Portland, ME, October 21, 2015: Owner and Founder of The Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Verne Weisberg posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Will You Age Gracefully or Youthfully?” No doubt about it, aging is not what it used to be with cosmetic procedures and a host of anti-aging foods, skin care and cosmetics.
As Dr. Weisberg explores his most recent topic, he writes, “According to an article on the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, “Aging gracefully is a term often used to describe women who choose to grow older without undergoing any aesthetic procedures to help them maintain their looks.” He continues adding, “They also acknowledge that the term may be a polite euphemism used to describe those who are “looking old, but embracing it” or “showing signs of aging, but still powering forward with life.” (http://www.surgery.org/consumers/plastic-surgery-news-briefs/aging-gracefully-mean-1051522)
In Weisberg’s opinion, “While the term is a lovely one, it could use a little surgery! Perhaps the widespread acceptance of plastic surgery today can give new meaning to or eliminate it entirely.”
Weisberg states, “You may or may not ever schedule a visit to a board certified plastic surgeon. You may opt to wear your wrinkles and your age with pride and confidence. If that is the case, the term “aging gracefully” will still apply. However, for those who take steps to align their outer appearance with the way they feel inside through plastic surgery, they will be the ones who inspire an exciting new term to describe them.”

About Dr. Weisberg
Dr. Verne Weisberg is board certified with two surgical specialties. His first board certification is in otolaryngology (ENT), after three years of training at the prestigious Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.

As a double-boarded surgeon, he is uniquely trained in all aspects of facial plastic surgery with a special interest in rhinoplasty, both primary and revisional, as well as face-lifting.
