Today, global economic crisis has prompted older individuals to hang onto their jobs instead of opting for early retirement. Unfortunately, those in their 40s, 50s and even 60s must compete with those in their 20s and 30s for jobs. While older individuals may have experience and dependability behind them, managers the world over often prefer that younger individuals hold down the front lines, at least in high-visibility career fields. Cosmetic surgical facelifts are on the rise around the globe in direct response to this growing pressure and competition.
Any facelift, or rhytidectomy, treatment or procedure is considered cosmetic surgery. It is generally sought as a procedure to help improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck area. A facelift may help to improve sagging; creases, and loss of muscle tone, as well as reduce the appearance of loose skin or fatty deposits in the jaw or neck area. While a facelift offers many years of benefits, it is not designed, nor can it, halt the aging process.
Unfortunately, the average cost of a full facelift in the United States or Britain can range between $6,000 and $15,000 but some may be as much as $25,000! However, in South Africa, South America or Asia, the same procedure typically costs less than $3,000.
The Grand Resort Bad Ragaz in Switzerland offers year-round luxury for cosmetic surgery patients at huge savings, as does CTG Healthcare Group in Izmir, Turkey. This is not due to lack of skill, training or certification, but different health system management that also lacks the need for outrageous malpractice insurance.
