Cosmetic surgery versus growing old gracefully

Cosmetic surgery versus growing old gracefully

Firstly we must recognize that growing older happens to us all and is not a crime! Searching for eternal youth will ultimately fail and is a futile exercise.

The 50 year old trying to look 20. We are the age we are, and there’s absolutely nothing we can do about it. In the cold light of day, frankly these people look ridiculous.

They are mostly but certainly not exclusively female. Conversely doesn’t the 50 year old who dresses smart but appropriately get real admiring glances rather than the suppressed smirk?

We see it as all about looking the very best you can for your age! There are areas that we ourselves can work on to stay looking good, and healthy. Exercise and a balanced diet will certainly help. Is cosmetic surgery cheating?

We don’t subscribe to that idea. We believe that nature sometimes needs a bit of a helping hand. We firmly believe in cosmetic surgery practices that will enhance your appearance and go a long way towards that goal of making you look the best you can.

You can find many advertisements for cosmetic surgery featuring models with perfect skin tone, fabulous figures, gleaming white teeth, photos of well-known personalities and so on.

Is this the real world? How many people do you actually know that look like a model? In actual fact, if you saw many of the famous models outside of a studio, with no make-up on and without their photos being air-brushed, they would look like the rest of us. Ordinary!

This is why we never doctor our photos. They are of genuine people who in some cases have just had surgery or have little or no make-up on.  We want our real photos of real people to represent the ethos of our highly trained and skilful surgical team.  They will be honest and realistic about what is possible, not promise you the earth only to leave you disappointed.

They are however cosmetic/plastic surgeons and not miracle workers. However, they can help you towards getting those admiring glances. When people say someone looks ‘great for their age’ it’s a massive compliment.

Here below we have a marvellous image of 3 elderly ladies enjoying themselves. Although obviously quite comfortable with themselves. they are clearly elderly. Below that is another image of a typical steerotype elderly lady

who looks as if she would  not hesitate to give you the “handbag” treatment if you steeped out of line.

Here below is a really good example Libby (our M.D. age 62)  of what we can do to combine the “young at heart”  with a face to match on the outside:
