More over 55s are turning to cosmetic surgery
Research from The Independent Pensions Advisory Service (TPAS) has found that more pensioners have been saying that they are looking to spend their pension on cosmetic surgery, such as face lifts, breast enlargements and dental implants.
According to the American Society for Plastic Surgeons, in 2014, 24 per cent of all cosmetic surgery procedures were performed on Americans over the age of 55, while those aged 40-54 made up 34 per cent – the highest percentage of all age groups.
Recent research from The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) found that more and more people are leaning towards “tweaked, not tucked”.
Naveen Cavale, a consultant plastic surgeon and a member of The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons says the trend has increased in the over 55s for a number of reasons.
“This could partly be because of the new financial freedoms they’re enjoying, but also the fact cosmetic surgery is no longer a taboo in society. It’s also much more affordable and accessible for the average person.
They just want to look more refreshed and less tired. People say ‘I’m only 55 and people are giving up seats for me on the bus’. They just want to look their age.”
