Boulder Plastic Surgery Provides a Range of Plastic Surgery Options for Seniors
As we age, skin changes texture; it thickens in some areas and thins in others. Sun damage also becomes more apparent, and many people find themselves seeking to reduce these various signs of aging. While it is true that not everyone is an ideal candidate for every type of procedure, with careful screening and consideration many seniors are able to undergo various cosmetic procedures. Properly screened older patients generally do very well with their surgeries and report high levels of satisfaction with their results. At Boulder Plastic Surgery, we perform a wide range of cosmetic procedures for seniors in Boulder and the surrounding areas. Contact us for more information and to discuss whether cosmetic surgery is right for you.
We Offer a Number of Anti-Aging Procedures
Many Americans over the age of 65 consider some form of cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance. While it is true that not all seniors are good candidates due to pre-existing health conditions, many are able to undergo treatments and are very pleased with the results. Health conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes need to be taken into consideration before undergoing a procedure. It is also important to note that as we age we are more likely to have complications as a result of anesthesia, and our bodies heal more slowly than when we were younger.
Older patients considering surgery must also be aware of the limits of cosmetic surgery. “Lunchtime” procedures such as facial fillers and Botox are not generally recommended for older patients. Popular surgeries among seniors include neck lifts, eyelid surgeries, and face lifts. Non-invasive procedures do not produce the types of results that these surgeries can.
At Boulder Plastic Surgery, we perform a wide range of procedures for both the face and the body. Examples include:
- Eyelid surgery
- Forehead lift
- Ear resculpting
- Facial implants
- Body contouring
- Tummy tucks
- Laser vein therapy
- Skin resurfacing
