Do you do anti-aging medicine? I do not see it on your web site. If not, what is your opinion of it?
I am not a fan or follower of the anti-aging medicine fad in so much that it promotes what I believe to be a false concept. An older person cannot be made into a younger version of herself by boosting certain hormones. There is really no good evidence that it works. Patients don’t live any longer. It might also be found to be harmful in the long run.
Plastic surgeons will differ in their opinions as to what works with low risk to improve things. To me it seems more logical to minimize well-known “aging” influences such as sunlight and cigarette smoking. Sunscreens, good skin care and cessation of smoking will likely do more to preserve a patient and that patient’s appearance than the syringes full of hormones and stuff with which an anti-aging doctor will stick you. The addition of cosmetic surgery and/or minor procedures can help as well when used properly.
I am curious as to how these “anti-aging hormone shooting clients” will fare over time.
