An 83-year-old woman in Arizona got breast implants recently. Her reasons were ordinary – she wanted a change in the way she looked and she wanted a boost in confidence. Her doctor said she was fit enough for the surgery and was therefore permitted to go ahead with it. Health really is the determining factor. As many people say, age is just a number and you’re only as old as you feel.
I think it’s great. At our plastic surgery practice in Folsom, we take care of a few older patients, many of whom are able to continue feeling vibrant and robust after their procedures. If the patient is healthy, there’s really no limit to which procedures they can get, from Dysport and facials to breast surgery and liposuction.
Eighty-three may not be young, but it’s not as old as it used to be. People are living longer and they want to enjoy the years they have left, feeling and looking as good as they can.
We thought it was an interesting story and wanted to share it with you. How old is too old for plastic surgery?
