How old is too old for cosmetic procedures? Some doctors write that “deeply-etched facial lines that develop as patients age ‘are caused by repeated folding of the skin and include lines of facial expression and sleep lines,’ and that in young adulthood these lines predict ‘the unique pattern of facial wrinkling that will be seen without expression years later.’” Those in their 20s or 30s that take the time to take care of their skin (i.e. with Botox or Cosmetic Surgery) have lesser chance of getting those deeply-etched facial lines by the time they’re in their 40s and 60s.
Positive and Negative of Getting Aesthetic Treatments Early
While getting Facial Cosmetic Procedures for skin as early as possible can help keep wrinkles at bay later in life, some doctors see the downside of going that route. Some say this mindset could create “plastic” people who cannot handle aging the natural way and another doctor suggested that technology in Plastic Surgery Procedures and treatments are always improving, so this argument is moot. One doctor suggests that “overall, it is best to have a discussion with the individual and prepare a plan of action and an ongoing concept of how to diminish signs of aging over time.” And, also “this approach is highly successful and leads to less intervention in later years and, surprisingly, less expenditure over the years.”
Plastic Surgery Should Cater to Individual Needs
When it comes to plastic surgery, patients need to be assessed on an individual basis. At Dr. Angelchik’s practice, we do just that. We understand that although all our patients have similar goals, each patient has needs that are different from others. What may work for one patient may not work for another. If you have a certain plastic surgery procedure in mind and want to see if you qualify, contact Dr. Angelchik’s office to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
