I really do believe that this is possible, curiosity did an episode about this. Apparently the only reason we age is because our cells are wearing out, so just renew the cells somehow and you could probably live longer. And we get saggy skin because of weakening elasticity in our skin, so just strengthen that and you have a younger looking person. I do also think the human body is similar to a machine, we get old and worn out not really because we have lived many years but because we use our bodies 24/7 we never really shut down so we are feeling the effects of overuse rather than time because our bodies dont understand that we are a year older. If you have a machine and completely shut it down every once in a while it can last much longer than a machine that never stops running.

If you want to read something interesting on the subject of reversing age, Google "Telomerase".
I'll start you off:
