Facelift Study Finds Patients Feel 12 Years Younger

At his Atlanta plastic surgery practice, Dr. John LeRoy recently addressed the results of a cosmetic enhancement study concluding the facelift—also one of the ten most performed procedures in the U. S.—makes patients look 12 years younger. Conducted by American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) member Dr. Eric Swanson, the study surveyed 122 facelift patients with an average age of 57, from 2002-2007 [1]. While the study did not include data concerning the Band Aid facelift, a procedure Dr. LeRoy developed, he says he strives to keep his patients informed and up-to-date on all cosmetic enhancement news and research because he believes in supporting the formation of patient expectations and goals.

Dr. LeRoy says the standout statistics from the study concern overall patient satisfaction, as an overwhelming majority reported positive feedback from others (90%), high self-esteem (80%), and improvement in quality of life (70%). Dr. LeRoy says the amount of recovery time required is another important fact to note, which showed an average of 24 days off work. He adds that while results are not as dramatic, his mini facelift procedure does not require long recovery times, and patients at his Atlanta plastic surgery practice have indicated their results last an average of 10 years.

In a similar report concerning 2010 plastic surgery statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) [2], nonsurgical procedures accounted for 83% of all cosmetic enhancement procedures performed in the U. S. Due to this recent and dramtic increase in procedures such as BOTOX Cosmetic®, dermal fillers, and facelifts, Dr. LeRoy says he expects the desire for less-invasive procedures to continue to grow with the recovering economy. He adds that while the methods may change, the desire for a younger, more vibrant aesthetic does not.
