Remember when the term cougar (which referred to older women dating younger men) was hot and happening? It seems as though the term is not used as much anymore. Did it go away with Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher? Make no mistake about it women over 40 are looking amazing and choosing younger men to complement their lives. Celebrities are no exception. Just look at Jennifer Lopez and Casper or Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade just to name a couple. Dr. Kim consults with many women who are committed to maintaining their most youthful appearance and fighting the aging process every step of the way. This does not necessarily mean that they do not embrace their age and the wisdom that comes with it- it only means that having your most youthful and beautiful appearance matters. For many of these women plastic surgery procedures like breast augmentation and liposuction are the perfect complement to maintaining a shapely figure. Breast augmentation expands a woman’s wardrobe by as much as three times. Older women enjoy the ability to wear fashions that are considered”younger” as well as conservative fashions if they so choose. There are many women who are not comfortable with buying jeans that have special tummy panels or built-in but lifts. These women are proud to choose plastic surgery as an option, and understand that just as the aging process is not stagnant; neither should their choice be to maintain their most youthful appearance. It is not uncommon for women in this stage of life to use injectables including Botox to smooth the wrinkles on the forehead as well as crows feet on the outer corner of the eyes. Dermal fillers including Restylane and Juvederm help to add volume to the face in areas where patients have lost volume. Dr. Kim invites patients to schedule a consultation to determine which plastic surgery procedures will help them maintain their most youthful appearance.
