Innovations in cosmetic surgery as well as emergence of a wide range of non-surgical aesthetic procedures have made it possible to customize treatments suiting to different age groups as well as tailoring them individually to meet the unique needs of a patient. Women and men in their 40’s can normally benefit from a variety of aesthetic procedures appropriate for their age.
Women in their 40’s usually start experiencing hormonal and age-related changes. These will have a cumulative impact on their skin appearance and other physical aspects. It is easy to correct such conditions with a number of surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides these procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and other area locations.
Changes in Aesthetic Appearance in the 40’s
For a lot of women, 40’s is the time when they will undergo perimenopause, which is a period of transitioning to menopause. Hormonal changes commonly occur at this stage, and at the same time, the body tends to produce lesser amount of collagen and elastin, which are natural elements to hold the skin tightly. The combined effect of these changes gradually begins to reflect in the skin appearance.
Loss of facial volume, wrinkles and fine lines around the brows and eyelids, and skin laxity in the face, neck and body will commonly take place in the 40’s. The skin’s cell renewal turnover will reduce, causing a duller skin appearance and partial loss of the natural skin glow. The metabolism slows down, making it more difficult to lose weight or burn off excess fat tissue with diet or exercise.
Varicose and spider veins, broken capillaries and brown spots are more common in the 40’s. Safe and proven cosmetic surgery and non-surgical procedures are available today to address these conditions.
