CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- Dr. Jennifer Hein of Women's Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery is known as a medical professional who encourages her patients to consider their options carefully before having surgery, as she understands that aesthetic procedures can have a significant impact on the lives of women. In response to a recent article by Ann Brenoff, published by The Huffington Post, Dr. Hein has released a statement urging women to consider quality of life over societal expectations when going under the knife.

In the article, Brenoff explains that she is resisting aging by fighting not the process of getting older, but the attitude that aging is something that cannot be done in a healthy manner. Instead, she states, "Trying to slow down the process in which your limitations eventually overtake you is very different than trying to recapture your youth." Her philosophy is supported by Dr. Hein, who encourages her patients to focus on quality of life rather than image when considering cosmetic and laser surgery.

"What an amazing attitude Ann has when it comes to aging well," comments Dr. Jennifer Hein. "The key words I tell my patients are 'quality of life.' I agree with Ann that we are all getting older and that this aging process is a natural part of life. I also, however, feel that the quality of those years is as important or sometimes more important than the number of years. Proper diet and exercise are essential to enhancing the quality of life. If you look in the mirror and see a vibrant and healthy woman peering back at you, it can have a positive impact on how you may spend your day and what you feel you can accomplish. This has nothing to do with the number of wrinkles on your face, but more to do with how you feel. When a patient comes in looking for a facelift or other aesthetic procedure I always like to try to make sure that they are doing so for the right reasons. If they are looking for a procedure because they feel society wants them to look a certain way or someone is pressuring them to have it done I advise them heavily against it. If it is, however, because they want to do it for themselves to feel younger when they look in the mirror, then that's a great reason and they will have a much more positive outcome -- both mentally and physically. Again, it's all about quality of life and people who choose to live a healthy lifestyle can enjoy a great quality of life with or without wrinkles."
