A patient I recently saw in consultation for a mini-facelift at my practice in Denver, CO, 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.
