AAFPRS Survey Reveals Changing Attitudes on Women Ageing
In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), conducted a groundbreaking survey of over 500 women age fifty and over to get their take on the changing face of fifty.
On average, 69% of women ages 45-60, reported feeling at least six years younger than their chronological age. The survey also revealed that women are more open than ever to both surgical and non-surgical treatments to slow down the visible signs of aging. 72% of women ages 45-60 have tried skin peels, while 50% have had filler injections, and 15% have gone under the knife for cosmetic facial surgery.
“Women in their fifties want to feel sexy, vibrant, beautiful and desirable, but they demand a natural result – not the frozen, windblown look of previous generations,” says Dr Thevendra.
“They simply want to be the best, most confident version of themselves. The constant advances in safe and effective minimally invasive and non-invasive treatment options are truly empowering women to age backwards.”
May 2014 marks the 50th Anniversary of the AAFPRS.
