Mature man and woman smiling and laughing together while sitting outside.The way we meet new people has drastically changed in a relatively short amount of time. More and more people of all ages, including baby boomers, are turning to online dating to meet potential love interests.

But with such a heavy focus on pictures, getting back into the dating scene can be daunting. That’s one of the reasons why plastic surgeons speculate that more men and women over 55 are opting for cosmetic treatments.

When Swiping Right to Cosmetic Surgery Is a Match

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 50,000 more people aged 55 and older opted for cosmetic treatments in 2018 than in 2017. With a divorce rate that’s nearly doubled in the last two decades and a surge of boomers back on the dating scene, the numbers make sense.

More and more baby boomers are getting cosmetic surgery to look as energized and youthful as they feel.

But it is important to note that baby boomers aren’t interested in trying to look like their 20-year-old selves again. Instead, the goal is to look like a revitalized and refreshed version of themselves, topped with a boost of self-confidence.

Which Cosmetic Treatments Are Popular among Baby Boomers?

So what are the best cosmetic treatments for baby boomers? With an emphasis on profile pictures on dating sites, many are interested in facial plastic surgeries like eyelid lifts, facelifts and nose jobs. Nonsurgical treatments like the “liquid facelift,” which utilizes injectables like BOTOX and dermal fillers have also become quite popular.
