ASPS – American Society of Plastic Surgeons
Research presented by the ASPS last year showed that older patients have no more complications than younger ones when undergoing non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
This finding was based on an extensive review of 5 years of data on the CosmetAssure database.
Researchers suggested that given the greater than average presence of health-related issues among older patients, the similar complication rate was surprising, especially as results highlighted a higher BMI (Body Mass Index) and greater incidence of diabetes.
A doctor from the department of Plastic Surgery at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, said that demand for procedures among older patients was expected to grow in the future, saying:
I am convinced that we will continued to witness increasing demand for cosmetic procedures among the elderly.
This finding echoes the position in the UK, where non-surgical treatments such as botox and fillers are continuing to gain popularity among those who wish to look good for their age.
