Park City, UT (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Americans are becoming increasingly vain. So says the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
“For many people,” the ASAPS explains, “maintaining an attractive appearance can be a lot of work.”
“Whether it involves getting BOTOX® injections, dyeing hair, applying makeup, or (surgical) cosmetic procedures – such as liposuction, tummy tuck or breast augmentation – looking good can be time consuming.”
In some areas of the U.S., the ASAPS adds, cosmetic surgery rates are higher than average. But, overall, the total number of anti-aging cosmetic surgery procedures performed in recent years has skyrocketed.
A recent ASAPS report shows an astonishing 197% increase in the number of cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. since 1997. It also hints at Americans’ growing interest in surgical and non-surgical anti-aging strategies for a youthful appearance.
“The simple fact is that our faces and bodies continue to age each and every day,” says Shawn Miele for FaceForum. “Unhealthy habits and stressors accelerate that process and Americans want to look as young on the outside as they feel on the inside.”
“There are ways to control the aging process, though, which are intimately linked to lifestyle choices. Some help slow the aging process while others help reverse or erase the telltale signs of aging – which is why they become popular in the first place.”
FaceForum shares a variety of anti-aging “lifestyle secrets” in a newly-posted online article that gives readers an overview of both non-surgical and surgical options.
“Our goal is to help American consumers adopt a more youthful outlook,” explains Miele. “Whether they want to slow the aging process, look younger or feel better, we suggest ways they can do that.”
The anti-aging lifestyle “beauty tips” offered address a wide range of topics, such as diet, nutrition, skin care regimens, and anti-aging facial treatments.
The strategies and techniques outlined include consuming nutrient-rich whole foods to combat phytochemicals and understanding today’s popular anti-aging procedures.
