In fact, many baby boomers now working longer than expected, are turning to plastic surgery and anti-aging skin care treatments to gain a competitive advantage in the workplace, according to a recent study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

"The baby boomer generation is very different from their older cohorts", says Bergen County, New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Zubowski. "They are young at heart, more active and involved, and they want their faces and bodies to reflect this youthfulness."

Dr. Zubowski, recently featured as the breast augmentation surgeon on Real Housewives of New Jersey of New Jersey, says the procedures women are choosing at his Bergen County practice include BOTOX treatment to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and address furrowing of the brow; chemical peels to eliminate fine lines, skin discoloration, and improve the skin's texture; breast lift to reshape and raise the breasts; face lift to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck; and tummy tuck to tighten a sagging abdomen. Topping the list for men at his Paramus office are hair transplants, eyelid surgery to rejuvenate the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids, and calf implants.
