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!

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.
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.”

Vienna Girardi Bachelor Pad
Many Hollywood stars refuse to age gracefully – instead choosing to go under the knife in an attempt to slow down Father Time. The Enquirer had top cosmetic surgeons analyze some of today’s hottest celebrities to get their professional opinions in a recent issue with Dr. Franklin Rose‘s patient Vienna Girardi making the cut:
“I love my new nose,” says “Bachelor” and “Bachelor Pad” vet VIENNA GIRARDI, who’s been wanting to change her big schnozz ever since she was 9. Now 25, the beauty decided the time was right when she got a look at the new nose of Bachelor Pad cast mate Erica Rose, compliments of her dad, Houston-based plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose. Vienna made an appointment and, voila, a beautiful new nose from Dr. Rose.
