going under the knife to improve their appearance and give them a better chance of finding a new partner. The online news provider noted that the most popular treatment among this demographic is the lipoglaze, which is a ‘fat freezing’ procedure that is used to remove unwanted fat from around the stomach, hips and thighs. In the hour-long treatment, fat cells in the chosen area are frozen, which causes them to die and be expelled by the body. And that’s not all, as a cosmetics company revealed it has seen a 210 per cent increase in the number of women over the age of 60 who are spending £225 a year on anti-ageing creams and serums. This is double the amount spent by those in their 20s and 30s.
