More Seniors getting Plastic Surgery

September 9, 2015

shutterstock_79350769Would you consider getting plastic surgery at the age of 80? While this is not a common occurrence, it does occur. In fact, research reveals that the number of cosmetic patients over the age of 65 has grown substantially. Possible causes of this trend could be the desire to look and feel better, the advancements in plastic surgery, seeking a new job, the reduced stigma associated with facial procedures and the fact that many people are living longer. One thing to keep in mind is the additional risks and complications that could occur in someone who is past the age of 65 due to various illnesses or health problems. At Sistine Plastic Surgery, we believe in explaining all risks thoroughly to ensure that patients know exactly what to expect after any surgical or non-surgical procedure. Contact us at 412.621.FACE (3223) to find out if you are a good candidate for a facial cosmetic procedure with Dr. Paul Leong. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
