Are You Too Old for Facial Plastic Surgery?
The jowls, the pouches, the hooded eyes looking back at you in the mirror are causing a huge drop in the confidence you once exuded.Â Here you are, middle aged to late adult and the aging you see in your face needs to be addressed if you want to look and feel on top of the game of life.
You know you will never look eighteen again nor will you have those rock hard abs and slim thighs that Matthew McConaughy loves in a woman but hey, you know you do not want to look like your Mom when she hit her middle stride or Great Aunt Helen when she developed the dreaded wattle that greatly aged her once beautiful face.
The smorgasbord of anti- aging choices may have you baffled.Â After consulting with those who specialize in plastic surgery, dermatology, skin care, those you love, friends who have had procedures and those who haven't; you now are armed with the latest and up-to-date arsenal of anti-aging procedures and methods that promote an illusionary promise to turn back the clock.Â
Yes, you want a younger looking face, but what's this?Â Have you waited too long to have a successful surgical facelift?Â Just how old is too old and these lists of complications and warnings, do they apply to everyone?
After the Donda West heart stopping tragedy, we now know that many men and women over the age of fifty have physical conditions such as issues with uncontrolled blood pressure, the beginning of heart disease, hematoma possibilities due to thin skin and previous health constraints that may create big red warning flags to a surgeon.Â
Previous surgeries, drug reactions, medications and even unrealistic expectations may prevent you from having a successful face lift surgery.
Potential risks and complications that vary in severity are very real and you must proceed cautiously.Â Plastic surgery does not come with a money back guarantee and the results are permanent.
Even a simple eye lift may leave you dissatisfied with the results as you cope with swelling, eyelids that no longer close and excessive tearing.Â Infection and scarring are other risks that can present a challenge to your good looks.
Re-inventing yourself using surgery may not be for you.Â
Using injections also has drawbacks.Â Allowing foreign substances to be injected over and over year after year to plump and paralyze your sagging features may not always produce the desired effect as aging continues to affect the symmetry of your face. Â
Plumping up moderate not too deep lines and wrinkles is an art and when you choose injections you may not always like the results.Â Too, these temporary measures can have serious side effects that go far beyond redness and irritation at the injection site.
Perhaps surgery and injections are not appealing; the "done" look so prevalent in today's society might be right for some, but maybe not right for you.Â Benefits, precautions, adverse warnings and risks can be confusing.
An option that makes absolute sense if you really, truly desire a younger looking face is exercise.Â
Facial exercise that uses resistance and contraction will slowly and steadily rebuild your facial muscles so they plump up.Â This action makes your skin look healthier; it acts and feels younger and smoother.
Just as exercise works for your body to sculpt and trim waist, tummy, hips and thighs, facial exercise can create a younger, more vibrant appearance when oxygenated blood is forced throughout the facial area.Â
The face immediately begins to reflect the benefit of these exercises and every area of the face can be lifted, sculpted and refined with simple movements that are easy to understand and execute.
Will you look like you're twenty again?Â No, but if you want to look five, ten, even fifteen years younger, facial exercise is the safest procedure around.Â Think of it as a facelift without side effects.
Watch your face transform as the lines smooth and a youthful contour develops right before your eyes.Â You'll save thousands of dollars and never be at risk for the sake of beauty.Â Â Now when you look in the mirror, you'll want to say, "Well, hello gorgeous!"
