The Hollywood Reporter / Dr. Rady Rahban Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeons React to Breast Implant Recall: “Don’t Panic” July 30, 2019

Slide 2 of 51: “One surprising thing that happens after age 50 is that people tend to shrink; both men and women!” says Dr. Monique May, a physician. “As we age, we lose height because the discs between the vertebrae lose their water content and elasticity. In English, that means that the cushions between the bones in the spine get less spongy, lose their shape and become flattened. That causes the spine to shrink and people lose inches in height.”“You can also lose height if the spine starts to curve or if you have a compression fracture (where the bone breaks and collapses on itself) from osteoporosis (age-related bone loss),” she says.The Remedy Rx: “The difference can be several inches from when you were younger,” she says, “so it important that you get your height measured along with your weight when you get your annual physical at your doctor’s office.”
