Signs of aging you might not be expecting
Crows feet, laugh lines, forehead wrinkles - these are all common signs of aging that many people expect to develop once they reach their 40s or 50s. But these facial lines aren't the only blemishes that will crop up as you age. There are other parts of your body that will prove to be evidence of how long you've been around. To avoid being blindsided by these issues, here are a few unexpected signs of aging and how you may be able to treat them with plastic surgery.
Sleight of hand
Believe it or not, but your hands could very possibly show signs of aging before your face does. They are likely your most-used appendages, so it's no surprise that they will develop wear and tear earlier on than the rest of your body. Sun spots and wrinkles are typically the biggest age-related hand complaints, but fortunately there's a plastic surgery procedure to treat this problem. Photorejuvenation, for instance, can treat sun spots on the hand.
For women, the chest is one of the early indicators of age. Even if you've been wearing supportive bras since puberty, gravity will eventually take its toll. Sagging breasts can deal a big blow to your self-esteem, but there is a procedure that can address this issue. Some people may think that breast implants are the only chest-related plastic surgery procedure, but a breast lift - which doesn't involve implants - can actually adjust the way the bosom hangs, resulting in a perkier, more youthful appearance.
The dreaded bingo wings
The next time you're standing in front of a mirror, take a moment to lift your arms up and wiggle them. Do you see excess skin flapping around under your bicep area? These are called bingo wings, and for many people, they are a point of embarrassment. A procedure known as brachioplasty, or an arm lift, uses liposuction to tighten the skin in this area, slimming down the arms and eliminating that flapping "wing."
