Layton Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is supposed to make your face look different. But the impacts of procedures can go far beyond a change in physical appearance: People could perceive your post-surgery personality differently, too, new research suggests.
People rated women who received certain kinds of facial rejuvenation procedures as being more likable, attractive and feminine than women who hadn’t yet undergone operations, according to a study women who underwent the procedures were also perceived to have more social skills, the study found.
“Our faces are conveying these traits, even when we’re not intending to,” said study co-author Michael J. Reilly, an assistant professor of facial reconstructive surgery at the Georgetown University School of Medicine. “All of our faces do this all of the time, but some of our faces are more prone to expressing an emotion.”
