We often associate facial rejuvenation surgery with youth and beauty—but what if it could make you more likable? According to a recent study published in the journal, JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery—this surprising revelation may prove to be true. The study is the first to research and measure social implications of plastic surgery outside of the perception of youthfulness. Looking to see if facial profiling exists, researchers set out to evaluate and examine the changes in personality perception that occur with facial rejuvenation.
Facial Profiling: The act of determining personality attributes through visual observation
A total of 173 participants (110 women, 63 men) viewed photos of 30 women previous to and after facial rejuvenation surgery. The women underwent one or more procedures in the form of facelifts, upper and lower eye lifts, eyebrow lifts, neck lift, or chin implants. The subjects were asked to assess the women’s appeared level of aggressiveness, extroversion, likeability, trustworthiness, risk seeking, social skill, attractiveness, and femininity. The same patient’s preoperative and postoperative photos were not shown together to any person in order to eliminate recall bias. Woman who underwent facial plastic surgery were perceived as more likeable, attractive, to possess better social skills, and appeared more feminine than previous to their operations.
The study concludes that “facial plastic surgery changes the perception of patients by those around them”. Illuminating that facial rejuvenation surgery extends beyond beauty and influences greater “dimensions of a patient’s facial profile”.
