Nose Jobs Make People Look Younger – in Plastic Surgery from MedPage Today

There is a fascinating story in this month’s Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery and in MedPage Today about perceived age and the length of the nose.  A long nose with a droopy tip ages your appearance!  Also, did you know that as you continue to age, your nose continues to grow and to droop along with your ears and the rest of your face?  It’s true!

Check out these photos of Vienna Girardi and Ella Nolan from ABC’s the Bachelor and the Bachelor Pad before and after their rhinoplasties (nose jobs) by Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose, MD in these photos and read the rest of the stories below.  Don’t you agree they look younger after their surgery?

People who’d had their noses surgically reshaped had a somewhat more youthful appearance afterward — whatever their age, researchers said.

Independent raters who examined before-and-after photographs of mostly young and middle-age individuals undergoing cosmetic rhinoplasty indicated that, on average, the patients looked 1.5 years younger in the “after” pictures , according to Ali Sepehr, MD, and colleagues at the University of Toronto.

Patients’ age at the time of surgery had only a small effect on the apparent age reduction, the researchers reported.

“To our knowledge, this is the first study to demonstrate a statistically significant decrease in apparent age after rhinoplasty,” Sepehr and colleagues wrote in the January-February issue of Archives of Facial and Plastic Surgery.  See an excerpt of their story here: The Effect of Rhinoplasty on Perceived Age.

The study involved 53 consecutive patients having cosmetic nose surgery in a large private practice, for whom frontal and right lateral images were available prior to the procedure and one year afterward.

Relatively large nasal tip rotations also boosted the younger look. The eight patients having tip rotations of more than 10° looked an average of 2.0 years younger, compared with 1.3 years lost among the other patients.

“Older patients tended to enjoy a greater degree of rejuvenation,” they wrote. But differences in the apparent age reduction failed to reach statistical significance (P=0.15) in a trend analysis comparing patients in their teens, those ages 20 to 40, and those older than 40.

The researchers noted that the primary goal of nose reshaping is generally to improve the overall facial aesthetic. “This finding [of apparent age reduction] can pleasantly surprise patients presenting for rhinoplasty,” Sepehr and colleagues wrote.

“The rejuvenating effect of rhinoplasty can now objectively be listed as one of the benefits of undergoing this procedure.”

Happy New Year: The Busiest Season for Cosmetic Surgery

Happy New Year: The Busiest Season for Cosmetic Surgery

Happy New Year: The Busiest Season for Cosmetic Surgery

Beauty takes no holiday.

Happy New Year: The Busiest Season for Cosmetic Surgery December, particularly the latter half, is the busiest time of the year for many plastic surgeons, cosmetic dermatologists and doctors who perform weight-loss operations like gastric bypass. Some doctors say they do twice as many of these elective procedures per day in this period as during the rest of the year.

The reason: After many cosmetic procedures patients want to go underground during the days-long recovery period, which might involve swelling, bruising and oozing. The holiday season makes it easier to avoid interacting with others at work or in school car pools. This year, with Christmas and New Year’s both falling on weekends, a patient can be under the knife or laser beams early in the week and still be presentable by the time the parties start.

For plastic surgeons, the most popular procedures for December are those that require the most time for healing, like face-lifts. Dr. Franklin Rose, a plastic surgeon in Houston, says this month has been his busiest ever. He performed about 20 operations a week, twice the norm during the year. He routinely was operating well into the night, missing out on visits to the gym and attending holiday parties with family. “With surgeons in December, you can have some unhappy wives,” Dr. Rose says.
