4 Minute Read:
Becoming a grandmother can be one of the most rewarding events in your life, from holding your grandbaby in your arms for the first time and the memories that return from when your children were newly born to deciding on what you want to be called, only to have the newest love(s) of your life choose their own name for you.
Whether you are Grandma, Grannie, Nana, Noni, Abuelita, Oma, or Gaga, your new title can be both fulfilling and overwhelming at the same time.
Being Young at Heart Deserves a Youthful Aesthetic
Chances are your grandmother and great-grandmother appeared older when they were your age. Sunscreens and advancements in skin care, as well as better health care, are allowing us to look younger, longer.
However, signs of aging like lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, loosening skin, fat deposits, and sagging breasts are still unavoidable. Luckily, plastic surgery can help.
Given the long-lasting results that many cosmetic surgery procedures provide, a woman in her 50s or 60s can maintain her vibrant face and body well into her 70s or even 80s.
Plastic Surgery Options for an Energetic Grandma
You’re still going strong, and your physical appearance can let others know how timeless you are. The following plastic surgery options are often the most beneficial for mature women:
For the Face
Facelift with neck lift – If you choose to undergo facelift surgery, be sure your surgeon includes the neck, as this area typically ages as fast or faster than the face. Choosing a facelift with a neck lift can dramatically improve your appearance and make you look years or even decades younger.
Eyelid surgery – The eyes are another area of the face that can age faster than the rest of your face. This procedure can transform droopy, tired-looking eyes into eyes that appear bright, alert, and youthful.
Brow lift – A furrowed brow can send the wrong message by making you look perpetually angry or worried. This simple procedure lifts the brows and tightens the forehead to provide a more inviting appearance.
For the Body
Arm lift – The upper arms tend to sag over time and can significantly impact the way you look in short-sleeved or sleeveless apparel. An arm lift recontours the upper arms so you can feel more comfortable in your favorite clothes.
Liposuction – Most of us struggle with stubborn areas of fat that are diet and exercise-resistant, which is especially true for mature women. Liposuction can be used almost anywhere on the body (and chin) for a contoured and smoother figure.
Breast lift – Sagging breasts are virtually unavoidable with age, and a breast lift can reshape and reposition them for a younger-looking body.
Mommy Makeover – This combination of procedures is not just for new mommies and can be life-changing for women of any age. A Mommy Makeover typically combines a breast lift or breast augmentation with liposuction (or a tummy tuck if you have loose abdominal skin).
Combining Cosmetic Surgeries for a Complete Makeover
You can combine any cosmetic facial or body surgery with another in that category. For instance, you may add eyelid or brow lift surgery to a facelift procedure, or you can combine liposuction with an arm lift.
Cosmetic surgeries that shouldn’t be combined involve those in different categories, like a facelift with breast enhancement surgery.
If you want both types of procedures, you’ll want to undergo them separately with plenty of time to recover in between.
It’s Your Turn
If you are a grandmother, chances are you have lived through a wide variety of experiences and made many sacrifices for your family.
There are still plenty of new sights to see and a lot of living left to do, and if you are a healthy non-smoker who looks older than you feel, you may be a perfect candidate for a Grandmother Makeover.
