Last month the mainstream media was talking about baby boomers receiving plastic surgery and the reason was because both men and women wanted to look as young as they felt. Although that statement still stands to be true, a recent reporter’s outreach to his following in Portland, Oregon sheds some additional reasoning as to why there has been a trend for baby boomers receiving plastic surgery; jobs. According to the AARP, on average, laid off workers 55 and over are unemployed for 25.2 weeks compared to younger workers who are unemployed for 20.6 weeks. Another reason is because traditional surgery is not the only option available for people interested in turning back the clock. Lasers, Botox, facial fillers, Pelleve’, & Ulthera are all popular non-surgical options being used today. And although results are not as long lasting as traditional surgery, they can be very effective and affordable.
