Dr. Devgan is interviewed by Jolene Edgar on why women are getting facelifts younger than ever. Generation X is taking precautions to not age as quickly as the women before them. They are having facelifts in even their 40s.
In response to why they have been going under the knife at an earlier age, Dr. Devgan’s response is clear, “Aiming to maintain their current visage—to keep their reflections recognizable for as long as possible—they’ve adopted a new approach to aging. They want to look better, but still the same, and having a facelift at a younger age allows that magical paradox to occur.” The under-50 set now comprises nearly a third of Dr. Devgan’s facelift.
Injectables are not having the lasting affect Generation X wants. According to Dr. Devgan, “If you have at least a centimeter of pinchable laxity at the level of the jowls, jawline or nasolabial folds, you have to acknowledge that injectables aren’t going to make that go away.” Dr. Devgan also says “those who overindulge by chasing folds and slack skin with a syringe can wind up looking very clownish.
