Top Surgery After 50 Years of Age?
Do you wonder if it is possible to have TOP surgery after the age of 50? Many people question if they have waited too long, or how difficult it may be to heal after major surgery or worry about the elasticity of their skin.
Some people wonder if TOP surgery makes them transgender, and if so what are the ramifications? Could you lose your job and if so how would you get another one at this age? These are some of the questions many people face when trying to decide if surgery is right for them.
Are You Healthy?
Dr. Miguel Delgado states that age is not the determining factor, but overall health is most important. Your surgeon will want to know if you have any issues with your heart, blood pressure, kidneys or liver. Are you a smoker? Do you have diabetes? Do you have any alcohol or drug addictions? These are things you should be prepared to discuss with your doctor. In addition, do you have a good support system? Will you be able to take time off work?
Be sure to choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is experienced with TOP surgery. Your surgeon will be able to tell you how the surgery will be done and to address such issues of skin elasticity and if you have redundant skin. A skilled surgeon will be able to work with you on your concerns and give you your options.
Older May Be Better!
Many people have elective surgery when they are older and find it may be easier financially, they may have accumulated time off work, and they may have good medical insurance that may cover some of the costs.
People in their 50’s, 60’s, and even in their 70’s have successfully had TOP surgery and are glad they did, and so can you!
