Looking Younger, Feeling Better


“I was a sun worshipper when I was younger and I noticed I was starting to age rapidly,” says 55-year-old Veronica T. Sanchez, who came to UCLA Health for plastic surgery after attending an informational speaking event. “I didn’t know how much you could do with plastic surgery. I was spending about $3,000 per year on Botox and fillers, and if you do the math, with the surgery lasting 10 years, it’s about the same. At the end of the event, I said, ‘You know, I think it's time.’ It’s been both an educational and also an emotional journey because you're rearranging your face, but I'm really glad I did it. I get compliments left and right. The doctors said everything would last until I was 70 years old! I'm a big fan of UCLA and all the services that it provides.”
