Buzzfeed Goes Behind The Art of Aging

imagesDespite countless critics on the subject matter, plastic surgery is an art form. Top surgeons design, restore, sculpt, inject, fill, create and perfect beautiful masterpieces every single day. They transform the ordinary to the extraordinary, yet they don’t always get perceived in that light.

Aging is no different. There is a certain level of art in understanding how to age gracefully.

Some authorities say the key to aging graciously includes accepting the natural changes and progression while finding meaningful activities to sustain a happy and healthy lifestyle.

While other experts may agree on some level, plastic surgeons understand they are leading the forefront in the industry of non-invasive techniques and formulated natural solutions available on the market to assist in the process.

Much like the haves and the have nots, post 30 somethings are now struggling with the pressure of the idea behind the fountain of youth. Regardless, aging is an evolutionary certainty, so two different types of people tend to emerge: those who are aging and those who are aging gracefully.

(Commonly referred to as the lucky ones who simply appear to be improving with each passing year like a fine wine, while some are just learning by trial and error.) But it isn’t about aging better, it’s about aging smarter. Dr. Monica Tadros MD, F.A.C.S. of Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery specializes in anti-aging strategies, methods and procedural treatments. Dr. Tadros states, “Aging gracefully requires making choices that are right for you. We feel great when how we look on the outside reflects how we feel on the inside. It is a simple algorithm: Does how you look make you happy? If not, what would make you happy? It’s important to know that you have choices and to make the choices that are right for you.” Tadros continued, “Skin care and volume are paramount. There are countless non-surgical and invasive options available and that’s the best place to begin. A good relationship with the right doctor will help you navigate through an overwhelming number of possibilities and/or alternatives to make informed choices that are right for you.” The secret isn’t necessarily in what they’re doing. It’s in what they aren’t doing, or just by taking initiative. As life expectancy continues to increase, the burden to look and feel youthful grows rapid.

Examiner Celebrates Dr. Tadros’ Revolutionary Lips

Dr. Monica Tadros, Facial Plastic Surgeon & Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon is a distinguished Facial Plastic Surgeon & Reconstructive Surgeon and Educator with an exclusive approach to lip augmentation. She has offices located on Park Avenue in Manhattan and in Bergen County, New Jersey. Lip augmentation is one of the most highly publicized and popular trending treatments thanks to celebrities making headlines with a fuller pout. For instance, Kylie Jenner has had everyone talking with her constant social media posts and the controversial #kyliejennerchallenge!
There has been an extremely widespread initiative with young ladies who are swooning over her fuller lips. Although we understand their desires to keep up with the “it- girls” of Hollywood and social influence, it is important for patients to look and feel their best with a customized treatment and realistic expectations. Dr. Monica Tardos helps us to understand and breakdown her unique approach.
Dr. Tadros has pioneered a new technique in lip shaping, “Love Your Lips” that sculpts your natural pucker just right the way so you will LOVE them. Sometimes that means bigger, and sometimes it just means better! Her technique ranges from soft and lovely reshaping of your lips to a luscious, fuller lip with more definition and curves that balances the rest of your features. There are a wide variety of injectables on the market which are clinically proven to sustain safe, effective and long-lasting results. These non-invasive methods rely on substances, usually composed of hyaluronic-acid and dissolvable suture materials require no recovery or downtime in a hospital bed, just natural-looking supple lips.

What makes Dr. Tadros’ specialized “Love Your Lips” technique different from other doctors?

Most lip augmentation techniques involve injecting the lips in horizontal fashion, accentuating the rim of the lips evenly and pumping them up. The result is an obvious unnatural appearance of what may be referred to as “duck lips”, “sausage lips” or “rubber tires”. This technique inflates the lips unnaturally, and blunts the vermillion border (lip-liner line). Dr. Tadros performs her signature procedure customizing every result to perfection. Get ready to pucker up! Dr. Tadros “Love Your Lips” technique treats the entire lip complex exactly where definition and shaping can enhance the resting pout. This is individual to the patient but includes treating the philtrum, cupids bow and deep orbicularis muscle that encircles the mouth from the base of the nose to the top of the chin. She never blunts the vermillion border (lip-liner line) insisting it must be sharp to appear natural. Her strokes are artistic with tear-drop tapered application of product that supports the eversion of your natural red lip and only increases size by altering muscle height and position-rather than just inflating the lip. The result only the most natural lip enhancement based on your anatomy.

When to Consider Lip Enhancement

  • Your lips have always been thin and disappear when you smile
  • As you age, your lips have become thinner and less full
  • You feel self-conscious about how your lips look
  • Having fuller lips will help balance out your face
Although more permanent options exist, patients are advised to undergo a temporary non-surgical filler procedure to evaluate the dramatic effects of lip shaping. Dr. Tadros never recommends permanent filler injections because the lips are just too unpredictable and permanent fillers will not age well with the patient. Dr. Tadros includes surgical lip lifting as a permanent solution in select patients with upper lip elongation. In this procedure, the position of the muscle is lifted and excess skin removed from within the nostril crease to create an ideal cupids bow. This is the most effective and natural way to enhance a very flat upper lip. Having full, plump lips is often considered a sign of good health, beauty and youth. Whether you were born with thin lips or your lips are thinning due to the natural aging process, there are many ways to enhance them. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful lip enhancement and are pleased with the results. For Full Feature on Examiner click here...
