Aging is a thing we try to avoid in this day and age and the process is almost seen as a crime against our person. Unwillingness to age is nothing new of course, even back in 1500BC it is thought that those wanting to stay youthful would ingest the testicles of tigers, bizarre but no worse than some of the concoctions we take now in an effort to slow down the hands of time.
Many are now turning to surgery, hormone injections and detailed and exacting dietary and fitness regimes in order to stay looking youthful. Injections can include the human growth hormone; the production of which decreases as we get older and for men possibly injections of testosterone which again lessens in production as we age.
It seems people will turn to many solutions to avoid being labelled as old or past it and this becomes more of an urgency the older we get and as society becomes ever more centred on this area.
From research that was carried out to understand what helps people live to 100 years of age it seems the key is a healthy diet and plenty of exercise both physically and interestingly mentally. This would also suggest that some of the treatments we are undergoing may be doing little to help our quest. Some medication and hormone injections can of course have adverse effects and they can never be a substitute for healthy diet and lifestyle.
Some of the key cosmetic surgery procedures being used to reverse the signs of aging are; facelift surgery, lower eye bag removal and breast augmentation. for many the quest to remain youthful doesn’t start until we begin to see the signs of aging so some reversal procedures may be necessary. It is important to remember that you should compliment any surgical procedure with a healthy lifestyle to keep the results looking good for the long term.
