Delaying Retirement with Plastic Surgery is the New Baby Boomer Trend

Friday, September 25th, 2015

The number of cosmetic surgeries being performed all over the world has increased in the last few years. This does not affect the fact that these surgical procedures are among the most expensive operations undertaken, mainly because they are complex surgical operations that require specialized and skillful surgeons.

Among those that want to undergo plastic surgery are the boomers, as a way for them to stay competitive at work. On the other hand, some others wait until retirement, and consider a cosmetic surgical procedure as their greatest reward.

The most common cosmetic surgeries in the 55-plus age bracket are face-lift, forehead lift, ear reshaping, hair transplant, pectoral implants, and nose reshaping.

In the case of Margaret Cipparrone, 63 years old, her main reason why she wants to undergo plastic surgery is because she is not yet ready to retire. She is a county assistant prosecutor, and would like to keep working. She is financially stable and wants the school loans of her children paid off. She knows she is old but still would like to fit in her workforce, hence the need for cosmetic surgery. Despite her age, Cipparrone does not think that it is time for her to retire.

Another example is a lawyer, 64, who took a long vacation and instead had a face lift. It actually gotten her another ten more years of working in her company.

In line with this, private lenders are stepping in to finance the nips and tucks of these boomers. These firms establish relationships with cosmetic surgery facilities. The data of the lenders are showing that people in their 60s to 80s were asking for loans for plastic surgery such as eyelid lift, face lift and tummy tuck.

Generally, many boomers go through these plastic surgeries because they want to be useful to their families and to the society.
