Why Are Senior Citizens Getting Plastic Surgery?

The Wall Street Journal recently published a well-written article about why more and more Americans over the age of 65 are seeking plastic surgery.  While every patient has his/her unique motivations for plastic surgery, the article focused on seniors who are working longer because their savings have been depleted due to global economic realities.  This group of people cannot retire at age 65 because of changing Social Security payouts and a drop in 401-K values, so it is important that they remain young looking and competitive in the workforce against “30-somethings.”  Most patients in this category complained of looking “tired” in their facial appearance.  The American Association for Plastic Surgeons reported that this demographic experienced a 29% increase in plastic surgery procedures between 2005 and 2010.  The majority of procedures were Botox and other injectable fillers, but there were a healthy amount of facelifts, liposuction and tummy tucks too.  Others seeking plastic surgery in this age group report that with increased life expectancies that they want to look as young as possible for as long as possible.  Though the ASPS does not discourage older Americans from undergoing plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures, this demographic should approach with mindfulness that certain health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes can impact recovery.  However, a good plastic surgeon will address these concerns with his/her patient before moving forward with any surgical procedure.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
