Who Says Face Lifts Are Dangerous If You’re Over 65?
Most medical professionals have long cautioned men and women over the age of 65 to think long and hard about undergoing a surgical face lift. Infection can be difficult to treat and even though all the bases to insure success have been covered, the results may not be considered acceptable.
Most medical professionals have long cautioned men and women over the age of 65 to think long and hard about undergoing a surgical face lift.
Usually the warnings come because the ideal surgical candidate is substantially younger, has no medical condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes or cancer that might interfere with a procedure; and most physicians prefer a patient who is not taking drugs or medications that would cause excessive bleeding or otherwise create another condition.
Many men and women in the 65+ age group have long-standing medical conditions that require special attention; both the doctor and the patient must carefully consider the ramifications of elective surgery so that a two or three hour procedure can be successfully performed.
Another consideration for this age group is that having a face lift can set the stage to develop infection at the incision site. Infection can be difficult to treat and even though all the bases to insure success have been covered, the results may not be considered acceptable.
The risks seem to escalate as the years tick by. Subjecting yourself to anesthesia and the lingering perils of recuperation means that as a patient, the healthier you are the greater likelihood of a successful outcome.
Things can go wrong. Whether it is lax medical practices with untrained practioners or procedures performed outside the US, insufficient safeguards or the nature of the procedure itself, complications can arise.
Let’s say you want to do something to help your face look younger and better but you’re afraid of facial plastic surgery. Maybe you’ve been influenced by those tell-tale weekly rags like the National Enquirer, Star Magazine and Globe Magazine depicting faces of well known celebs that have gone under the knife. Celebs and entertainers typically have lots of money -maybe more than you have. We plainly see those who have undergone an assortment of facial procedures and sadly, the surgeon has missed the mark. What if this type of disfiguration would happen to you?
Beauty that comes from a syringe or a surgical procedure may last for years but remember the root cause of an aging face has not been corrected.
Propping up your face with injections that plump and paralyze may create the illusion of youth temporarily but injections have to be routinely repeated. After several years of trying to fool Mother Nature your face may look misshapen because those soft, sagging facial muscles continue to elongate.
Sagging facial muscles drag and stretch your skin. Hooded eyes, droopy cheeks, a double chin, the dreaded wattle and more can show up on the face making one look older. Just thinking that you might resemble your great aunt Hilda sends shivers up your spine – there’s no way you want to look like her in your golden years.
So, you’d better begin exercising those lax facial muscles if you want to look sensational. Facial exercise?
Facial exercise smoothes your skin while the action lifts and tightens the underlying muscles of the face. What could be easier? Imagine, spending only a few minutes each day using an easy, proven, specialized exercise technique in the privacy of your home and in just weeks, your efforts will be noticeable as you see and feel lifting and toning of those droopy facial features.
Just like resistance exercise works for the body to tighten hips, tummy, waist and thighs, the very same principles can be applied to the face to create the look and power of a more youthful, better looking face.
Facial exercise is a natural process so there is no concern for risk or damage, the movements have been proven to tighten, lift and tone sagging facial muscles, there is no large outlay of cash or return visits to see a medical person and best of all, you look like you did years ago.
