Face Lift Surgery: How young will you look?
According to a study by Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), patients who have had a face lift report that they look an average of 12 years younger after surgery.
Dr. Eric Swanson conducted as analysis of 122 patients who had a face lift between 2002 and 2007. There were 82 women and 11 men interviewed. The patients were extremely satisfied with their results. The “average subjective reduction” in perceived age was 11.9 years. 97% of those interviewed said the results met their expectations and 40% rated the results even better than expected.
Almost 90% reported that they received positive reactions to their improved appearance. More than 80% reported improved self-esteem.
