It seems that after a certain age, people assume they can’t get the plastic surgery that would revitalize their lives. This isn’t true. As with most surgeries, your ability to handle it isn’t determined by your age; rather, it’s determined by the state of your health. Yes, older people experience more health issues, but that’s no reason to dismiss plastic surgery. Instead, it’s a reason to have a conversation with our Board Certified plastic surgeon!
In today’s blog, we are going to talk about tummy tucks for older adults. Tummy tucks are the same as other procedures: there is no maximum age for them. If you have good health overall, you are not overweight, and you do not have serious medical conditions, a tummy tuck is an option for you. We just have to things for you to consider:
- Your risk of complications increases with age. Any surgical procedure will carry this increased risk.
- Your recovery period will be longer. Because your body can’t heal as efficiently as before, you will have to be patient. Your surgeon will be able to tell you what to expect.
Now for some great news!
- A tummy tuck can benefit you more than a younger person, because it will address the sagging we all get as we age.
- You will find yourself standing straighter and feeling bolder. You are never too old to feel your best!
