  • From Breast Augmentation To Botox: Top Plastic Surgery Choices For Gen X-ers

Generation Xers are between the ages of 39 and 54 years of age. In this article, we’ll be providing a rundown of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for patients in this age group, according to the 2017 report by the American Plastic Surgery. 

Looking for inspiration for anti-ageing and cosmetic enhancement procedures? Look no further than our roundup of what's popular among Gen Xers! However, it’s always important to remember that while trending procedures can help you see what options are available, the best procedure depends on what best addresses your needs. For this reason, you should discuss options with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon before committing to a treatment plan.

Cosmetic Procedures: 


Liposuction is often used to reduce excess fat on the body and create a more contoured, smooth appearance. While the American Society of Plastic Surgeons classes liposuction as a surgical procedure, Liposuction is a popular and less-invasive alternative to other surgical contouring options for busy patients who want minimal downtime.


Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is an immensely popular and effective anti ageing procedure. Gen Xers make up 42% of all people who get this surgery. An eyelid lift reduces sagging skin on the upper eyelid. This creates a more open, youthful shape and can also prevent the obstruction of vision.


Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentations are perennially popular among all age groups. Women in their 40s and 50s may opt for this procedure to enhance their bust shape after having children, to balance the natural ageing process, or simply because they’ve always wanted a more enhanced figure. Some patients also combine a breast augmentation with a breast lift for a more rejuvenated bustline. 


Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck tightens the abdominal wall and removes excess fat. Many women opt for this procedure once they are done having children, or after significant weight loss. This procedure can be done alone as well as in conjunction with procedures such as a mommy makeover.


Nose Reshaping

At any age, nose reshaping can entirely alter the look of the face. Increasing or reducing the size of your nose can change how your profile, jawline, cheeks, and forehead balance.


Top Minimally-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures

In the 40’s the skin’s natural life cycle is arrested, and this can become apparent in numerous ways. In the early 50s, the skin barrier function becomes weaker and it can be tricker for the skin to remain hydrated.

For this reason, the men and women in Gen X appear to prioritize treatments that restore volume as well as resurface the skin.

Additionally, like many age groups, women in this age category opt for laser hair removal to restore smooth, clear skin.


Long established as an anti-ageing solution, Botox can be used to smooth wrinkles in men, and can also treat conditions such as excessive sweating, chronic migraines, and a gummy smile.



Fillers are used to add volume and are popular among young and old patients alike. Younger patients may opt for fillers in order to get plumper lips or enhance their face shape, while older patients can use them to restore lost volume in the cheek area.


Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are an effective way to remove any surface imperfections on the skin, such as cosmetics and fine lines. Because a chemical peels composition and strength can be tailored to the patient, it’s no wonder it’s a popular procedure for a wide range of patients.


Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a simple way to get rid of leg, underarm, or facial hair, virtually permanently.



Like chemical peels, microdermabrasion targets the skin’s surface imperfections. It’s a gentler version of the dermabrasion procedure, and is often favoured by younger patients who are just beginning to consider skin resurfacing: no wonder it’s a hit with Gen X-ers.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
