Happy 80th Birthday Joan Rivers

June 24th, 2013

Happy 80th Birthday to #Joan Rivers, a true trailblazer for publicly embracing cosmetic surgery.   Joan’s career has spanned decades and is perhaps best known for her sharp wit and snarky comments on the Red Carpet, covering star-studded arrivals to events like the Emmy’s and the Academy Awards. The comedian and host of E!’s Fashion Police candidly rebuffs the criticism of her many procedures, “I wish I had a twin, so I could know what I’d look like without plastic surgery!”

While Miss Rivers was a pioneer for admitting to having had cosmetic surgery and poking fun of herself in doing so, plastic surgery is more common now among older women than ever before.  This may be attributed to factors such as availability of accredited outpatient facilities nationwide, developments in anesthesia, and greater public acceptance of considering elective cosmetic surgery. Since better knowledge of nutrition  and fitness  has helped to increase our longevity, I find that my patients are saying, “why not stay looking your best at any age?”
