“Holistic plastic surgery is the idea that in plastic surgery, you look at the body as a whole picture—and you want to start with the basics. And the basics aren't Botox or facelift or breast implants. The basics are lifestyle, nutrition, exercise, and reducing the environmental toxins that you're exposed to,” says board-certified plastic surgeon Anthony Youn, M.D. “I really look at surgery as a valid option, but an option we have to consider as that last resort.” In this episode of Clean Beauty School, mindbodygreen beauty director & host Alexandra Engler and Youn discuss longevity, the problems with social media and traditional medicine, and preventive aging steps to take before considering going under the knife.
