What is Aging Gracefully? Kansas City Plastic Surgery. Hannah Vargas, Vargas Face and Skin Center.

Often when I am consulting on an aging face and I ask what bothers the patient the most, I hear “make me look like her” and they point to my 30 year old assistant, or a model in a magazine.  I make light of the comment and we laugh it off – but, what’s really going on here?

My aesthetic vision for a 65 year old woman is to make her look very good and very beautiful for her age.  Yes, there are facial principles and measurements that I have studied and learned, and think about when I look at my patients.  But, I don’t try to force all of those perfections on an individual patient, nor do I try to turn back the clock 30 years.  These are the traps that both patients and doctors fall into and where I believe patients start looking un-natural or “surgerized”.
