Over the past decade, the number of couples divorcing in their 60s and 70s has increased significantly. This trend is starting to impact plastic surgeons across the country, as more and more of these people, commonly called “silver separators,” are seeking cosmetic procedures to reverse the signs of aging as they look for new romance. Both men and women over the age of 60 have been flocking to plastic surgeons in increasing numbers. The most common treatment requested by this demographic has been liposuction, most likely in an attempt to restore a more youthful figure. Many people in their 60s and 70s are also seeking nonsurgical treatments such as dermal fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore lost facial volume caused by the aging process. It is likely that this trend will continue over the next few years as more and more baby boomers get the courage to leave unhappy marriages after many years in an attempt to find love once again in their twilight years. If you live in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area and are interested in a cosmetic treatment to help you as you return to the dating scene after years of marriage, please contact Dr. David Bottger today to schedule your initial consultation.
