September is Healthy Aging Month, and there’s no better time to focus on your overall health and well-being. While plastic surgery is often associated with vanity, it can be an important tool for maintaining your health as you age. This blog post will explore why healthy aging matters to plastic surgery and how the two are connected.
What Is Healthy Aging Month?
Healthy Aging Month is an annual observance that promotes the benefits of healthy aging and encourages older adults to take steps to improve their health. The campaign highlights the importance of staying active and engaged as we age and provides tips on making healthy choices throughout our lives.
This year’s Healthy Aging Month is critical as we face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Senior citizens are among the most vulnerable to the virus, and we must do everything we can to protect them. During Healthy Aging Month, let’s pledge to do our part to help our elders stay healthy and engaged in their communities.
Why Does Healthy Aging Month Matter to Plastic Surgery?
For plastic surgeons, Healthy Aging Month is an important time to educate our patients and the public about the wide range of procedures we offer to help patients look and feel their best as they age. From minimally invasive treatments to more complex surgeries, we have a lot to offer our patients interested in improving their appearance and health as they age.
So if you’re considering plastic surgery, talk to your surgeon about what options are available to you. And if you’re not considering plastic surgery, don’t write it off entirely – you may be surprised by what we can do to help you look and feel your best as you age. Plastic surgery can help:
- Patients look and feel younger.
- Improve a patient’s self-esteem and sense of well-being.
- Patients stay active and independent as they age.
- Reduce the risk of injuries and falls in older adults.
- Prolong a patient’s life expectancy.
