As the decades roll by, the aging process begins to accelerate. More mature adults have less skin elasticity than their younger counterparts and gravity has been taking its toll on soft tissues for generations. With people living longer and more productive lives, fewer patients are actually slowing down with advancing age. Many still feel young but their appearance does not concur. Breast reduction or breast lift surgery might make regular exercise more comfortable. A face or neck lift might put inner youth in greater harmony with external appearance. Revision surgery may be desirable now that excess skin has returned to the jaw line or upper eyelids. After successful bariatric surgery, a mature patient may now request body contouring surgery to fit properly into new clothes. Because medical conditions arise with advancing age, a focus on patient safety is paramount; even more reason to select a board certified plastic surgeon that only operates in accredited facilities.
