An acting awardIn the critical world of Hollywood and leading lady movie roles Meryl Streep dominates the category by carrying the title of working actress. According to a recent Orange County register blog post, she was not so sure that she would be working after 40 years of age. According to the article, Streep shared with the magazine “The good thing about getting older is that when they do cast you it’s often something interesting – you’re no longer asked to be the beautiful leading lady,” she’s been quoted as saying. She’s said she’s relished tackling the roles that give actors the chance to explore idiocynracies. Of course it would not be Southern California if we did not speculate that she must have had some surgery along the way. For the record, Meryl Streep denies having plastic surgery. Whether she has had plastic surgery or not, she is a perfect example of aging gracefully. Dr. O’Toole explains to patients as they go through the aging process, that procedures should be staged along the way. By doing a little bit each time throughout the aging process patients are not subjected to a dramatic change in their looks. For example, patients in their mid 30s to early 40s should have injectables including BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, and consider a modified facelift for a subtle improvement to mild sagging of the skin. At the first signs of drooping eyelids patients should consider a blepharoplasty for both the upper lids as well as the bags beneath the eyes. If the brow shows mild to moderate sagging a brow lift can be combined with the blepharoplasty. Later on, in the mid-50s patients can consider a secondary facelift to address loose skin on the neck that may now be present. Doing procedures in stages along  the way proves to appear much more natural, and patients are generally happier with their appearance long-term. The best compliment a person can have, especially a celebrity, is when the public is confused as to whether or not their ageless beauty is as a result of plastic surgery.
