Why should you read this book?
This is a scientific health book for the non-scientist, non-physician.  This is not a diet book, but is a comprehensive book on why we grow old from our cells to our bodies as a whole, and how we can thwart and even reverse the aging process. It is a guide to nutrition, supplements, hormones, skin care, exercise and plastic surgery toward feeling and looking your best. Discussed are many important aging processes that are related to how we live and our habits that most people have never read about or heard of.

Subjects discussed in this book:

  • Causes of aging on a molecular level
  • How to turn back the clock
  • Effects of poor nutrition and bad habits on health and appearance
  • Anti-aging supplements and foods
  • How to grocery shop for health

What are people saying?

I picked up your book, Why Grow Old,” over the weekend and could not put it down as I am totally of the belief that we can age without growing old. I have been practicing ant-aging for many years. I find it fascinating to learn about and read all that I can to stay up on the latest findings. I found your book very enlightening and comprehensive. It covers all areas and in great detail. This an invaluable tool for anyone on the path to slowing down the aging process and getting and staying healthy. I found it easy to read and understandable, I finished it today. Thank you so much for taking the time and energy you invested in this magnificent book.

Educational, informative and as Dr. Finger says, “Good health is beautiful.” A must read for everyone concerned with their health and well being.

I found Dr. Finger’s book interesting and understandable from a lay persons view. With his book as my guide, I have developed a health improvement plan I am confident will help me maintain a high quality of life for many years to come.

It is so informative and interesting. I especially enjoyed reading about how to eat right and to execise and how to protect yourself from sun damage and how to take care of your skin. It is always important to get a reminder of how to do things right. We may know how, but we become lazy or forget. There is so much information in the book that you can’t remember it all, but it is a great book to keep coming back to for looking things up. I know I will.

Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

 The eyelids are usually the first thing that gives a person’s age away.  It may involve either the upper eyelids sagging or the lower lids, which is usually manifested by “bags.”

 Typically the upper eyelids acquire more skin which ultimately hangs down to and sometimes over the edge of the lid and even lashes.  Sometimes people inherit excess skin in the upper lids, and this is typical of Asian people or those with Asian ancestry.  This problem can be corrected with an upper eyelid lift called an upper lid blepharoplasty.  This surgery can be done under either local or general anesthesia.  My preference is mild sedation and local anesthesia.  The procedure takes an experience surgeon 30 minutes to an hour, according to the amount of skin and whether fat must be removed as well.  The results are usually spectacular, if done correctly, and the scars are imperceptible in most cases.

 The lower eyelids are often more complex.  Some skin may have to be removed as well as the fatty “bags.”  If the only problem is the loose skin, and it’s not too excessive, a laser may correct the problem satisfactorily by tightening the skin.  If removing excessive fat is the only goal, this can be done through an incision in the inside of the lower eyelids called the transconjunctival blepharoplasty, and there is no scar.  If necessary, this may be combined with the laser when the skin is minimally excessive.  If a skin incision is needed, there is a faint scar in the skin of the lower lid just under the lashes.  If both an upper and lower lid blepharoplasty is required, they are done at the same time.

 One can expect some black eyes post-operatively and swelling for a few weeks.  It’s a small price to pay for beautiful eyes for decades to come.  Often the eyes look better than they have ever looked before, but proper technique is necessary, and I recommend a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
