Will Your Surgery Date?

This question refers to the possibility that some years down the line the results of a cosmetic procedure could no longer look the same as it did when it was originally undertaken.

You should indeed think over your decisions carefully and in this article we will be pointing out a few points to keep in mind around the subject of aging against cosmetic procedures.

Not All Results Are Permanent

Not all cosmetic procedures provide permanent results. So if you want to keep the results going you must ensure you have an appropriate budget to follow up any additional surgeries that would be needed to maintain the results. It might be surprising to learn that sometimes a follow-up procedure can cost just as much as the first one. This is why it is essential to understand how often you will be requiring surgery after the initial procedure. Keep in mind that whilst some establishments will have a finance option so you do not have to pay for all treatments in one go, others will not and you will be expected to provide a full upfront cost.

Implants Require Replacement

Now, a breast implant does not expire as such. Having said that they also come with no guarantee that they will last a lifetime. On average, a saline or silicone implant will last between 10 to 20 years, so this is something to be considered as a budget will need to be formed in the mind of the eventual replacements.

Healthy Lifestyles Help

One thing that can help maintain lasting results is a healthy lifestyle, with some surgeries demanding a permanent lifestyle change. Tummy tucks and liposuction are examples, requiring a healthy diet and an active lifestyle. If this does not happen a person could be likely to put weight back on in other places.

When a person has breast augmentation by fat transfer or breast reduction it is permanent, however, breast size can be impacted by weight gain or loss. With this in mind, those undergoing the procedure would need to make sure they were prepared to maintain a healthy and stable weight after the surgery has taken place.

Surgery Does Not Prevent The Ageing Process

Just because someone has had a procedure, ageing doesn’t suddenly stop for them. The skin will still push down over time and soft tissues will be vulnerable to that pressure. It may be that someone finds they would like some revisions on the work that they have had done, due to the effects of ageing, so this needs to be taken into account in respect of future costs. An example of an area of the body that first begins to show signs of ageing is the eyes, and upper eyelid surgery requires repetition after 5 to 7 years. You can, of course, do your best to slow down the ageing process to a certain level by living a healthy lifestyle.

The body naturally changes as we get older, and this is why when we consider surgical procedures we must not just think about how they will look and feel for us now, but also how they will when we get older, and if any further surgeries will be required to help keep the desired results active.
