On the perception of aging…

A patient I recently saw in consultation for a Mini-facelift asked an interesting question: “Do facelift patients have a hard time adjusting to their new, younger appearance?”  Without hesitation, my answer was “No”. As I thought about it, I realized why, and a quick internet search confirmed my suspicion.  A common comment from patients is, “I’m here for a consult because how I look doesn’t match how I feel.   This study indicates that most people, and baby boomers in particular, feel younger than they look.  In effect, then, a facial rejuvenation procedure actually improves the balance between how patients feel and what they see in the mirror.  It’s always nice when science confirms something I’ve seen for years-
