Plastic Surgery: Is Age Just A Number?

HKB Renaissance Plastic Surgery Primary City Charlotte, NC

When senior citizens consider pursuing plastic surgery, they almost always have one question: Am I too old for plastic surgery?

We’re happy to tell you that, if you are in good physical health, your risk as a senior citizen is no greater than it is for younger patients. In fact, there have been numerous studies performed on women of various ages proving that the risk rates for women over 65 are similar to those for younger women. When it comes to factors that determine a patient’s candidacy for plastic surgery, age is low on the list, far preceded by factors like past surgeries, fitness, medical history, medications, and overall health.

That being said, although age might not be the most reliable factor for predicting risk, it is of special importance that elderly patients undergo extensive health screening prior to their procedure to ensure that the recovery process will be as smooth and painless as possible.

Although breast reconstruction and body contouring procedures have less of a demand in the over-65 community, eye rejuvenation and facelifts are becoming increasingly common.

If you or someone you know is a senior citizen considering plastic surgery, we have a few tips:

1. Find a board-certified plastic surgeon who cares about your individual needs and health. (Sounds like a certain HKB Renaissance, if you ask us!)
2. Be sure to have realistic expectations when discussing goals with your plastic surgeon.
3. Come prepared to talk…about everything. Whether it’s your health history, or personal concerns, be prepared to talk about it in detail.
