One question I’m always asked as a Fort Myers plastic surgeon is how much younger will I look? Wow – that’s a tough one to answer – it’s so subjective. I read about a recent study in the “Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery.” It was done by a group of researchers at the University of Toronto.

Patients were ages 45-72 and placed in 3 groups.

Group 1: face/neck lift

Group 2: face/neck lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty (eyelid)

Group 3: face/neck lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, coronal lift (forehead)

They then asked medical students to be the judges. They asked the students about there chronological age before and after surgery.

Group 1: patients looked 5.7 years younger

Group 2: patients looked 7.5 years younger

Group 3: patients looked 8.4 years younger

So I guess we can conclude the more facial plastic surgery you have, the younger you’ll look!
