As the latest statistics show, plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine are gaining popularity every year. More and more men and women are undergoing expensive procedures that sometimes arouse controversy. Different eye color, dimples in the cheeks, new face or change of sex – everything is already possible today.
Already in ancient times, the cult of youth and beauty set the desired direction for change for those who, regardless of the passage of time, wanted to keep their youth or correct what they thought should be improved in beauty. The means to achieve these goals were and are plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine procedures, which as the knowledge and medical practice began to enable almost unlimited interference in their own body. Nowadays, the procedures used by plastic surgery (clinic) are becoming more and more available and popular due to both decreasing costs and easier contact with specialists, as well as the ever-increasing desire to increase self-worth, attractiveness and even the desire to become like admired celebrities.

Although the proportions are slowly but clearly noticeable.
Treatment with the trademark of the patient’s age?
Each age group has its own trademark, which is the procedure which, according to statistical data, is the most popular for her. Breast augmentation dominates in patients aged 19-34. Correction of protruding ears predominates in the group of people of both sexes under the age of 18. Seniors, on the other hand, prefer eyelid surgery, and liposuction, i.e. liposuction (especially from the abdomen and hips) dominates both among 35-50-year-olds and older, in the 51-64 age range.
