Anti Aging Fears: Is Going Under The Knife To Look Younger Worth Risking Your Life? - Articles Surfing
Society has told us in many different ways over the years that aging is something bad, to the point where we should be ashamed it is happening to us.
If this is not the case, then why has plastic surgery become a multi-billion dollar industry? Why do men leave their wives for younger women more frequently than twenty years ago? Why are women becoming more insecure and working out at the gym when they should be enjoying their free time after work?
As plastic surgery increases, so do the very unfortunate deaths that go along with these risks. We have all seen the television shows entitled, Plastic Surgery Gone Wrong.
Do we feel sorry for these people who chose this route to attain the fountain of youth? Or do we envy their bravery for at least trying? How about the debt incurred taking out loans, cashing in their 401k, or using their pension and savings account just to strip their face of 10 years worth of aging and wrinkles? Will it work? Is it worth it?
Regardless, society as a whole does not view aging as a grateful gift of gratitude for our years of hard work and relaxation by earning our valued retirement. It is perceived that we have become weak, infertile, outdated, and unable to contribute in society today. A burden, if you will, is cast upon baby boomers and beyond.
Did you hear the story about the grandmother who spent thousands of dollars to have a facelift because her grandchild screamed in horror each time she picked him up? She said he was afraid of her face, because she looked so old and had so many deep wrinkles. This grandmother was compelled to take action by getting plastic surgery so her grandchild would play with her. Can you feel her pain? Should she have had the surgery so her grandchild would not cry every time she picked him up? When did wrinkles become such a horrific disfigurement?
Never mind the younger generation's point of view that people over 40 are not technologically intelligent or willing to conform to our ever-increasing gadget craze; we do not even get a second look when showing up for a job interview if the job requires a technical background. The supervisor assumes we either do not have the skills needed, or we will not fit in with the younger employees as a cohesive team.
However, there are alternatives that do not force us to go under the knife and risk our lives to stay youthful in appearance. Before spending your hard-earned money on expensive over-the-counter and prescription anti aging creams, shop around and read the many reviews and real-life testimonials from men and women who have nothing to lose by telling you the truth regarding whether or not the product actually worked for them.
Anti aging skin care is something we should all adhere to, for our own sake. Eat healthfully, and review the many great products which include anti aging serum and anti aging creams. As society ages, we do have choices that won't break our bank account.
