Everyone’s body goes through a lot of changes as they age. People age differently so your experience with your body might be different than others. Genetics plays a big role in how people age and change as they get older, but your lifestyle and health choices can also have a big impact on the process. Here are some of the most common changes your body will undergo as you get older.
Development of Wrinkles And Lines On The Face
As you get older, you probably will notice the existence of more wrinkles, skin folds, and lines, especially on the face. The normal aging process in conjunction with your lifestyle and sun exposure leads to rougher and looser skin due to the loss of elastin. This leads to the development of wrinkles and more fragile skin. Many people choose to undergo a facelift to restore a more fresh and youthful appearance to the face and neck.
As you get older, the connective tissues in your breast start to break down, which can cause them to sag. Your mammary glands also start to reduce in size since your body is producing less estrogen. This gives your breasts a softer and less full look as they start to shift in size and composition. Some who have experienced changing breasts due to childbirth, weight loss, or the aging process opt for a breast augmentation to enhance both size and shape. Effective breast surgery can give you a more feminine and full appearance and help you meet a breast size goal.
Eyes that are going through the aging process often look tired. As collagen and elastin decline in your body, the sensitive and delicate skin around the eyes often starts to develop its own fine wrinkles and can start to sag. You might also see permanent bags under the lower eyelids or skin folds towards the top. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be a tool to treat eye bags and excess skin and give your eyelids a rejuvenated look.
Loss Of Lip Volume
As the body ages, the lips start to lose their sense of tone and volume. This can make them appear less plump and start to lose definition as the years go on. If you are concerned about big changes to your lips, fillers made out of hyaluronic acid can be used to breathe new life into your lips and restore a more youthful appearance without making them seem too big or ‘full.
Angular And A Slimming Face
When you are young, your face is often full and perky because the fat beneath your cheeks is robust. As you get older, this fat starts to decrease, which can lead to a lot of volume loss in the face. This gives your face a more gaunt and angular appearance. This makes you look older and more tired. Many women choose to invest in collagen or hyaluronic acid products to stimulate production. Others might opt for facial implants or a traditional facelift to restore more tissue to the cheek area.
As your body gets older, your eyebrows will start to droop and sag. This makes you look older since eyebrows with a nice arch are often the most aesthetically pleasing. Eyebrow drooping can often be mitigated or even stopped with preventative measures such as BOTOX®. If treatment is not working, or if you just have a naturally low brow line, a brow lift is often the procedure of choice to bring back a more youthful look for the face.
