A recent study found that women who underwent certain procedures intended to “rejuvenate” their face scored higher for positive personality traits by strangers, according to a LiveScience article on April 9.
Researchers asked 170 strangers to rate never seen before and after photos of 30 Caucasian women who underwent facial cosmetic surgery. The women experienced facial procedures such as brow lifts, chin implants, neck lifts, as well as procedures involving the skin above and below the eyes. Dr. Michael Reilly, one of the study’s co-authors, said it was not clear which features exactly contributed to the increased perception of positivity. However, the study may contribute to the body of knowledge studied by those researching facial perceptions.
Scientific studies continue to reinforce the idea that cosmetic surgery increases the natural appeal of a person’s appearance.
