China’s cosmetic surgery industry is expected to double in value from 400 billion to 800 million yuan by 2019, reports a recent article at the South China Morning Post. This dramatic increase makes the Asian giant the world’s third largest market for cosmetic surgery, with facial rejuvenation procedures leading the pack in popularity. This indicates an overall growth worldwide in demand among men and women who wish to take years off the appearance of their skin and face and remain competitive personally and professionally. As improved methods of retaining a youthful appearance and rejuvenating facial skin became available, it is not surprising that more and more people from Beijing to Beverly Hills are seeking out these options.
While buttock and breast augmentation remain the most talked about plastic surgeries, procedures such as facelifts, eyelid surgery, and ear and nose surgeries are among the most popular when it comes to maintaining a youthful appearance.
- Whatever part of the world you live in, age, stress, sun damage, and other environmental factors contribute to a reduction in elasticity, deep creases, and blemishes on the face. When the skin loses its elasticity, it can create folds and fat deposits around the neck, as well as jowls around the jaw line; all of which can make a face look older than it actually is. A surgical facelift procedure can actually shed years from the facial skin by tightening up the muscles and skin in the face and neck. For those seeking a more temporary fix, Botox and facial fillers are also highly viable options.
- Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is useful for eliminating those dreaded crow’s feet or sagging and bagging around the eyes. Just like the delicate tissue of the face, this skin around the eyes can lose its elasticity and further age the face. Fortunately, as the medical group explains, this surgical procedure can dramatically bring new life to the windows to the soul.
- Many people are surprised to learn that the ears and nose never stop growing. This is one of many reasons why many people seek out rhinoplasty procedures which can reshape or reduce these features and help breathe new life into one’s facial appearance, the medical group notes. What’s more, the surgery can be done in a remarkably subtle way, so that others might simply assume that the patient has enjoyed a long, relaxing holiday.
