Richmond Plastic Surgeons Highlight Popular Procedures at Every Age

Neil J. Zemmel, MD, FACS and Steven J. Montante, MD Discuss Common Concerns and Treatment Options That Patients of Various Ages Tend to Undergo

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - Jan 22, 2015) - At Richmond Plastic Surgery, Drs. Neil Zemmel and Steven Montante have found that certain age groups tend to gravitate towards specific procedures. They say this results from the age-related concerns that occur at each decade, causing people to seek similar treatment options. From the teenage years to those over 50, the plastic surgeons explain there are beneficial solutions for each concern.

According to Drs. Zemmel and Montante, plastic surgery in the teenage years, 20s, and 30s tends to include reconstruction, skin treatments, cosmetic enhancement, and body contouring. They say teenagers, specifically, are known to seek reconstructive procedures like rhinoplasty, otoplasty, and breast reduction. Those in their 20s, the surgeons explain, tend to show interest in enhancement options like breast augmentation, as well as procedures like liposuction and rhinoplasty. For patients in their 30s, Drs. Zemmel and Montante note aging and stubborn fat to be common concerns. Popular procedures for this age group include non-surgical facial rejuvenation, breast lift, breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and liposuction.

When it comes to plastic surgery in the 40s, 50s, and beyond, the Richmond plastic surgeons explain that aging is a major concern. They say that patients in their 40s show interest in dermal fillers and BOTOX® injections, as well as surgical options like lifting procedures (i.e. facelift, eyelid lift, brow lift, and breast lift), tummy tuck, and breast augmentation. As these people transition into their 50s and older, Drs. Zemmel and Montante highlight the goal of aging gracefully. They have found popular treatments for this age group to include skin rejuvenation, facial lifting procedures, and body contouring.

Despite the patient's age or concerns, Drs. Zemmel and Montante encourage anyone interested in cosmetic surgery procedures to seek a board-certified plastic surgeon. By doing so, they say patients can expect a safer procedure with improved results.
