Cosmetic Surgery Torrance: Mitigating Mistakes of Youth

Posted September 30, 2013 in Cosmetic Surgery, Goldberg Plastic Surgery

If you’re starting to see signs of premature aging, the consequences of taking less than optimal care of yourself in your youth, there is help available to mitigate many of those unwelcome changes. While our grandparents and parents had little choice but to live with such changes, with today’s advanced options in cosmetic surgery, Torrance plastic surgeons can minimize or even erase many of them, helping you look as young and vibrant as you feel.

Most people in their teens and 20s don’t spend much time worrying about how things they do and things they don’t might affect them as they reach their 30s and 40s. After all, midlife seems so far in the distance. Additionally, even he most fastidious guardians of health and well-being among those now reaching the age of 40 or beyond did not have the benefit of today’s knowledge on the mechanics of the aging process to aid in prevention.

Who knew twenty years ago that sunshine could wreak havoc on deep skin structure, breaking down collagen and elastin, altering skin cell DNA, stripping the skin of antioxidant protection and inhibiting natural skin cell renewal? Much of the research available today on the connections between poor dietary habits or chronic stress and aging wasn’t available then, nor were the effects of weight fluctuations on skin health, appearance and elasticity as commonly known as they are today.

While all that research into the aging process might not have been available in time to prevent premature aging, it can be of benefit to you in mitigating the damage. Skin sagging, for instance, caused by sun damage to deep skin layers, can be addressed in a number of ways by cosmetic surgery. Torrance surgeons can use dermal fillers to restore lost facial volume, plumping and smoothing the skin. Brow lifts and/or eyelid surgery can be used to correct sagging in the eye area that lends an aged or tired appearance. Performed by a talented surgeon, facelift or mini facelift procedures can smooth, tighten and contour the skin, providing dramatic, natural looking anti-aging results.

Of course, premature aging often shows in the body too, and there are many options available for correcting these issues. With cosmetic surgery, Torrance plastic surgeons can correct flabby, sagging upper arms, or lift and tighten sagging skin in the abdominal area, breasts, back, thighs or buttocks.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the options available to reduce the signs of premature aging. From non-surgical procedures to cosmetic surgery, Torrance residents will find a wide range of effective anti-aging treatments offered at Goldberg Plastic Surgery. If you are unhappy with the toll time has taken on your face and body, don’t settle, schedule a consultation today.
