As you enter your golden years, you may begin to feel a little bit less than golden. If you’ve started noticing some wrinkles that weren’t there a few years before or a little less perkiness in your skin, rest assured that you have great options for looking your best thanks to the numerous improvements in plastic surgery over the last 20 years. With the expertise of a board certified Chicago plastic surgeon, both surgical and noninvasive procedures can help you feel more confident and more like yourself as you enjoy the freedom and spontaneity of your golden years.
New Study Shows Older Patients Can Undergo Plastic Surgery with Confidence
A new study out of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that you can undergo plastic surgery just as safely as your younger friends. The study, which was completed late last year, found that people over the age of 65 are just as unlikely to suffer from plastic surgery complications as people under the age of 65. Specifically, the rate of complications in people over 65 was 1.94%. The rate among younger patients was 1.84%.
This is great news for both men and women who want to rejuvenate their appearance. Whether you’re looking for a Chicago plastic surgeon to banish crow’s feet, give your breasts a lift, or get rid of that little pooch in your belly, you can feel more like yourself by choosing to explore your cosmetic surgery options.
