Rhinoplasty Can Make You Look Younger

Rhinoplasty Can Make You Look Younger

While there are many cosmetic procedures designed to combat the signs of ageing, one lesser-known option that could make a significant difference is a rhinoplasty.

According to recent research, a rhinoplasty can help patients appear years younger than they are.

Here, we’ll explore the findings of the research, and how a rhinoplasty procedure can help reduce the signs of ageing.

Up to seven years younger

Researchers at UCLA used machine learning to examine before-and-after photos of 100 female patients, aged 16 to 72, who underwent rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons. The AI tool analysed these photos, taken at least 12 weeks after surgery, to estimate changes in age appearance.

The results, published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, showed that many of the women looked noticeably younger after their procedures. This was especially true for those over 40, with some appearing up to seven years younger.

These exciting outcomes suggest rhinoplasty could be a powerful anti-ageing tool, though further research is needed to confirm these findings due to the small number of participants it included.

How can rhinoplasty reduce the signs of ageing?

Rhinoplasty, often called a nose job, is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of the nose. This can involve adjusting the bones and cartilage to improve how the nose looks or functions. As people age, their nose can change in ways that make them appear older. The tip of the nose may droop, the nose might get longer, and the base can become wider. These changes can make the whole face look older.

When a rhinoplasty is performed, it can help lift the tip of the nose and make it look more refined, which helps counteract the drooping. It can also make the nose look shorter and narrower, which matches better with the rest of the facial features and enhances overall facial balance. This helps make the face look younger and more symmetrical.

By making these adjustments, a rhinoplasty doesn’t just change the nose – it improves the appearance of the entire face. This is why more people are seeing rhinoplasty not just to correct or improve the shape of their nose, but also as an effective anti-ageing treatment.

Discover anti-ageing solutions that suit you

Rhinoplasty offers significant anti-ageing benefits by altering the central feature of the face, which dramatically affects perceived age. This is particularly beneficial for those who notice ageing most around the mid-face and nose area.
