Do you think 49 is too old for plastic surgery?



Recommended Posts

Agree - more than half your adult life is ahead of you. And even if it was less why not be comfortable? in my mid 40’s which I am claiming until 49 incidentally. PS was for me not about being a sex symbol but literally being comfortable in my own skin. A truckload of surgery is behind me and a thigh lift to go - I would not recommend doing any of it if it is not important to you because Recovery is a real pain. As for those people well they don’t live in your skin... my spouse was aware but that was it don’t need the judgment save myself the stress!

Hi everyone, I'm still preop and aged 48, I'm being optimistic that I will lose the weight and am interested in having an arm lift, breast lift, and anything else I need lifted, lol. I've seen people say why bother over age 40 you are too old no need at that ;point in your life. Yes, I will be 49 and pushing 50 and I'm not trying to be a sex symbol but I it's something I want. Am I being vain? I know my younger years are behind me.

if you want it, do it ...

i’m mid 40s and still deciding on surgery but one thing i’ve been looking at is the plastic surgery available later because i know for health reasons both physical and emotionally it’s going to be a strong likelihood. This is your life .... not anyone’s who says silly comments about being over 40 😁 wishing you well with this

Oh hell no! I'm 57 and just had a Tummy Tuck on December 11, 2019. I've had 4 c-sections, one incisional hernia after my third c-section, and lost 80 pounds. My stomach was a mess and a huge, hanging blob. I am absolutely loving my flat stomach. I've got a lot of living yet to do and when my children get married, I'm not going to have to shop for some frumpy mother of the bride dress to hide my hideous gut. Go for it!

I am pre-op and my gastric bypass is scheduled for January 22. I am 64 year old and still plan on having plastics after I loose my weight. Your only as old as you feel.

If you are healthy enough to have plastic surgery you are never too old for it!

When my sister was having a Tummy Tuck there was a lady in her ward who was in her early 70s having breast implants. She told my sister she had always wanted them (and the face lift she had done some months before) and could finally afford them, she was healthy and active so she decided she was going for it.

There is a woman on Insta called fabandfitby50reborn051118 or similar- anyway she lost a ton of weight and is open about her surgeries and she is living her best life to look amazing but 50- she’s 49- and she looks AMAZING. Go for it. 40 isn’t old. 50 isn’t old. Look at Christi Brinkley or Halle berry. They have never looked better. You could hopefully be on earth for another 50 years!!! Might as well be snatched right?

Had my WLS at 46, then PS at 47.

The former made me feel younger, the latter is making me look it, LOL

I am 53 and having my surgery on the 14th. I am not a vain person but if I am doing all of the work to get back in shape I want to look my best. I have already told my husband that I will be getting everything put back where it belongs after the weight is gone. So go for it!!

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

Administrators can also be capable of enjoy this factor involving motionless value analyzers of which help area this type of errors. It's not actually concerning advertising and marketing PVS-Studio (well, in some degree, it will be :).
