The Age Factor in Cosmetic Surgery

Posted .

Recent data analyzed from over 120,000 patients during a 5 year period reveals that age (ie: people over 65 years old) was not an independent risk factor for aesthetic procedures. Age alone was not significant in how well people recovered from surgery or their rate of complications. All other risk factors removed shows that rate of complications in the older population is the same as in the younger groups: about 2%.

Age is not as big a factor for surgery as we once thought. What is important is a healthy person, both in body and mind.
