The Youth Corridor
Your Guide To Timeless Beauty
A Book by Gerald Imber, M.D.
Gerald Imber, M.D., a renowned plastic surgeon who serves on the staff at Weill-Cornell Medical Center (NYC), also heads a private clinic in Manhattan.
One of the main points in his very informative book, which he drives home in almost every chapter, is that when one contemplates self-improvement through anti-aging medicine, plastic surgery alone is not the only answer; it is only one of the numerous factors in staying, looking, and feeling young. This is a very unique and insightful revelation, especially coming from a traditionally-educated physician/plastic surgeon, yet a very honest one as well, which adds great credibility to his book.
Upon reading THE YOUTH CORRIDOR, there are many additional factors that the author brings into focus that most people, who look to plastic surgery just by itself to “cure all their ills“, must recognize as pertinent ones concerning their own physical and mental “processes” and must be understood. These other parts of the puzzle (of their lives), must either be changed or modified in conjunction with their plastic surgery in order for any individualized medical procedure to be 100% successful.
One of the main points emphasized in this book is that people must be cognizant of and willing to accept the fact that aging is an absolute part of nature. It will and does happen to everybody, and there is no way to escape it-(just like the proverbial “death and taxes“). Because of this fact, people should not wait until things start to “fall apart”, but should physically as well as mentally prepare themselves at an earlier age for this inevitability, and even do so well before any noticeable physical decline truly begins. Dr. Imber stresses that the many anti-aging promoters, such as moderate exercise, proper diet, supplementation, a moderation of sun, etc., are all important, (which we all know), but should not be followed to extremes that could hurt us, and should be done consistently through the years; once again, one should not wait until things get completely “out-of-hand”, which unfortunately, is what most aging people do, especially in our “rush-rush” environment that exists today!
Because Dr. Imber is a plastic surgeon, he deals professionally with the skin and the exterior of the body. Although the skin is our largest organ, all the interior organs and tissues, muscles, etc., must also be maintained as well, for plastic surgery on any level, whether it be major or minor, to be truly successful…many folks disregard this fact, and this is what Dr. Imber really strives to get through to his readers. In this reader’s opinion, he truly accomplishes this in THE YOUTH CORRIDOR. It is impossible to be completely healthy, especially under the specifications of true anti-aging medicine, if one only shines on the outside, yet is dark and bleak internally.
One important concept brought out by Dr. Imber is that “age and beauty are often carelessly confused“. Although “appearing youthful and beautiful should coexist“, it is possible to have one without the other. Even though we are all interested in retaining both youth as well as beauty, physical, external beauty is only in the eye of the beholder, where youth is a constant for everybody, because it pertains to all of the bodily mechanisms.
To go on in any further detail would be a book review. I thoroughly recommend getting and reading this book, as it is truly a compilation of many books into one. Readers will most definitely have all questions and concerns answered in a very precise and layman-friendly way, and anyone contemplating plastic surgery or not, will come away knowing the truths about plastic surgery, anti-aging, and how to retain youth in the right way.
