Dec 16, 2010/NewsRelease/ – The generation of peace, love, and change embarks on the main telecomutting saves gas as the oldest from the baby boomer generation turns 65 January, 1, 2011. Marked rich in divorce rates, competition in the work place by millennials, and the emergence from the “cougar”, the baby boomer generation has changed the bend on aging unlike previous generations. In 2009, the American Academy of Plastic surgery reported over 17 million cosmetic procedures performed in the usa, the majority of which contributed through the aging baby boomer population. Top procedures reported amongst baby boomers included: blepharoplasty, liposuction, abdominoplasty, and anti-aging treatments such as Botox.
Texas physician, Dr. Michael Escobedo of Escobedo Esthetics, “No 1 really wants to look like their neither parents nor grandparents generation. Nowadays, baby boomers need to compete with younger generations with the work place, but in the dating arena. Our objective would be to not only get people to look younger, but to allow them to regain the confidence they once been on their youth.”
This past year alone, Dr. Escobedo’s top cosmetic process was liposuction, performing over 200 treatments last year alone. Nearly 3/4th of Dr. Escobedo’s patients fell within the age range of 35-64. These alarming numbers in cosmetic surgery impact not only baby boomer aging habits, but alter the standard of cosmetic surgery from a once subject of taboo for an accepted aging preventative for proceeding generations.
One patient, who chose to remain anonymous, remarked, “I’m old, and I’m not trying to look like a twenty something. I would like to look very good and feel confident once more.”
