Comedian Didi Santana, 86, has been a topic on social media for undergoing plastic surgery at a clinic in the interior of Sao Paulo. In this way, the actor surprised Internet users, who asked themselves the question: Is there an age limit to carry out facial coordination?
“86 years with a face?? (Complete the sentence in the comments). we had the honor of receiving this little boy, Dede Santana, at our clinic! We began to contour his face with fillers for the jaw, Chinese mustache, chin, dark circles, cheekbones, lips and puppets, among other procedures such as eyebrow design, ”reads the clinic’s publication.
Is there an appropriate age for facial pairing?
According to surgeon and dentist Dr. Katja Blum, who specializes in cosmetic dentistry, there is no age limit for facial fillings. “Evaluation is individual to the needs of the patient. Furthermore, hyaluronic acid is a safe product when indicated and applied correctly,” she says.
Obviously, there are some precautions that a specialist should take regardless of the person’s age, such as checking if they have any disease that may pose a health risk (diabetes and uncompensated hypertension, for example).
In addition, it is essential that the specialist who will perform the procedure is trained to do so. This is because Dr. Katja Blum explains that if done too much or incorrectly, the filler can lead to tissue necrosis in areas with few blood vessels.
What are the precautions after the operation?
In addition to the specialist, what habits should the patient follow after alignment:
- Avoid sun exposure.
- Use a sunscreen
- Also, avoid wearing very heavy makeup for the first few days;
- Do not massage the face.
- Finally, do not engage in intense physical activity.
Thus, in the case of hyaluronic acid fillers, Katya states that it can last up to two years. “And this can be reversed when we apply the enzyme hyaluronidase to hydrolyze the acid molecules.”
