Thanks to improvements in science and technology plastic surgeons are able to do more minimally invasive procedures, without general anesthesia and without hospitalization.
People are living longer, and the baby boomer generation started turning 65 five years ago, so there are more people over 65 than in the past. But even accounting for that, the rate of eyelid surgeries in that age group has risen 62 percent and the rate of facelifts has doubled.
