Plastic surgery to erase the signs of aging Due to bad lifestyle habits or a genetic predisposition, it is often the case that our bodies don’t show the age we feel inside. There are many people who are active and with a young soul trapped in a body affected by the passing of time and with its appearance altered by the mistakes of the past. Smoking, overeating, and a lack of exercise can have a negative impact on the body that can become visible even from an early age. Even if the patient changes these lifestyle habits, the damage they have already done on the body is difficult to erase, unless using plastic surgery. There are many reasons why people seek help from plastic surgery to erase the signs of aging. One of them is wanting to look younger for a new partner. More and more people nowadays start families later on in life with a different partner. Many women find themselves feeling young and with a desire to get a new lease on life in their late 40s, with almost adult children and a relationship that ended after many years of living together. It is only natural for these women to try again and start new families and relationships with people that are better for them. But the reality is that despite feeling young, their bodies are probably already wearing the signs of multiple pregnancies, weight fluctuations, and also the natural process of aging. In many cases, the signs of aging that are visible on the body are pretty similar for men and women, such as stubborn fat pockets in the abdomen and the flanks that are difficult to eliminate with exercise and diet. Also, there is a certain level of skin sagginess and tissue atrophy, especially on the breasts for women. The most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures to erase the signs of aging are liposuction, tummy tuck, gynecomastia, and breast lift. Other lifting procedures might be necessary, depending on the age and condition of the patient. Liposuction is used to eliminate the fat deposits that are difficult to target with other methods and provides impressive results when the patient has a good skin tonus. If the skin has lost elasticity, chances are the plastic surgeon will advise you to combine liposuction with other procedures to eliminate the excess skin. The tummy tuck is one of the procedures performed with the purpose of strengthening loose abdominal muscles and eliminating the excess skin and fat tissue from the abdominal area. The breasts are also affected by the passing of time, and their appearance can change a lot over the years, especially if the woman has had multiple pregnancies or weight fluctuations. With time, the breasts can develop breast ptosis that is characterized by a lack of firmness and perkiness of the breasts. Undergoing a breast lift can correct this issue and give the breasts a more youthful appearance.
