-- There has been a study on facial plastic surgery done the other year, and it showed that almost all the people who would get facelifts and other such procedures came from people who are forty years old and up. To be more precise, around 33,500 people out of a total of 36,000 facelifts done last year came from people who are middle aged and up. Only about 300 of their patients were from between 20 – 29, and about 1,400 were 30 – 39 years old. This is a very telling tale, and it shows that the market for facelifts is those who are aging.
This has led the industry to create a greater focus on making their procedures more comfortable and convenient for their patients. Lead physicians from the leading facelift clinics like http://360facelift.com/
have been quoted saying, "Let's remember we have to be safe here. We're not buying a car. This is about your health and about your body,"
In an effort to make facelifts much safer for people, many new techniques and instrumentation have been created. Industry pundits have said, “This is an industry that caters mainly for an older clientele. We are aware that they are much more fragile physically than the young, and we are trying to address the situation to best cater to the demands of our main clients.”
Many have come out to support these new surgical tools and techniques, and are hoping that this would reinvigorate a dwindling industry. The numbers show that facelift operations in general have gone down almost 35% in volume these past ten years. These new additions are done in the hopes that the industry will regain some footing and gain more patients.
