Are You Sad, Angry, or None of the Above?
by Dr. Steven Wallach
Getting old means getting wrinkles, fine lines, and creases. However, as if these physical signs of aging aren’t bad enough, it looks like individuals with wrinkles may have to deal with misconstrued emotions and facial expressions! Here at our Manhattan facial rejuvenation practice, some of our patients have admitted that they are often mistaken as upset or mad when in fact they aren’t.
What our patients tell us is no surprise. In fact, this LiveScience article talked about the results of a study in which participants are asked to rate the faces of both younger and older adults. It turns out that the faces of older adults are perceived to be more sad and angry than the younger ones. In fact, all faces in the photographs have neutral expressions.
Such findings show that plastic surgery is more than just dealing with vanity. We understand that there are much deeper reasons why a patient may seek Botox or dermal fillers. It may be an employee who is often perceived at work as grumpy. Such misperception may even cost him a promotion.
A facelift or Botox does more than rejuvenate your face, chin, and neck. These procedures also help you to be more confident with yourself and how you interact with others as well. To schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Wallach for your questions on Manhattan plastic surgeries, call us at (210) 495-4100 or fill out this appointment request form. We look forward to your visit!

I’m so happy with the results from the Botox shots that Dr. Wallach performed on me. He spent a lot of time talking about the different fillers that would make my face look the most natural and youthful.
