We know what you’re thinking already, please, oh please, do not mention that number to me. In our 30’s, we all thought that this was our prime time to enjoy all the fruits of our labor in our twenties, but this is just too much. At High Point Plastic Surgery, we say forget about your thirties as your prime years and think the best of your forties! As your dive into flirty forty, you’re ready to take on the world, but there are just a few things you should consider to keep any signs of aging far from visible. Thankfully we have a cheat sheet of the top 3 procedures for your 40’s to help get you back into the best cosmetic shape or your life.

1. Breast Lift

Depending on what you’ve experienced in your life with multiple pregnancies and fluctuations in weight, your breasts have likely been affected. The positioning of the breasts starts to get lower and lower naturally as the ligaments supporting the breasts yields to years of stress and added weight from milk production, breastfeeding, and weight gain. It’s only natural for the breasts to sag slightly since there virtually isn’t any muscle within them, simply glands, fatty tissues, lymph nodes and supporting ligaments.

A breast lift procedure will help to reposition the level of the breasts from a lowered, sagging position to a raised and lifted look. We often tell our clients to take the pencil test to see how if they’re a candidate for breast lift. Place a pencil in the fold of your breast and see if it holds; if it stays in place, chances are your girls need a raise. It’s important to know that the breast lift will not enhance the size of your breasts, only promote them to a higher position. If your nipples are pointing downward, it can make your breasts start to look sad, and no one wants that. Take that gravity!

2. Mini Facelift

Full facelift procedures just aren’t for everyone. At this point in your life, you may only need a little lift, and that’s just what the mini facelift can do for you. The mini facelift can help correct mild sagging to correct wrinkles, fine lines and remove any excess skin from weight loss and hormonal changes. Not only are the incisions done within this procedure smaller and less noticeable after the healing process, but the recovery time is next to none compared to full facelift procedures.

If you’re looking to shave off a few years and maintain that youthful, gorgeous skin of yours, then think about this mini lift to revitalize the look of your skin to put your best face forward. The mini-facelift also nips minor neck sagging in the bud. Don’t let the beginnings of a turkey neck stop you from taking over the world. Get rid of jowls and Marionette lines too with this procedure at High Point Plastic Surgery.

3. Tummy Tuck

As we age many of us develop midsection cushion to help make the impact of maturity easier, but the added tummy fatty deposits only make it worse. The core of your body relays your health and inner strength. A tummy tuck procedure will help you restore your pre-baby body and boost your confidence as you work on your midsection. For those of our clients that have been through any major weight loss of 50 pounds or more and have kept it off, we know some areas of excess skin could use a snip. Get rid of stubborn body fat and the excess skin with this procedure. It will change the way you feel in your skinny jeans! And yes, you can still wear those.
