Results of a recent survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery say that eyelid surgery (i.e. blepharoplasty) increased by 42 percent last year. Over 60,000 procedures were performed by members of the society, a figure they say indicates a rising trend in facial cosmetic enhancement.
According to the Academy, the “baby boomer generation” is responsible for this trend; men and women in their 50s and 60s who aren’t “ready to concede their looks just yet.” Statistics show that the average age of patient undergoing eyelid surgery is 52.3 years.
