One of the biggest problems in medicine is that everyone is looking for the answer. The one answer to the biggest question of all – how do I stop aging?! Sorry all – the solution to this patently does not exist! And I for one am not sure that it’s something we all want – is it?
Perhaps we’d be better aiming for ‘ageing gracefully’ – looking fabulous and feeling great, whatever your age. You can’t not age – it’s how you do it that makes the difference!
However, the good news is that there are many things which can help reduce and repair the signs of age. Different issues will, obviously require different treatments and the choices you make will be influenced by your biggest concerns and by your budget.
I call my own approach ‘Cocktail Medicine’ – a little bit of this and a little bit of that, all coming together to result in something delicious. The biggest advantage of ‘Cocktail Medicine’ is it requires you not to rush. We need to see how you respond to treatment ‘A’ before we decide on treatment ‘B’ or ‘C’. This can in the long run actually keep the costs down a little as we can tailor the rest of the plan depending on the results so far.
So if you come to see me in my clinic and I lay out a large selection of possible treatments don’t be daunted by the choice; be empowered by it. Think of it as a smorgasbord of possibilities, a buffet of potential. So whether it is Thermage radio-frequency skin tightening or Fraxel skin resurfacing,VASER Lipo fat reduction or Macrolane breast enhancing injections, you get to choose which is your most important problem, which thing you would like to deal with first.
Most patients start out small and gentle with a little Botox or some dermal filler, moving on to the more significant and potentially more expensive options only after they are happy with the results and comfortable that they have chosen the right clinic. Choosing the right clinic is of course imperative – you need to be 100 per cent sure that you are putting yourself in the hands of someone who is not only skilled, but ethical and has your best interests at heart, not his bank balance.
Some of my patients have been coming to me for over eleven years. They keep coming back for only two reasons. They know the results I can give them and they trust me to only suggest something which will truly make a difference to how they look or how they feel about themselves.
