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.

Wrinkles May Mask Your Real Emotions

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.

More Than Just Vanity

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.

Finding a Manhattan Anti-Aging Surgeon

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.
