Too Old For Plastic Surgery?

Can a person be too old for plastic surgery? This is a question that many older patients think about.

Over the past 30 years, life expectancy has increased dramatically. Because seniors are now living longer, they not only desire a good quality of life, but they want to look their best at the same time! Baby boomers have worked hard their entire lives and are now at the stage financially where they are able to invest in themselves and pursue enhancements like facial plastic surgery.

Enhancing Your Appearance To Look As Vital And Healthy As Possible

What is the age limit?

Recent statistics shows that over 30% of the plastic surgery is performed on people over the age of 55. Not only women are getting in on the action, but men are wanting to revitalize their faces and recapture a bit of youth as well.

Cosmetic surgery is not about simply maintaining your youth, but about enhancing your appearance to look as vital and healthy as possible. This aids in a person’s overall sense of well-being and happiness. Instead of bemoaning the fact that they are aging, seniors want to be content that they look their best.

Understanding What Goals The Patient Would Like To Achieve

Dr. Torgerson Consults With Everyone

Dr. Torgerson likes to consult with anyone considering facial plastic surgery because it is essential that he understands what goals the patient would like to achieve, but also to caution them that a cosmetic procedure enabling them to look 30 years younger is unrealistic.

It is also important for anyone considering plastic surgery to also be in good health. Dr. Torgerson would not recommend surgery for anyone who is already experiencing several health issues. All patients who book facial plastic surgery at Dr. Torgerson’s private surgery centre in Toronto must complete blood tests and a chest X-ray as well as submit a physical health report from their family doctor. Some patients may even need to undergo an ECG. This is to ensure that the utmost safety of the patient has been considered and everyone can rest assured that cosmetic surgery will be a right fit for them health-wise.
