Overview

For the last twenty years, celebrities, social and business leaders, public figures and fortunate individuals from around the world have sought the services of Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Gerald Imber. Through his years of studying the skin's aging process and working with thousands of patients of every age, Dr. Imber has become convinced that it is possible to maintain youthful good looks throughout life often without the help of surgery.

In The Youth Corridor, the celebrated surgeon offers the first organized system to help readers live agelessly without the aid of invasive procedures.The revolutionary program presented in The Youth Corridor is structured around what Dr. Imber calls the "Youth Corridor"—the twenty-five year period in which physical changes can best be managed and controlled. According to Imber, it is between the ages of 30 and 55 that much can be done to keep one virtually unchanged. The Youth Corridor presents specific routines designed for each age group which will allow readers to tap into the extraordinary potential of this 25 year period. The youngest reader will learn the latest and most effective routines to prevent aging, while more mature readers will learn how to undo the damage already done and adopt new strategies to control and reverse the signs of aging. Along the way, Dr. Imber, describes the biology behind the aging process, in easy-to-understand terms so readers feel informed and ready to act.

Read an Excerpt

"I was always happy with myself, I looked great. I never thought about changing anything. Sure, there were some signs of aging, but it wasn't terrible. Then, one morning I looked in the mirror, and saw my mother. That was it. I love my mother, but I don't want to look like her. She's a much older woman...you know, a different generation, with different priorities.... "

There you have it. Given some individual variation in disclaimers, you have the thrust of a story I've heard, on a daily basis, for more than twenty years. "When did all this happen? What do I do now?"

That question, and the frustration that accompanies it, provide much of the impetus for this book. For anyone who reads fashion magazines, or discusses the subject with friends, the bottom line is simple: Once the damage has been done, nothing short of surgery can restore what has been lost. And even then, the ravages of time cannot be fully undone. Worst of all, so many good years have been spent helplessly watching the changes add up, instead of fighting back. It's frustrating, it's annoying, and yet we simply write it off as the legacy of genetics and the effect of time. There seems nothing worth doing but grind our teeth and wait for things to get worse. But is that really true?

It seemed to me that there had to be a better strategy than watching the horse leave the barn before closing the door. But what to do. I was fully aware of the problem; and the solutions, such as they were, were purely surgical, and aimed at correcting accumulated damage. A case of too much, too late. Or perhaps of appropriate therapy for the stage of aging confronted. Ideally, we would like to alter the speed at which thesechanges occur, if not prevent them completely. The concept of controlling the signs of aging, if not the process itself, became an issue to which I have devoted a great deal of my professional interest and energies. Some years ago, when I first began to question the conventional approach, I was particularly struck by the absence of treatment options for early changes in younger people, and by the attitude among colleagues that these early changes weren't worth dealing with. It made no sense. If we were going to influence the eventual outcome, the earlier we become involved the better.
