We always knew that cosmetic surgery could make folks look younger, but just how many years younger? We couldn't say for sure–until now. TIME Magazine is reporting on a recent study just published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery. “…Surgeons asked medical students to estimate the ages of patients in before-and-after pictures,” TIME reports “and the results suggest that facial surgery reduces a person's outward age by about six to eight years, depending on the extent of the procedure.”
The study evaluated patients who had undergone facial plastic surgeries like facelifts and eyelid surgery. “The more work a person had done, the younger they tended to look afterward,” explains the article. “People who had a face-lift and neck lift looked an average of 5.7 years younger post-surgery. Adding in eyelid work shaved off nearly two additional years…” Although every patient's results are different and an exact number of years can never be guaranteed, these new objective measures can certainly help patients set realistic plastic surgery goals. Now read on to learn about a few of the facial procedures used in this study.
