At 72, what types of procedures would be safe?
First, I think it would be reasonable to collect information and decide on a ‘wish list’ but then run that list by your cardiologist. He/she can help you figure out what’s safe for you.
In general though, things like fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra) are safe in heart patients, as is Botox. Lasers are as well as long as normal safety precautions are observed. Always go to a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon and find someone experienced and reputable who has been in your community a long time. How to find someone good.
Some plastic surgeons now are doing minimally invasive work under the chin and around the upper neck which doesn’t require as much anesthesia time. You might inquire in your community about this. Hope this helps! Dr. I
