How Much Younger Does Facial Rejuvenation Surgery Make You Look?

It has been debated among plastic surgeons for  many years as to how much younger apatient looks after facial rejuvenation surgery.


A group of plastic surgeons recently set out to answer this question.  This study included 54 women and 6 men, ages 45 to 72.  They all underwent cosmetic facial rejuvenation surgery.  The study revealed that those who underwent face-lift and necklift surgery alone, looked an average of 5.7 year younger.  


By adding eyelid surgery, another 2 years were gained.  Adding a brow-lift, another year.  People who had all four procedures on average looked 8.4 years younger. All the procedures were performed by the same plastic surgeon.


Facial rejuvenation is a cosmetic treatment (or series of cosmetic treatments), which aims to restore a youthful appearance to the human face. Facial rejuvenation can be achieved through either surgical and/or non-surgical options.


Procedures can vary in invasiveness and depth of treatment. Surgical procedures can restore facial symmetry through targeted procedures and facial restructuring and skin alterations. Non-surgical procedures can target specific depths of facial structures and treat localized facial concerns such as wrinkles, skin laxity, hyper-pigmentation and scars.
