( - According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 29 percent of all cosmetic surgeries are on people between the ages of 51 and 64. Those 65 or older make up another 8 percent. Senior citizens are embracing the chance to boost self-confidence by correcting some of the bothersome signs of aging. A visit to Virginia Beach nose surgeon and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kyle S. Choe can help you to keep looking and feeling younger in your golden years.

Brow Lift

Both men and women seek brow lifts to help reduce the signs of aging along the brow and forehead area. Typically, the most noticeable issues are deep creases and lines that form between the eyebrows.  These lines have a tendency to make seniors look angry or older than they are. Many of Dr. Choe's VA brow lift patients opt to pair the procedure with others like a blepharoplasty, facelift, or neck lift for more dramatic and longer lasting results.

Neck Lift

Ask an older man or woman about the worst sign of aging and you'll likely hear answers involving the neck. The floppy jowls that remind people of a turkey waddle is a common complaint. A weakened platysma muscle is to blame, and a neck lift helps correct it by giving you a toned, younger looking neckline. Incisions are placed behind the ears or tucked under the chin, so people will not notice scars after you've healed. A neck lift is often paired with liposuction of the neck. With excess fat removed and tighter skin and muscles, you look years younger. Many of Dr. Choe's VA neck lift patients find that results last between 5 and 10 years.


Few people think of the nose being affected by age. However, reduced fatty deposits can change the nose's appearance. Living with a nose that reduces self-esteem is unnecessary when a rhinoplasty improves the appearance. During surgery, bone and cartilage are removed or altered to create the desired shape. In most cases, you go home the same day. Doctors remove sutures after three days, and the cast is removed after a week. You can get back to light activities when the cast is removed and return to strenuous activities after three or four weeks.

Discuss a brow lift, neck lift, or rhinoplasty with a facial cosmetic surgeon to see if plastic surgery is right for you. Contact Dr. Kyle Choe, a Virginia Beach nose surgeon and facial rejuvenation specialist, and learn about these three common procedures, among others.
